My heart is with those in New England right now. Be safe, snuggle in, and enjoy the beauty of it all.

Children however, line … Continue reading The GREAT Snowstorms of Our Lives
Do you really think pecans come from the grocery store? And..... that's it? No. It's November in Mississippi and my pecan trees have been torn to shreds.

The Great Pumpkin
Have you ever seen one up close? These are the Granddaddies of Pumpkins. And once you see one, you want one. Can't remember how it started. The details are fuzzy. Yet, somewhere, somehow, I saw one of these pumpkins, asked about it, and figured out it came from Vardaman, Mississippi. Back then, I was dating … Continue reading The Great Pumpkin

In Honor of Ida
Hurricane Ida is posed to strike the coast of Louisiana in the next few days. Yet, I can't speak about "Ida" without thinking of my honorary Drag Queen name ---- Ida Slapter..... read as, I'da slap'ter... or.... I would have slapped her. How I came to be known as Ida, ..... Well, that's another story. … Continue reading In Honor of Ida
I wish parents were given a Guide Book on how to inspire their children. Heaven knows, I would have read it. Yet, kids are funny and every one of them.....unique. One never knows where or when circumstances will arise to motivate them, cause them to act, inspire them, or cause their curiosity to tweak. But … Continue reading Divine Inspiration

Dr. Eddie, Sean Hannity, ABC News, and My Kid.
On Monday, July 5, 2021, Sean Hannity did an hour long interview with Dr. Eduardo Rodriguez of NY Langone. The story and interview were incredible. Worthy of a repeat on Youtube if you missed it the first time. But I have to tell you about Dr. Eddie. Gunner was in 2nd grade, playing Little League … Continue reading Dr. Eddie, Sean Hannity, ABC News, and My Kid.
20210611: Wrapping Presents

I was secretly jealous of friends who had large families, raucous holidays with cousins, more akin … Continue reading 20210611: Wrapping Presents
