  • Guitar

    There is a story that is often told about a young Bradley, and a guitar.  Bradley’s grandparents lived near the Alderwood Mall, a place that, now, does not seem all that country.  But when they bought the property back in the late 60’s or early 70’s where the Alderwood Mall stands now was all swamp […]

  • B&T in the Big D

    Bradley and I have a long standing tradition of self portraits.  We did it back in the day with film, and found that many of the pictures were some of our best, so we have kept the tradition.  Besides that, if we didn’t take advantage of my husband’s long arms, we’d never have pictures with […]

  • A Very Merry Unbirthday!

    Bradley has a dreaded December birthday.  Most people assume that Christmas is a pretty bad day, and it is, I have a brother with a Christmas birthday.  But Bradley’s birthday falls on December 29th, between Christmas and New Years, when nobody wants to party or shop!  When we got together he made a request that […]

  • Binary

    I got a really cool, really geeky watch.

You add up the […]

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    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…
