This Pandemic has been stressful. First, I couldn’t go see Mama Bee. Then, work sent us all home to work from there. Then, Emil’s work did the same. Then, we thought it would last a month or so and it’s been over half of the year. Luckily, before things got too crazy, we bought the […]
Sometimes, completely shattering your phone’s screen isn’t the oh-shit moment you’d expect.
90 years ago this past Wednesday, Emil’s mom was born. 65 years ago this week, one of Emil’s brothers was born. 14 years ago this past Wednesday, Daddy suffered a massive heart attack. Happy Birthday, Mom. I still miss you like crazy, Daddy.

I guess maybe there is pretend truth to the statement that time heals all wounds. This was the first year since that awful day in 2002 when “God” took Daddy from this world that I didn’t hone in on the date. Of course, I don’t believe that “God” took him. I believe that we aren’t […]
It’s been a while since we just did a plain old update. So here are some things going on with us. Last winter, we got a new domain. You can now find us at BlueLime.us instead of the longer address. Hopefully, we’ll streamline some of the other stuff, too. At some point last winter, I […]

What a great Cristmas Emil and I had. We got to see both sides of the family  and made time for oursleve, too. And, this is the first time in a long time that we didn’t get each other a same gift. Armed with new toys and gadgets (this blog post is coming to […]
