I almost forgot to write about one last thing that we needed to do before leaving the West Coast. Remember our cat Autumn who’d had her first litter of kittens behind my chair on the night of Justin’s concussion? Before we could get her spayed, she had another litter of kittens. As soon as they […]

I personally love ‘outlaw country.’ I was listening to Merle Haggard when I was five and my dad and his friends would babysit me at their favorite bar. Fun times.

Music has had an amazing ability to adapt to the most stringent adversity, and the pandemic has been case in point, seeing bands once reliant on their live sets eaking out an existence with livestreams and social media. But on October 1st, Facebook is putting down an iron fist. WeRaveYou has the story. Facebook adds […]

         One of the many visitors we had while living in Hebo was our old friend Clinton. Clinton is the juggler who had lived in our backyard in Portland and who became a good friend. After his year off traveling by thumb around the country, he went back to Yale to finish […]
