You Are More
Cooter has become fascinated with stories of things people got in trouble for when they were his age. He has had many conversations with his Daddy about his.

fighting fire with fire
My hero and friend, Hugh Hollowell, shared this on his Facebook page yesterday. It troubles, motivates, moves me. And scares the mess out of me, to be perfectly honest.

So here it goes. Today was Grand Opera House Day. I love live theater as I have mentioned before here.

For some reason, somebody decided that the Metric system would be a good thing to use, so her temp always registered on the Celsius scale. I finally looked up and found a… Continue reading Hey, This Alarm is Beeping!
