Domestic Pets

Domestic Pets

Most people in residential areas have cats, dogs, or birds. My son has a dog, a rabbit, and now, what he calls a miniature pig! In reading an article in National Geographic, it is clear that there are no permanently miniature pigs! They are little and cute, but can...
Open the Churches!

Open the Churches!

One of the things that was hardest during the pandemic, was to be told our churches had to be shut down. Mental illness, suicide, and other things doubled and tripled. Especially hard to hear was suicides in children under the age of 12! At a time when we needed hope...
Zoom Mania

Zoom Mania

For a year we have been locked down, masked, and told we cannot meet indoors for church or any other meeting. Everyone was ZOOMing and after months of that, I began to grow tired of seeing friends in little squares on my screen instead of in person! I missed the...
Clutter and Hoarding

Clutter and Hoarding

The Best Ideas

Have you every pondered over a solution to a dilemma and searched for answers. Sometimes they come at unexpected times. My publisher said last fall that they didn’t want a proposal for another Biblical Fiction until this spring. The market for Biblical Fiction goes up...
La Vida

La Vida

When I met my husband, he was a retired Navy Commander working for Tracor Marine. He also was the skipper of a 48’ Grand Banks. A beautiful boat that he maintained like it was his own. Charlie, a gentleman from Phoenix who owned three or four lumber companies, owned...
