  • From Sadness to Stupidity 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. Thing...
  • In Memory of Dottie 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 bo...
  • Am I Being Followed? 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 exp...
  • Memories of Wild Horses Brought Back To Life Memories of Wild Horses Brought Bac... 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...
  • Did You Hear The One About Hurricane Earl? Did You Hear The One About Hurrican... 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 rec...
  • Earl?  Is That You? 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 wor...
  • This Is What A Dislocated Ankle Looks Like This Is What A Dislocated Ankle Loo... 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 b...

    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 flipp...
  • Last Night I Called 911 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...
  • Another Weird Thing in my Back Yard 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 loo...
  • And The Third Thing To Bite Me Was? 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...

    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...
