From Sadness to Stupidity
Published on Friday, September 17, 2010 by Thank you to everyone who has left a comment on my post about Dottie.  I am not going to answer comments on that particular post, simply because I just can't.  But what I can do is thank all of you for giving me virtual hugs, support and a shoulder to cry on.  It means so much. Things are still pretty raw over here.  Not much happiness and too few smiles.  We ...
In Memory of Dottie
Published on Sunday, September 12, 2010 by I haven’t said much over the past few weeks because I wasn’t ready to talk.  Today I need to get it out.  Because today I had to put my puppy to sleep. Before we met her, Dottie was thrown over a pound fence in Georgia.  Half of her fur was gone and she had cuts all over her body.  When I adopted her they drove her all the way to Virginia for us. I dis...
Am I Being Followed?
Published on Saturday, September 11, 2010 by When my mother was packing to leave the beach house on Monday, the renters from the neighboring house stopped her. “Excuse me?  Are you the owner?” “Yes, I am.” “We are early risers.  This morning at about 6 a.m. we saw a reflection on your house that we couldn’t explain.   We took a picture and would like to email it to you.  We looked all a...
Memories of Wild Horses Brought Back To Life
Published on Tuesday, September 7, 2010 by When my parents built the beach house in 1980, there were herds of wild horses roaming the Outer Banks.  These horses were on a Spanish Ship that broke up during a storm long ago.  They made it to shore and soon adapted to the wild life on the beaches of North Carolina. Sadly, our area became populated over the years, bringing cars that flew through the curvy...
Did You Hear The One About Hurricane Earl?
Published on Monday, September 6, 2010 by So here we are in the Outer Banks, a day after Hurricane Earl blew through.  Driving towards our home we saw plenty of side streets covered in water but no apparent damage to homes.  Other than the leaves and branches filling the middle of the road there was very little sign of a recent hurricane. Until we went to the beach!  As soon as we pulled in to the d...
Earl?  Is That You?
Published on Tuesday, August 31, 2010 by Ahhhh, Earl.  Your name rolls off the tip of my tongue like a salt and vinegar cricket.  You are something I really don’t want but apparently just might taste. Here in Hampton Roads we are watching Hurricane Earl with great interest.  Will it hit us?  Will it not?  And even worse… THE BEACH HOUSE.  My mother’s house in the Outer Banks.  The one with ...
This Is What A Dislocated Ankle Looks Like
Published on Sunday, August 29, 2010 by Remember a week ago when I called 911 for my son’s ankle?  After seven days the swelling is finally starting to come down and he can walk on it without crutches, although gingerly at best. What I’m impressed with the most other than his giant Hobbit-looking foot is the super cool bruise that began to develop just a few days ago. We have watched it spread fr...
Climbing Mountains and Eating Crickets
Published on Tuesday, August 24, 2010 by Last week I came across a box of Crickettes at a friend’s house.  “Crickettes?  Are these really….  EWWWW!”  Indeed, he had a box of Salt and Vinegar flavored crickets on his table.  Salt and vinegar crickets.  AND HALF THE BOX WAS GONE. I sat and stared at them.  I flipped over the box and read the back: Drumstick?  Flank?  Wings?  Would I eve...
Last Night I Called 911
Published on Saturday, August 21, 2010 by The drive last night to Corolla was a long one.  My tire light came on, dinner took 45 minutes and I had to stop and get gas.  But at 10:00 we were finally pulling in to the driveway of the beach house. With our usual excitement, we opened the doors and took in the distinct smell of the salty ocean air. My 17 year old carried the cooler upstairs while I opened ...
Another Weird Thing in my Back Yard
Published on Thursday, August 19, 2010 by The Mysterious Bone Meat.  How can one forget that fateful Christmas dinner?  What was on that bone?  Was it Dora?  Jesus?  Intriguing! Today I have a new one.  I was walking through my backyard and came across this, well, thing.   I picked it up and was stunned at the skull looking back at me.  What the heck WAS this object?  It was round, chalky looking...
And The Third Thing To Bite Me Was?
Published on Saturday, August 14, 2010 by In celebration of my oldest son's birthday, we went to Ocean Breeze Water Park for a fun day of water slides and stairs.  Up the stairs, down the slide.  Up the stairs, down the slide.  My nine year old was tied to my hip.  Do you know just how many times a nine year old can fly up a hill of stairs?  Proudly, I matched her every step. My middle son was true ...
My Shoes Are A Magnet To…
Published on Wednesday, August 11, 2010 by As of this writing, only eight people have entered the $100 Visa Gift Card giveaway on Agoosa!  Great chances to win! Finish that sentence.  If you know me and you know my luck, I would assume your answer is POOP.  And you are correct.  But the story has a twist... For the last two months, no matter what tennies I have on, my feet seem to be an irresistabl...
