Living along the bank of the Grand River on Abrigador Trail, we are now official river rats--meaning that we live in a floodplain. But the term means more than that since my initials spell rat--and the reflections are ones both in my mind and on the water.

Reading through the Winter
One way to get through the Michigan winter is to read books and watch DVDs. This weekend we watched biographies of Frank Lloyd Wright, Thomas Hart Benton and Mark Twain, the latter two focusing on the heartland of Missouri and fitting right in with the book John is reading to me every morning and night on Harry Truman. We are approaching page 300, still more than 600 pages to go. But as is true with other biographies by David McCullough, it's very well written and we never imagine the book is too long.
