How does one make sense of the world when things like this happen? Once again, the lives of small, innocent children are suddenly gone and families are destroyed, just days before a major holiday. My heart breaks for them as I try to imagine just how much anguish they must feel. Only a few days before, happy plans for family gatherings and feasts were in the works. And then a reckless school bus driver speeds and violently crashes, cleaving the bus in two against a tree and taking the lives of at least five beautiful children (update: six). The madness of it all.
This Thanksgiving, there will be an extra heaping of gratitude on my plate for my family and the friends whom I cherish. There will be no talk of politics or things that divide. Just love, compassion, and understanding.
I hope you and your family enjoy a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving together.

Have you ever eaten a grub? I haven't, though I suspect I may have eaten silkworm pupae as a toddler. I don't think she should eat her dining companion, no matter how plump and juicy he seems. If she pokes him with her chopsticks, I fear he may just devour her like one of those giant sandworms. Sluuuuurp gnash gnash mmmmmm
This week, my dog got sprayed in the face by a skunk. I'm having a heck of a time getting the smell off his head and out of my car.
Have a pleasant smelling weekend!
Gotta love the octopus!

|Myron desperately wanted to tell her where she could "go fish," but he controlled himself.|
A few weeks back, I visited a nearby nature preserve and took part in a small beautification effort. There was a great egret in a clearing we had just made. He stood absolutely still with just his head bobbing ever so slightly. Our guide informed us that he was probably hunting for frogs. I hope this egret doesn't make a meal of one of these guys. Watch out, Stumpy Stan. He's got his eye on you.
