A Great Reckoning by Louise Penny
I stayed up way later than my normal bedtime last night. There was no way I could put down my book until I read the final page. Once again, I am left without words. (almost). There are quite a few authors I enjoy. A few that I adore - those few who, I find,...

Thirty Years Ago Today
Donald Scott Barley and I exchanged our wedding vows in front of family and friends in a little chapel in Smyrna, GA thirty years ago today. That day was, I think, important in ways too numerous to say.  But, mostly, it was an opportunity for us to pledge o...

Mother's Day
I first posted this in 2011. I had planned on revising it a little, so I added a few photos. But. I found I could not - could not - bring myself to changing the words to past tense. so, I'm leaving it as it was. It says all it needs to say, I think, except ...

Jim Lavene - RIP
Wednesday, Octob er 21, 2015 I posted the piece below just this past October when Joyce Lavene died.  I have just learned that her husband, Jim Lavene, collapsed and died this morning.  So many in the mystery community are stunned, again, by the sudden loss...

This is another tragic loss. I just read a post from him this morning. They were great people and my heart goes out to their family. Hard to believe.

My Donald and My Mom
I ran across this picture yesterday morning. Don Barley and I are coming up on 30 years of marriage. Thirty years. Like every couple, we've had  our ups and downs. But. He's brought me more joy than I can even begin to say. Equally important is the fact tha...

Filling Station by Elizabeth Bishop
Oh, but it is dirty! —this little filling station, oil-soaked, oil-permeated to a disturbing, over-all black translucency. Be careful with that match! Father wears a dirty, oil-soaked monkey suit that cuts him under the arms, and several quick and saucy and...

Do people just piss you off?
The older I get, the less I like people. I have a fairly large group of people I care for - love, actually. But dealing with the general public anymore can be fraught with rudeness.  Civility when dealing with a customer, a client, a patient, etc. seems to ...

Me and Willie
Today is Willie Nelson's birthday. He's 83 today. I have loved Willie Nelson forever. I've lost track of how many times I've seen him in concert. Including one crazy weekend in 1983 when he had one of his infamous 4th of July concerts at the Atlanta Interna...

There's nothing more fun than happening upon the perfect bookstore while on vacation. When we discovered Quarter Moon Books, it made an already delightful vacation just perfect. It's warm and welcoming and fun. A terrific selection of books along with gifts that any reader would be happy to find. A beautiful selection of natural fiber clothing and sterling jewelry. I can't wait to get back.

These are the most aggressive people in the world. They may as well remove the price sheet they have on the front desk because the manicurists will not let you get out of there with what you request. They push and push and push until you finally give in just to make them shut up.
