Breaking Up is Hard to Do

I want to end it with Facebook, but I can’t bring myself to say good-bye. I have my reasons for wanting to stay, the most obvious being my desire to stay connected to people I wouldn’t otherwise connect with. Let’s face it, things have changed. When I first met Facebook, it was a cool place … Continue reading

Making Memories

My dad died. I’ve been trying to make sense of things since I got the news. Our relationship was…. complicated, and I don’t want to talk about that here. Death makes me think of a clean cut with a sharp knife that removes a limb, but not the phantom sensations. My father is no longer … Continue reading

How Could That Have Happened?

How could Larry Nasser get away with molesting so many girls for so long?  . To answer that question, I’ll ask a few others. How was Jerry Sandusky able to sexually abuse boys for years, though others had reported his behavior? How was a serial sexual predator elected president of the United States, even though … Continue reading

Living in the Now

One thing about Trump being our president: he’s led more people to live in the now than Eckhart Tolle. From the threat of nuclear war to the fear of a long, drawn-out government shutdown, many of us are embracing gratitude for what we have in the moment and knowing at any minute things could change. … Continue reading

What I Want for the New Year

At last we count down to saying good-bye to this no-good, very bad year. For me, 2017 cannot be gone too soon.  I hope the new year brings some positive changes. Here are some I’d like to see in 2018: A total ban on fireworks. Yes, they are pretty. They also scare the daylights out of … Continue reading

I’m Telling You the Truth, I Swear!

There are plenty of people out there telling us lies… if you can believe that. Continue reading

Talking About Retail…

I have made the decision that it’s time to move on. To be clear, I miss Rumpy, Buggie and Bubba dearly, and I will for a long time to come. But they are no longer here. Graybie, Hissy, Yella and Little Girl are. As am I, and our lives go on. I best get in … Continue reading

“We’re All Sick of It”

I donate blood through the American Red Cross. You can tell when it’s time to give again because they bug the shit out of me with daily calls and emails until I sign up to give. They caught me this weekend and convinced me to donate at a local blood drive that was held yesterday. … Continue reading

It’s All Her Fault!

While shopping Thursday I heard a store clerk tell a customer that Elizabeth Thomas, the 15-year-old TN girl abducted by school teacher Tad Cummins, was found with Cummins in a cabin in northern California. Then the clerk commented that of course Elizabeth went willingly. I am flabbergasted that so many people see nothing wrong here. They say … Continue reading

Conservatives, Liberals, and the Rest of Us

When I was a little girl I was told that if I just worked hard, I’d be rewarded for my efforts. I’ll bet you learned that lesson too. Little did we know it was all bullshit.  We worked harder and harder, but our wages didn’t match the cost of living, so we were losing. Then … Continue reading
