Last month I got a phone call on a Sunday from Lily telling me that her hamster Chip died. When she called she was so sad and said “Chip is no longer with us. I am going to give her a proper burial”. When I saw her a few days later I asked her if […]

The truck has had a crack in the windshield for a couple of years. Just recently it has really started growing. Yesterday I spent some time researching windshield prices. The first thing I looked up was our comprehensive insurance coverage. Yes, they cover it. Yes, it’s a $99 deductible. Do we want to risk a […]

So far this year we haven’t put the bird feeders out. Mostly because of the squirrels and partly because last year the grass below the feeder died. I assume the grass died because of all the bird poop and bird traffic but I am not 100% sure. For a few months now I have tried […]

We woke up this morning in Hershey, PA. Can you guess why we detoured to Hershey if we are headed to West Virginia? If you said it was to go see Hershey Chocolate World then you are correct. This place has been on my to see list for a long time. The whole town of […]
