Chickens in the Basement

I love to write and I love to laugh. When I write, I get to the point quick. My stories would fit on the back of a postcard. They usually make me chuckle. And you know what they say, "It's all about me!"

It's a Girl!

My niece is visiting! Erica Jane is 15, right in between my two boys. Ever since they were little teeny, Erica has had the ability of reducing my boys into giggling, squealing idiots. Within 5 minutes of picking her up, Will was in full silly mode!



She might accompany me to a few yard sales in the morning...depending on how late we stay up tonight. Then, we'll work on some ornaments I need to get in the mail for a swap. We might check out an auction in the afternoon.


Sunday, 7 or 8 folks are coming from Nashville to pick Erica up. Since they'll all be here, we might as well have a picnic...and go to Beaver Dam...and take the canoes out of the garage...and go for a walk in the woods...

Hopefully, Erica won't be too bored with her aunt's passions and obsessions or too annoyed by her silly, loud, goofy boy cousins!

Have a great weekend!

What auction? Where? You're taking a 15 year old girl to an auction? Sell her, you'll get lots of money! Or, just have a great weekend but it sounds like you've already got that covered.

My word verification word is "eticks"--so THAT'S where you get elymedisease from! I wondered about that . . .

Oh, and the President of the Melvin Fan Club is tapping his paw impatiently waiting to see more pix of his snack, er, object of his affection.
