    Great to hear you're all healthy. There seems to be less traffic here. I've been kinda lurking.

    Spotted your user name on "Today's Birthdays." You're still a youngster, compared to yr ole Auntie. Fifty-seven, huh? You must be a man of great variety, like Heinz! Enjoy your day-- and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year as well!

    Good hearing from you. My participation... and a lot of the old gang... has declined greatly on LitNet. I miss our old discussions on Wallace Stevens, Moby Dick, the Rolling Stones, etc... Things are going... I'm getting more done with my own art work than I did in the past... but unfortunately reading less. Hope things are going well with you and yours.

    Hi, Virgil! I hope all is well with you and your family! Everything is wonderful with me, but so much has changed over the years. Visiting Lit Net is making me feel nostalgic.

    I am doing fine, Manny! It was such a pleasure to read what you had to say in the Caananite Woman thread. WOW! You really know your stuff! And your words were truly helpful to me, thanks so much!
    Good to see that both you and Rich (mtpspr) come now and again.

    Hi Virgil,

    I also am unable to spend as much time as I'd like here. Thanks for reading it and the critique.

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.
