Sweet Home Minnesotaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! C'mon, sing it with me now!

I will be heading home for a week of family visiting and friendly socializing next month (May 10-18). Let me know if you're in the cities that week for friendly or hostile socializing, if need be.

Glad I put my doors back on, I guess.


Pollen, Schmollen. Spring is here and that means one thing...

...time to take the doors off of your vehicle and drive around...

HIGHLY recommended.

Well, pollen season is in full bloom here in the Triangle, and everything is coated a dusty yellow. Thankfully it rained today and washed things off a little bit. The rainwater always collects in our deck chairs, but not usually with the odd yellow glow. We let one of the cats out on the front porch and after about five minutes she looked like she had been attacked with a highlighter.
