Whenever we had a picnic near a lake as a child, we were told to never EVER go swimming for at least an hour or you were going to have cramps and die. Each time I heard that particular ridiculous information, all I wanted to…
Two years ago I wrote a story about a den of sin in a retirement community called The Villages in Florida. Some told me it was all hear-say, but the…Continue
I used to make fun of old people who wore large hats that drove like they were in charge of a float in a parade years ago. I never thought that I would become one of them—surely it would never happen to me. After I suffered a stroke a few years ago I did not drive for over a year as I…Continue

Hi there! Want to watch me fish?…Continue
My Gnomes in my Gnometown are silent this morning as I eat my breakfast. There never has been a smidgen of loud partying, nor hushed whispers of a revolution to escape the yard. Heather Andrews from Pulaski, Tenn. on the other hand, has a…Continue
Some people get away with murder. I on the other hand get away with nothing. Even when I am doing nothing, I seem to look suspicious to the higher-ups. In Grade 4 we were lined up one morning to go to our classroom and the girls in front of me were giggling loudly. Miss Wells…
At the beginning of last year, Canada was seen as a gold mine of opportunity for foreign retailers. Target's hotly anticipated launch was just months away, and retailers such as Nordstrom were announcing expansions north of the border. Target's rocky launch, and…
She had heard that if she built it they would come—but they did not. Each day she wove another fine line, but instead of cobwebs-- they slowly turned into cables. Would they eventually become chains around her ankles with nowhere to escape she wondered. No matter how hard she worked on her creation, bare…
This is Chapter 2 of a chapter fiction piece I am working on.. Chapter 1 might be a bit much..for some.
I lay on a cold padded table blinded by the overhead light waiting for the aesthetic torture to begin. I was…Continue

I am not supposed to be eating the mini cupcake I am microwaving right now. Anything with flour in it is a no-no for my celiac ridden body. But I bought one a few weeks ago and froze it for an emergency such as today.
You see, my best friend is sick. He can't tell me what ails him as he does…Continue
Last night I watched the film "Marley and Me" for the 15th time. As Woody Harrelson once said,
“I have not cried this much since Titanic".
When the film first came out I had no intention of watching it. I am not a Jennifer Anniston fan, and really did not know much about the story. How Linda the “Hallmark Queen” could have nearly missed this is…Continue
My friend Suze Hawken sent me this and I just had to share.. Enjoy!
One student turned in the following book report, with the proposition that they were nearly identical stories!
His cool professor gave him an A+ for this…Continue
If you live in San Francisco, be on the lookout for some mysterious white envelopes -- they may contain $100 bills. An anonymous person is going around the city, dropping off sums of…
People magazine reports that Andrea Bocelli sang as Kardashian was escorted down the aisle by step-father Bruce Jenner, and the ceremony was performed by Rich Wilkerson Jr., a pastor from North Miami.
If that doesn't sound like enough, John Legend also serenaded the couple inside their…Continue
May 10th. was National Clean Your Room Up Day. I would love to see some raised hands from some of you who knew about this special day or participated.
I thought so.
First of all let me clear up the word Heaven in the title. I understand there are some of you out there that do not believe in Heaven, so let me rephrase it and say the following. Where ever you think you are going when you leave this earth there are no storage lockers for…Continue
I was born on the 24th day of July, which according to family legend, was the hottest day of the year. According to the "stories" of Arthur J. Knight, it took my mother a couple of days to try and force me out into the world. Other old wives tales debate this fact, but the general idea is trouble always finds me. I was supposedly born a perfect sized child with green cat eyes, blonde hair, and a streak of klutziness…Continue
For a week now I have been reading Facebook posts from guests who have visited the 9/11 Memorial in NYC that opens to the public May 21. Among the comments were many mentions of the presence of a gift shop. DNY Deputy Chief Jimmy Riches said the Museum is being commodified by an "atrocious" gift…Continue
