Simple Life

First Bake

Testing out the oven at the new house. Making dinner for the North Texas Troublemakers and enjoying the heck out of it. The kitchen is nowhere near fully operational, but it’s close enough to mix up a feast! Made a lovely discovery last night during the livestream. There is a cardinal nesting in the vines… Read More First Bake


Ghosts of Malta

The ghosts in this anthology are the stories themselves, haunting the tiny, indomitable island.  Ghosts of Malta is a collection of tales set on Malta, from authors scattered around the world, and a history you won’t want to miss by the LawDog himself.  I have a story in this one, along with many other great… Read More Ghosts of Malta

The Final Hurdle

We are in the last stages of this particular life adventure. One year ago I came down to Texas towing a loaded trailer, and spent the weekend at a gathering of friends before turning around and heading back to Ohio. Two days later, the whole family was in Texas to unload the big truck with… Read More The Final Hurdle



The sound you make when you hit the wall.  I’m trying not to wear myself out. Trying really hard. It’s just there are a lot of moving parts and I seem to be getting less sleep even though I’m lying down obediently at bedtime and getting up… ok, last couple of mornings I was already… Read More Wubbuda
