Oooooohhh I just have to tell you, this is going to be a short one this time. That's what my cute little tubby hubby, Wayne, says once in a while. He is so funny at times but other times he can be so obnoxious and revolting, the little dear. Anyway we have been on the go, let me tell you. We've been here and there and just everywhere sampling the good food that all the vendors turn out at the many festivals in the area.

We don't stray too far from home for them; we don't have to; they are...

The surprise ending is one of the most effective, but challenging, devices in story telling. It takes careful planning and talent. Often a movie will pull out a shocker without setting it up from the beginning, thinking that it will satisfy the audience. The truth is that if the ending doesn't make sense or isn't backed up by the rest of the plot, it just makes the audience mad.

Reflections on Beginning a New School Year

 

Wow! School is off and running again! This year our daughter returned as a sophomore to Wayne, and our son is returning as a sophomore to Indiana U. in Bloomington. They're both growing up so fast. (And, I seem to be getting a wee bit older, too).
