PAWPAW

There are a goodly number of pawpaw on the trees this year. They are liking this long cool spell and plumping up well, so I am watching them carefully. It is very hard to tell when a pawpaw is ready. 

THINKING OUT LOUD

Why is this a bad thing?  I talk to myself the whole day – of course I pretend I am talking to the dogs.  But – however. Thinking out loud helps clarify things. In fact, thinking out loud is a good way to get…

BE THE BUTTERFLY

At last – back in business! After three months of writing on either a tablet or my phone (which was in itself an exercise in patience) at last I have a laptop again. The Matriarch discovered my plight and bought me a new laptop…

ENAMouRED WITH GReeN

FouR INCH NaiLS

Or four and a half inches of rain depending on your preference. My titles seldom make any sense. I write almost every day and never get around to putting thought into my titles.
