I haven't posted anything new here for about six months. (Have you missed me?) It wasn't my choice. I was unable to bring up the page for writing a new blog post. WordPress gave me suggestions to try, which I did, but nothing worked. It was so frustrating, and I eventually gave up. I went … Continue reading Oh My Goodness! Looking Back. Going Forward.
We can start with pretty pictures, like the top photo of two pink rain lilies. These flowers pop up intermittently after a good shower. Zephyranthes grandiflora are small bulbs that are easy to forget about, but they’re a wonderful surprise when they show up. I’ve never planted cleome (cleome hassleriana) before, and at first, I … Continue reading SIX ON SATURDAY: Slugfest and More

It may be disconcerting sometimes, but nothing stays the same in this world. Get used to it. I’m sure you can quickly rattle off many … Continue reading Ch Ch Changes (apologies to David Bowie)
You’d think by now I would stop asking, “Why?” “Why did they do that? What were they thinking?” After living this much life, you’d think I might stop being surprised. As I sat in a large waiting room last week, my Judgment Meter was registering in the red zone. We were there for over an … Continue reading We’re Dang Near Royalty
I thought it was what I wanted, and there it was under the Christmas tree in 1965. I opened the black cardboard-ish case and proudly took out that Silvertone flat-top acoustic. $19.95 from Sears. I was a twelve-year-old girl who loved listening to the radio, and I wanted to play all those songs on the … Continue reading Sears Silvertone Guitar
