Merry Christmas 2020 from Christina Dodd

on December 16, 2020

If you’ve been reading my newsletters and blogs, you know that The Husband and I live on 5 ½ acres in the northwest corner of Washington state, and every year we go out into our woods, cut down a Douglas fir and use it as our Christmas tree.

Christina Dodd Drags the Christmas Tree…Uphill

on December 11, 2020

The Husband and I live on 5½ acres in the woods and every year, we scour our property for precisely the right Christmas tree. Tall, perfectly shaped… Well *tall* anyway.

The WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER dedication is a thank you from our family and me on behalf of my father-in-law, a WWII veteran. On Veteran’s Day 2017, he and other veterans were celebrated in a ceremony at the local high school.

Name the Dog!

on January 14, 2018

Rae ran into the kitchen yelling, “Grandma! We got a dog!” Verona turned away from the accounts spread across the table. “Well, let me see it… My God, what’s that?” She pulled off her reading glasses and stared as the fifty pounds of red muscled beast bounded in, tail wagging, and explored her kitchen.
