Love love this song!

What I am watching

I’ve discovered a fabulous new series, The Durrells in Corfu.  This British comedy/drama is a delightful Masterpiece Theater piece based on the Corfu trilogy by Gerald Durrell. This show is adapted from his autobiographical books about his family’s four years spent on the Greek island of Corfu in the late 1930’s.

The cinematography is rich, the characters just quirky enough, and the acting spectacular. It makes you believe anyone can pick up anywhere, anytime and make a life in Greece.

Well written. A definite 5 stars!

Happy Memorial Day






Have a fabulous weekend . . .



Hello boys . . .

In the words of the immortal Russell Casse (Dennis Quaid) in Independence Day: 

I took a little hiatus from the blog but am now ready to be a bit more social. We moved to the country and are homesteading with chickens, a large garden, two dogs, and a cat.

We love it out here, despite the distance to stores. We never really wanted to go “off grid”so I made sure Amazon delivered.Unknown.jpeg

I like a more self sufficient lifestyle but, hey . . . let’s get real.


It’s taken me a couple of years to get the garden up and running and learning how to keep out new sets of predators with our chickens. We have a nice bit of acreage in the back complete with coyotes, possums, raccoons, snakes, and a bobcat or two roaming the creek. The snakes don’t worry me because they keep the rat population down, but trust me, the raccoons are not as witty as Rocket in Guardians of the Galaxy . . .


and they get really, really snarly when you’ve got them cornered in a trap.

I’ve been working on family history, gardening, crocheting, and of course . . . Writing! 

I just finished a nonfiction book and have started submitting to publishers. I’ll let you know when that is available but be patient. It takes time!

Here is the link to an article that was published in the Houston Chronicle back in December. 

I encourage you to like my Facebook author’s page. Puns galore! I’m always amazed that there seems to be an unlimited supply in the world. They are my catnip.
