We buried our last furbaby today. Sassy was 15 years old. I woke up to find that she was unable to walk or stand. SweetieOfStar spent the last few hours just holding her. She's with her sister, Tigger, that we lost last year. Tigger spent... Read more
The Great Lakes and Headaches and a Laugh

It's that time of year again. Michigan is surrounded on three sides by the Great Lakes. The second X had to travel for work. He'd leave, go out of state, and his headaches would clear right up. The second he stepped off the plane, the headaches ... Read more

To all those in California who have posted they're safe, I'm very glad to see it! I used to live in California in the 50's and 60's. I've felt earthquakes, and know how very scary they can be. I've even been through two of them here in Michigan.... Read more

Need Help in Arizona I'm sorry to have been silent for so long. We've been sick the last couple of weeks, and it culminated last night with having to take SweetieOfStar to the V.A. hospital. He's okay and back at home. But . . . I just... Read more
Gardening sore
Thursday, May 16, 2019      7 comments

Ow . . . I went outside and used the large "loppers" to get some of the grape vines away from the front windows and off my bushes. Oh, my. They're lighter weight and made for people with arthritis (easier to use). It's been so long since I've do... Read more

I was able to get outside for a short time today. There were two stinging nettles beside my front door. Were. There's still one more. Vines are growing on the bushes outside my front windows. And it looks as if there are trees trying to grow in ... Read more

Loss Day?
Saturday, May 11, 2019      6 comments

Today was pretty awesome. We were able to get out and pick up a small package at a Walmart that was about 9 miles from the house (it was the only store I could find that carried it). This Walmart was something else! I went in the front door, and... Read more

Reevaluating my goals
Thursday, December 20, 2018      5 comments

I am, by nature, one who obsesses. I think and rethink and hash it over until it's way overdone! But all-in-all, I haven't set any specific steps for my goals. I went to a free webinar just a couple of days ago. As many great articles as I've ... Read more
