"Uh, no... I tried JJ, but that is a seriously biased question along the lines of "When did you stop beating your wife?"   The reason I disagree with it is that we used to live in a city that made it illegal to smoke in public and it…"

Open Call, to the Flounce!

Posted on December 3, 2017 at 6:21am 17 Comments

Woo hoo!  I can do this. 

Lorianne, has it really been since 2010? 

Seven years, ...damn.

That's a good run, it really is. 

...and now, it's winding down. 

Some have gone to the face boo, some to the twitter, and the instagram, and other web blogs.  We have some in our email.  Some have died, and some have simply gone off line.  Hard to quit a drug like this, though.  Especially after 20 years.   I kinda like this nic name of Julie Johnson, made it…

Total eclipse of the sun

For months now, I've been thinking ...oh, 99% that's pretty close, close enough anyway.  

Right?  

I'm not so sure now. I've been doing my googling and 'they' are saying, just that one percent makes the difference between interesting and totally awe inspiring.  Life changing, even.…

Is happening, right now.  Has been decided, but I just don't know.  There's the elections, the protesting going on where I grew up, and then my oldest son. 

I've typed and deleted, and typed and deleted, typed and deleted every morning now, for the last 4 months.  Here, there, everywhere.  It's out there.  An hour every morning, to where I almost feel like I could do this as a 'job'. It's damn sure not 'art'.

Hi,

I found a letter written by Hunter S Thompson, before he became famous, on how to find your purpose. It's a brilliant letter that he wrote to a friend on his personal life philosophy and I've linked it at the end of my bog. I hope you go back to read it.

I also just realized that we haven't friended here so I sent you a request.

Phyllis
