Each morning, for the past 12 years, I have pulled back three sets of curtains from my bedroom windows, and have looked across at the garden that Wayne and Debbie built. I’ve watched as they’ve tended it, from one season to the next. We’ve waved to each other as we leave our driveways. I’ve witnessed the changing seasons unfold in front of me with colorful … Continue reading In Memory of Wayne
Raspberry seed stuck in my teeth. Driving me crazy. No floss handy (which is not like me), so I thought, “Hair. Yes, a strand of hair will work just as well.” You know what doesn’t work just as well?

He paused before answering. “Feathers.” “Feathers?” I responded, but stopped my voice just before it raised into a question. I didn’t want to know any more.

I only clarify this for the smartasses who will undoubtedly comment. Too awake to fall asleep, I turn on one of my favorite go-to’s, a Warren … Continue reading I’m Sorry Mr Hurt
The largest collection of people with questionable parking skills clearly held a convention in Houston this week.

Those asshats deserved it!) Houston lacks drainage. Drainage wouldn’t help fix the larger problem of crappy drivers. Traffic … Continue reading Tales From The Road
Two days ago I flew to New York. This is nothing new. I don’t live here, but I visit. It’s my happy place. I was happy that I had enough points to book a flight. I was happy (and grateful) that a friend offered up her apartment for my stay. I am happy (and grateful) that I have an understanding boss and a hard-working Assistant … Continue reading The Downside of Happy
I am just one crappy day away from becoming a picture on the side of a milk carton. Continue reading Have You Seen Her?
