Thanks, Cath. I'm glad I'm not the only one who needs to do some landscaping. I'm all for letting it slide for a while, too.

Toni, I think you're my hero. I couldn't do what you've been doing. In CA, we lived in an RV for a year while our house was being restored after an earthquake, and I still remember how much Joe complained about living that small. Your porch sounds heavenly! Good luck with getting Rick to finish your kitchen.

Deb, that sounds heavenly!

Mark, I get that. I remain hopeful when it comes to new plants, but I've killed so many, too.

What a cutie! Congrats on the new baby, and good for you for choosing a rescue.

Thankfully, I had kinder and more biologically-sensitive schools and teachers. At least in this regard. Don't get me started on the way they'd cut hems down if they thought our skirts were too short.

Elaine, you've nailed us bookworms! I'm more likely to have something in the oven than the microwave, but I've burned food there because I forgot about it while reading.

What a beautiful tribute to someone who touched your life!

Catriona, I agree 100%.

Mark, I think you're being too hard on yourself. Your writings always look good. You are right about autocorrect, though; when autocorrect makes some crazy substitution over and over, I want to believe there's someone in my computer just having fun with me. ;)

LOL, Susan! A man after my own heart!

by Kris Neri with the Femmes Fatales I’ll admit it — when I see bad grammar and punctuation online, such as in a Facebook post or a comment to a news story, I long to take a red pen to... Continue reading

A kid in my kindergarten class told me when I was five that Santa Claus wasn't real, which my mother confirmed. When Easter rolled around, I just figured if Santa was a sham, the Big Bunny must have been, too. The only good thing I can say about learning these truths so young was that then I could dictate what I preferred to find in my Easter basket.
Deb, I can see how important that would be to you.

Correction: I can see that light later in the day would benefit some people.

Mark, I can see what light later in the day would benefit some people. I guess there's no way to make us all happy with the light situation.

I work from both ends. Start with the ears, then nibble the feet. But honestly, I'd rather have dark chocolate Dove squares than a bunny.

Beautiful, Marcia! Have lots of great parties there.

Jeanne, I'm glad that worked for you. I'm actively working on watching where I'm going and looking at what's around me. I hope I'm as successful at it as you've been!

My favorite characters have just told me what their names are, and I've gone with that. Otherwise, I have to keep trying names until I find the one that works. It's funny how you know when it's right. I never tried two names before. I think that would confuse me even more.
