DO YOU TALK TO THEM?

There are so many times in life all we seem to focus on is the bad or negative moments from our past.  We really need to change that! I hit another milestone in life this last month. Turned 60-years young on the 16th. Turned 20-years since Columbine (yes, I lived in Denver during that tragedy) … Continue reading DO YOU TALK TO THEM?

CAN YOU TELL IT’S NOT MY PASSION?

I should go further – it’s not even in my list of possibilities.  Being a great cook that it.  I love watching others do it, but when it comes to my own abilities – not a chance.  The other day I posted on my other blog that I burned myself while crafting: As of this … Continue reading CAN YOU TELL IT’S NOT MY PASSION?

Just Sex, Or Something Much Better?

Get out of the gutter everyone!  This post is not about sex, it is about a kiss. I have been watching sappy (yes, chick-flicks) movies since just before Christmas.  Maybe the loss of our older sister put me in the mood for memories, maybe it was just the time of year.  The problem is I … Continue reading Just Sex, Or Something Much Better?

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! (Promise not to laugh too hard?)

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…
