Here's the quick version: friend Curtiss Cox was last seen Monday, August 4 at 6:00am in Mansfield, Texas. He was driving a blue PT Cruiser, license plate beginning LS*-***. We need help fining him, because this is way, way out of character. Update 3: Curtiss has been found safe! This is the point where the story quickly becomes… Continue reading UPDATE 3: FOUND… What it’s like when someone goes missing (thank you for helping)
We're not super duper into holidays, generally speaking. They're fun, but we're busy, and a good many of them (I'm looking at you, Mother's/Father's Day and Valentine's Day) are largely an excuse to sell people bunches of extra STUFF. You know the drill. But I love fireworks on the fourth of July, jack-o-lanterns and costumes… Continue reading Fireworks

Until the cable company shows up and bestows internet upon us, I am without email, MidnightDBA.com, and my MidnightDBA blog. Woe is me! Please leave… Continue reading CUT OFF FROM TEH WORLD: No Email Today
The move is done! Mostly. Something like 85%. The movers showed up at 8:30am yesterday, and I finally kicked them out at midnight, two trips and two half-put-together beds later. Eric and Kiddo are thrilled about the new place. The dogs love it. Ben loves it, but at bedtime he wants to "go home!" He… Continue reading Under Pressure….
I'm moving RIGHT NOW. Note: Eric couldn' find a school shoe, so he stays home. Benny's at school. Julie gets them both at noon. Kiddo was pissed off because Eric got to stay home. We're moving Starving Students Movers, and they seem great. I'm worn out. Took a coffee run and got a venti iced… Continue reading Moving…
