Posted on: Wednesday, October 15th, 2014 | No Comments
(I posted this update yesterday on Facebook, but thought it was funny enough to repost on the blog. Enjoy!) I just got the iPhone 6 and it’s the first time I’ve had a Siri.

As I stood by that pool, I watched him play in the pool, then play with the waterfall, then come back to the pool, then run over (and… Continue reading →

The Labor Day Accident

Posted on: Thursday, September 4th, 2014 | No Comments
The last thing I heard before “the accident” was GWE asking me if I wanted a glass of wine with dinner. I never got to answer her.
