Buffalo Chicken Soup with Corn I almost forgot how to post. That’s how long it’s been. I almost forgot how to type too. Let’s just chalk any spelling errors up to that. Thanks to a gift card and a smokin’ … Continue reading →
Free Blog! (Camera Not Included.) This Monday, July 8th, marked my first year of blogging. The decision to introduce myself as a blogger that day in 2012 didn’t come easy. I shilly-shallied for months. Word Press, having sensed my hesitation, … Continue reading →

Or maybe I’ll just sit this week out and let you guys do all the writing. As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve hit a bit of a wall and I’m waiting for inspiration to strike. But I figure a little mystery every now and then is a good thing. . . .
