              Well you guys sure have some tales to tell, but I have a real doozie.  Al and I were running interstate last year, and had just parked the trailer at the Mississippi terminal. When Al checked in, the boss told him that the trailer we were to haul was loaded and ready to go but there...

          I hate the automatic checkout scanners at the supermarket. Being a senior citizen, I have seen a lot of change in the world, but this is one change I can do without.

It is easier to sleep in on weekends, it is a good time to work on projects such as sewing, reading, and writing.  It is a time to eat winter food, such as stews, soups, and...

Landen at 8 months
Being a grandmother is neat. Now I am watching my grandson, Landen, three days a week while my daughter-in-law works. At first I thought, "piece of cake," after all I raised my son. But how quickly we forget all of the work it takes to strap a nine-month-old in to the car seat, then set...

I wanted to share a very upsetting experience I had submitting a query letter to River's Bend Press in MN. I sent them a query about a book that I have written exploring a - yet to be reported aspect - of the Holocaust. I received my letter back with 'LOL' written in black bold marker across the...

My son after he graduated boot camp
This is my first attempt at writing a blog. My good friend Darlene Arden keeps telling me that I have to learn to do this sort of stuff. I am old school and not into all of the new technology, so here it goes. Within the next month I will become a first-time grandmother. It reminds me of when my...
