I Wonder if it Still Smells the Same

I grew up on a lake. A small lake, but still, a lake. In the middle of the city. Of course, I didn’t realize how incredibly AMAZING that was as a kid, but as an all grown up person, I now see it’s VALUE!!! AND AWESOMENESS! ahem Anyhoo, my grandparents also lived on this lake. In my teens, when we…

My Kayak is Pretty Beat Up

There are the BIG ones, you know? The ones that we can all point to and say, “That one. That one right there made the difference in my life.” Imagine yourself in a kayak, and everyone who influences your life nudges your kayak in one direction or another. For example, eight years ago I was floating down my Life River…

It Was a Good Day!

Here we are, in the Vineyard that, to me, has no name because I’m not sure that I ever heard what the name was. Hmm, should find that out so I can send them a thank you note. After we dropped off the short people at Gram’s, Pastor JT and I headed out. We were too dang hungry to go…

It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way

Boog came home from playing at the neighbors house and behind her followed…the neighbors. Two sweet little girls have moved in right behind us and they are precious. However, one was in tears. Big ones. I thought certainly she had hurt herself, but that wasn’t the case. I found out in short order that a different neighbor, we’ll call her…

First Comic Kicked off the Stage

Last Comic Standing has started this year and every time it does I wonder if I could do stand up. I think I’m funny. People laugh at me. I get gaffaws. I am dern witty and kinda cute. But I just don’t think I could get on stage and perform a funny joke line. I think my humor is better…
