    I visited your blog. I really do enjoy it and I will try to make more of an effort to visit more regularly. It's not a chore, truly-I just had a minor operation and I'm still a little tired.

    Hi Virgil,
    Nice to see you around and thanks for stopping by the blog. Things are actually going well, although I realize in my blog they don't sound great. Your blog descriptions of your trips to Pennsylvania show how much fun families can have when time is taken to plan meaningful trips. The picture of you going down the rainbow slide with Matthew is precious. I particularly enjoy your informative blogs about history or general background information. It is good to learn about the wolf sanctuary- just in case I am over that way with my family. The wolves are beautiful. I cannot believe the place is run by volunteers. So glad to watch Matthew become a young little man. Time does pass!

    How's your summer going? So your son is starting first grade this year? It really does seem like just yesterday that I was reading your blogs about his adoption.

    Hi there! I hope you and the family are well, and it’s not as infernally hot in your area as it’s here.
    I’m about to go on a trip to the Lake District (UK) where it appears to be around 20 degrees (Celsius) colder than at home. I’m sure it’s going to be fun. - No, really, it’s going to be fun. I’m going hiking on a group trip; don’t know the group but I assume they’re going to be harmless. And probably nice.

    Hi Virgil! It's so good to hear from you. Busy, as usual. I need to pop by your other blog and see what's been going on there. How are you and your family?

    Hi Virgil--Long time no see. Tried to PM you but your inbox is full. (So popular...or lazy about clearing messages ) Moving to Philadelphia next month for an exciting new job. We'll have to see about meeting in NYC when I get settled.

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.
