My short story, "Al's Vacation," is now published on We Are A Website . It's a series of emails between a husband and wife who were over each other a long time ago. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

About a week ago, I downgraded from a smart phone to a dumb (flip) phone, a phone that gets great reception in the mountains, and is archaic for texting. I guess I'm now officially a dinosaur who doesn't like technology.

I gave up on my smart phone because it was dying...

The ancient Greeks thought of the constellation Canis Major as a dog, with the star Sirius as its nose, who chased the hare Lepus. Dog days occurred when Sirius appeared to rise just before the sun, in late July. These days were the hottest time of the year, and could...

Up until early this morning, I seriously considered staying home with the dogs while my husband and our guests drove to Casper to watch the eclipse. After all, I could see a little over 97% of the eclipse just sitting in our backyard, and maybe even take in the eclipse...

I love this time of the year -- Shark Week! The SciFi channel trots out all of the worst movies ever made, complete with annoying characters, awful dialog, and of course, ginormous sharks of all shapes, sizes, and special powers. This year, I was treated to a number of...

Like this morning. I woke up to a spring blizzard and...

Our dog, Audrey, is in the penalty box. Again.

We've crated the dogs anytime we go out, ever since two Decembers ago, when Audrey helped herself to the Christmas cookies baked by our neighbor and demolished a bag of popcorn kernels. It took two months to find all the ke...

Just when I thought everything was in place at home, enter the Buffalo sock monster.

Our Los Angeles sock monster lived in the dryer and randomly ate one sock from a pair, rarely spitting out any old socks. I outsmarted it by buying bags of the same socks, so that I cou...

I decided to explore a part of the Clear Creek trail system I hadn't hiked before. Clear Creek meanders through town, and the trail more or less follows it, randomly stopping and starting again. Like many places in Wyoming (and a few places in town, including the inter...
