I’ve discovered a secret about friendly old people: They were friendly young people:) My neighbour is a grandpa (I’m not calling him old really, mostly because when I was a kid 40 seemed ancient:) and I remember when we were looking to buy our current home that he came over for a chat in the front yard.

It was mostly the male population we were watching. “Well Katie, when you get a bunch of guys together they … Continue reading The Mud Boys
I can’t help but think “I’ll bet they’re their own worst enemy?” when I meet some people. I was a teenager when I first heard a man describe his electrician to me in these terms. He himself had back problems and so did the other man who was trenching a line into his yard. In the bottom of the trench the electrician’s back seized up … Continue reading Man’s Worst Enemy
