You know how I love to dance. Join Danny and I in a little Irish Jig!
Here are a few of my own Irish blessings
May you straighten out life’s learning curve, leaving in a few twists for luck.
May your name always be followed with a smile and not a curse.
May you laugh at yourself with others or if not at yourself than at others and hope they can laugh at themselves with you.
May your door always be open to your friends and closed to your enemies with a window nearby just in case.
May someone always catch you when you fall, pick you up when you are down and kick you in the behind if you wallow in the mud.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
How are you celebrating this year?
Frolicking in the snow last year.

Are you feeling it yet? That creepy spine tingling shiver that crawls up your back leaving your little hairs all electrified? Are you seeing shadowy figures in the dark corners of your house? Do they vanish as you gasp while swinging around towards the entity? Well, I am here to get you in the mood. For what? HALLOWEEN! Continue reading
After all the begging, pleading, and licking, I caved. No, I didn’t run out and buy those fancylike hiking shoes even though Roxy has been lusting for them. She still LOVES her Ghetto Mittens.
She wouldn’t take no for an answer, so I gave in and made another movie. Continue reading

While typing away in my little corner of the sunroom, my dog Roxy started a barking fit in the garage. I assumed the door was wide open and a bird had flown in. Have you ever noticed that an entire wall can be open, but a bird will insist on trying to fly through a closed window?
Roxy only barks at animals. This is not helpful to me since it is unlikely that I will be taken down by a rabid squirrel. At 15 pounds soaking wet, I wouldn’t expect her to be much protection, but she could at least bark a warning when a human enters the yard. Instead, I have looked up from my computer to find her playing with a neighborhood landscaper.
When her tirade didn’t end, I shut my laptop and ran to the garage. Continue reading
When you have an opportunity to make a wish, does one pop into your head or do you have to think for a minute or two?
A wish is a hope or desire and I have had my share, but I’m really careful what I wish since so many have come true. I take a little time to consider how it could change my life. My guess is that most people wish to be rich and famous or to return to good health. There couldn’t possibly be anything wrong with good health, but money and fame have been known to cause some problems. Continue reading
You never know what you might see in your own backyard, especially if you live in Colorado. While growing up in Wisconsin, I never once set eyes on a hot air balloon. The abundance of trees and lakes make cloud hopping too risky. My only experience with them was in the movie, The Wizard of Oz. Continue reading
James hid it under a log hoping to forget, but the memory taunted him. He returned to work as if nothing had happened, but that cawing crow; it never left him alone. He could hear its call while he moved boxes in the warehouse. It glared with its beady yellow eye when he left the building. He cringed at the sight of its long haggard wings racing him home.
