School days

This past week I have been hobbled (I see a foot specialist on Friday about my throbbing toe) but that didn't stop me from doing a couple of stories for the Silverton Appeal and Stayton Mail.

I also put together my article for the July/August Home & Lifestyles magazine for The Columbian.

So I have been plugging along pretty well, even though I have been slowed up by this dumb foot. Hopefully the doc will be able to do something about it -- or at least give me some good painkillers for when I can't sleep at night.

Fun run and hurt toe

Somehow last week I hurt my left big toe. I don't know if it's when I tripped on a pipe at the Silverton Hospital Fun Run, or when Violet teetered my toer. She was on the teeter-toter and I was pushing it up and down with my foot underneath it. She got crazy and smooshed my foot -- she thought it was hilarious.

So for the last week or so I have been hobbling around on a hurt toe. I had it X-rayed and I have four chunks of bone floating around in there -- so I'm not sure what they are going to do.

Anyway, I will be updating this as stories get posted.

Hope you all had a good May!

Ahoy there!

So the Home & Lifestyle magazine for The Columbian was posted on line when I was on vacation. I did a story on the Nautical Renaissance that takes place in Illwaco, Wa.

Very fun story.
