Sunday Bag o’ Birds

Five years ago I photoblogged the birth of two hummingbirds. The mother had built her nest on a storage hook hanging from a support beam underneath our patio overhang.

Monday Bag o’ Mail

My sister Mary and brother-in-law Dennis came to visit for a couple of days, the first of my siblings to visit since we’ve been married. I hope more visits will follow. More sisters too.

All of Donna’s sisters and brothers have visited over the years. Some even lived with us for extended periods of time. [...]

Monday Bag o’ Nuts & Bolts

If you checked in on Twitter any time during the past week, you probably saw multiple references to the Grantland story. Grantland, an online magazine associated with ESPN, ran an article about “Dr. V,” the mysterious woman behind Yar Golf.

The journalist, Caleb Hannan, set out to write about a radical new putter taking the [...]
