    She was supposed to call, but I don't think she ever did. I'm going to try to get in touch with her again, and there's someone else on the forum who stays in touch with her, I think.

    Of course, Virgil. Just sending out the usual reminders. Understand if you are unable to.

    Hope you and yours are well

    Hi Virgil. I am doing fair these days, thanks for asking. All well with you and the family, I trust? Nice to hear from you.

    Don't worry about it. I didn't go on here for like a year. I do greatly admire Lawrence. I read in an old thread that you did your thesis on Lawrence. Very cool.

    You hoo... I particularly liked the Mother's Day story. Your little angel is just like my little angel. They are forever seeing the world as this fantastic place that tickles and loves them.

    Hey Virgil, my sister should be fine--as she is in another part of the state. It did hit a city where some friends of mine live and I'm getting ready to send them an email to find out how they are. I guess I think they'll be OK. I sure hope I'm right. Actually, the town that was hit was also hit about ten years ago, and it was also a massive tornado, about a mile wide. I wonder if it, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer's hometown, is some portal between dimensions. Just wondering.

    Thank you for asking, Virgil. How are you all recovering from Sandy, btw?

    Hey. Your blogs are really well-written. You are gifted at prose. I just read the one on the new pope and enjoyed it immensely.

Janine

For those of us who were regulars here on Lit Net many years ago and remember Janine, I'm saddened to report that on November 27th, 2018, our dear friend passed away. She was 68 years old. Eternal rest grant unto Janine, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace.

Matthew and Shakespeare

by Virgil on 12-18-2017 at 10:01 PM
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.

New Family Member: Tiger

by Virgil on 05-24-2015 at 09:25 PM
Those that know me here know that my wife and I have been dog people all our lives, but last week Matthew and I stumbled upon a little kitten beside our house and of course found him irresistible. 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:

Of course this was completely unplanned. Thursday, May 14th (I date it for posterity’s sake) after dinner at about half past six Matthew

My 2014 Reads

by Virgil on 01-31-2015 at 10:38 PM
Hi all

I haven't been on in a while. I think I last mentioned we had a new pup in the family, and she has been a handful. I don't remember my other pups driving us crazy like this one. So since my wife was with her all day, I had to give up part of my evenings to releave her and stay with the dog. Evenings after work is my usual computer time, and there was no way this pooch was going to let me be.

Then just after Christmas my computer went bonkers and after looking

A New Addition to the Family

by Virgil on 10-07-2014 at 08:57 PM
Well, we've enlarged our family with a new four legged member, a black Labrador Retriever pup. She's special, and just as cute as can be. I can't remember how to upload pictures here on Lit Net, so if you're interested, come by my Ashes blog to see:

And actually you can see the breeder's litter of pups at an earlier post, posted before we were able to select one.
