The Truth Hurts

Like a sailor on leave, I walked into a local tattoo shop and got inked. Then I had ice cream and beer for dinner. Ice cream because I had a real craving. Beer because I wanted a little alcohol to dull the pain; to help me relax after the time I spent clenched on the table. In answer to your questions: Yes, it hurt. It mostly hurt at the moment the needles hit my skin; once the artist was underway, it dulled. I was flooded with adrenaline, so much that I was shaking when I stood up. I constantl...

Stay calm and look fabulous: Holiday hassle and how to avoid it

Driving, packing, parenting while driving … yes, summer holidays are here to torment us.

Chicory, carrot (Queen Anne's lace), different varieties of wort, and daisies like these are among the wildflowers that proliferate in the heat of the summer vineyards. Not that we've had a hot summer this year, except for the past week. These little flower heads are not more than an inch ...

The plan was to get up very early, start driving immediately, and be past Sea-Tac before the major morning rush.This is not an issue for me, as I am normally up at 5:00 a.m. S...
