THIS IS A CABIN?

I love getting emails on how to do things.  I also get lots of stuff from things like HGTV with videos or slides on how to do things.  The recent one I received threw me for a loop.  They called it: Countryside Escapes: Luxury Log Cabin in Jackson Hole In all fairness, they did call … Continue reading THIS IS A CABIN?

Where And How Did His Parents Grow Up?

Some of you may find this post, not to your liking.  Please understand that this is not a one-on-one attack or anything so simple.  I am trying to understand what causes this type of behavior? When I first watched the video clip I did not see kids or races or hats, I saw a very … Continue reading Where And How Did His Parents Grow Up?

THE 50s SUCK! (Promise not to laugh too hard?)

I’m not talking about the decade of the 1950s.  I am talking about the ages of 50 to 59 in life. Since this year I will be finally moving out of the 50s, I have earned the right to share how disgusting my 50s were for me.  I will start by sharing the obvious things: … Continue reading THE 50s SUCK!

WHY DOES IT SEEM SO EASY?

I used to work for our local Housing Authority (yep a Government job – eek). I started in the winter of 2000 and left in the spring of 2011. Not that long but, trust me, long enough. When I started, I had no Grandparents raising Grandkids. When I left, I had dozens raising their Grandkids. … Continue reading WHY DOES IT SEEM SO EASY?

Who Would Be In Your Circle?

I was getting ready to post a rant that I wrote titled: How long held hostage? Then I stopped and thought about it. I have been through all kinds of bad stuff. I have friends that have been through similar things. That’s just what life is all about, I think. Yes, we can stand up … Continue reading Who Would Be In Your Circle?

WHAT DO YOU HANG ON TO AND WHY?

What (if anything) do you hang on to?  I have a ton of memories, but (even after the fire) I have only a few physical mementos.  One of the greatest treasures I have is a couple of letters that were sent between my mom and my Aunt Elaine. I know it’s hard for some of … Continue reading WHAT DO YOU HANG ON TO AND WHY?

NO MORE GOALS FOR ME – unless…

I’ve had it with vows, goals, and resolutions!  Anything that has to do with The Big Picture or end result is just ticking me off.  Every year, all year long, I go through the same motions of setting up a ton of goals that I want to reach at any given time.  Then (usually months … Continue reading NO MORE GOALS FOR ME – unless…

THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS PERFECT.

I’ve had it with that word – perfect! I believe we should start a petition to get it removed from everything. If you stop and think about it, no one or nothing is, or ever will be, perfect. The Webster Dictionary definition is: ************************************************************************************** Definition of perfect (Entry 1 of 3) 1a: being entirely without … Continue reading THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS PERFECT.

IN A MINUTE or two, or three.

“I’ll get it in a minute.”  My favorite go-to phrase when I forgot to do something.  Usually, it is because I am very good at the “look, a chicken” thing.  Those of you not familiar with that joke, it expresses how a person can be dead on target to do one thing, then gets pulled … Continue reading IN A MINUTE or two, or three.
