Trains and Tutus
Published on Thursday, September 1, 2011 by Light Rail has come to Hampton Roads, to the tune of THREE HUNDRED AND EIGHTEEN MILLION DOLLARS.  The beginning of the line?  Just beyond my neighborhood.  As we watched the construction of this mass transit wonder, our neighborhood collectively thought, “What the….?” What will it do to the neighborhood?  The traffic?  The quiet? For the first week, all...
The Trouble With Crabs
Published on Sunday, July 24, 2011 by The trouble with crabs is you have to kill them.  There is no pretty way about the matter, whether you steam them live or tear off the back for a more instant demise.  The trouble with crabs is you have to kill them. This past Friday morning began like all other summer mornings.  I got up early and prepared myself for work.  After a long busy day, I came home and...
The Catch, The Snatch, The Retrieval
Published on Saturday, July 9, 2011 by Blue crabs.  I won’t kill ‘em, but I’ll sure eat ‘em!  Lately, the boys have been going with the neighbors to collect crabs from a trap at one of their homes. I have not witnessed what comes next.  Some people boil crabs live, some steam them… but this family?  They rip the back off the crab.  My oldest says it is instant and much more humane than boil...

Swimming With The Fishes
Published on Sunday, June 12, 2011 by When we reach the top of the beach stairs we can always judge the quality of the water by the people on the beach.  Arms up means icy temperatures.  Waves filled with riders means warm and wonderful.  No one swimming means jellyfish, 50-degree water or blue crab larvae. This Saturday revealed a few people in the shore break but no one further out.  “It must b...
Dem Bones, Dem Bones
Published on Saturday, May 28, 2011 by How many of you have regurgitated mouse bones on the table?  Raise your hands… anyone?   No?   Am I really the only one? What could be cooler than dissecting owl pellets?  That is exactly what my daughter was able to do this week.  She couldn’t wait to show me all of her treasures. As I unloaded the car, she sat busily setting up her display for me.  Mou...
Hampton Roads Storm, May 24, 2011
Published on Tuesday, May 24, 2011 by The surprise wasn’t that we had a bad storm.  Rather, it was the fact that it came out of nowhere. Just after 4:00 I looked out of my window, noticing it had suddenly gotten dark.  Expecting to see a cloud covering the sun, I was stunned to see something quite different.  The neighborhood across the street seemed to be in turmoil while my area was dark but sti...

Message in a Bottle
Published on Monday, April 11, 2011 by Last Christmas my mother gave me a Message in a Bottle kit, complete with cork and sealing wax.  My daughter and I couldn’t wait to send our message out to sea.  Where would it end up?  England?  Ireland?  How long would it take before someone discovered it? On April 4 we placed my email address and our city on a pre-printed form that was decorated with pict...
Dog Flies Kite in Corolla!
Published on Sunday, April 3, 2011 by The beach, the beach, the BEACH!  This weekend was our first trip back to Corolla.  It was like being home again.  The peace I feel the moment I smell that ocean air is a gift.  One delivered directly from the man above. The spoils we found on the beach this weekend ranged from a bit of precious sea glass to a live (and now saved) blue crab.  We also found r...
10 Ways to Annoy People on Facebook
Published on Saturday, March 26, 2011 by Play every game you can think of.  Send constant requests to your best friend.  Ask for Farm Help, have them feed your fish and send lots and LOTS of roast beef.  And drinks.   Ask the oldest person on your friends list to join the mafia with you.  Repost this several times.  When they tell you to stop, let them know how fun it is.  Start sending ...
The GoGirl Meets the Uro Club?
Published on Saturday, March 19, 2011 by My dear Meleah recently wrote, “As of late, I find myself thoroughly fascinated with strange, bizarre, peculiar, and outright weird products.”  Since then I have discovered the Uro Club, certainly a useful gift for any golfer on your list.  Meleah, with you being a golfer, do you think you would be able to use the Uro Club with a GoGirl? I just can’t get en...
