It’s time for another monthly update on my Reading Log! I used to post every month…but then things got a bit wonky when we moved to SF, and my ensuing health issues… but now I’m back in the habit, what with all my time to read nowadays.

While I’m taking a trip down Memory Lane and reminiscing about last year’s Halloween festivities, how about another Halloween treat from last year? The costumed kitties! Although we haven’t seen them since May, they are still alive and well. Thriving, actually, with Sam’s grandparents in MS.

The guide, Jim Fassbinder, is… Continue reading We’re Going on a Ghost Hunt….

But expensive.) and admired… Continue reading Field Trip: Golden Gate Valley Library
