While everyone else looked up in the sky, I looked down and made an amazing discovery. When I learned the total eclipse could be experienced by traveling for under three hours to Wyoming, I mapped it out. Predicted traffic woes changed my view. I decided to stay in my own backyard. Experts explained that even with... Continue Reading →
I'm back from my Epic Road Trip. There were a couple of California signs I had to share. You'd never see this on a telephone pole in Boulder. Read it carefully. I don't want you to hurt the poor little guy or gal. Don't you think toucan bird is redundant or am I missing something?... Continue Reading →
We hosted our two children, my son's girlfriend and four dogs for Father's Day. After a hike at Brainard Lake, they deserved a treat. Can you give this photo a caption? They're begging for one.
The first Sunday in June is National Cancer Survivor Day. I first heard about it through Facebook when Lynn Kelley posted a photo from a get-together in California. August McLaughlin “embellished” this photo when I had a double boobectomy (mastectomies) in 2013. Lynn Kelley, me, Debra Eve, August McLaughlin, and Debra Kristi. Four thoughts hit me...

A humorous look at how March came in like a lamb, but became monstrous, bringing tons of snow to Colorado.
My Facebook page blew up with comments after I shared an article written for The Guardian by Ros Barber entitled, “For me traditional publishing means poverty, but self-publishing? No way.” Whoa! She believes that making a living as a writer is almost impossible when being traditionally published since authors receive such a low percentage on... Continue Reading →
Life can be ironic. I was just thinking about the correlation between dancing and blog views. Then this photo challenge appeared. Really! I've snow danced, rain danced and dance bombed. I've danced after finishing my handmade Christmas cards and before Polar Plunging. I've danced on New Year's Eve and at Two Jews and a Blonde. Then... Continue Reading →
If you let your subconscious take over, it will do a better job of creating conflict and writing a book.
I am all about spreading the love... ...like this art project on my ceiling. I painted the angels to set a welcoming tone in my house even though you would have to strain to hear their horns. Lots of love up there, don't you think? I love old family photos: I love joking around and... Continue Reading →
