Hello Peeps……….cast your mind back to your teens, twenties……..what way did you envisage your life going………..for the girlies was it the fairy tale wedding, country cottage, 2.4 children ( never did figure out what the point 4 was, maybe an arm or a leg of a offspring )……..large garden with chickens, couple of dogs and […]

 Memories Of Summer Fun

What are some of your memories of those childhood summers of, it seems, so long ago? I was browsing through my sites and noticed this mentioned elsewhere. thought I’d post this question to you folks.

 Wise Words…..

What wise words from your upbringing still ring in your ears today or even some nonsensical sayings? ¬†For example: Don’t come running to me when you have broke your leg, after being told a dozen times to get down off the wall Words I say to my own: Your as good as the next person […]

 Back to school!

I love back to school! Why? Because the neighborhood gets quieter! Lol. My grandson asks me to buy him the “coolest” back pack for school, and I’ll drop healthy snacks at their apartment for fun.

 High School Crush

I saw something on a tv sitcom today that reminded me of a personal experience. When I was a 15 year old high school sophomore, I had a big crush on a boy (same age) who was in Choir with me. Actually, I had liked him since we were both in 8th grade. He was […]

 The Mama Bear in Me

A recent blog by Waylander and its comments triggered a memory I want to share. Several years ago, my daughter and I were out together and we stopped to get gas. She got out to pump the gas while waited in the car. I saw a man pull up in a car, straight across from […]
