Meet The Instigator & The Enforcer, aka Kodi & Clara
IT ALL STARTED WITH A TRADE - SOMEWHERE IN THE SOUTHWEST CORNER OF FROZEN, FREAKIN' NORTH DAKOTA. (Please forgive me, North Dakota, and don't take it personally. It's just that for me, your beautiful land will always be a reminder of My Shattered Heart.)
The School Field Trip
Little One woke in a flash, their eyes snapping open with instant recall. Today was the day of the school field trip! They'd been waiting for so long to see these dangerous animals up close. There was no better way than through the safety glass at the aquarium.
The Best Customer I Ever Had
I was working the lunch shift in a small-town restaurant. It was owned and operated by a wonderful Greek family. We served subs, pizzas, and a few other basic Italian and Greek dishes. It was small town, big-time. The tables were always filled with loyal regular customers and the phone was always ringing with take-out orders.
Kodi & Clara
I enjoy the modern luxury of east coast living and west coast working. Being as how I’m usually up in time to wake the Robins this means I have plenty of time before work to call my own. I use it for chores, errands, projects, general puttering about, and sometimes doing nothing at all. These days I spend a lot of it visiting with Mom and Dad over coffee, watching the news on mute with the captioning on because my hubby starts in his corner office half a shift earlier than me.
Your Opinion Matters
Perhaps you’ve read “Moe’s Story” and met my baby sister Moe. If not, let me introduce you now. I grew up with a tight group of siblings. “Three of each” our parents proudly declared. For just as long as “Lean On Me” has been our ‘family song’ we’ve been there for each other. My siblings were my best friends from the day we were born, especially my sisters.
