One of the things I do on the Kizer and Bender posts is write long hashtags when I've had enough coffee. I believe a hashtag needs to be used so many times before it comes up in searches so I don't know if it'll show up but search for #teriwriteslonghashtags. Even the hashtags from my… Continue reading Wherein I have a good laugh

Bacon grease splattered a good three feet away from the pan, bacon, in that delightfully crisp state, crumbled. Bacon.… Continue reading Wherein the Bacon Falls on the Floor

You might remember, or not, that I spent most of my growing up years in Maine where we have a local caffeinated, carbonated beverage. You might be surprised to learn that I have never had this particular non-adult beverage that I in anyway recall. Then there's the totally awesome definition of Moxie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWoHiCvC26Y From chatting… Continue reading Some News!
Dear Friends, While I am a looker backer, reviewer, and an over thinker when it comes to Christmas card writing (which we did this year!) I (we) tend toward including personal notes rather than a long missive sharing the highlights of our year. I think I tried this a couple of years however this takes… Continue reading Twenty-twenty, A Christmastide Letter
