In the spirit of cleaning up my drafts this was started in the winter of 2019, shortly after realizing Reba was struggling physically. She was our rock for the past few years with her little eyes waking me up every morning before the sun would come up. Every time I log on in the morning I see those eyes looking back at me. In going to the river since Reba has passed it’s not quite the same without being pulled […]
Crosby really misses Elle at 9 pm! Since Elle left after Christmas, Crosby has started to whine for her 9pm cookie every night. Curse that Elle milk bone ritual. It’s not like she hasn’t been getting her daily walks and quality yummies with her meals, however the tumeric is not her fave. There is something magical about 45 degree days in January that allow for laying out on the deck and grilling on the grill for dinner. Let’s just say […]
Reba and Crosby are very grateful dogs. They have a great house or maybe they should make it plural. They were happy with the river, Charleroi, A-wall, little Boston, Canal Winchester, Upper Arlington, Monongahela or Destin. As long as they had beds and belly rubs they were good to go, rolling with the punches in 2018. Something about the magical fibers emitted in the fur.
Looking back on our little celebration from a year ago, these are definitely important and pertinent to our journey in life: A good marriage must be created. In marriage the “little” things are the big things. It is never being too old to hold hands. It is remembering to say, ”I love you” at least once a day. It is never going to sleep angry. It is standing together and facing the world. It is speaking words of appreciation, and demonstrating […]
To date we have raised $802 to fight NF. Way to go team. We did it! We raised funds for the kids with NF! We ate our hot peppers so we can post our ALSHotPepperChallenge and we ran across the Clemente Bridge and did the cupid shuffle, all I wanna do is just a zoom zoom zoom and a boom boom.

I’ve been signed up for Cupid’s Undie Run since Thanksgiving! Based on the success of Riley’sRiverRats at the ALS walk in Pittsburgh, I thought it was time to branch out and make a Pittsburgh winter a little more fun! This February, over 14,000 people are going to be running through the streets and partying in their undies to support those affected by neurofibromatosis (NF) and raise money for research to #endNF. I’m going to be one of those people . . . are you in? […]
The start of 2017 had sand and sun. Hello from Destin, then off to the Magic City. Crosby claimed the front window in Charleroi. We went to Mars for one crazy birthday party. Then had one last farewell to our favorite postman. Ran the Yough River Trail in snow, then ran around PNC Park in our undies. Thanks for giving to help fight NF. Tumors for kids are not cool. Then we said goodbye to Milwaukee before celebrating RJs bday.
