The Annual Ides of March Quest for Fried Clams

My dad's last meal was fried clams. Flashback to 1998. Dad was dying of lung cancer. The living room was dominated by the hospital bed sent by hospice once it was clear he could no longer manage the climb to the second floor bedroom. He had been in and out of consciousness for several days … Continue reading The Annual Ides of March Quest for Fried Clams

And it was up there...behind the trees. So we jumped in the … Continue reading Blue Moon

The story here, though, is the spectacular manner in which this is done. About 3/4 through it I considered stopping. It was a little … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: A Beautiful, Terrible Thing by Jen Waite
