After so much angst, thought, family members weighing in and deliberation....we decided to name our new Welsh Pembroke Corgi puppy, "DYLAN."
His name is from Welsh folklore and means, "of the sea." A name which is heavily weighted toward love of water, we knew this was the one. We live… Read full post »
Having a family feud over naming our new puppy to be. He is an 11 week Welsh Pembroke Corgi, runt of the litter, a "Red" and fluffly cuteness, to beat the band.
Rocker names welcome. His cousins are, Alice Cooper (a French Bulldog) and Freddy Mercury (a rescue cat… Read full post »
It should have been in quotes.
Don't know who first said it, but it was surely said, none the less.
Really don't give a rat's ass what it means, but it comes raining in like a canceled parade.
So what do you do with it?
We ponder often,… Read full post »
There's all kinds of news. Good news (rarely). Bad news (often) and just news, weather and sports.
But, this evening, the news took on a different cast...
The cast of "All my Children" will be looking for work elsewhere.
The horror! AMC going away! Buh bye! Gone! O… Read full post »
Don't be serious.
You're not doing yourself any favors right now.
Looks don't make it so.
Asked and answered.
Fractured fairy tales.
GPS can track your phone.
And be justified.
I need to know.
Far less intrusive.
Something very important missing.
We've learned three very important… Read full post »
"Into each life, some rain must fall."
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ~
Yet, what a sight to behold.
We muck along; we get through.
Come what may, we overcome.
Our fears, our hesitation; our triumphs.
We weather the storm.
We pray for hope and ask for… Read full post »
Potatoes and beer will do it to ya.
The naughty ale makes her nose turn red.
A dead give-a-way that she has been tipping a few...
That's all it takes for me dear mum, Rosie, from the Mc Manley clan,
No Irishmen or lass can rhythm work… Read full post »
It's late, but that never stopped me from expressing what's on my mind.
The news is daunting.
Unstoppable shifts beneath us
Moment by moment.
Life scurrying to and fro.
Where and when it will stop, nobody can know.
A meltdown of catastrophic proportions
Beyond o… Read full post »
What a wonderful surprise!
For years, a lot of years, say...
oh my good god!
40 years or more?
yes! since high school.
I have wondered what happened to my summer buddy, Mary G.
One of my earliest crushes was her younger brother, Arthur (above).

Paying little or no attention to the thunderous testosterone surrounding us, we gingerly ordered our third round of Cosmos. Bad girls. We all lived within a few miles of the notorious establishment and could easily take all the back roads to avoid the check points. Encouraging each… Read full post »
Authors note: I chose to use one of the four selected words as my title. I will now attempt to build an entire story out of the remaining three words:
Or, was it?
She was as gregarious as she was unflinching in her acceptance...

I have been craving good coleslaw for a while now. Haven't been able to find any for months at my favorite deli, so must be a seasonal thing for them. Love making my own, however and with the weekend here, I will be gathering the following ingredients and making up a… Read full post »

is a poem a poem if it don't rhyme?
is it a pity if a miss spell is caught in a crime?
can you manage to read it if it has no stance?
when you try too hard,
impossible not to rhyme it

What's in a day,
if not a special occasion for all time?
Be it any other day, a day so sublime.
Celebrate my love;
it's free to all who receive.
It springs forth from whence it bubbled up
To chance, to dare conceive.
For not one day,… Read full post »
Sweet lies whispered in a lover's ear.
Sometimes better when apart.
Grinding noise won't drown the fear
In matters of the heart.
Dizzying dance of fire
The blare of a drum.
So sexy the exhale,
Lids lying low;
Lips opening to the strum
The din.… Read full post »
It simply just occurred to me that I do not want to die alone. That is not to say that I want someone to die with me, but rather, I do not want to be alone when the event occurs.
It seems to be an event of sorts, unless it happens… Read full post »
flawed for a second
such is life
why else are we here if not for flaws
resolutely flawed by the inception of our conception
flawed by nature
its innate flaws
all together now
a consumate vow

As historians would have it, being of British descent and a May… Read full post »
