Diana Gabaldon at Surrey

If you are sensitive or politically correct, read no further. I’m neither sensitive nor politically correct. I have a horribly warped sense of humor. I’m not mean to people, but I do find the humor in most situations. I alluded to this in the Elves Between My Knees story. There’s a reason Beth hauled me […]

Logan James

Katie sent Will a picture to Iraq. He sent it back to me and I am sending it out to all of you. He looks so much like his daddy. It just melts my heart.

Christmas Wish List 2008

Don complained for years I was horrible to buy anything for because I am so hard to please. This always astounded me because I truly appreciate anything anyone does for me. The only gift I ever took back was a periwinkle blue suit he bought me to wear to church. The skirt was a box […]

Santa Was A Cowboy

I’ve been thinking a lot about people lately. I’m basically a happy person. I look for the best in people and I can usually find something to laugh about. Even though I like to believe the best in people, life has taught me that will often cause great heartache. I can accept that when it […]

Bag Lady

I like to think of life as an adventure. My writer’s mind is always watching and taking notes. Some things I observe can easily be translated into prose. Other things are so odd, I have no idea how they would ever be used, but I file them away anyway, just in case. I’ve been using […]

Janet Reid…

I don’t know what to say, except I think someone sent her a huge store of Scotch and she’s been celebrating a bit early. No vacation for Miss Janet. I know what this is. It’s a test. I almost didn’t pass. I may still not pass. Please send thoughts of strength my way. Sooooooo, tempted […]

Surrey Saturday Morning

Surrey Saturday Morning. You thought I forgot where I was, didn’t you? I scarfed down my Frosted Flakes (thank you Lisa for the variety pack) and we zoomed down to the café to meet the gals. Well, I did. Lisa had to be at her table bright and early so she took her protein bars […]

Letters on the Wind-1

Potpourri tonight while I bake cookies for Will. Letter from Will. No, I still haven’t had time to set up Letters In The Wind for the journal. Hey mom. love u. I guess it sent it to your other email. I think it was saved and used it. Well things are goin good we’re rollin […]

Digital Frame Help Needed

Time is running out and I need to get these frames bought. I decided to buy all the boys, and probably Don, digital frames for Christmas. I have most of the family photos that have survived, so rather than try to get all these reprinted I am going to scan them onto cards and give […]
