Where The Streets Have No Name
Published on Thursday, November 27, 2014 by I'm going to tell on myself.  I went through the entire month thinking the November Photo Challenge was "A Road to Nowhere."  Boy did I have some good shots, thanks to my daughter.  Her ideas included cigarettes, bullying, judging and money.  It wasn't until yesterday that I saw the REAL theme is "where the streets have no name."   Yup, that's how I generally ro...
From Norman Reedus To No Toot
Published on Thursday, November 20, 2014 by I use my iPhone for pictures constantly.  It is my brain for reminders, it is my tool at work and it is my "oh my gosh I can't believe I just saw that" camera.  Sometimes I have to flip through all my pictures to remove the junk.  Quick screen shots, reminders and pictures I shared that I don't need to keep.  My iPhone pictures aren't much unlike my brain.  Rando...
You Become Responsible for What You’ve Tamed
Published on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 by It began years ago in Corolla with Hotdog Kitty. There are many feral cats in the Outer Banks, and this orange cat was one of them. We threw a hot dog down to him and he raced to it, quickly dragging it behind him in to the bushes. From that day on he was called, “Hot Dog Kitty.” One of his descendants, another orange and tan cat, seemed to be a bit tamer. One of...
Just Call Me Bob.  Bob Ross, That Is.
Published on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 by She called me out on it, so I had to do it. I mean, I had promised, after all. “Do you want to go to a Pub Painters event some time?” “Surrrrrreeee!” Then came the text. “November 4th! Here is the painting! Let’s sign up!” Ummmm…. What? Me? Strangers? No kids? Girl night? PAINTING?!!? I CAN’T EVEN DRAW A STRAIGHT LINE! This is how it works. You ch...
Photographer’s Choice!
Published on Thursday, October 30, 2014 by This month’s A ‘Lilhoohaa photo challenge was Photographer’s Choice. When I heard this, my first thought was “Faces.” Ugh. I don’t know why I chose that. NO ONE wants to have a picture of their face. At least no one that I know. Which worked with the whole “challenge” thing. So I went with it!  1.  Our area is filled with mermaids that were painted...
Spinning in Circles
Published on Thursday, October 23, 2014 by Where does the time go? These last few weeks have found me running in circles, finding little time to write. Not that things have been bad. Sure, there is plenty of stress. Kids overwhelmed with school and college, money worries, accident pain and everything else. But there is also good. I’ve got all three kids under the same roof again. The weather and ocean st...
MEXICAN JUMPING BEANS!
Published on Wednesday, October 8, 2014 by I shrieked when I saw them. “MEXICAN JUMPING BEANS! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!” The cashier at Five Below replied, “EVERYONE says that!” The last time I held Mexican Jumping Beans in my hand was in second grade in California. It was like stepping in to the past. I was literally holding something in my hand from a lifetime ago. What makes a Mexican jumping bean ...
It’s Not All Black And White!
Published on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 by This month’s photo challenge theme was “Black and White.” I began by taking pictures of things that were black and white. And then I remembered my camera has a black and white setting. Something I never think to use. This challenge gave me a new perspective on how I can capture images in a completely different way. I never would have thought to take black and...
Why I’m Not Getting an iPhone 6
Published on Thursday, September 25, 2014 by I was always an Android kind of person. Apple people were a bit hoity-toity as far as I was concerned. They had money, music and white earbuds. ISheep, they call them. But you know what else they had? Phones that held up over time. I was three Samsungs in and each died after a year and a half. So I caved and got myself a free iPhone 5 and never looked back. Sure e...
Bathroom Spiders
Published on Friday, September 19, 2014 by My son’s first nightmare was about spiders. I heard his little cry, causing me to race out of bed and in to his room. “The spiders are getting me! The spiders are getting me!” My little guy had woken up in the middle of a nightmare in which spiders were crawling all over his body. Fast forward many years. This boy can gut a deer, shoot better than most and woul...
September 2014 Corolla Fire
Published on Wednesday, September 10, 2014 by I was on the last three pages of my book when I heard commotion behind me on the beach. I turned to see people gathering on the top of the stairs. And then I saw the smoke billowing over the dunes. Grabbing my phone I rushed to join them, gasping at a scene that I could have only imagined in my worst nightmares. A house was on fire, right in the middle of our neighbo...
Karma in Corolla
Published on Wednesday, September 3, 2014 by Earlier today I spent an hour typing up a story about Corolla red flags, vacationers who leave their brains at home and about Karma and her friendship with the beautiful ocean. But instead of posting it, I chose to simply blurt my story out. Keep it simple stupid, am I right? Last weekend a father took his two kids in to an amazingly dangerous ocean despite the re...
