A mother's plea for justice

Nothing can make up to his family for the loss of Henry, of course.  But that doesn’t mean that they don’t want justice to be done.  News of his death finally hit the Knoxville paper this morning.  He was assaulted over a month ago.  Up till now I would...

Scary

Years ago, John and I were Hillary and Bill Clinton for Halloween.  For some reason, the little people love to pull out the Hillary mask and chase each other around laughing madly.  I thought it looked interesting discarded there on my “antique” porch...

Just for fun

Once again I have pulled out some random pictures from my bottomless box for some quick inspiration: This was taken in February 1996, at Teddy’s first birthday party.  I remember it well–an Italian dinner for 27, followed by cake and presents.  Watching...

The Terrifying Teens

The Terrifying Teens

The thing about being the mother of three preschoolers is that eventually you will be the mother of three teenagers.  You hear a lot about the Terrible Twos, but what about the Terrifying Teens? With three teenagers in my house this summer, and with the tragedy of...
