Charm As Cheap As Table Salt

Okay, my last blog was mega angry and I posted a poem condemning guns.  I was simply SICK of mass shootings in America's schools (still am...and I stand by my poem 100%).  But I'll try to post some lighter material/pretty photos/fluff this time.  Goodness, we could all use a break from trauma and despair -- … Continue reading Charm As Cheap As Table Salt

But If You’re Willing To Play The Game, It’s Coming Around Again

Ahhh, I look so relaxed in this photo, don't I?  This was taken on the very first day of 2017.  I took it myself, and the truth is this:  I was anything BUT relaxed.  At the time, I was dating a man who was on an extended trip to Italy, and he pretty much never … Continue reading But If You’re Willing To Play The Game, It’s Coming Around Again

A few weeks ago, I had … Continue reading On Beating The Odds And Beautifying The World

I Guess I’ll Pack Up My Mind

For spring break 2017, I took my daughter Lana and her boyfriend Michael on vacation. Another long road trip to Florida... I thought about going to California, but that is WAYYY too long to drive, and airfare for three people was a ridiculous price. Florida has the nicest, clearest water within decent driving distance.  Besides, … Continue reading I Guess I’ll Pack Up My Mind

The Tide Is High But I’m Holding On

In recent months, I've been busier than a three-balled tomcat.  Not having as much fun as the tri-baller, though -- mostly work, work, work for me. It was time to take a much needed break. For the second year in a row, I was able to take my daughter away for a nice beach vacation.  … Continue reading The Tide Is High But I’m Holding On
