Getting To Try Some New Things

I’ve been a blogger now for about 408 posts, and I’d like to think I’ve learned a thing or two.  Maybe three.  No, more like two, who am I kidding?  But hey, even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while. This is Beth’s first year teaching writing at Medway Middle, and she has …

Heroic Treasure Hunt

Okay, a bit of hyperbole in the title, but who doesn’t want to be a hero? It was the evening after the Medway Lady Huskies won their semi-final game, securing themselves a berth in the final.  The kids and I were home and my mother had gone back to Millinocket.  I got a phone call …

And I Shall Name Him George

Do you remember that old Loony Tunes (I know, I thought it was Toons, too.) episode where the big dumb abominable snow-man gets a hold of Daffy and loves him so much that he ends up mauling him half to death? I feel that way about my blog sometimes.  It’s a funny thing.  I want it to …

So yeah, that happened!

A most excellent thing happened yesterday (and not just the dance recital, more on that later). I received a tweet from the Autism Society of America saying that they like my blog, and we’re going to share it with their followers! A little back story: I work 7 days/week most weeks and started documenting our …

Time To Weed The Garden

A Blog is like a Garden. A wise woman once told me that. You get out of it what you put into it. It takes discipline, and attention, and even a little love. When it’s bountiful, you can share your work with the neighbors. When neglected, it gets all full of weeds and goes to …
