Beauty Tip #1

Friends,  I have been absent for about a week or so now.  You have just experienced how I roll.  ADHD....hyperfocus.  I have been consumed with staining my intricate deck that was dry beyond believe and spray painting my patio furniture red.  Oh, yes....and the birds.  Wait till you hear this one (another day).  I can assure you, however, that I was talking to ya'll (see how TEXAS I am now) in my mind as I was working.

Here is an important beauty tip I discovered this morning.  NEVER…

Life and Death in Suburbia

Check out this repulsive thing I spotted right next to the sidewalk.

That, my friends, is a dead Armadillo.  Lying suspiciously close to where I spotted that ghastly buzzard-thing the other day.

My husband is so patient with me.  I actually stopped the car in the middle of traffic and jumped…

Special Needs Adaptive Equipment

Special Needs Adaptive Equipment

This post is a follow-up to my Ice Breaker post dated March 20, 2017.  I have acquired some equipment that I have found particularly useful in combating some of my problems.  The two I am sharing today are my special watch and my hideous luggage rack.

I’m starting with my luggage rack because this will be quick and obvious when you see the photo.  About a month ago my husband and I bought a different vehicle.  It has a hideous luggage rack on…

I Gotta Step Over Your Bird Shit To Get To My Bird Stuff

Back when I was a fancy professional, kind of, with an office of my own, I had that place decorated with birds.  Lots of birds everywhere.  I didn’t really intend it to be so, it just happened.  I hadn’t even really noticed it until someone walked in one day and commented on my love of birds.  That comment gave me pause and I looked around.  It did appear as if I were a bird lover from way back.   Birds on the walls, bird figurines, birds my sister made, birds I made, birds students made for…

Virgin Estate Sale Rat

I'm not gonna lie.  I felt very weird and voyeuristic entering that gentleman's home and watching all those homo sapiens paw through his personal belongings.  Aside from the obvious rapaciousness, I think it was disconcerting because he was a III, not Sr., not Jr.  But the third, and last, in his line.  He left no children, he does not appear to have ever married or partnered and he has no siblings. His obituary indicates that he is survived by "a host of friends and several cousins." He was…

Ice Breaker

I wrote the following post (heretofore only published in my head) on May 6, 2015.  I know it is WAY too long and really only fit for skimming.  I was going to try and cut it down a little (I DID remove a couple of "ands"), but I feel it is a nice representation of the kind of person I am...wordy, scattered, spastic, sweaty and hugely entertaining to myself.  So here you have it. 

After having re-read this just now, I'm a little worried that my post may…
