A to Z Challenge: M is for Miles

I picked up the gal pal from the airport last night. She spent twenty hours flying home. So immediately bright and early this morning we packed the car and drove hundreds of miles to spend time with family. Well, actually, I drove several hundred of miles while she slept. In total, the gal pal traveled…

A to Z Challenge: L is for Laughter

I love to laugh. I’ll admit, I embody a twisted sense of humor. I laugh at inappropriate times and when the humor is obvious. I don’t have much time this evening so I’m pasting a few images that make me chuckle, no matter how many times I see them. Enjoy!

A to Z Challenge: G is for Guilt

Guilt, I believe, is one of the most destructive feelings a person can experience. I don’t know if I’ve experienced more guilt than the average person but I do distinctly remember my grandmother telling me “to put your guilt in your pocket.” I can’t recall the events that led up to my grandmother departing those…
