National Literacy Month: What book got you hooked on reading?

I’m still clean­ing up the blog, try­ing to com­bat link rot. Some­how, I fell into look­ing at the draft posts. This one is from 2009 and I haven’t the fog­gi­est notion as to why I did­n’t pub­lish it. Today’s prompt is from Barnes & Noble’s Face­book page: Sep­tem­ber is Nation­al Lit­er­a­cy Month. What book got you hooked […]

Social Sunday

I had a love­ly day. This after­noon I went to Fud­druck­ers with James, Steve and some oth­er folks. We went by Phoenix and Drag­on on the way home. Then I spent sev­er­al hours chat­ting with an old friend online. We got all caught up and he taught me some­thing, too. We shared some great mem­o­ries. I’ll […]

Last Library Visit

Plinky asked, “When was the last time you vis­it­ed a library?” About a month ago, when I renewed my Gwin­nett Coun­ty library card so I could check out dig­i­tal items from that library. Dekalb Coun­ty’s library does­n’t have e‑books yet, and they make up 99% of my book read­ing habits these days. I adore libraries. I […]

What was your favourite part about returning to school?

The NaBloPo­Mo prompt for today: What was your favourite part about return­ing to school? That’s not an easy ques­tion. It was­n’t cool to acknowl­edge being hap­py to return to school each year, of course, so while I was glad, I did­n’t real­ly acknowl­edge it to myself. As a result, it is more dif­fi­cult to access those […]

Happy Birthday, Daddy & Matt!

I spent most of today with my fam­i­ly at my par­ents’ house. It was a won­der­ful vis­it! I got to meet my youngest nephew, Eli, for the first time. I was ill every time my broth­er and his brood came to town after his birth last fall (turned out I had pneumonia—I real­ly should learn to […]

Mortality and Spring

I’ve had an odd mix of thoughts today. Mom called last night (Fri­day), and I learned that Dad­dy has had sev­er­al bad falls recent­ly. He was out of town for a busi­ness trip most of this week and end­ed up spend­ing a night in the hos­pi­tal while there, after a fall in the show­er. The […]

My Hometown

While brows­ing the AJC this after­noon, I was sur­prised to find Gads­den, Alaba­ma fea­tured as a “one tank trip” des­ti­na­tion. I lived there for 7–8 years as a child and spent sev­er­al sum­mers there in my teens, and had­n’t ever heard of any of the men­tioned attrac­tions oth­er than Noc­calu­la Falls. I was even more […]
