The Infamous Photo Post (best of)

Here is another retrospective post from my old blog. This was one of my more popular posts, and I figured I’d share it again.  I will mention this, I don’t do the Duggers.  I just don’t get it. I don’t care how many kids they have or any of that, and that’s just it I don’t have cable, and I don’t care.

Still So Lucky

Well, despite my two dollar donation, the Gods of Powerball did not answer my call.  So, I will continue to try to change to world my own way.  Would have been a lot easier with seventy-five million dollars. Last night, after dinner, a new Paul Simon song came on the radio.  The dude just turned seventy, and he’s still rockin’.  Liam loved it and he calls out from the back seat of the car, “Mommy I like this music!”  Oh, he is so my son, further proven by the fact… Read more Still So Lucky
