Little Girls…

Little girls come into your life and they nuzzle up and reach in and steal your heart.  They do this easily and quickly. I always wanted to have five boys.  That was my dream when I was young.  I wanted enough boys to have a pick up basketball team.  I always thought I would haveContinue reading “Little Girls…”

And another year has passed…

Children make you old.  Not a complaint, just an observation.   When my Dad would call me on my birthday (the years he remembered it was my birthday), he would always ask how old I was.   I always thought it was strange, he may have been joking, but it was the age of rotary or pushContinue reading “And another year has passed…”

I got up, fixed some macaroni salad, put some beans in to bake and got hot dogs and hamburgers ready for the grill. I made cherryContinue reading “Over three decades ago….”

Ode to a Friend (Happy Birthday Susie!)

To my dear friend, Susie, happy birthday! I couldn’t find a card that expressed my thoughts or feelings and so I did not buy one.  Besides, you make such gorgeous cards that most in the store pale in comparison to your creations. My friend Susie, for those who aren’t aware, has been a lifetime friend. Continue reading “Ode to a Friend (Happy Birthday Susie!)”
