  • Fixit

    Not to brag, but I am pretty proud that I was able to lay hundreds of feet of flooring this weekend, come home Sunday night to problem-solve and fix the water pump on the dishwasher (cheap piece of junk), then get up and take apart my netbook and fix the keyboard pincard connetor.  I am […]

  • Bamboo Beginning

    I started laying the bamboo flooring this afternoon and it is going down pretty nicely.  I had to run the flooring differently than I  wanted to take advantage of the floor joists, which makes the views between the rumpus and living rooms nice and long but shortens the view from the entryway… oh well, newcomers […]

    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!"

  • Nicknames 2013-01-04 21:30:33-

    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…
