Three Brothers and a Bar

      Walks Into a Bar... Beer Brothers                           A man walks into a bar and orders three beers. The bartender brings him the three beers, and the man proceeds to alternately sip one, then the other, then the...

Such Is Life

Four and a half hours of driving to go to court.  Three hours of waiting, with my ex-husband, for our turn.  Four and a half hours back home.  All the emotions and bullshit whirling around.  Sigh.  I'm not even sure how to start describing this.  I...

It's Not A Vacation, It's A Quest

          Summer is around the corner, and it's almost time to pack up the Family Truckster and hit the road to see the beauty and pageantry of 21st Century America.           As Americans, we have virtually limitless choices when we're ready to...

Friday the 13th

The sickness in our household is subsiding.  The boy woke up with an appetite, my beloved is the same.  Yay!  Of course, I now have a sore throat and my body feels............achy.  I'll keep that to myself.  No one is vomiting or feverish, I'm...

The Cheerful Imp…

While listening to a gay mockingbird, I contemplate various “dreams deferred.” Is this crazy bird a carefree cynic? What motivates his urge to mimic? Although its coloring is largely gray, a mockingbird has something to say. When around my window he’s...

Just a few lines to make you shake your head

The first couple of chapters were awful, but by the end I loved it.   What’s the difference between in-laws and outlaws?  Outlaws are wanted.   I just got hit by a rented car.
 It Hertz. ...

Well, chuckle, Just Another Day in Paradise.......

Received no card or call from the four children who don't live with me, on Mother's Day.  Not much skin off my nose.  I woke up with a sty in my eye, my beloved awoke with a fever and a severe, worsening cold.  I got a card my littlest one, every time...

MY Mother's Day......

I've been a mother since I was 16 years old.  NEVER a perfect mother, but, a memorable one.  Event the three don't send cards or call speak of me.  I hear that through the one who does.  A few years ago, my oldest, in a way he "thought" I wouldn't...
