Here is Sydney’s new buddy from Rural King. Then when we checked out with our tarp and stakes and dog treats, gummy worms and gummy bears and those yucky circus peanuts Der Bingle likes -as well as some wintergreen mints to send to Quentin along with a cute little brown resin bear that carries big […]

Up to the fight?

February 28th, 2009 · No Comments

Well, you know I watched “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” last night and a couple of days ago I was writing about Hub’s speech in “Secondhand Lions”. And, so now the lost cause mantra is in my mind – especially the part about lost causes being the only causes worth fighting for. I was puttering […]

King Grover in his Coke Room

February 28th, 2009 · No Comments

I was going to tape this on the refrigerator with the title of this post written beneath it. Der Bingle taped it up with “No Coke for You, Summer” written beneath. Oh, my goodness . . . Katie, bar the door.

Ah, another movie

February 27th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Well, Der Bingle walked in tonight in his trench coat and black fedora and Summer and Cameron were at his side from the get-go – still are in fact. At one point, after he’d changed clothes and when they were sitting in the den, he said, “AJ, they have found my stash of movies. But […]

King Grover of Coke went for a stroll with Summer and the next thing we knew, he transformed into Diet Coke Vampire King who craves the blood of those who drink Diet Coke. Oh, woe is us.

No school

February 26th, 2009 · No Comments

When I drove Alison to work this morning, it was very foggy and I think East Noble had already called a 2-Hour D. I worked a little and lay back down just because I wanted to do. Some time later I heard the cry of 3-Hour D and then a strangled scream of glee. Out […]

Hail the King

Grover has returned and been unanimously named King of Coke. He is welcoming one and all to a special party of celebration and unconditional amnesty. We welcome all the folks here at the PBC&R and anyone who wants to stop in. Say, does anyone have any confetti?

Possible last jog in Kendallville

February 25th, 2009 · No Comments

When Alison works as a nurse at the hospital, I drive her over sometime between 6:15 and 6:30 am. During quite a bit of the year, it is dark at that time – we are so far west in the Eastern Time Zone, dontcha know. When the snow is melting off the grass and fields […]

Grover is missing

February 24th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Yes, sometime yesterday after arriving home from school and learning about Grover’s promotion to the president of the Coke company, Summer snatched him.
