SEC's QUIRKY POST

SEC, you reminded me of a little story about my son.  I may have posted this before; if so, I apologize and you may write it off to old age.   We lived in Texas and all the grandparents, etc. lived in Indiana.  We had visited Hubby's family much...

NO MORE COOKING BLOG, BUT ...

I realize William's cooking blog is no more, but still I feel the need to put this out there.  It's my very own recipe because I couldn't find one I liked!  It took me about a dozen tries to get it just the way I wanted it.   JEANNIE'S POTATO...

AN UNWELCOME ATTIC TENNANT

We have a tiny resident squirrel.  He's not much bigger than a chipmunk - we have those, too - but he's only 1/4 the size of our full-sized squirrels.  The little guy is quite red, so I guess he's a red squirrel!  He's absolutely adorable and we love...

Ugh

I really should be in the kitchen gazing in the freezer, trying to decide what to have for lunch.  This is me, not moving.  Failing that, I should be working on the latest book.  Again, me not working.  Why not?  I dunno.  This is just an ugh-ish day,...

More Info

Got another email from the organizers of the Block Party.  It seems the authors will have what is described as "four tents" which I'm hoping means four big awnings or something like that.  We are to have tables and chairs and NAME TAGS!  Now, that's...

An older couple had just gotten cell phones learned how to text.  They were proof that opposites attract, she being very romantic and he being very pragmatic.   One day, the wife went to lunch with a friend.  While out, she decided to text her...

Buyer's Remorse

In an uncharacteristic fit of optimism, I ordered several of my books to take to the writer's booth at the block party.  In the first order, I sent for two copies each of the first three books and one each of the other three, for a total of nine. ...

I MAY HAVE EXAGGERATED.

All I said about my colonoscopy was that everything was fine and there was nothing except a couple of polyps.  The last part is true, at least.  Just a couple of polyps.  But what happened to me during and after the colonoscopy was something else...

Be careful what you wish for!

Okay, dear ones, I'm in the writer's booth at the Noble County All-In Block Party on June 25 from 10:00am until 3:00pm.  I've even bought a few of my books on the off chance that some poor fool will actually buy one!  Wouldn't that be a hoot and a...

ISN'T SHE LOVELY? (A story by Bettymom)

Brad had waited many years for this moment.  He knew she would be perfect even though he had never seen her or met her.  They had been corresponding for several months and he had been begging her to come to him for a visit.  Their little computer...
