When You Coming Back, Chip?

Yes, Chip has run away. We had been warned about our newly adopted box turtle's tendency to roam by our cousins in Alaska, but since days had gone by and he hadn't made a break for it, we thought he liked the little habitat that Art created for him based on Garrett's drawings and specifications. Now we see that that was all a ruse. He was just waiting for us to let our guard down...thinking he was happy with his little pool and butter lettuce. What fools!, he must've been thinking, hunkered down in the leaves plotting his escape.

Another Trophy for the Riches

Claudia now also has a trophy--a soccer trophy. Claudia ended her season last week and did not go on to post-season play (thank goodness). Now we are just enjoying the pool.

Stop Those *&^%%# Hyphens!

For those of you who don't know, an adverb does not need to be hyphenated. Even if it is used in a compound adjective. Refrain. The next one I see may push me over the edge
