I Missed Thursday and Friday

I missed two days this week.


Blogging is Hard, Part Deux.


Saw 1917 last night. Pretty amazing movie, but emotionally exhausting. I will probably just watch cartoons today in order to recover.


Kidding. I’m writing today.


Have a good weekend.

Tremendous read. Had no idea about the history of OKC and it is really kind of bizarre. Anderson does a great job of weaving in that history with the saga of the Thunder. Yes, there's basketball, but the book itself really isn't a basketball book. Re ...more

“I'd forced books on my kids from the day they were born and, as it turned out, it had been completely unnecessary because all of them liked to read. Or maybe they liked to read because I'd read aloud nearly every children's book in print.”
Jeff Shelby, The Murder Pit

“do it when it's daylight.” He laughed again. “Daisy. No one else is coming in.” “That's not what I'm worried about.” “Then what are you worried about?” I rolled closer to him. “How did whoever killed Olaf find that opening?” He thought for a moment. “I don't have a good answer for that,” he admitted. “I mean, you couldn't just walk into our yard and see it,” I said. “It wasn't visible. You would've had to know it was there.” He nodded. “Yeah, suppose so.” “The only people who could've known about it were the owners before us,” I said slowly. “Or the owners before them...” I sat up straight. “So it has to be one of them.” Jake looked dubious. “I don't know about that.” “How could it not?” I asked, smacking the pillow. “No one else would've known.” “You're assuming two things,” Jake said. “One, that the previous owners knew about the opening. We've lived here for”
Jeff Shelby, The Murder Pit

“She tucked her chin to her chest and looked at me like I was a Neanderthal. Except I remembered that scientists had recently discovered that Neanderthals were actually probably capable of complex thought and communication so that analogy wouldn't work anymore.”
