Rebecca had another really good day. In the morning, she helped me pull weeds from the front & side yards, carrying the bucket from spot to spot as I directed. When I mowed in back, I asked if she wanted to stay outside: “I don’t want to” (her new favorite phrase). She stayed inside and[...]
My wife usually works four 10-hour shifts each week, with three days off. When we made the date mistake regarding Valentina’s visit (mentioned here), she’d requested four days off to accommodate Val’s stay, though as it turns out they were the wrong four days. So, with the normal three days off before and the normal[...]
Early wake-up call today; Rebecca bounded out of bed at 6 a.m., happy as a clam. But she made it less than three hours before needing a nap. Fortunately, that was about the time my wife left for her hair appointment.
(When I searched Google for “Chris Taylor & Windows” (in quotes), the search engine told me that nothing was found. Perhaps this blog post can correct that.) Chris Taylor was a ridiculously skinny white guy (in that respect, he was very similar to me) that I knew when I lived in South Texas as a[...]
(Copyright © 2009 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) I didn’t blog about the death of Michael Jackson when it happened, because it just didn’t seem like the right thing to do. The rest of the world was doing that. Also, I was never a Michael Jackson fan. What!? Was I the only[...]
For about 10 weeks now, my wife has been pulling for David Cook, one of the American Idol contestants. I joined her in this pursuit after Michael Johns was voted off the show. Tonight, we waited with baited breath to hear Cook’s finale versus the smooth-singing David Archuleta, who’s been a fan favorite for most[...]
Well, it’s finale week on American Idol. I’m hoping we see something like this (Fantasia), or maybe even this (Clay). Just listen to them, if you have a minute or two. (I know Clay didn’t win, but you’ll agree he should have, after listening to his final performance.) We also saw brilliant finale performances from[...]
I was right. Taylor won it. And he should have. Last night, he outsang the girl six ways from Sunday. Anyway, that’s my take on it.
Thanks to Mark for finally dropping by for a comment. Buddy, I know you’re having troubles, but it always works out in the end — sometimes we just can’t see how. Keep doing your best, and you’ll be rewarded. (I don’t mean to sound like a fortune cookie; I really mean all that crap.) Sad[...]
Well, HELLO ALL! I just survived another whirlwind couple of days that nearly left me breathless. Okay… I AM breathless. Marline flew in Saturday evening, and left again at 5:10 p.m. today — She was here almost exactly 48 hours. During that time, we reaffirmed our compatibility in a hundred different areas, she met[...]
