On Kissing Boys…….

Remember your first kiss?  Paul G. our neighbor’s son who lived up the road, kissed me in his parents barn when I was 12 years old.  I ran home, got in my closet, called my best friend and promptly gave her all the gory details.  It was gross and grand all at the same time, my life would…

Wicked Walk

I don’t know about you people but this summer has flown by for me and mine, I can hardly believe that fall is merely 6 weeks away and I’ve seen more cool weather this month than any October the past 30 years!  Craziness, so my walk August 13th was another one blessed by pleasant weather,…

Wicked Walk

August in Texas is almost always horrid, hot and unbearably sweaty.  So of course, this is the week Addie insisted on walking with me.  Therefore Wednesday, August 6th 2014 was a short jaunt to the train trestle and back. Here is what I saw. A cute human in shorts, a Hello Kitty! shirt toting a turkey…
