Yesterday UPS delivered several boxes of things Terry had ordered from Amazon, along with three copies of the print edition of Big Lake Drunk, which I added to my bookshelf. I started out the day by writing most of another chapter in my new Tinder Street book, which involved quite a bit of research on […]

In case any of you have been hiding under a rock and don’t know, in addition to all of the things she does around the house, from installing microwave ovens and splash guards to hanging window blinds, putting together bar stools, and gardening, Miss Terry cooks, too.

Terry has gardening fever, and I blame it on our son Travis.

That’s something Terry has always wanted […]
