Have friends will travel

Traveling with friends can be risky move! It's only my opinion but I think it takes a special kind of chemistry to travel with friends, and all of the little ones and teenagers in tow! But, thanks to Mr. Chicken Fry and his 27 year friendship with these guys...our family vacation hit the MARK! Once upon… Continue reading Have friends will travel

Redundancy

Redundant is such a fun word to say.  My lips like the way it rolls off of the tongue and bounces around ending with a sharp T. I also very much appreciate the meaning. Enough is enough! Superfluous banter is overrated! Unless you are a mother, parent, educator, coach, or personal trainer! This is my… Continue reading Redundancy

It's not our fault.

Winter WINE-ing

Who's ready for SPRING? I'm already channeling warmer weather,  flip-flops and tan lines. Winter is sooo hard! I become calloused for motivation.  Getting out of bed for work on the cold, rainy, dismal winter days is worse than domestic manual labor. I literally have to pep talk myself to toss back the covers and wake… Continue reading Winter WINE-ing

Well-Rounded

This wasn't exactly an ideal hallmark for an impressionable female teenager. "Well - Rounded" really? The picture above would sure speak to a well rounded head of hairsprayed hair that's for  certain.  But like hairstyles, trends change. Let's remember that I was a prodigy of the 70's, when hippie chic "skinny" girls graced the Copper Tone… Continue reading Well-Rounded
