We went to Jackson last weekend to go out to eat; Don took me out and [...]

I love to watch and was glad when they finally got around to “real” singing! But none of the guys really blew me away last night, so disappointing. And I want Chris Sligh to do so well but he’ll have to step it up. Phil Stacey [...]

What’s in a name?
I’ve been called by my middle name my whole life, wasn’t too much of a problem growing up (except for disliking both my names!). It was only a slight problem after I married but I got my social security card changed and went [...]

Lots of little things rolling around in my head but nothing I can really get into to write about; lots of jumbled up thoughts with no direction! So this post will take many different turns……ever have days like that?
It’s been raining again and I think that makes me feel dreary sometimes and [...]
