The Accidental Wedding

14th October 2017 by admin No Comments

Dropped in to a local pub with some friends after the show this afternoon. It’s four on a Saturday, and suddenly we hear a saxophone playing “Careless Whisper.” Turns out there was an impromptu wedding there. Even though the couple wasn’t technically getting married, they still had a bar ceremony. Bizarre? Absolutely, but these are […]

The Little Victories

4th June 2017 by admin No Comments

Once upon a time, I was young and I had big dreams, plans and schemes to change the world. Now I feel like I’ve won some kind of contest when I can remember to get my grocery bags out of the trunk before I walk in the store. Little victories, you see. Bookmark on Delicious […]

Flip or Flop or Flap

5th September 2016 by admin No Comments

I spent last night watching an HGTV Show where this couple buys houses in California for hundreds of thousands of dollars and flips them for a profit. Makes me wish they had one of those shows in Kentucky where I live. “We bought the house at auction for fourteen thousand, and we redid the kitchen, […]

Just to make things more interesting, I also threw in a […]

I’m The Map!

26th January 2015 by admin No Comments

Just out of curiosity, I took this quiz on a website to show how many states in the USA I’ve visited.  Not bad, although ten years ago, it would have been much more sparse. Looking at this, it makes me look forward to the travel book, “I Hate It Here.” Lots of good stories coming in that […]
