this week i

spent the last month of my life counting how many people fall into the hole that the supreme court created when they ruled obamacare constitutional.  nyt says eight.  we say 5.2.

lured my father onto a plane, the first ride we've shared in a decade.. vermont..



drove around lake champlain saturday, then through the mountains sunday.  evergreens dilute the colors of autumn, but no refrigerators on the lawn - even the wrecks are well-maintained.

made tough choices.

played chicken toward haunted houses.

ate arts and crafts fair maple walnut ice cream, which everyone knows is the best thing ever.

visited a handful of state parks.

watched marriages..


autumn evenings


energy savings



have plenty more to see.
