Take Me Out

Traveling Sock celebrated Father’s Day by going to the ballpark. It was a beautiful day for a game. Especially when the home team won 6-0. Sorry, Camden. The Long Island Ducks are my favorite baseball team, because they are a semi-pro team that play in a reasonably-sized stadium where you can see what’s happening on […]

The Traveling Sock and I went out to Lancaster with my friend Melissa and her husband today, because Melissa was showing two of her pictures in a show. The Sock loves to hang with celebrities. So I made Melissa take a picture with it: (That’s one of her photographs behind her, in the black & […]

The Traveling Sock is not going out today. This is because there is a nor’easter raging outside. When I took that picture a few hours ago it was just flurries, but now the wind is howling and the trees are creaking to and fro. The radio is using words like “blizzard warning” and “possible whiteout […]

Vermont is lovely in October. You should all get yourself a sister in Vermont so you can visit her and see things like this: This is the view from Grand Isle when you’re waiting for the ferry over Lake Champlain.

In the meantime, I have finished a pair of socks that […]
