One thing I learned about pregnant women, or pregnant Janice's at least, is that they have superhuman smelling. A bloodhound could have his nose down to the ground, sniffing for all he's worth and not picking up any scents whatsoever. My wife would come along, take one light sniff, and then point the bloodhound in the right direction, "That way, stupid."
Last weekend we hopped in the family Caravan and made a beeline for the most inhospitable patch of wilderness West Virginia has to offer. Well, probably not the most inhospitable. Some of those mountain side shacks we drove past looked pretty miserable. I suppose lying under a grub filled rotting tree in a downpour would … Continue reading Almost Heaven, West Virginia…

So … Continue reading Rain, Flies, Cooking Shows, & A New Mattress
We finish up VBS in PA, get visited by some Mormons, go to an airshow, and eat at an Amish wedding.
Day 1 of Summer Bible School is done. I need to practice my puppetry skills and my helper needs to stop vomiting.
I have a problem with junk. Minivans are capable of moving two adults, a baby, a love seat, and a couch all at once. A motorcycle gets the best of me.
