Kim DuToit goes off on Grammar from time to time. I love these posts, because he's right and I agree with him. What people do to the English language is a sin and a crime against humanity. What makes me nuts most of all is when words are changed and people start repeating them like … Continue reading Words I Hate

Last night wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. After closing the computer down, I took off the boy's lampshade and laid down with him on the couch.

It seemed to coincide with colder weather so I was figuring that it was simply the water cooking off condensing on the top falling to the pavement. It vexed me something awful … Continue reading DOH!
Awhile back I did a post on the destructors. My three dogs. But I forgot one of the other creatures that live here. So I thought add her.
