Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?
Published on Monday, December 9, 2013 by Katherine
To get away from Katherine!
It wasn’t even two weeks ago when I watched Andrew Zimmern eat and rave about chicken feet. All I remember was the word gelatinous, which doesn’t particularly appeal to me. Yet his full description of this chicken foot experience was intriguing, to say ...
November Photo Challenge: People
Published on Friday, November 29, 2013 by Katherine
Hoohaablog's November photo challenge subject was "People." My favorite thing... stalking and photo taking! Except the more public "people photos" I take, the bolder I become. For some of my November pictures I simply took the shots without sneaking. Fun!
1. This is one of a set o...
And in that Moment, I was Beautiful
Published on Monday, November 25, 2013 by Katherine
With a voice low and soft, he whispered to me words of love, endearment and hope. I could still see his dark eyes, the same ones I looked at 30 years ago. Oblivious to the traffic around me, I remained focused in the past…. breathing quick and shallow breaths.
That was all before 8 ...
The Pumpkin Bus
Published on Wednesday, November 20, 2013 by Katherine
I walked by this scene a few days after Halloween.
At some point over the weekend, these pumpkins were placed at the city bus stop. Or they rolled to it themselves. Either way, they waited all day for their chosen bus. I know because I peeked out of my window several times to chec...
The Watchful Peahen
Published on Monday, November 11, 2013 by Katherine
My thoracic epidural steroid injection was a little more than two hours away. I had twenty minutes to kill before I was expected to drink 16 ounces of Gatorade and partake in some physician prescribed happy pills.
Coincidentally, I was a few yards away from the entrance to an abandoned ...
I’m a Bundle of Nerves
Published on Tuesday, November 5, 2013 by Katherine
*I am interrupting my normally silly, happy and unpredictable blog to spill my guts. Better out than in, I pray.
I’m a bundle of nerves, literally.
It seems the minute I turned the calendar to November 1 my stomach tied in to a knot and refuses to be untied. And trust me everyone...
Signs of Fall
Published on Wednesday, October 30, 2013 by Katherine
I am happy to be participating in A ‘lil Hoohaa’s monthly photo challenge, with October’s theme being “Fall.” We will NOT be discussing how I tried to get a good shot of vanilla tootsie rolls falling, so don’t even ask. And anyway, I ate them all. Quickly. Without guilt...
I am a Stupid B*%&@
Published on Sunday, October 27, 2013 by Katherine
When I was taught how to drive, a red arrow meant stop and do not turn. AT ALL. If you turned on a red arrow, you were making an illegal turn. Period.
So last week I came to a red arrow. Several cars were behind me, waiting for the light to turn green. Except for two women a f...
The Tasty Water Hole
Published on Thursday, October 24, 2013 by Katherine
I drank a cup before I noticed the water jug’s label. First, a bite of sandwich. Then a sip of water. “Hmmmm, the water is a bit stale tasting. Weird.” No matter, I only had a few minutes to chug down my lunch, so chug and sip I did.
It wasn’t until I finished my water tha...
Am I A Bad Mother?
Published on Monday, October 21, 2013 by Katherine
Sometimes when I see an angry sign telling me not to do something, I do it JUST BECAUSE.
"Oh wow look at that sign! Girls! Grab a ball and throw it so I can take a picture!"
So I ask you… if I encourage this bad behavior in my children, am I a bad mother?...

Trust me. Take a step in, but mind the broken glass. Ignore that musty smell and let your eyes adjust to the dark. Now look. No, no. Don’t focus on the trash. Really, really LOOK. For in this decay, you can find beauty.
I saw this antique store in 1980, on my first trip ...
