Here I Am – or not.

I am the girl that people forget. . Those around me are remembered. But usually, not me. When I expressed my concern to an ever-popular friend, she told me that my looks and qualities remind her of “the girl next door.” Yeah, the girl next […]

20 Years Beyond Hope

My mom and I wore cowboy boots and held hands whilst we walked down the makeshift wedding aisle. Friends and family stood next to tan metal folding chairs and the August sun shone so bright that lots of guests wore sunglasses. Most invitees wore shorts, and besides […]

(Farting) Dog Daze of June

I cannot remember the older, larger dog’s history of why he was at the pound, but that’s where we got him some 7 years ago. He was older than a tiny pup at 4 months old, but immediately he belonged to my then 4-year-old son. And the […]

(Profs, Pups & Pedigrees) Dog Daze of June

A Light Shining (finally!)

A Light Shining (finally!)

My review of sir Glynn Young’s second novel, A Light Shining, (sequel to Dancing Priest) is long overdue, past due; in fact, this detestable delay has caused all sorts of fines and notices to fill my in-box. Actually, that last bit doesn’t hold the least bit […]

Today I am hanging out with friends over at the BibleDude’s place. Come on over to read my bit o’ rambling, if’n a like. . . When we are in the muddy middle of challenges, we don’t necessarily see ‘em as chances to roll up […]

Montana’s Rising Son

Montana’s Rising Son

. I’m not sure if it’s the smell of breakfast, or the pig beating that’s taking place, or the old lady hollering in the kitchen that woke me. Either way, I pull on yesterday’s dirty t-shirt and socks and climb out my window, boots in […]
