I’ve been thinking about my space here.  I tend to get bored easily, and since I can’t paint my own house, and I’m tired of moving furniture, I think it’s time to do a little sprucing up around here.  Forgive the mess if you catch me in between themes or formats or photos on my […]

“I had a little accident.”
