The Big U of K

Monday, September 10th, 2012

You may not have noticed, but I sent my son to college recently. I held it together pretty well, considering how strongly I feel about my kiddo. The outpouring of calls I got was very touching … people checked on me for several days after the move to make sure I wasn’t committing empty-nest seppuku. […]

Chipmonkey Porn

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Let me tell you, the Chipmonkey gets an awful lot of action, and all across the globe, too! You may remember the monkey-on-monkey love in Kenya, for example: 140206 Chipmonkey’s adventures continued when I finally got Chip-the-human down to my home away from home, the Florida Keys. We stayed here: 149914 Or, more specifically, here: […]

Surfing! 146885

I should learn to keep my mouth shut …

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

No time at all passed between my last post and a series of events that ensured I was unable to “just chill” and enjoy having finished school. First of all, our house was burglarized. While it may have been something of an overreaction, I took that as a sign that it was time to move. […]

Happy Birthday, Kory

Saturday, July 31st, 2010

Kory turns sixteen this week. I’m pretty sure I mentioned last year that I would be fairly freaked out by this milestone, but I like to think I’m taking it well. Kory is a fantastic person. I don’t take credit for all he’s become, but I am ridiculously proud nonetheless. Kory has an amazing ability […]

Facebook Killed My Blog

Friday, June 11th, 2010

Here’s how blogs happen: People have stuff they want to share. People create blogs so they can share interesting information and photos with others People read blogs. That’s pretty much it, but since Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking sites have become so popular, the need for a blogger to share her or his thoughts […]

Leave sooner, drive slower, live longer

Saturday, March 6th, 2010

I gave Kory his first driving lesson today. Chip tagged along, even though there really aren’t supposed to be other people in the car, because we needed a pylon. 114436 Just kidding. But, wow, that is one orange shirt. Anyway, the day was perfect for the maiden voyage of the as-yet-unnamed Subaru. The sun was […]

Digital Insanity

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

Do you remember when you had to wait for hours, even days, before you could see the results of your photographic efforts?  As someone who used to work with film, and with photographers, I can tell you that, on average, a very good photographer can get two to seven good shots for every twenty-four frame […]

Primates and Progeny

Saturday, August 15th, 2009

So, Kory turned fifteen, and I didn’t post anything about it because I’m still coping. I have no idea why fifteen is such a big deal to me, but I am just amazed at how quickly he is growing up and I’ve been downright despondent about this birthday. To celebrate, we met the Koch family […]
