Into the Wild Wintah

[Read in your best Australian accent.] [[Because everyone needs a little Steve Irwin to spice things up when you're up to here in snow.]] Michigahn Wintah. It's something you cahnnot begin to imahgine until you've experienced it for yourself. I've lived in a southern climate all my life, mate, so this hee-yah is new tear-it-tery! There…

Blunders and Brains

My brain has run off and left me. Or maybe it simply got lost in the airport on my trek back. Whatever has happened, it is the only explanation I have for my recent behavior, because twice now in two days I did something inexplicable and utterly ridiculous!

Speech Therapy
