Screw Maker

I forgot what this thing is called but it's for making screws while repairing machinery, such as if a screw on the machinery has been destroyed for some reason:


A sweet memory about sweet flutters from one year ago.

Yaya Wedding

A big event for the yayas because our dear friend, SM, got married today. I should probably call her SS now...nah, she'll always be SM to me. I've never seen her look more beautiful or more happy. It was touching to watch my friend take those vows and fantastic to cut loose with all the Yas. If you're reading, SM, thank you for being my friend and for letting me be a part of your special day.

Thanksgiving Photos

These few crappy photos are all I have to show for this holiday. I get too distracted when there are lots of people around and the few photo skills I have seem to disappear.

New Blog

Some of you have asked about my writing. I will finally confess that I've moved that part of my blog to a new location. Please email me at if you would like the address. Fair warning: there is a lot of negative stuff over there and I understand if you don't wish to follow.

Yayas and other IRL friends,
I know you'll respect my privacy and not ask for the new location or go looking for it. I need a place that is just mine right now. Thank you for understanding.

Pioneer's Cabin Restaurant

My dad has been talking about going to this restaurant for over 5 years:

Pioneer's Cabin Resturant

Look how happy he is:

Really I think he was laughing at me with my camera.

The food was good home cookin' including all you can eat fried chicken and pork roast, 25 different kinds of pie to choose from, bread baked in a pot and beverages served in mason jars:
Bread in a Pot

Plenty of country kitsch on the walls and the servers were dressed in calico dresses.
Let's hear it for rural restaurants with a theme!
