Bluff City (Memphis) – On the banks of the Mississippi…

By tecture-admin No comments

Why Memphis?  Well, it’s becoming one of my favorite cities and it’s my 70th birthday. Yes, yes, it’s true, I have spent the last fifteen or more years turning various ages in Las Vegas. And wow, LV is so much fun.  All those lights, that action, the people watching. And our friend Amber is the […]

The weekend started early last week with our trip to CB’s Steamroller Printing event in Memphis.  We arrived in Memphis around 9:30 and walked from the SWA gate to the National Car Rental Terminal which honestly seems like a two miles.  You may remember that on our last trip National Car Rental had absolutely no […]

I like to start Sunday mornings with a nutritious breakfast (or someone does), a nice bowl of blueberries, fresh pineapple and Greek yogurt, so you can imagine my dismay (joy) when I discovered that there were no blueberries, no pineapple and almost no yogurt (apparently bacon and eggs were not an option). Oh well. It was […]

Murder by the Book

I just finished my summer reading list and now must find new material in time for my annual birthday trip coming up. While TWWNCBUIP swims, Linc, Lola and I like to sit poolside with mojitos and murder mysteries. Now that I am approaching 50, I find that my memory is often not as good as […]

For whom the bell …..

My summer reading list is always full of action adventure stories (hurry up Lee Child with my next Jack Reacher) and English mysteries. Sometimes life imitates art. The forty nine year old “Case of the Missing Bell” was partially solved this week when a mysterious package was left at our doorstep. Inside the package was […]

Sunday checklist….. — On the Road Again

By tecture-admin No comments

Breakfast of yogurt before snuggling up with the puppies to watch “Marley and Me” It was probably a good thing that the puppies dozed off before the end…spoiler alert, Marley didn’t make it. There wasn’t a dry eye in the household by the time the credits rolled. Finish my “Foreign Agent” spy novel and take […] […]

Can I be social?

We just returned from our annual trip to the Social Media Conference in San Diego (two trips qualify for calling it an annual event, right?) and I’m happy to tell you, we learned a lot to thrill and delight you over the coming months.  TWWNCBUIP, Shane and the newly Social Me arrived in San Diego […]

It’s just too far to drive…

… so with our SWA tickets in hand we were off to Memphis to attend the premier of the independent film who’s Production Designer was none other than our own C. Michael Andrews. We were able to convince Lincoln and Lola that this would be an even better vacation than staying at their usual spot, the […]

Our Trip to New York …..

By tecture-admin No comments

We said our “goodbyes” to the puppies and headed out the door for Hobby to hop on the company jet for a quick trip to NYC. Before we left, I promised Lola that if she kept watch over her brother while we were gone I would ask our Southwest pilot to dip the wings in salute as we flew over the […]
