Big Mouth Success

The beginning of the York Fair reminds me of my first introduction to the event in 1992. They had bungee jumping that year at the fair. One day, I went to lunch with a group of fellow Evening Sun reporters. This was our routine. I want to say we were at the Little Red Schoolhouse […]

Miss Me?

So I haven’t blogged for a while. Three weeks, pretty much. I have no real excuse. I have thought about writing things, but have been busy at work, focused on another writing project and not really motivated at home.
