- Life has been a bit strange lately, both good and bad. I hope to come back to OS when I learn to write for myself and no one else.
and on FaceBook or if you want to talk just message me and I'll give you my phone number or Skype name. I got nothing to hide!

I want to tell you about what happened yesterday at work but a word or two about 9/11 first.
We weren't suppose to be on the internet at work that day but.... As I sat processing insurance claims a co-worker called over to me and said to go to CNN because… Read full post »
Every year on Labor Day the thought crosses my mind that I
don’t understand how my having a day off from work honors the
I’d like to think of myself as laboring but, as some of you know, I sit in a cubicle for six hours a day answering… Read full post »
Have you ever been in a grocery store when there’s a baby crying? It can drive you crazy. The sound echoes off the walls and ceiling and it sounds like the room is filled with crying babies. You go into the store for some milk and you grab the 1% instead… Read full post »
The first time I ever went to a dermatologist I must have been in my late 30's. A biopsy was done on a spot on my arm and when they called me back a couple of weeks later to tell me that it was malignant I was scared. It was removed… Read full post »
You know how sappy I can be when it comes to talking about trees or the ocean or my grandson or just about anything else. Well, this one is about finding beauty in a stretch of asphalt. Don't see how I can get very sappy over that? Just you watch and… Read full post »
It is Friday afternoon, 2 o'clock, and I just got off from work. Will you go for a ride with me? There's a place north of town called Big Talbot Island and I think it is one of the most beautiful places around here.
OK, great! Hop in! Sorry about the… Read full post »
I've written about my grandson before but you've never seen him. Today he was so cute I couldn't resist sharing him with you.
He is very difficult to photograph since he doesn't know how to slow down.
And don't even try to turn his hat… Read full post »
I recently changed from an iPod Nano to my iPhone and I'm not sure how many songs it will hold. Maybe someone can tell me. My expert estimate is "ass loads".
I know I have become isolated in the music I listen to and want to broaden my scope but… Read full post »
I HATE Three O'clock In The Morning!!!
I want to grab it by its scrawny neck, spin it 'round and with a flick of my wrist snap its head off like my grandmother used to do with the chicken for Sunday dinner.
I want to watch it run around the back… Read full post »
You are born into a family or find one soon after and become a part of a whole. Nurtured and secure in that unit, you grow.
As you age there may be times when you lament "nobody understands me" but there always seems to be someone there saying, "girl, I know… Read full post »
I don’t know where she came from but a small hand was grasping mine and pulling me along. As we approached an old gnarled tree she released her grip, turned and gestured for me to follow. Her body slipped between the tree and, well I’m not sure, between the tree and… Read full post »
Juice, seeds dripping from my chin
Make me think of you
Your Password Will Expire In 10 Days. Do You Want To Change It Now?
No, why should I? It doesn't expire for 10 more days. What's the rush? Why the hell should I do it now? It'll just be that much sooner that I have to do it again.
I came across a couple of pieces which I wrote several years ago. If you've followed any of my recent posts you'll understand how the first one so aptly described me at the time.
(Thank you, Steve, for the title.)
I see her and

Anyone who read my post What Do You Put In Your Bra knows that when I don’t have a pocket for my cell phone I tuck it into my bra. It is just a little flip phone and tucks quite nicely into the cleavage. If you thought when you read it… Read full post »
I work every other Saturday and get a weekday off on that week. This is my day off and I am enjoying it to the fullest.
Life becomes so structured sometimes and I hate structure with every fiber of my being. Sometimes on my day off family matters come up and… Read full post »
My green dress
Walking in the rain
Figs dipped in dark chocolate, juicy and sweet
Why can I only say, “I love you”?
Fills me up
Takes my breath
Brings beauty to my life
Transforms me like a rain storm in spring

This is my tree.
She is marked in my mind with a big "S".
Walking through the parking lot at work one day I said to my companion, "Isn't that a beautiful tree?"
She turned, looked up and replied, "Yes, it is and leave it to you… Read full post »
For anyone who has not read the first five parts of this series you might be interested in going back to see how I came to be traveling on the road with a group of wonderful people being lead by a man who was convinced that he had a “mission from… Read full post »
My two daughters are cat and dog lovers but not me. I don't lilke the hair on my carpet or floating around on my hardwood floors. I don't like the smell of doggie breath or doggie farts.
So why did I wind up with this dog in my house?

When you asked about the writing process my first response was to leave a quick comment and not get involved in matters too high for myself. I am new to OS and am working very hard to improve my writing skills but by no means consider myself a writer.… Read full post »

I have not been proud of my government for the past few years and most of the time I feel pretty helpless to make any changes. I campaigned and voted for Barack Obama and have hope for the future but he can only do so much and the job seems monumental.… Read full post »
I have a dirty little secret to confess.
When I first started posting on OS I went through what I now know to be true with a lot of people. Hardly anybody commented on my posts. I would write my little heart out and get between two and none. I… Read full post »
