Funny Story: My mom & my daughter

Twenty years ago today my mom was called over into glory after a 1 month battle with Pancreatic Cancer. I think she knew she was sick before that but being the strong little (5’1″) woman she was, she never went to the doctor. My precious father served in the Air Force for 27 years so […]

More Confetti Please!

Thanks for stopping by. I’m so glad you’re here. At last. (gentle sigh) Have been feeling a call to “blog” for some time but the task seemed too difficult. Now that I’m here I see it’s not so hard after all. Oh wait. Don’t know what to write about. That could make things difficult. Nah. […]
