This is the poster, announcing the high school play Grease, that James tacked up at our grocery store in town. James is playing “Teen Angel!” He sings Beauty School Dropout. He has another small roll as one of the high school boys. Here is clip of Frankie Avalon singing Beauty School Dropout. Do you remember […]
I can’t believe that I didn’t share this sooner! (I did share on Facebook.) Grant’s mom, Gerene, made T-shirt quilts for the boys this past Christmas. She did a wonderful job! The boys really loved them. It’s a great way to recycle their old t-shirts, while preserving the memories associated with them. And of course […]

Here in Massachusetts we’ve just had two feet of snow dumped on us within a couple of days. The kids got 2 snow days out of the deal, so they are happy. That brings the total to 5 snow days! I am so done with winter! I figure a good laugh is better than the […]
Our family attended the annual Robert Burns night over the weekend. It’s a dinner event that celebrates the life and poetry of Scottland’s Robert Burns. It occurs on or close to January 25th, his birthday. It’s also a celebration of Scottish heritage. Grant’s father was born in Scotland. He passed away several years ago now. […]
