I blog about parenting.
If you’re looking for the latest trend in massive mondo strollers, yoga pants, sparking pedophile Vampires, chins dripping in blood, dark evil Vampire Lords, tiger mom shit, you’ve come to the wrong blog.
So here we go… this is the story.
In 1849 several groups of Vampires headed West of California for a new beginning. They were part of the growing movement, later called the “Modern Vampire Movement, of individuals who no longer wanted to live in the dark, hidden away. They lived with regular people, as regular people, except they were Vampires. Aside from their hidden identities and some rather different biology and lifestyle issues they were indistinguishable from most people.
My family settled in the Sacramento area, where some of us till love. I was born here, part of a family of rare Vampire children. Yes, Vampires can had children together. They can’t have kids with non-Vampires.
Werewolves also moved West and lived in their communities as well. They could always be picked out of crowd by their flashy clothing and snarky personalities.
That is about it. No blood dripping Dark Vampire Lord. No sparkling pedophiles. Sure there are what we call Shadow Creepers. They’re the Vampires who act like creepy ghouls, in the shadows and lurk in the dark at night. There are also those who are truly dead due to the fact that they have no souls. They’re the dangerous ones. OK, fine, we’re all dangerous to some point, but seriously less so than our warmer blooded relatives.
This is the end of the explanation.
I write about my family and my world.
My message isn’t really about Vampires.
This is what it is about:
- Talking to your kids.
- Listening to your kids.
- Cat Poetry.
- Accepting differences.
- Modern Life.
- Fitting in.
- Not fitting in.
- Being different.
- Being the same.
- Talking to your kids.
- Communication with your children.
- Short fiction.
- Odds and ends.
- Old people.
- Life changes.
- Empty nest.
- Deliberate parenting.
- Old or interesting cemeteries.
- Funny stuff.
- Burning Questions.
- Possums (and other woodland creatures)
- Other things.
- Being there for your kids. Always.
I believe that covers most of it. I’m still half asleep so if I left something out I’ll post it later. I need either more coffee or I need to go back to bed. I’m not sure which yet. I’ll know in about five minutes.
Thanks for dropping by.

You forgot possums!
Oh crap. I’ll add them to the list.
And a packet of locusts.
Awwww man, I always forget the locusts. We don’t have them out where I live. Summer nights are filled with the sounds of crickets and frogs but no locusts. But hey, just think about this. I have frogs and you have locusts so if we ever need a biblical plague we’ve got it covered. High five girlfriend.
We have fireflies, too, or as we were taught “lightning bugs.”
