- I'd like to say a big THANKYOU to RicTeresa who made my great blog banner. He is an AWESOME talent and our very own creative artist here on OS. So, check out his amazing work, you'll be very glad you did!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i'm married to my first and only husband, Edo, of 32 years. we have 9 children (!), 6 boys, 3 girls, and, yes, i do know about birth control, thank you very much! i'm only on OS to share a little of what i know and to find out what you know, too. when i'm not around for awhile, it's 'cause i've gotten behind in my laundry and can be found folding hundreds of socks, but i'll come out of the dungeon and visit again, promise!

Oh, OS soul, are you weary of the drama and trauma that has been going on here for far too long? Is the backbiting and in-fighting just oh-so-junior high school for you? Have you considered, like far too many others, that some of the viral "friendships" are just a little too… Read full post »
Eyes awoke this morning, full of life.
Moving, east and west, eastandwest, eastwest.
I had woken during a REM cycle and was conscious only of this movement.
Feel it, the two fingers of my left hand reach up to gently rest on my left eye.
I can feel the gentle shift,… Read full post »
my crave for a cold, orange Fanta, has been fulfilled.
i savor its fizzy, swish of tangerine.
my mind thinks "mandarin", with supple, loose skin falling off in

And you can no longer see
Just let my love throw a spark
And have a little faith in me
And when the tears you cry
Are all you can believe
Just give these loving arms a try, baby
And have a little faith in me
And have a little… Read full post »
Take my hands and lead me,
With all my faults
In the ballroom waltz
That we might have done
Had we ever been young
It'll end in tears
But not for years
If you dance with me
Will you dance with me,
Me, with two le… Read full post »
As you know, Edo and I just got back from a recent trip to Yosemite. There I had a lovely cocktail drink I would like to share with you. It was so AMAZING I had to tell myself to sip, just sip, ladies do not gulp! And, I only had… Read full post »
Edo and I got to go on a 5 day trip to Yosemite National Park recently. We celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary there and enjoyed every minute of it! Yosemite is a wonderful place to visit despite the many people that are also there enjoying their stay. There are people from… Read full post »
(You can't beat the memories you gave-a me)
Take one fresh and tender kiss
Add one stolen night of bliss
One girl, one boy
Some grief, some joy
Memories are made of this

Around our house, when a child is sick from the "stomach flu", I dispense what is commonly known as the "B.R.A.T." diet. It is a diet of foods that help with the symptoms of this type of illness by providing some elements that tighten loose bowels and shortens the harshness of… Read full post »
This little blog of kindness goes out to all my OS peoples but especially to the folks that like to rant and rave about all manner of things. You may not realize this, but peace loving folk such as myself actually take offense to these near-hateful blogs. I have really low… Read full post »
Zucchini is generally considered a lowly vegetable, an immature fruit of the plant, being known by botanists as the swollen ovary of the female zuke flower. There, I told you and I bet you don't ever want to eat one again! If you dare get past that little factoid, I invite… Read full post »

Peanut Butter & Potato Chip Cookies
There were lots of leftover potato chips from this weekend and the kids had nothing for the lunchbox, so I dug out this old recipe from long ago. I don't remember where it came from, probably the back of a chip bag. In any case,… Read full post »
You're riding high in April,
Shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune,
When I'm back on top, back on top in June.
Say do you remember?
The raindrops seemed to play a sweet refrain...
Our hearts were ringing
Kind of Blue has issued a call to peace. He mentioned Charles Kuralt and the CBS Sunday morning show that Charles would produce. Here is one to remember and also a bit of poetry mentioned towards the end by Henry W. Longfellow. Hope this inspires you to put out your own… Read full post »
