A fishy gift

If you listen to this video you’ll soon find out what I bought for myself.

It only cost $7 so don’t think diamonds, for that matter, don’t ever think diamonds when it comes to me.

So now you know how I’ll spend part of my summer.

I expect to have fun with grandchildren. It’s about time we all get together again.

Wishing you a fishy gift, too.

Thump, thump, thump

The noise surprised me. Where was it coming from? I was the only one in the house, except for Sunny, Cruella, and Car-E.

It took me a minute to figure the unusual sound out.

Listen and hear what the bumping/thumping noise was.

Of course, you guessed it right away.

Little things like this unknown sound makes my life interesting.

A cold doesn’t stop this mom for long

I rarely caught a cold. Even after tending to a sick family, I stayed healthy. I had to.

This column talks about one of the rare times I was under the weather. I asked everyone to let me sleep. Of course, all the kids came knocking on my bedroom door.

Listen to this column to hear the odd but funny end.

I guess laughter chased my cold away.

I should have tried it sooner, but not exactly the way that happened this day in 1989.

A very odd dream

I’ve had crazy dreams in my life, but this was one of the craziest.

It was so different, I saw fit to write about it in a column in 1988. You’ll have to listen to see who was the star of my dream.

I bet you couldn’t guess that one. It’s so off beat and even I wonder where that came from.

Wishing you good dreams and no nightmares.

The spring cleaning bug

Most springs the spring cleaning bug doesn’t bite me, at least not right away. This year was different. In 1988, I went wild.

Hear how spring sprung on me in this long distant column.

This year, I’m outside picking up sticks and pinecones. Better to be out when the sun is shining.

Actually, housework is never high on my to-do list, unless company is coming.
