last week we had a rare snowfall with some accumulation here in nashville. the evening it actually snowed dave & i were out doing some christmas shopping and, because we’re not that smart, didn’t hurry home as soon as it started snowing. we paid for that lack of intelligence dearly – it took us 2 hours to travel 5 miles home (that inch of snow we got was treacherous to nashville drivers). the next morning dave took the opportunity to get some great shots of the...

amanda o’brien of the fantastically funny blabbermouse has tagged me in the seven random and weird things about me blog chain. don’t know whether to thank you or curse you, amanda, but here goes... i think soup is evil in high school i worked at friendly’s creating magnificent ice cream treats for all, none of which included toasted almond fudge - that stuff was a block of ice and no one wanted it. one night a man came in and ordered a hand-packed quart...

at the risk of being completely cheesolicious i give you my thanksgiving post...rather than a huge list of all the things i’m thankful for i’m going short and sweet. i’m thankful that i love my life and i get to spend every day working, living and laughing with my favorite person in the world and our dogs. i’m thankful that we’re all healthy. i’m thankful for our friends and family. i’m thankful that carly is finally housebroken.
i hope everyone has a...

for the last two years we've been in a battle with wilson's immune mediated disease and the last year has been spent in a desperate effort to retain as much of wil's eyesight as we possibly could once his disease manifested in optic neuritis. we apparently lost the battle this week as wilson's world has gone black - we've got him on a huge dose of prednisone as a last ditch effort to get back the little sight he had but at this moment it's not looking good. wilson has the spirit of a dog...
