Let Me Make This Perfectly Clear

Yesterday, in her interview with Matt Lauer on the Today Show, Dottie Sandusky said that she had the support of "most of her neighbors." I cannot speak for our neighbors, nor would I want to. But let me make this clear for everyone:

My family - the one living in the home that directly faces the Sandusky house - does not support Dottie or Jerry Sandusky.

I want to be sure that anyone we may ever come in contact with understands that.

And to address something that is a common response to us saying anything about this mess - "Why don't you move?" Let me ask you this: Do you want to buy our house?

More from my snow junkie fix...


A Beautiful Walk


These are just from the walk back home after taking Monkey1 to school this morning…

A Snowy Meditation


There are few things in this world more beautiful than a wet snowfall followed by complete and utter stillness. Lucky for me, I went out to shovel our driveway and found just such a sight. Even more lucky - I returned inside to 3 people to whom such beauty pales in comparison.

Happy Valentine’s Day to my wonderful family, and to you as well.

My Morning Greeting From the Cat

Cat: So last night, I tanked up on water and ate both bowls of cat food right before I had to hork up a hairball, because I know how much you love to smell and clean up my regurgitated food. There's a present for you in the living room, the kitchen, and in little spots all over that you'll randomly step in.

Me: Um, that's no present. And you know I'd rather lose my olfactory senses completely than smell that stuff, let alone clean it up.

Cat: Yeah, I do know that. But you're going to go and clean it up BECAUSE YOU'RE MY PUKE BITCH.

Me: I hate you with the burning intensity of a thousand white-hot stars.

Cat: You missed a spot over here, puke bitch...

I Love Animals...

Monday was the first day of deer season here in central PA. Schools were closed for the occasion. And the first 3 sentences of this sketch were stuck in my head the entire day.
