After the Candy

"What's that Noise?" In keeping with the theme of Valentine's Day being over, I am reminded of one day in late spring when my daughter was in about the 7th grade. She was complaining of hearing very slight noises at night; almost a rustling sound. Now, you gotta know, I didn't conduct room... Sign in to see full entry.

The Origin of Valentine's Day One legend says that Valentine's Day was sparked between the embrace of two Italian lovers, Sabino and Serapia (one was Christian and the other Pagan).

Laissez les Bons Temps Roulez (I know I promised everyone a fuzzy, feel-good story, and it's coming. Meanwhile, today I think of my Uncle B.)

Daddy and the Red Sports Car

"Where Are You Gonna Put the Kids?" My dad was so sweet, so lovable; a soft-spoken (for an Italian), mild-mannered kind of guy who wore a bow tie with a white shirt that had multiple colored pens and a Scripto mechanical pencil in the pocket, complete with pocket protector. He wore a dark felt... Sign in to see full entry.

When a Man Screams...

"I Heard That!" Went to the dental office today for my regular cleaning. This office is relatively new to me, and I've never had the actual dentist do any dental work on my teeth.
