Quotes

"I'd rather it be too challenging than too easy. I want people to feel they're getting their money's worth" Easterly says, adding that it's easier to lead people out than knowing they finished the maze unsatisfied
No one knows how long the evacuation will last, but Charles Cicirello was unfazed by it. "I grew up in Florida with hurricanes. This feels like another evacuation. You either evacuate or hunker down. You can't really hunker down with a fire."
Line of the night: "It was as though God kissed my hand when I first pulled the fabric through the sewing machine and held up a finished garment. I discovered all I need in these fingers."
...Don't cut it since cats like tall grass. Check that plants are cat safe. "Many plants are dangerous to cats," Mary Ellen says. "We finally settled on raspberry plants and a little Japanese weeping maple to adorn their outside area and give them shade to sleep under and spy on their siblings."
