    One Week with Eyeglasses

     • December 16, 2014 • 0 Comments

    The last McGee has fallen. That was me a week ago today, my first full day wearing eyeglasses. (I actually picked them up last Monday the 8th.) My mom, dad, both sisters, wife and both kids all wear glasses … so I was the last McGee to need them. Like many heavy computer and...

    Adventures in Text Message Trolling

     • December 8, 2014 • 0 Comments

    The experiment began at about 6:55 pm last night. That’s when I finished planting eight Horsetail Reed plants in a container on our front patio. It was a project that began a couple weeks ago when the fiberglass container arrived, and I started purchasing (and digging) rocks, soil and the plants. I worked on...

    It’s Hard to Take a Selfie with a Dog

     • May 19, 2014 • 0 Comments


    I had no idea it would be so tough to take a selfie with Sparky. He’s usually pretty relaxed when I’m taking his picture, or any picture, but not the case this weekend. It took me five tries to get a good one. First, he started reaching up to lick my face. When he...
