I thought about titling this post “Smushed”.
A favorite story regarding my daughter has to do with a college paper she wrote. She earned her usual A but the professor wrote a note to her that a word she used in her paper, smushed, was not a word. She approached him after class to discuss how to conjugate the verb smash.
If smushed wasn’t the past tense, would it then be this: smash, smoosh, smooshed?
I try not to beam and glow about her, but perhaps you can see how she earns an extra A for charm?
Now, speaking of smash:
Balue is going back to live on the farm.
He’s seen one too many back ends of one too many big red pickups.
(Editor’s note: Sherry had nothing to do with this accident.)
(Balue never belonged to her, just to her insurance policy.)
(No daughters were, thanks be to heaven, injured in the above.)
I was allowed to post this photo as long as I kinda distorted it.
Jack (fka Derby) would rather not be easily identified.
