Fitting in

Date November 11, 2010

There are days when I am so homesick for California I feel as though I will snap in two from the force of emotions.  I’m not so sure it’s the people I miss (though I do miss my brother and his family, and my Robin “PHO!”) as much as it is the familiararity.  The feeling of [...]

Letting go of dreams

Date August 29, 2008

May I be frank here? Letting go of my, her, my, her MY dreams. Now that I’ve admitted it, I don’t feel any better. Let me see if I can clarify. First off, let me start off by saying that 9th grade has been tough on Chickie, mainly in the homework department. It wouldn’t be [...]

Celebrities and death

Date July 5, 2006

It’s always fascinated me to watch people go wild over celebrities. They join the fan clubs, and know just about everything that has ever been in print about the person in question. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with being a fan, but I really think some folks take it one step too [...]

I didn't know that

Date February 3, 2006

I hitched a ride with my lovely sister Leslie today, and we stopped off here for a brief visit. People who live a virtual life don’t have actual experiences. Their blogs tend to reflect that. I can’t understand why people are so hungry to share their every waking thought with the rest of the world [...]

Georgia's Move Over Law

Date January 31, 2006

Shouldn’t this go without saying? It surprises me that they even need to put it in a law. Personally, I think they should add jail time to the fine. Go figure.

Sunday morning reflections

Date November 13, 2005

It’s amazing what a beautiful morning can do to lift your spirits, isn’t it? The sun is shinning, the air is crisp, but not too cold. I don’t think it could get any better. This is what we call the perfect day in Georgia. It fills me with energy and a happiness that knows no [...]

The Kiss

Date September 7, 2005

He had just saved her from a fire in her house, rescuing her by carrying her out of the house into her front yard, while he continued to fight the fire. She is pregnant. The firefighter was afraid of her at first, because he had never been around a Doberman before. When he finally got [...]


Date August 10, 2005

I was a little bothered by this post that I read over at Genuine’s today about this woman. It was in reference to this post and some of the comments there, some allegedly made by Dooce herself. I visit Genuine’s blog on a semi regular basis. I enjoy it. He writes entries several times a [...]

Hospital Windows

Date May 16, 2005

“There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations. Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.” The above quote, and the story that follows were sent to me by a friend via email. I felt the message was a good one, and wanted to share. Whenever my [...]
