For the Love of Dragon

On this day, a little Dragon hatched out and came into our lives. From the first, she was an amazing and beautiful creature. Over the years, she has grown into a fierce wyrmling that I am proud to know; even prouder to call my daughter. Thank you, Dragon, for being all that you are.

Piggie Update 010417

Gram had an acute psychotic episode. I wasn’t there for it. My understanding was that she was seeing people outside in the cold and she was trying to bring them blankets. She was under dressed for going outdoor. When my cousin tried to stop her, she became aggressive and called the police. When they arrived, they put her into protective custody and she went to the hospital for a crisis eval. She was there for a few days. Read the rest of this entry


My Nephew, Scholar Owl, is being home schooled my his mom ToadieOdie. She has asked me to do some of the course work which I think will be super fun. Scholar Owl seemed excited about it too. Since I need a place to organize stuff and to share things with ToadieOdie and Scholar Owl, I am going to be posting things related to that course work here. If any of it strikes your interest, feel free to make comments and join the discussion.

The Killing Joke

I read the comic book for the first time today because Dragon said that I had to read that before I when and watched the movie. I read it and can’t say that I really get why Dragon and Monkey are so excited about it. Not that it was a bad comic, but it wasn’t the coolest one I’ve ever read. We then went down to Portland and watched the movie in theater. I liked the movie more then the comic. It just seemed to come together more on the screen then on the page. I had a good time. It was nice to spend time with the family. Listened to an audio book and chatted on the drive to and from. It was a good day.


It was a really great day. I got to spend 8 hours with Dragon. Doesn’t get better then that. We played Mine Craft for several hours. Then Skunk came over and the 3 of us did paper art together. We worked on making cards for Halloween. Yes, we start early. Monkey cooked us a great dinner. It was these tasty burgers. After Dragon and Skunk went to bed, Monkey and I watch an anime called Silver Spoon. Watched the whole season. I really enjoyed it.


Finally went and visited Gram and Dad. Been almost 2 months since I’ve been over there. Spent about 2 hours with each. Monkey, Dragon and Skunk came as well.

Gram seems to be doing well. She likes the woman that is coming into help her which is good. She gets a lot of points for spoiling Gram’s dog. That dog means everything to Gram. So it is very important how you treat the dog. She also gets points because she isn’t over bearing. She comes in and asks Gram what she Read the rest of this entry


We went to the Cosmos Sphere. Sue decided not to come because she did not feel that she could tolerate the long day on her feet and all the walking. She had both knees replaced. And she still has a hard time with her knees.

There was so much stuff there! I feel like I could have spent more time there, but we couldn’t. There are Read the rest of this entry


Today we went to the Prairie Fire Museum. Sue was able to go with us since  she got this whole week off. That’s amazing, really. 2 nurses getting a week off together is rare. It can be hard for a nurse to get vacation. But it is cool that Monkey will be able to spend a lot of time with his mom. And well that’s why we’re here. Read the rest of this entry


This has been a really great day. First to note: Rufus, a friend of Monkey’s family, gave Dragon a harp. It is a beautiful piece. She has spent a good part of the day playing it. She wiped off all the dust and tuned it first. After only one day, she was playing it beautifully this evening. She never stops amazing me. There are times it is hard to believe that such a wonderful person is my child. Truly, she is one of the 2 Read the rest of this entry
