Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.

Grandma Got a Cell Phone

My seventy-six year old mother has finally admitted defeat, if you will, and purchased a cell phone. Why, you ask? She got stuck at the county fair without a ride and couldn’t reach any family members because they were all out and about with their cell phones. It is a necessary evil of living in the 21st century, I guess. I am just thankful that my mother is still willing to embrace new technology. Go, grandma!
