On Mothers and Camels
Published on Tuesday, June 19, 2012 by A mother.  The moment you become one, your life starts anew as the lowly camel. What is that, you say?  Mothers are like camels? Indeed, we mothers are true bosom buddies to the camel. Our loads are always heavy as we lug babies, bags and sports equipment from this field to that. We carry water for others, but often work with parched mouths of our own....
A Weekend In Corolla
Published on Monday, June 18, 2012 by Day 18 of the Blog Writing Challenge brings the subject, “Setting Sail.” When I turn my car towards Corolla, I feel like I am setting sail.  There is a sense of calm that washes over me the closer I get to my mother’s Outer Banks home. For thirty years, these stairs have greeted us.  We have carried so much up these wooden steps.  Suitcases, coolers, babi...
The Awkwardness Of The Common Banana
Published on Sunday, June 17, 2012 by You cannot imagine my joy at coming across this jeep outside of the gym, only two weeks before the blog writing challenge’s theme, “The awkwardness of the common banana.”   And the embarrassment my teen felt at me taking the picture. ...
The Ultimate Shaggy Dog Story
Published on Saturday, June 16, 2012 by In memory of my Dad, John Milton Schulze, Jr.  Navy Pilot, Devout Catholic, Devoted Husband, Amazing Father, Loving Papa, The Teller of All Shaggy Dog Stories.  Happy Father’s Day Dad.  I miss you so deeply that it hurts.  You went too soon.  We still needed you.  Today’s blog writing challenge is “Hanging Out In The Cemetery.” Yup.  My Dad was indee...
She was the Prom Queen, I’m In the Marching Band
Published on Friday, June 15, 2012 by Day billion and six of the June blog writing challenge.  I have had two BUSY days so I have not been able to visit everyone’s blogs!  Not good!  I can’t wait to catch up with everyone this weekend.  See you soon and sorry for the delay!  Today's theme is "First Place." Have I NEVER been in first place?  Spelling bees?  Sports?  Art?  Never?! My first ...
The Short Hairs
Published on Thursday, June 14, 2012 by Day 14 of the writing challenge brings us the subject, “The Short Hairs.” You may remember the 30-day photo challenge, in which I participated despite the fact that I didn’t have a camera?  So what do I do the day before I join the blog WRITING challenge?  Purchase a camera. Highly researched for three months, my son’s friend found this modest camera to be...
The Other One
Published on Wednesday, June 13, 2012 by I am participating in a 30-day blog challenge.  I believe I have gone insane.  Today’s theme sure hit home. The Top Five Regrets of the Dying.  It’s a book I have decided I have to read.  Immediately. Written by Bronnie Ware, this Australian nurse learned much from the elderly as she cared for them during the last weeks of their lives. When Ware ask...
In The Kitchen
Published on Tuesday, June 12, 2012 by Saturday night found us on the Ocean View Pier, loaded up with all the night fishing gear we could carry.  The evening was beautiful, the sunset exquisite and the people around us completely diverse.  Indeed, the stories you can hear on an old, well-worn fishing pier.  Especially when most people fishing are three sheets to the wind. We made our way home at ...
A Sense of Accomplishment
Published on Monday, June 11, 2012 by This is day 3,076 in the 30-day blog writing challenge.  Today’s topic is “a sense of accomplishment.” Our school district has much to be desired.  There are gangs, fights and metal detectors in our area’s schools.  My children would be chewed up and spit out within a week of attending any of these local gems. For fourteen years (SO FAR!), I have sent my ...
What I Learned About Babysitting
Published on Sunday, June 10, 2012 by Today I learned that if you have a blog challenge to write for, and the topic is babysitting, and you have been night fishing on a pier for hours with quite a few “interesting” characters and it is after 1 in the morning and you have had an adult beverage (or two) and you STILL smell like bait, that perhaps you should not attempt to create pictures about babysitti...
Ralph and the Magic Carpet
Published on Saturday, June 9, 2012 by Magic carpets.  One pictures a beautiful princess riding over dark skies abundant with stars and magic.  Or perhaps a mysterious male stranger, with jet black hair and piercing eyes as dark as night. When imagining magic carpets, one does not normally see the following image. Are they serious?  Ralph from New Jersey, minus his ice cold Schlitz.  I’m not sure...
Military Families.  Best Friends.  And Time.
Published on Friday, June 8, 2012 by My first best friend was Therese Stone.  She lived across the street from me in San Diego, CA.  I have not seen her since the end of second grade. The military brings so many people together and then separates them by years and miles. When we pulled away from 6620 Oakridge Road headed completely across country, no one could have imagined that one day Therese and I...
