  • Drywall Part II

    Ahh, drywall.  You have been a challenging wench.  First, our drywaller’s wife had a baby, and he nearly stopped showing up to work.  He would tape here, hang a sheet or two and dash home to his newborn.  Frankly, I didn’t blame him – babies are lovely – but we were 31 days into our […]

  • ChewBecca

    We were invited to a birthday party tonight and some of my students were there to celebrate with the birthday girl.  Jude fell in love with one super sweet girl named Becca, and began tugging her around by the hand, asking her to be his partner in everything.  I tried to teach him her name […]

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
