Month: February 2016

Super Cool Place Alert | 98.1 FM Real Music Variety Madison, WI One weekend not long ago my husband, Marc, took our four year-old, Everett, to the UW Geology Museum. Yes . . . the Geology Museum! Yes…here in Madison! Who knew? It’s by Camp Randall and it’s free!  The morning started out with Everett wanting to see a […]

​It has been awhile since we had a view of Joe! I took this one day when he first woke up. He has been very sluggish this winter, (haven’t we all?) but there were years when he would sleep through the whole winter. I suppose in ‘turtle years’ he is a teenager.  I had a dream about him some time back that […]
