A Memorial Day Visit…


A visit to small town Welker Cemetery in Coffee County, TN where many of my husband’s family are buried.  So many veterans of World War II and the Korean and Vietnam era conflicts are buried here.  My father-in-law was a veteran of the U.S. Navy during World War II.

It’s a sad reminder that freedom isn’t free.  Sending out a huge thank you to the men and women who serve and have served our country.  We are forever grateful…

Yay, Yay, it’s Friday…

Road tripping south to hubby’s family get together for the weekend.  I’ll be posting and checking the blog less, but thinking about all y’all!

Envy…A Limerick


Donald and Hillary jealously play the game

Polls say people dislike them just about the same

I don’t envy their chosen path

The incurring of everyone’s wrath

While working hard to avoid any blame…

In response to Mind and Life Matters’ Limerick Poetry Challenge, Envy.

Cajun Shrimp…


My pedicure today.  Hubby says red, but I think it’s pretty obvious the color is OPI Cajun Shrimp…a spicy coral shade that will look even better with a tan!  Cute sandals, too, right?

I think I like it, had to choose a new color because salon did not have my favorite called My Chihuahua Bites.  DDIL chose Fearlessly Alice, a medium blue, with a silver and blue glitter topcoat, from the OPI Through the Looking Glass Collection.

My dream job would be naming new OPI nail polishes.  I don’t think that’s asking too much… 🙂
