Guess what?

My latest book has been uploaded, but hold the presses, it will take a few days for Kindle to review. I am not totally happy with the justification, and will probably work on it and reload it. Most readers will not notice the difference, but I will. This is the sequel to Murder on LakeContinue reading “Guess what?”

Going back to school

I just discovered that Kindle is doing a whole new thing! Out with the old and in with the new! We used to type our manuscript and format it for an ebook and again for a Paperback book. I read about the new way until my eyes were so tired I put a cold clothContinue reading “Going back to school”

Good Morning!

Poor Miranda has been put out to pasture for three years and she is tired of doing nothing. She talked to us and demanded that we clean her up! We were planning on having our Dawta sleep in her while she is visiting us. She gently told us she needs a bath and some deepContinue reading “Good Morning!”

Take what you need!

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just pick one of these whenever we needed it? And as soon as one is picked, it is replaced with another one just like it. Yeah, I know, some people will grab them all, but it doesn’t matter if they are replaced as often as they are taken.Continue reading “Take what you need!”

Life Goes On

Has the last year of social isolation made you appreciate the freedom that we used to have? Yes, I know many of you went on as if there was no pandemic, and many of you got away with your foolish actions without a hitch. But others were not so lucky, over a half-million total, andContinue reading “Life Goes On”

“How may I help You”?

Do you remember the “good old days” when if you had a question you could pick up the phone and in minutes get a real live person on the phone to answer your questions? Our children and grandchildren will remember our good old days when you NEVER could get a real person on the phone,Continue reading ““How may I help You”?”

Do not annoy the little woman

  My husband and I were still newlyweds when he was “invited” or “commanded” to attend a cocktail party at his Regional Managers prestigious home just outside of Boston Massachusets We were excited, of course, to see how the upper class lived.  When we arrived were offered a drink, I, of course, accepted a glassContinue reading “Do not annoy the little woman”

Bigger, Stronger, and Smarter, but not necessarily in that order!

My philosophy of raising children is simple.  You need patience, lots of patience!  And you need to talk to them. Discipline is okay, but those little people are incredibly smart, and they can reason. They remember everything, and later in life, your actions to and for them will bite you in the ass. You, rightContinue reading “Bigger, Stronger, and Smarter, but not necessarily in that order!”

Will Rogers

Will Rogers, who died in a plane crash with Wylie Post in 1935, was probably the greatest political sage this country has ever known.  Enjoy the following: “Ten men in our country could buy the whole world and ten million can’t buy enough to eat.” – Will Rogers “It takes a lifetime to build a good reputation,Continue reading “Will Rogers”

Koyaanisqatsi

There are those that see the handwriting on the wall! One tribe doesn’t care because they have an exit strategy, and the other wants to fight to preserve. It is a toss-up who wins.

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with Homemade Ice Magic

Now you are talking! Love it! We used to make ice cream at home and vanilla cookies for invitation-only “Ice Cream Social!”

Mt. Kenya: The Abode of the Gikuyu God.

It is too bad that when we encounter a new name we do not take the time to lead the proper pronunciation. If I sounded it out right it has a better sound, although Kenya is okay. It is beautiful with the mist and snow.

Faith Quote By Pope John Paul Ii: “Faith and Reason…”

I am not a religious person but I believe there should be a lot more reason used in faith!

Why Every African Should Be Rich: Lessons From an African Childhood

Making your own toys is no confined to African children. Growing up as poor as dirt we made many of our own games and played them with the same gusto. Many skinned knees, scraped elbows, and more. The great story grabbed me and held me, would love to read more.

Temple of the Moon Treehouse Lodge, Seattle, Washington

Waterfall Wall, Swindon, England

That waterfall is beautiful! So peaceful and tranquil! A great place to read a good book or just contemplate the universe!

So you wanta buy a car, sweetie?

Many years ago when I was a fresh faced Real Estate Agent! I had my heart set on a new car. I worked my little tush off earning money, and it was burning a hole in my pocket. The fact I was driving clients around in a pale blue Volkswagon bus was my motivation. MyContinue reading “So you wanta buy a car, sweetie?”

Honesty Quote By Angelica Hopes: “Carry on an…”

Telling the truth should be second nature. I had a motto in my 30 years of Real Estate: Do the right thing because it’s right! People don’t always want to hear the truth, but it kept me out of trouble.

Success Quote By Yuri Van Der Sluis: “Sales is like…”
