Saturday Morning Drive

Technically, I’ve taken time off from my Saturday postings to work on my serious writing. But all that means is you can peruse my entire site at your own pace. Cruise through the Music Room, make a pit stop by Poetry, take a leisurely stroll through Brethren Beginnings, and make a stopover at Current Posts. I’ve…

Change is good!

I need a computer directly linked to my brain! I’m doing so much writing, it’s fantastic, but, and there is a but, if I want my writing to be consistent and excellent, then I have to streamline what I’m doing. I’m headed towards editing Trinity, my first novel, I’m blogging here, at Plotmamas, and Daily Dose…

Wednesday Witticisms: Henny Youngman

I grew up listening to Henny Youngman with my parents. He was best known for one-liners that would knock your socks off and playing his violin in between so you could catch your breath. Enjoy! I take my wife everywhere, but she keeps finding her way back. I told the doctor I broke my leg…

I feel successful, yes I do! I feel successful, how ’bout you?

I’m still acting, are you? It’s been a week since I’ve starting acting as though it were impossible to fail, and I feel great! I have a CAN DO attitude and people are catching the wave right along with me. So today, I have gathered a collection of images that will serve to reinforce this…

Wednesday Witticisms: Erma Bombeck

I grew up with my mother and all of her friends reading and talking about Erma Bombeck. Her book, If Life is a Bowl of Cherries, What am I Doing in the Pits?, never left the bathroom for years. It may very well be that she helped groom my sense of humor. Well, her, my mother,…

Gotta Love Chinese Food! Fortune Cookie Says So…

I don’t know what my family loves more, eating Chinese food or getting the fortune at the end. Now we’ve watched the show Unwrapped, and we’ve seen how fortune cookies are made. You would think that the mystique around the cookies would have faded by now, but no! We still get a thrill every time…

Gabriel’s Story… A Dedication

Now that Gabriel’s Story is complete, I look back and realize that the story actually broached a sensitive subject – human trafficking. My eyes were opened recently to this insidious cancer on society with the help of Kay Van Hoesen’s HereWomanTalk.com and Dottie Laster, host of live chat radio show TRAFFICKED. A young woman was rescued…

Wednesday Witticisms: What a life!

Image via Wikipedia   Here are some witticisms that make you go, hmmm. These quotes address the nature of being human and the silliness that is our lives. Enjoy!     Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.   War doesn’t determine who’s right. War determines who’s left.   A train station…

It’s here! Number 7 – Gabriel’s Story ends

                                                                                 {Storm clouds gathered in the early morning sky. Unusual for Arizona since they usually gathered towards evening. Perhaps they were reflecting Gabriel’s thunderous mood as he finished his “business” with Marco deLaGuardia. He had completed that task successfully, but he felt no sense of joy. Satisfaction, yes. Joy, no. If there weren’t scum like Marco on this…

Perspectives…yours, mine, and ours

Look at this picture and tell me what you see. There’s a couple in conflict, right? So who started it? Who is responsible? Who said something that hurt the other? Who was wronged? Each of us can look at this picture and come up with a different story. One could make a valid argument that looking at the…

Wednesday Witticisms: Bill Cosby

Image by djwudi via Flickr  Bill Cosby is a comic genius and seriously, a very intelligent one at that. I must confess. From Fat Albert to The Cosby Show and his hilarious talk with kids and standup routines, he has kept me rolling on the floor. Thanks goes to Brainy Quotes for these today. Enjoy…     1. In order…
