Our dog, Maggie. Maggie-Waggy we call her. Her tail is hurricaneous in it swishing!!
She is every bit her 12 years. Her muzzle is greying. Her hearing is failing. She sleeps a lot.
But every once in a while, the puppy in her springs to life and oh! the glory of the chase, oh! the joy of the playfulness.
Here, I had interrupted a nap she was taking while lying on her back with paws curled up on her belly. Why was that even comfortable!!!??

What was little Paul thinking? It was a hot afternoon, he wasn't at his own home, there were a lot of adults around, the door was shut. That would make anyone pout!

So I go to church, not because of any legalistic or moralistic reasons, but because I am a hungry sheep who needs to be fed; and for the same reason that I wear a wedding ring: a public witness of a private commitment.
Why do you go to church?

Flannery O'Connor once said, “Everywhere I go I’m asked if I think the university stifles writers. My opinion is that they don’t stifle enough of them. There’s many a bestseller that could have been prevented by a good teacher.”

There I was, yesterday morning, minding my own business. I was at Perks, the coffee shop around the corner from my house. Sitting in my usual chair, I was reading Respectable Sins for the upcoming book group discussion. On the table was one of my Latin books as I was soon going to study for the 4th year class.
From behind me came the question, "Is this yours?" A large red book appeared in the hands of the employee. She had noticed my green book as being very similar to the red one which had been sitting behind the counter for the last two weeks.
If I'd known that all I had to do was post on this blog about the black hole that seems to eat voraciously all things Parsons, I would have done so long ago! But actually, two fine ladies, Margie and Lynn, both offered me their copies to replace the one I thought I'd never see again. Perhaps the kindness of friends is what God wanted me to know while I waited for him to return MY book!!

Does your home have a black hole? You know - the place where socks and little T-shirts and glasses and puzzle pieces and pens disappear.
Well, my Latin teacher's guide, precious to me for years of notes and Latin Jeopardy games - yes!! - has evaporated from plain view. It was there one minute and invisible the next.
Mystified, unsettled, frustrated, I keep looking in the same places thinking that - as mysteriously as it disappeared - it will reappear. Maybe with some of those socks whose lonely partners sit hopefully awaiting the return of their match. Where, O Where are you, my personal black hole? Won't you regurgitate your purloined meals!!

My lovely daughter, Rachael, graduated from home school high school three years ago. The festivities occurred in our back yard one fine June evening. As shadows began to gather, she shines here in her flash-free fineness.

On a very green day, perfect for a bridal shower in June, my lovely daughter-in-law (then to-be) and her grandmother were very UNfrog-like in their stunning greens amidst the cool verdent shade of the trees. When you are this beautiful, it's easy bein' green.
Meet all the other greenies at i heart faces.
