More Artwork: You’ve Come a Long Way

Almost 5 years ago, I posted some of my Little One Abbie’s artwork. Now that she’s a full-fledged high-schooler, calling her “Little One” feels a little creepy, and reminds me too much of Lwaxana Troi. (But I still sometimes do it anyway.) Anyhoo, in the intervening years, she’s been posting lots of stuff on her […]

A Walk through the Forest

Nothing like taking a hike with someone you love, during the first sunny days of Spring. And that’s what I and my Beloved did this past Monday. It was the first time we had visited Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest. But since we’ve moved to the Merrimack Valley, it’s now a 10 minute car ride down a […]

Found in My Bathroom

Looks like somebody left a little pea on the toilet seat… Have a great weekend! -TimK P.S. Photo courtesy my daughter, Abbie.

Nemo: Good, Bad, and Beautiful

Now that the storm is passed, and we’re all dug out—which is a whole other story, for another time—we can look back at the fun, the pain, and even the beauty Nemo left us. The funnest part, of course—for many of us—was being bundled up safe at home, with plenty of supplies, while the cold […]

Let It Snow: The Blizzard of ’13

The bill has come due for the mild winter we had last year. And since Punxsutawney Phil (played by the classic actor Bill Murray) has predicted an early spring—which here in New England means snow, rain, sleet, hail, and 90-degree swelter, all within a 24-hour period… Since Phil has predicted an early spring, God has […]

Bits & Pieces 2013-01-24

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. Some Random Photos Because I didn’t pull out an entertaining and interesting image for any of the other blurbs in this post. (Sorry.)

Bits & Pieces 2012-11-08

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. First Snow Or to quote Lorelai Gilmore: “Ladies and gentlemen, we have flakes. Flakes have been sighted. Flakage, if you will, has begun.” Yesterday afternoon and into the night, the season’s first snow in the Boston area (and if I recall correctly, in New England generally). I […]

Some More Photos I Found on My Cell Phone

Some time ago, I posted some miscellaneous cellphone pictures that had been taken on my old cell phone. Now that I have a new smartphone, with a (slightly) higher resolution camera, it seems lots more pictures get taken. And most of them not by me. Actually, my Little One, “Abbie the Artist,” has been taking […]

Bits & Pieces 2012-08-30

Links and things that I’ve run across recently. Hey, Can I Get Facebook on This Thing? August 1 was the 30’th anniversary of the release of the Commodore 64 home computer. To commemorate the event, Pingdom posted a series of C-64 photos on his blog, and I guess, yeah, we all looked pretty dorky back […]

The Man With the Scary Scissors

I think this is the last Dave Ramsey story I’ll tell for a little while. (Or at least the last big one.) But I have to at least tell this one, because I’ve already told it to several friends, several times, and it’s turned out to be a hoot. Dave Ramsey is famous for cutting […]
