I have this wonderful grandson named Wilson who has an equally wonderful brother named Anderson.  I am compelled to mention this because Wilson is the subject of this particular post and Anderson is just cute and deserves to be recognized as such (says his granny).  Although Wilson has only been around for the last four plus years, […]

I sat at my desk on Monday, shuffling through the pile of paper that threatens to avalanche into the floor at any moment. The usual Monday interruptions came and went—telemarketers selling things we didn’t need (and often had never heard of), people wanting to change our phone service provider or credit card processor, very nice […]

There are times that I absolutely despise Facebook.  It’s not the random sharing of far more information than I often want and definitely do not need that is so very bothersome.  It’s the unpleasant surprises that you innocently scroll into while wading through untold shares of political positions, cute kitty pictures, and other such stuff.  Last night was […]

I’m fortunate enough to live in the middle of 42 acres and still be inside the city limits of our little town. And I’m fortunate enough to see things up close and personal that a lot of other “city folks” may never experience—like a ‘possom or a raccoon two inches away from my face, on […]

I am a Christmas junkie.  There.  I said it.  I revel in all things Christmas, unless there is an abundance of glitter involved in which case I dislike cleaning up the mess—and being all sparkly.  And of all things Christmas, the thing I like the most is Christmas music.  It’s all I listen to from the day immediately following Thanksgiving […]
