  1. Matthew and Shakespeare

    Let me copy this over from my personal blog. Matthew is my son and you can go back into my past blogs to learn more about him and our adoption. Anyway he's eight years old now. This happened the other day.

    OK, I was reading a Shakespeare play (Henry VI, Part 1) out of my big complete volume containing all of Shakespeare’s plays and poetry. The binding is literally at least six inches thick, and is about eight by ten in dimension. It’s a big book.

We now have a kitten to add to our rambunctious dog and hyperactive son. I posted a summary on my personal blog, but here are the first two paragraphs:

  5. Memorial for Brandi

    I wrote up a little memorial for Brandi, my Yellow Lab, at my blog Ashes, and since I talked about her often and had posted pictures of her here on Lit Net, I'll provide the link, here. There were too many pictures to try to reproduce the blog here. Here's the first paragraph:

    As many of you now know, our beloved Yellow Labrador Retriever, Brandi, passed away a number of weeks ago. She had cirrhosis of the liver due to canine hepatitis and lymphoma, a double whammy from which it
