Pulled Over - Again

"I Stopped You Because..." As a teen driver, I seemed to get stopped a lot. I didn't once get ticketed, mind you, just pulled over for a variety of odd reasons. I had my own car, an older two-tone black and white Merc, which I'd "purchased" from my dad (no, he would NOT give it to me, but he did... Sign in to see full entry.

When the Word is Right but the Meaning's Wrong

To a Child's Ears - and Eyes... Kids' minds collect and process information in ways adults don't always consider. For example, I had an uncle who was an engineer. His daughter and I were "bestie" cousins. When she was in her twenties she confessed to me that as a child she'd always thought her dad... Sign in to see full entry.

The Coolest Dad...

Not Really, but Just This Once The coolest thing I ever remember my dad letting me do was to DRIVE HIS CAR when I was twelve. Oh, the thrill of it! Before that happened I'd often sit behind the wheel, wishing I was sixteen and could drive. After all, I could drive bumper cars pretty good, couldn't... Sign in to see full entry.

They May be Angels, but They Can't Walk on Water

Even When You're 'Right There...' I was filled with deep sadness and a heavy heart when I heard of Olympian, Bode Miller's daughter, Emeline, drowning in a neighbor's swimming pool last Saturday. Her poor grandmother was the one to find her in the pool. Horror of horrors! And, Mother is pregnant.... Sign in to see full entry.

It's a Good Thing

Inclusion in Public Schools I usually keep it light here, so count this as just an "extra" post. I mentioned in a comment to Amanda that I might write a blurb about the choice of educators to add the policy of Inclusion to our schools. Inclusion is simply that; including children in the classroom,... Sign in to see full entry.

Keystone Cop Car Chase

Slow Speed We watched one of the most bizarre police pursuits here the night before last. Don't these people get it? They always (or almost always) get caught. The "chase" went on for almost two hours at speeds ranging from about 6 mph all the way up to 16 mph. At one point a citizen popped out of... Sign in to see full entry.

"Mmmm, Dog Meat!"

Lunch with Little RP My dad had an affinity for almost all things food. Little RP, on the other hand, did not seem to inherit that complete gene set. Sure, we both didn't care for horseradish, we both enjoyed our breads a little too much, and we both put butter on our biscotti, but lunch choices... Sign in to see full entry.

Big Ears

When the Grown-ups "Talked..." "We're Talking." Capital T. That's what I'd hear when I'd interrupt the adults too often at family gatherings. The grownups in my family would all get so engrossed in their conversations that sometimes they forgot kids were in the room. Usually though, they were very... Sign in to see full entry.

Do You Go with Your Gut

Go With Your Gut, or Not? I believe in this. It's something my mother taught us, which I then taught to my girls. But then... And just when you think it's safe to trust your gut, Psychology Today has this to say; more than you propbably ever wanted to know:... Sign in to see full entry.
