Internet IRL

I literally had an old man yell at me [1] today to “Get off my lawn! [2]” And here I was thinking that was just a phrase on the intertubes.         [1] Well, at my dog. Then other things at me. [2] With more adjectives.

Of the year 2014

For me, 2014 was the year of the Mountain Goats. It’s what I’ve been listening to, and was the best concert of the year for me. I did one Mexico trip (also one the fall before) and two Maple trips, spring and fall. Also the Cathedral near St. George. Locally, I spent most of the […]

What puppies are good for.  


Late of an evening, one of the last runs of the summer for the dogs, though not for me. I like summer evenings. Cool, but I’m warm from the day, and old injuries stay old. Fading light, heading down into the arroyo, no one else to be seen for the entire distance. A coyote stands […]
