    Shopping Cart Rage--Not

    A rather successful outing today, decent parking, a working cart and plenty of room to move around, and it’s a good thing, as I had a lot to contend with over there this afternoon. Of course it helps enormously that I was in a great mood and I was not in a rush.   The first...

    and my dad has a couple of people from church over so they can talk about fast offerings or something. He's talking to the Bishop, some other guys, and one or two guys my age. I'm tired. I want to take a shower and go to bed rather than listen to people talk about money for...

    Proof That I Am Only Meant to Be a Little Cool and a Little Sexy!

    Okay, I knew there were stories that I could tell on myself for this group.  I am always happy to laugh at myself - I think it is the sign of a good sense of humor to be able to make fun of yourself... This one though is a little embarrassing! Today, I finally decided to...

    Look At That

      I invite you to picture this in your mind. Early one spring morning I had been wakened by sunshine and tempted out into the garden.  Not wishing to wake my husband, just flung on a robe and shoes and out I went for a spot of weeding.  A bit later, feeling chilly, back...

    Especially when the time during my senior year

    of high school. What happened was we were having a field day so we decided to have a sack race. Boy did it go wrong for me. My big feet in a small sack caused me to fall head first twice onto the ground. I even allowed it in the year book so I even laugh today about it.

    that I go without laughing. I'm pretty frank so what I say sometimes can be considered as sarcastic but people often laugh at what I do or say. I also laugh at myself so when people laugh at what I do, I wouldn't mind. Why take life so serious? If I can make someone happy, there...
