The Clansmen Unite for an Evening of Scotch

I am delighted to report that our Second Annual Scotch Nosing and Tasting Party was another success, being celebrated on (appropriately) St. Andrew’s Day, November 30th. Each guest was greeted by “Angus McDuff, the Laird of the Manor House” (aka Hubby) and myself, his Lady. I don’t think anyone was truly expecting the wild, ginger-haired, crazy […]

(The Cubbyhole Writer has been juggling a few projects in the air of late, so regular posts have been a difficult task. I hope the calendar will finally allow me more time to re-connect with my readers and followers. Thanks for hangin’ in with me!) Somewhere between being mesmerized by the glorious autumnal displays of […]

Hot as Heck on the Deck

July 24, 2013

I’m basted in an exotic marinade of sunscreen and mosquito spray; I’m nearly crispy in a couple of places; I’m cooked to medium-well without a rotisserie in sight. With temperatures of late in the 30-degree Celsius range, I am already done with the heat wave, so done. It’s too darned hot during the daytime for kids to play, […]

A Lesson in People Watching

July 7, 2013

Like the Dark Shadow, you may not detect me, but I’ll be watching you. It sounds a little creepy, but it’s certainly not new. People-watching has been around as long as Adam and Eve and it’s at the core of human curiosity. Throughout our entire lives we are “checking out the other guy”, probing them, […]
