Pecking At Pebbles

Saturday, February 5th, 2011

Have you ever tried to make something be what it can never be? Annie and Emma are in the back seat at Sonic Drive-In, enjoying an after school snack while we sit with engine running. It’s unseasonably cold this week. So cold that there is no one dining at the outdoor tables, the same tables […]

Adding To The Tank

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

My great uncle, L.D. Thompson, farmed with my Dad and my Grandfather in Iowa. L.D. was a kind and generous man, always helping his friends and neighbors.

The Value Of A Question

Sunday, September 21st, 2008

“Daddy, I have a question.” I hear this often from my daughters. 2nd grader’s this year, they love learning. I wonder what her question is this time? What’s 16 + 16? How to spell “clock”? Or maybe something┬áregarding a favorite place, like “When are we going to Krispy Kreme again?” “Sure, Emma, what’s your question?” […]
