Rainbow Sun

I meant to post this the other day, when I accompanied FGB into DC to help him with some work. I was looking out the window for a street sign and the sky took my breath away. There was a full, perfect rainbow all around the sun. I thought this a fitting magical image with which to wish my…

No Joke!

I couldn’t post this yesterday for fear of being thought an April Fool’s joke, but my father has graciously offered to match all monies donated into Princess Alethea’s Summer Book Tour Gas Fund! Here’s the page for Take Two (though it looks like Take One is suddenly working again): http://princessaletheassbtgasfund.chipin.com/princess-aletheas-gas-fund-take-two Whichever page you end up donating to, we will…

Heart-Shaped Box

Happy Valentine’s Day! As you know, Valentine’s Day is a holiday celebrated in my family between father and daughter. Every year, my father sends us all something cheesy and wonderful. This year, my gift was a gorgeous Italian hand-carved alabaster paperweight (pictured here). I love it! Though this is very much my father’s tradition, I suspect my mother had…

Give me your best shot — post your best caption (or captions) for this in the comments on my website (let’s say…by Valentine’s Day), and I’ll send…

(Not counting the personal thank you note Soteria has framed by her door; the family photos are relegated to refrigerator magnets.) This would concern me, if a.) we weren’t half Greek and…

Red Candy Sale

If you haven’t gotten your fill of Valentine’s Day candy on sale yet, well, that’s nobody’s fault but your own. Lucky for you, Easter’s just around the corner, with a significantly smaller proportion of Red Dye Number Five. I had a lovely Valentine’s Day, thank you, in no small part because of my father. I don’t remember when the…

Happy Birthday, Daddy-O

It’s a big day today. It’s my dad’s birthday. There are a lot of folks who share my father’s birthday, namely this guy, and later my grand-nephew Caleb. We Capricorns are a special bunch anyway, but if your birthday is today you can count yourself among the extra-special special. Join me in wishing my dad a very very happy…
