Mysterious Events…

Can you identify this item? For some, it’s going to be a snap; others may think this is some strange relic, or perhaps even a hoax, not a real thing at all, sort of like Bigfoot. Make no mistake, it’s very real and it’s very scary. Sometimes, it’s even infuriating. I found this specimen in…

Finding Inspiration…

I’ve been reading a fabulous blog written by a woman whom I will come right out and say makes me envious! She’s a beautiful lady, married to an incredibly sexy looking man (and obviously deeply in love), and they’ve produced a quartet of incredibly cute children. Okay, so what, right? Well, she can also cook,…

The Mind of a Predator – III

(finally adding this installment to this blog… This entire series was originally done elsewhere, but I felt it warranted repeating here.) Alright, here we go – the last in this series, and in many ways, the easiest, yet in others, the hardest. It’s also the LONGEST! I have shared my history, and how I was…

It’s Howl-o-ween!

It’s Halloween time, my second, really, since leaving my ex – and I’m enjoying it. The first year, I was still in shock, still sort of dazed. I managed to buy candy just in case there were Trick or Treaters (there was one) and other then that, I did no decorating, nothing. The kids go…

Today, I am wearing blue….

I don’t really know what other color to call it, though on a good day, I may count myself as an artist with words, I am not as skilled with paint, and colors and the like. Perhaps, I think, perhaps it’s Robin’s Egg – that bright color that makes me think of Spring. But no,…

Because it’s fun … and I can…

On a somewhat lighter note than yesterday… Thanks to the divorce-from-hell finally being over, I can now take my munchkins outside the county without written permission from their father – something that rates a difficulty level along the lines of having the Pope declare homosexual marriage a blessed sacrament, sanctified and happily performed by all…

It was a windy day in the desert….

My selection of pics of the following event are mercifully few, this one was a few Thanskgivings later, in Bad Water Basin – Death Valley, and that’s my lovely daughter GEC, on another windy desert day. The other pics below are of the park where we camped that fateful Thanksgiving. It is beautiful! It’s funny,…
