Saturday is our sixth wedding anniversary. I say it every single year, but I don't know how it's been six years already. And I don't know how it's only been six years.

Discussing lunch in the middle of my alcohol … Continue reading Chats with K
Ho hum... Time for a *somewhat* holiday edition of husband conversations. Me: Why were single-word band names so popular in the 80s? K: I don't know. They just were. Me: Boston, Kansas, Styx, Journey, Rush, Wham- K: No. Do not include Wham with that group of artists. Mid-November I was listening to loud Christmas music … Continue reading Chats with K – Holiday Edition
