One morning I complained to God that I have to wait a whole half hour after taking my medication before I can have my cup of coffee. In my mind, I heard the word fetish. I was taken aback. "What, me have a fetish?" I had to look up the word. Meaning #2 in the dictionary said, "an inanimate object worshiped for its supposed magical powers or because it is considered to be inhabited by a spirit."

On the outside, everything seemed right with my world. But on the inside, my mind started to wander. Sadly, it... Continue Reading →
Weekly, I drive past a place in the road where my son drove his first car off a 50 foot cliff. Thankfully that afternoon three years ago he survived that crash but his car did not. You see, there was a curve in the road. He continued driving straight and didn't turn with the road.... Continue Reading →

A few days after I posted Our Garden Failed, a friend presented me with a bag of his home grown tomatoes. I was thrilled! Then he told me to go get some tomato plants. This was good advice from my friend. So I got tomatoes, peppers and a zucchini plant. I was going to plant it all... Continue Reading →
