Some of you longtime readers of my blog might recognize these blocks. I constructed them with a charity quiltmaking effort in mind some time back. After I completed the blocks, I apparently lost focus on that project--probably thanks to another... Continue reading

Nancy’s hubby Dave drove me and Nancy to bee this morning through the wind and heavy rain. I was scheduled to drive, but when Dave volunteered, I quickly gave the job to him. The rain has moved out now, and... Continue reading

That’s how one reviewer described the novel, I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Ian Reid, which I have just finished reading. And I completely agree with that statement. The tension and the dread build from the first sentence until the... Continue reading
