Here are my latest crazes:

NCIS – the real one. Mom’s television boyfriend is Leroy Jethro Gibbs and mine is Very Special Agent Tony DiNozzo. We love EVERYBODY on the show, but those are our favorites.

We didn’t start watching the show until a few years after it premiered, and the Harrison County Public Library only has Season 1, so we joined Netflix to get subsequent seasons.

I’ve taken up knitting, you know, using the German or European method, which is much simpler and easier than the American or English method.

Is there EVER enough yarn? I have two projects going and another one in mind. Some fine day, Mom and I are making a run to New Albany to visit Grinny Possum. Their website is just a tease, so we have to go see it for ourselves.

In honor of Miss Mapp, I’ll have to get some Rose Madder worsted. If you haven’t read Mapp, get Miss Mapp by E. F. Benson free at Project Gutenberg.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character takes up a passion which conflicts with another passion.




I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      We’re being very Spartan about Netflix. We have the one-at-a-time DVD option and never browse. So we just shove a season of NCIS into our queue and get one a week. My husband, on the other hand, streams free documentaries and lectures on his computer and spends HOURS getting smartified.
