If I could turn and meet myself as I was then,gaze into that solemn face, those unblinking eyes,I suppose I’d laugh until I cried, then laugh again. — from The Kookaburra’s Song Let the laughter begin! I actually got an email from Coach Steele this morning asking me […]

Take My Breath Away

I am too busy for blogging. I hate when that happens. It’s the municipal election. It’s BnM. It’s spring cleaning. It’s income tax preparation. It’s life in general and trying to get out of the house for daily walking. Yesterday my copies of The Sharp Review with my […]

The Pretender

My blog reached a milestone the other day . . . 1,000 posts. Wow! Maybe I am prolific 🙂 So yesterday kinda turned into a bust day of recharging, spent mostly in my inbox just dealing. Did not get a lot done on my list . . . […]

Give A Little Bit

And my crazy weekend ends. Just in the nick. Capt’n, she canna take much more! Hold her together, Scotty! The weekend was fabulous. From beginning to end. Just totally fabulous. Thursday night was amazing. It could not have gone any better. I could not get over how many […]

Angel of Harlem

A sunny Sunday morning. It is Easter and I’m home alone, no eggs, no chocolate, no roast pork with mashed potatoes, gravy, baked carrots, and certainly no apple crisp or pie of any kind. When you can’t trust yourself not to partake, just stay home! No, I’m kidding. […]

Who Wants to Live Forever

I wrote 1841 words on a new story last week. It probably doesn’t seem like a lot, but for me, on a personal story, not related to BnM, this is pretty major. It’s all because I took a good friend’s advice and committed to writing 10 new words […]


I am so sore in through my sides and legs. It’s from exercising on Monday. I always get sore the second day after, then I do it again and it goes away. So I guess I need to do some exercise today. Yesterday was a pretty good day. […]

It Ain’t Me, Babe

Johnny & June doing a little Bob Dylan reminds me I still do not own Walk the Line on dvd. Must remedy that situation. It’s a crazy kinda weather day. A little creepy, these howling winds, very Stephen King. I had hoped to get out today and pick […]
