Less Than Zero

If anybody still doubts I’m living in a COVID bubble out here, Saturday morning I worked a shift in our company booth at the Kids’ Carnival in downtown Rapid City, along with Chris and Meghan. Just the fact that we even had a Kids’… Continue Reading “Less Than Zero”

Think Pink

Sunday, a miracle happened. I actually convinced Tara that our yard would be better off with a few flamingos. Not real ones, mind you (though, if they could survive the harsh South Dakota winters, I’d totally be down). As you might recall, I recently… Continue Reading “Think Pink”

Seven Mojo-Sparkers

Wednesday was a weird day. For starters, I thought it was Tuesday up until about 4:00, and almost missed a scheduled interview with a client. But then she never responded to me, so maybe we were both confused over which day it was, ha.… Continue Reading “Seven Mojo-Sparkers”

This Old Sardine Can

I hope you’re enjoying your three-day weekend! Unless you’re reading this in a country that doesn’t celebrate Memorial Day. In which case…happy just-Monday. It’s been a busy few days. Knowing we were tackling a major project, I wanted to ease into the weekend, so… Continue Reading “This Old Sardine Can”

The Final Frontier

Which Bear is Most Condescending? A Pan-Duh!

For years, I have had a daily desk calendar, the kind where you tear off a page every day to reveal something new. The calendars are always different…and entertaining. One year I had a Bushisms calendar that consisted of the 43rd president’s unconventional statements,… Continue Reading “Which Bear is Most Condescending? A Pan-Duh!”

Walking CliffsNotes

I think I might be working too hard or something, because my professional life is beginning to seep into my personal life. It’s like a crossover episode where characters from two different television shows mingle, like they did on Happy Days and Mork &… Continue Reading “Walking CliffsNotes”

London Calling

I’ve learned some really cool things about the Black Hills during the course of my job. Like the fact that there is a secret chamber behind Abraham Lincoln’s head on Mount Rushmore that functions as a time capsule of sorts for future generations. It… Continue Reading “London Calling”

Shivering Like Egyptians

I opened the front door this morning to grab the newspaper, and saw six deer trotting across the middle of our snow-dusted street in a formation so perfect, I half-expected to find them pulling a sleigh driven by a fat man in a red… Continue Reading “Shivering Like Egyptians”
