Trivia Night 2016

Trivia Night is a sacred event. Benefitting McGuffey Montessori, this yearly gathering packs the big room at the Community Center up in Oxford. Teams of eight fill tables for lightning rounds of trivia questions, homemade desserts, a silent auction and general conviviality. Oh, and every team is encouraged to have a theme, which usually combines […]

Baseman

Some Gary Baseman toys in the entryway of Tom & Wendy’s farmhouse. Always a fine greeting before giving the dogs some rubs as they wake up from their naps on the couch.

Nada

It only took a few months of planning, but finally connected with old friends at Nada. My only wish is that we’d had another hour or two to catch up, but there was sleep to be had.

Farm Day 13.1

Another Farm Day in the books. Perfect weather and the friendliest bunch of folks you can ask for. Oh, and the food. Pot luck like no other. I didn’t take many photos, but a few got fired off… Wendy & Doot. Zan & her pops. Me & mom. This year’s t-shirt commemorated the lawnmower that […]

St. Vincent

I wouldn’t use HILARIOUS as the callout for St. Vincent, but it did bundle up humor and pain quite beautifully. Bonus? Catching up with Wendy over dinner afterward. Our assessment of the movie was inline. It was refreshing to see Melissa McCarthy in a non-over-the-top comedic role. Bill Murray is always a pleasure. Naomi Watts […]

Getting together

Intense competition went down at Rhinegeist as Anne organized a bunch of friends to get together because we don’t get to hang enough anymore. The kids ran around or made Minecraft paper models in the corner, while the adults bent elbows and caught up.

Trivia Night 2014

Another Trivia Night in support of McGuffey is in the books. Our team ‘80’s Mall’ didn’t win, but we had fun dagnabbit. Paul and Amy transcend time, bringing selfies back a few decades. I need to ask Zan what was jammin’ on her Walkman™. Excellent crowd. Capped it off with cake.

One amazing Minecraft cake

Wendy pulls out all the stops when she makes birthday cakes. The amount of fondant square she handmade and colored  for this Minecraft homage was kind of crazy. And this isn’t something she Googled for the cake pattern, she meticulously research and planned it out, did the math, and spent all night pulling it together. Crazy […]
