Today’s Pictures: 21 Mar 21

Published by Time Traveler of Life

Biography Creating worlds, characters, and wielding power like a madwoman, making my characters happy, sad, angry, and some of them with no redeeming qualities. I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I sometimes laugh out loud when I am writing a scene, and I have been known to cry when one of my favorites has to die. I am a left-handed Gemini, what do you expect? Reading bedtime stories to my two children until they fell asleep or until they just told me to go away, was fun. Making up wild stories for my grandchild, and creating Halloween costumes from Cowboys to a Dragon, was another favorite thing to do. I missed that so much when they were grown, that I started writing. My yearly newsletters frequently were drafted third-person by my Love Birds, Miranda our motorhome, and by Sir Fit the White Knight, our faithful Honda. Throughout the years, some of my creative talents centered around writing letters of complaint expressing my displeasure with services or products. One crucial, at least to my Son, was a note to our local school bus driver petitioning her to allow him back on the bus. He was kicked off for making an obscene gesture at his buddy. I reminded her that it was not directed at her, and that “obscenity can be in the eye of the beholder,” kids use that gesture as a greeting. He rode the bus until he graduated. I loved driving my English teacher crazy. Leaving a “continued next week” at the end of my five handwritten pages required each week. He was one of many people that suggested I “do something about my writing.” I graduated from the School of Hard Knocks at the top of my class. After 30 years, in the trenches as a Real Estate Professional, I have found that truth is stranger than fiction. My books are filled with characters I met in that profession. Their names were changed to protect the guilty. Others were from people we met traveling around the country in Miranda, our Motorhome. I am married nearly 60 years to the love of my life, Shirl, and partner-produced two exceptionally talented children, and one grandchild who is our pride and joy.

  1. Wow I have missed the forest. I am looking forward to getting back to reading post again. I have missed my friends. 🤗💕❤️🥰

  2. Haha. Does that mean don’t know shit. I don’t think I knew that one. You are hilarious my friend. I am so glad you have your
    Tri computers back. What a great Sun you have my friend. I would have charged you waffles too and I really don’t know S—T. Love you Joni 🤗❤️💕

  3. You are so sweet my friend. I love waffles and I am sure yours were homemade, even better. I am trying so hard to get rid of my ten pounds I have gained since Covid, in fact we make a joke, which I don’t mean any disrespect by this either, that during Covid 19 we have gained 19 lbs between us. I exercise but not enough when you make a sweet potato pie made with cream and eat the entire thing in two days. One day we both had a slice for breakfast. We usually eat well but I just love sweets. I bet you have a great son (sun) that is just so sweet. Big love and hugs to you dear friend. xoxoxo

  4. I had my Doctor apt yesterday and I am pleased and not pleased that I have gained less than 10 pounds, but it is on my stomach. Time to hop on the rowing machine. I also love sweets! Chocolate is my downfall, I am a chocoholic! I used to make an incredible chocolate cake with fudge frosting. I do make waffles and pancakes from scratch, and I am a decent pizza maker. That is why I am not skinny. Its my Mother’s fault. I have never has potato pie. Bring one with you, okay? Love and hugs to you.
