Yesterday I was able to spend a delightful afternoon with one of my best friends. We talk often but had not seen each other since the Spring of 2021. But, as is the case, it was if no time had passed since last we hung out. Once I put you in the FRIEND column, that’s just the way it is.

Our day together was simple enough. Continue reading →

So this year, after many seasons of non-gardening, I decided to buy some flower seeds and add a little summer color. After much deliberation, I settled on marigolds.
Why? I’ve never particularly liked marigolds. I like zinnias and nasturtiums and daisies. Zinnias were too tall for the area I was planting. I’ve done nasturtiums over and over. Daisies were not to be found on this particular seed rack. So I plucked a packet of marigold seeds off the display and thought how sunny and lovely the orange and yellow hues would be for myself and Continue reading →
Two separate Bigfoot sightings in 2021 occurring in Ashland, Ohio just a few miles apart from each other could make this area of the country a prime place to visit if you hope to catch a glimpse of North America’s famed but unconfirmed wood ape population.

Goodbye Abby Roads.
Abby The Tabby Pretty Girl Might Change. Abby Pretty Girl. Abby Girl. Abby.
You were such a good girl. You saved me when my heart was broken. I spent nearly 18 years preparing myself for this day so I wouldn’t feel such pain again. But it didn’t work. My heart is broken again.
Goodnight sweet Abby, the best kitty in the world since my last best cat in the world. I hope you knew how very much you were loved. I hope I was a good fur mom to you. You were such a good girl, even when you were bad. I will love you forever.
Abby Girl | Born August 1, 2003 | Adopted December 4, 2003 | Died June 8, 2021
