CARPE DIEM CHALLENGE: Summer Passion


summer solstice dream
back in the days of my youth
even now…perchance?


more shots of this beauty:

  note the humor of the owner's bumper sticker
yet it's rather sadly true with so many of our products

Ha.. yes driving a car like that through the night sounds like a nice dream
I can just see you tooling around in that red car! Go for it! The bumper sticker is funny (at first glance) but then a little sad-making, you are right.

perhaps, but I'm proud to be an American.

Which bridge is this over the Wabash? I live north of Terre Haute...not that I was born in Indiana. But have lived here the longest. Love that old car...

This bridge is in Vincennes.

WORDPLAY #12: Haiku about Miriam

CHOKA: 7 lines, 5/7/5/7/5/7/7
baby- heaven sent   arrived early- Miriam  minuscule fingers- slender exquisitely made mouth, chin like father’s  in love when first I held her appeals for her wellbeing

Pondering about My Blog

I've been through quite a bit these past months that I haven't posted. 
First, packing and moving and then unpacking
. The first step of unpacking was my taking down boxes that were five and six boxes high. 
About two weeks after I’d moved and was in the midst of unpacking, I developed horrendous pain in my ribs. I slathered on my gel I use to alleviate Fibromyalgia pain. Realizing that even that was not helping. Trying to make a long story short- Asked for pain pillsNo help; asked for another kindDoctor wanted to see meWent in- he didn’t understand why I was still in painSent me to get x-raysDiagnosis: compressed fracture in my 9th vertebraCause: osteporosisNow on meds for that I’ve discovered that anytime I overdo, pain comes back, not quite full-blown, but enough that I must stop doing whatever I’m doing. That includes sitting at my computer writing. I wanted to bring my friends up-to-date; I’m pondering whether I should stop blogging altogether or do it only occasionally. Thank…

Moving Time

In the Midst of Packing January 3, 2017

I will be moving soon to a smaller home and close to my youngest son, Daddy of Miss Bright Eyes. So I’m taking a break- I have been purging for weeks now, but I’m not finished. Whew!  So I won’t be posting till after the move and settling into this sweet abode.





Happy 10th day of Christmas!
