Laundry—I'm sure someone out there enjoys doing it, and if it's you, I have the number of a good psychiatrist. J Joking aside, keeping up with laundry seems an almost impossible task. It's something that has to be done and on a regular basis. And for those who say all jobs can be done as to God, ...

Snobbery
Snobbery is alive and well in society today. It's a wonder people are not drowning with noses stuck so high in the air. I can only assume most are staying out of the rain. And snobs travel in groups. There are Christian snobs who think their religious belie...
Snobbery is alive and well in society today. It's a wonder people are not drowning with noses stuck so high in the air. I can only assume most are staying out of the rain. And snobs travel in groups. There are Christian snobs who think their religious beliefs trump others.

Several things have been happening in my life that have put my writing on hold for now. My 92-year-old mother has had a stroke and is in rehab. I appreciate all of my readers and will keep you updated. Thanks for your continued prayers.

Story
Introduction

I was raised an Army brat and lived many places,  settling in south Alabama thirty years ago. I taught middle school science for nineteen years, and I'm now retired at the age of 58.

Retirement has enabled me to pursue my dream of becoming a writer.

My husband is a poultry farmer. We have two grown sons, a wonderful daughter-in-law, and a blessing of grandkids.

I like to think of myself as eclectic. But, then again, I'm probably just ADD with a little OCD thrown in for good measure!
