Stranger Than Fiction - A True Story

"Let's Do Lunch" In 1857, in a remote village of Southern Italy, two brothers, ages 4 and 7, sat still long enough to eat lunch together in their three-story stone and brick home while looking out at the landscape. They saw rolling hills dotted with mulberry and olive trees, with a sky so clear it... Sign in to see full entry.

Light My Fire

"It'll Be Ready by Tomorrow" I n California there are many places where it isn't safe to have a wood-burning fireplace (think wildfires), and in some areas they are outlawed as a safety precaution.

Grandson Update: "Look Ma, I'm Surfing!"

"Mommy, the Baby's Shaaavvving..."

Wheel of (Mis)Fortune

"That's My Money He Took!" During a trip to Las Vegas in my early 20s, I had dropped some cash on a table where they spun a big wheel, and if it stopped on your number, you won. It was called The Wheel of Fortune. After a few spins, my number hit! I was so thrilled I couldn't help from jumping up... Sign in to see full entry.

Desecration in the Classroom

Your Teacher Did What??!!! My girls were voracious readers as children. When my eldest was in 3rd grade, she had her "outside" reading, her free-reading, with her at all times. In class, the book of choice would be stashed in her desk. And, yep, she was known to open said desktop and sneak a... Sign in to see full entry.

Peeping Toms?

Drone On, Neighbor This has been one long day, but just to keep everyone posted, when it comes to neighbors, I have had some of the worst. The guy two doors up the street has a drone.

He Found $65,000 in Greenbacks

A Sack of Cash My dad was known to enjoy a day at the races on a day off from work, the horse races, that is. One day he came home from the track and mentioned that he had found a bag of cash. Said it was about $65,000 in green stuffed into a plain sack. We asked him what he did with it, thinking... Sign in to see full entry.

Death on a Date

" Omigod, I'm Gonna Die!!!" It was supposed to be a fun date with a great guy, who just happened to be really good-looking. We'd been dating for a while, it was a Friday night and we were going to an amusement park about 35 miles away, just to do something different. Neither one of us were really...
