Ah, the hole got me

October 4th, 2015 · No Comments

Well, I didn’t fall through the hole in the kitchen floor; it really was way too little. I didn’t trip in it because it was pretty close to the wall and I put a tile over it. But I will tell you: Freeing up that hole from the relatively heavy exhaust mechanism of the Jenn-Aire […]

History can change its definition

He was a herpetologist in the days when that group did not think one group of snakes was seriously poisonous.

A worn out kitchen counter and good use for it

May 23rd, 2015 · No Comments

Maybe my best prayer

May 8th, 2015 · 1 Comment
