Going Blank

Going Blank

Back-in-the-day, as they say, we had to manually defrost the freezer of our refrigerator periodically.  I still remember the process of taking everything out of the freezer, temporarily putting it in the refrigerator portion below, and boiling pans of water to place...

I can still remember my first drive across the desert. It was part of an adventurous road trip with two college buddies in the heat of a summer where the temperatures were reaching degrees that, in my young life, I had not imagined possible. It was long before the...
