another year completed, time for some renovations…

By in Life, Me, Side Porch

Today is my birthday! 36 years have been successfully completed and now I’m embarking on year 37. So far it’s off to a pretty good start, thanks to wonderful family and friends! It can be easy sometimes to get mired down in day to day gripes and issues and lose sight of the important things, […]

spring has sprung…

By in Exterior, Lawn & Garden, Life, Me

After what seemed like an absolutely endless winter to me, spring is finally here! To say I’m breathing a sigh of relief would be an understatement (although allergies are trying to get in the way). Winter does not have a very “uplifting” effect on me at all, hence the quiet on here throughout the winter […]

like a velvet glove cast in iron…

By in Art, Life, Me

I just discovered the horrible news that Tura Satana , one of my all time favorite cult film actresses and star of Russ Meyer’s Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! died last night in Reno, Nevada. I’m absolutely crushed by the news. I first discovered Tura Satana in London, England in 1995. Several of my friends and […]

it just keeps coming and coming…

By in Life, Me

My friends downstate have been hammered by snow this winter so I really shouldn’t be complaining at all. However, we are getting hit by a huge storm right now and I’m not enjoying it. I have a precarious relationship with winter. I like the holiday season, and that’s about it. If I had the ability […]

beautiful fall day…

By in Lawn & Garden, Life, Me

Today was a gorgeous day and I was able to utilize a couple of hours this afternoon to do some long overdue raking and yard-work. It was high 50’s and slightly cloudy and I raked out all but two of my flower beds and most of my property perimeter in preparation of having my leaves […]

a blast from our groovy past…

By in Life, Me

Anyone who knows me knows I love the kitschy and bizarre! I came across this YouTube video of Raquel Welch today doing a very groovy space dance and thought I would share it! Out of this world, isn’t it?

hey there!

By in Life, Me

Well, what can I say? The past year had a few bumps in the road so I had to step back from the blog and take a fresh look at things. Sometimes it is just good to try to gain a new perspective on what is going on in life before you can move forward. […]

finished…

By in Art, Me

I’ve completed my first painting since 1995 and I’m very happy with how it came out. For a long time I wasn’t sure it would end up looking like what I had seen in my head, which is probably why it took me long to finish it (over a year). The idea evolved somewhat over […]

ideas…

By in Art, Life, Me, Pets

My cat Thurston passed away two months ago this past Saturday it it pretty much put a pretty big damper on my summer. He became pretty ill at the end of June with Chronic-Active Renal Insufficiency. He rallied after a few days but most of my focus was diverted to making sure he felt well […]

my hands are frozen

By in Life, Me

The above picture of my mom feeding the gulls in Panama City Beach, Florida was taken by my father. They are spending the winter there for the first time in their 43 years of marriage and I’m happy for them. Even though I’m FROZEN here! It’s -6 here!!! So, my parents are soaking up the […]
