Fairy Rings


With all the rain we’ve been getting here in Southern California, mushrooms are popping up in lawns everywhere. I’ve really enjoyed watching the circle of mushrooms emerge on our front lawn. They appeared on a day when all my electronics were going wonky, and as I told the kids this was because there was too much magic in the air, they nodded very seriously.

I’m lucky they still play along with me. :)

Killing Floor


I just finished reading the first Jack Reacher novel, by Lee Child. Wow, the amount of blood-letting stretched the imagination. Other than that it was a pretty good story. I can see why some people thought Tom Cruise was not a good pick for the role of Jack in the movie version. I think Brad Pitt or Chris Evans (Captain America) would be better fits.
