As summer ends

With Summer gone I think back on other Summers. Way before the pandemic. I had promised my son a trip to the water park. If you have ever promised a kid anything, you know once the idea was in his head there was no stopping him. I REALLY needed to shave my legs before putting … Continue reading As summer ends

And 35 years later…

When I was younger and a lot more flexible I still had trouble riding horses. I actually rode pretty decently, what I couldn’t do was get up in the saddle. My brother Harvey worked it out that he would grab the back of my jeans, on the count of three he would pull me up … Continue reading And 35 years later…

And the angels sang!

Ok, all my prayer warriors!!!!!It WORKED!! Settle in for the story. I had been talking to a lady in the Burlington Housing Authority. I had a migraine when I was to meet her.

Adulting Stinks

I guess even God needs a smile now and again! As Adults we know life isn't perfect. I have been shown just how imperfect it is. My friend passed away. Funny how short that sentence looks.

This month I tried to pay rent by sending it via the wire transfer method. I sent it and even got a confirmation number. On Sunday, I did this. … Continue reading Life in the poor lane!!

And the decision was made!

As I sit in a nice house, with baseboard heating, I remember the smell of the school when they first started the heating. A kind of musty smell and the lunchroom was warming up the beef stew (NO!! I don't want to know what was in it!). It made the official start of fall. It … Continue reading And the decision was made!

Catfish… and other fairy tales

I've seen many disaster stories on the subject of "catfish". No, not the kind at the end of your cane pole or even the ones in the fishing pond. The only thing that IS fishy is the awful way people are duped. Yes I have had men (always widowed with at least one child!) try … Continue reading Catfish… and other fairy tales

Pedicure country style!

This was the beginning of a spa day. Not for me. But for Candy. Just in case you don't know Candy is the name of a Percheron horse. Johnny Moore Ranch has two Percheron horses. Gypsy is a mare and Candy is the smaller one. Yes you read that correctly. Candy is the smaller of … Continue reading Pedicure country style!

It involves two things that I am rather bad with. 1 - Cooking and 2 - memories. … Continue reading My (IN)famous cooking skills
