Is This You? | Just Pick One!

By Trina Machacek Sometimes I think if I have to make one more choice I’m going to melt into a puddle of goo. Do I really have to know the best detergent to use? I’m tired of deciding which soda to drink so much so that I have started to drink some kind of instant… [More…]

Is This You? | Life Changes Us All

By Trina Machacek We sit in the back row at church. No real reason for this. It just happens that way. So the back of my head of hair has not been an issue—until now. I was drying my hair after a shower and I happened to see what I thought was a lone stray… [More…]

Is this You? | Watch Yourself

Is This You? | Flying Spiders

Is this You? I Don’t Like To

By Trina Machacek Would you be able to tell me what a GE cupboard is? I wonder. My father commented on our GE cupboard regularly. In his heyday he would have a nightly bowl of cornflakes just before bedtime. He, not unlike a kid or probably most of us, had his “special bowl.” For his… [More…]

Is This You? The Hammock

By Trina Machacek As the rushing river of summer starts to become a bubbling brook I have found time to use our hammock a bit more and I must say that whoever invented this backyard playpen needs to get a big ole gold toned metal to wear upon his or her chest. Maybe the metal… [More…]
