I turned 66 Saturday, May 3rd. This house is where I was born. I'm certain it was in better shape back then. And, in 1942 it wasn't uncommon to be born in a house instead of a hospital. This little house is located in the coal-mining comm... Read more

I never dreamed that I'd be anywhere but sitting in a rocker at age 66. Actually, I turn 66 in May, but my dance jersey says 66 because it's the 2008 Seniorgee team. I certainly did not expect to be part of a team that dances before thousa... Read more

Sunday, March 30, 2008      12 comments

My inner Stephen King got the better of me when I sat down to write about the deer that watches me. I have decided that it's best not to shoot it. BLUE's comment, advising me to listen to the deer makes a lot of sense to me. And MOOMMAMA... Read more

It was a snow day, a day off from classes and appointments. The crock pot was loaded and starting to smell good. The cats, Piney and Bugsy, were fed. Morning household chores were done. I sat blissfully alone, coffee mug in hand, looking out... Read more

Now, we get to see what a PLATEAU looks like! Here's the evidence of my plateau. As an experiment, I began weighing daily two weeks ago to see what was going on in relation to what I eat and the exercise I do. During that time I h... Read more

Saturday, March 15, 2008      10 comments

Yesterday my car key broke off in my hand. So, until I located the spare key, I was going nowhere. That's the thing about keys. They will unlock doors and provide the SPARK to ignite an engine. But if your old key is broken, you must find a ... Read more

This picture is what a healthy lifestyle looks like to me. I'm the blonde one who looks like Moe from the old Three Stooges movies. I like the picture because it shows my absolute joy! The picture was taken at a Milwaukee Bucks game Nov... Read more
50 Ways To Leave Your Lover
Wednesday, February 27, 2008      16 comments

A friend said she wouldn't have pegged me as a procrastinator. I wouldn't have either because I have already come a long way toward being that organized person who finds it harder to put something off than it is to just "git 'er done." My ... Read more
Putting Off My Book About Procrastination
Wednesday, February 20, 2008      17 comments

I'm a sicko when it comes to procrastination! (Read all the way to the very end. I had a breakthrough.) I run off at the mouth on my friends' blogs and never get to my own. I see an interesting Message Board and I'm off to the races. A... Read more
