Christmas Busyness…& Cookies!

Lucy has been at my iPad more than I have been lately. Writing my blog has taken a backseat to the hustle- bustle of Christmas shopping and spending time with family and friends.  Plus, it probably wasn’t a wise move to clean the keyboard with a cotton ball soaking wet with alcohol. Rubbing alcohol! Likewise,… Continue reading Christmas Busyness…& Cookies!

For the Love of Sonny!

We all know pets contribute to our happiness. The unconditional love of a dog greeting you upon your arrival home feels like a million bucks. But, would you give up your pet for its happiness? My friend did just that… About a year after I’d made my acquaintance with Helen, she asked for a small… Continue reading For the Love of Sonny!

Cheetah meets Bulldog!

This is a tale from long ago—the summer of 1977—when I was a teenager with little worries. When money earned went towards rock concerts, concert T-shirts and movies.

Now, it appeared construction lay ahead. “Giselle, whatever you do on your test, don’t do what I… Continue reading Conquering The Road!

Changing My Viewpoint!

– It was love at first sight. But, I dared not come on too strong. Don’t be the first to hug or kiss. Take it slow. Let things take their natural course. Whatever would be, would be. I played things right. The object of my love was a sweet two and half-year old girl. She… Continue reading Changing My Viewpoint!

Rock On!

“Wait a second, that wasn’t there a few hours ago…what’s going on?” I was puzzled. I had snapped a few photos along the waterfront in the morning. When an opportunity arose, I returned to the riverfront in the afternoon with a different lens. No matter way for me to kill time than to take photos!… Continue reading Rock On!
