I feel like Tim Allen this afternoon. Do you remember his TV show called Home Improvement? I used to love the passion he had when he described one of his high powered gadgets. Remember that little rruurruurr growl he would give?
Well check out this bad girl that I just picked up this afternoon. She’s an 18″ Lasko Remote Control Performance Pedestal Fan….Model 1854. She’s got two speeds, she oscillates, and she has a 1, 2 or 4 hour timer. Rruurruurrr!!!!
I assembled this little lady all by myself and there she proudly stands waiting for the test drive tonight. I’m expecting that she’ll be sending all those nasty night sweats running for cover.
I’ve decided to call her Hope.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
