Mr. Mouse’s Summer House

Share

Well, by all accounts it looks like Mr. Mouse will be living in St. Louis this summer. It’s kind of a relief to think that that is all decided. I really don’t mind that he gets the opportunity–and if he’s only about 3 hours away, it would be a lot better than across the country. […]

The kind that knows better but does irresponsible or flat-out mean things anyway. This also includes “girls” who still act like they are 13 […]

Our right to be different is, in a deep sense, the most precious right we human beings have. Lillian Smith—-I think that difference is a beautiful thing. Sometimes the people I get along the best with are ones that by the pure virtue of being around them makes me stretch my thinking and comfort zone.So […]
