6 Years...

Wow. Another year and the Fritter is still going strong.  Amazing.  When I started this little voyage I had no idea where it would lead and if it would even last, yet here we are, still sailing along, at least digitally if not on the water. It has been fun though, and never seeming to […]

Summer ended over the weekend here in the southern Arctic known as central Pennsylvania.  For the past few weeks it has been nice and warm, temps up near 90, with lows at night in the 70’s, and all everyone did around here is bitch about the heat.  Except me of course.  But on the past Sunday, […]

In case you are wondering, no I have not forgotten the monthly budget post. I still don’t have internet yet and I have been a bit lazy with the blog. I’ll get it up during the week sometime. It ain’t pretty neither so you ain’t missing anything. Anyways, it’s another exciting Saturday night as I […]

I got into a little conversation over on the peanut concerning a certain someone who is being rather stubborn and making excuses about not publishing a book she has written.  I’m sure she will come around to the dark side soon.  If a know nothing, english class dropout like myself can do it, anyone can.
