Do Goodery on a Coffee Cup

This morning I met a friend for coffee at Caribou down on the Southside. I had grabbed a cup of coffee, and really didn't pay too much attention to the cup, until way after my date with my friend was over. When I took a look at it, I marveled. ...more

Today I decided to do a Photo shoot with my girls, and Bodhi our Golden before Lu and the boys head out to their vacation in Washington next week.  Lu had fun posing even though I tried to get her to act natural, and Bella... well she did whatever she wanted which was fine with me. She conveniently looked everywhere BUT at the camera for most shots. I realized lately that I have enjoyed taking pictures so much....more

Purging the Clutter

These past few weeks we have been moving my mom-in-law out of her rented house and into her mom's house, in order to care for her own mother. Glenn and his brother worked relentlessly, packing her up, and moving.

In The Line of Duty

I am 15 stories off the ground, and right next door to the city county building.A few days ago three police officers were killed in the line of duty. It was a senseless killing, and devastated the entire city. We as a collective unit are reeling. Here is the Story ...more
