The Love Of A Senior

by Houndstooth on

Senior Moments

by Houndstooth on

This week, I have found myself really under the weather.   I gave in and called in sick so I could take some medicine, which I can’t do if I want to wake up when the alarm clock goes off and be a functioning human being.  I don’t know why, but my body has never […]

Excuse You Very Much

If you read Bunny’s post yesterday, you know that we had a hiking outing this weekend.  I admit, it was nice to be back and I felt like we’d been away from hiking too long.  A variety of things has kept us away, like weather, injuries, family obligations and life in general. One thing I […]

All Hail Queen B

Party Like A Rock Star

by Houndstooth on

Lilac continues to amaze me.  I never dreamed that she would strike a chord with so many of our readers, or that she’d be with us long enough to celebrate her Sweet Sixteen.  The post last week about her birthday has by far been the most popular of the blog’s history.  I knew that her […]

Are You There, God? It’s Me, Lilac’s Person…
