A Whole Lotta Shaking Goin’ On!

No, I haven’t been in an earthquake, but thanks to my physical therapy exercises, I watching these fantastic lectures about the geology of the Pacific Northwest.

Tuesday Tales – #TT1 – Wood

Welcome to Tuesday Tales!!   Buck’s nerves were more rattled than he expected as he drove to the hospital. His mind jumped between this drive and the one so many years ago. Would the outcomes be the same? Would he arrive to find his wife dying and his son motherless? He slowed the truck to […]
