A Little Bit of History


A couple weeks ago I got to meet my newest nephew, Elijah! He had a rough start--born early, small, and not breathing--but now he is plumping up and puffing along wonderfully. Just check out this ridiculously turd-y photo my mom took of Audrey's three boys. I mean, give me a break.

Take Away!


I've been struggling to remember what this reminds me of. Maybe Jake trying to explain why I need to close the blinds when I undress.

A Little Bit O' Spring

“Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.”
- Virgil Kraft

A warm day got me off my butt and into a bookstore. I can go to bed happy.

The Queen and Mike Teavee

Mike Teavee. Source.

It's been a rough week. So, like many a mortal soul, I tried praying. I prayed and cried and gnashed my teeth. The whole shebang. There are people who receive clear, discernible answers from god. Yes. No. This will happen. This won't happen. This is right. This is wrong. Do this. Don't do that.

That is not the case for me. Rather, I typically find myself reenacting the scene from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory with god playing the part of Mike Teavee and me the part of Willy Wonka saying, "You should open your mouth a little wider when you speak."

{Also, just discovered Willy Wonka is quoting the Queen in Through the Looking Glass when he says this. Don't say I never taught you anything.}
