When I’m Feeling Blue…

When I’m feeling blue…, all I have to do Is take a look at you…, then I’m not so blue… Phil Collins is the man. He was right. While the rest of the lyrics to his beauty, “Groovy Kind of Love”, speak of romantic love, often when in need of a pick me up, nature…

It’s a Bea-u-ti-ful Day…

It’s a bea-u-ti-ful day… Sky falls, you feel like It’s a beau-ti-ful day… Don’t let it get away…   Is it, Bono?

If no, how did you survive childhood not watching The Brady Bunch? Oh… You had a life. Ok, that explains it. You are forgiven, my lovely friend. Back to Topic As many of you…

Friend of the Friendless-Yes, I Am. Yes, I AM…

Love. What do you think of when seeing and hearing that word? A lot? Me, too. I also see the word, “volé”. If you speak Spanish, you understand the translation. If you don’t, no problem,  it means, I flew. While I sometimes imagine I have the wingspan of an Albatross (11 ft. 8 in.), I…

We Can’t Control Our Yelp Experience. Or, Can We?

via Daily Prompt: Control Are you a furry-friend-parent? If so, have you ever experienced a need for  last minute boarding? If not, you are way lucky. However, if,  like my family, you have, you understand what we were feeling a few days ago. If you don’t have a furry-friend-child, but are familiar with parents having…

50 Years of Beauty- My BEAUTIFUL Friend’s 50th Birthday Celebration

Milestones. As humans, we experience several milestones. Some, we look forward to, others, not so much. The latter could be the thesis statement to another post, but I’m working on remaining on one thought or observation at a time. Age milestones are bitter-sweet. Hello, new beginnings and adventures. Farewell,  comfortable and cozy. They make us…

I Was Blocked By A Friend?!

Help me out, here, veteran social media friends. I think, many of you are friends? Up until January 2016, I had NO intentions of EV-ER joining social media. Aren’t you happy I decided to join?

Where Is My Favorite Spectator?!?!

Previously…. on “The Marathon Mess… ” Starting, well, me…, or as my husband would say, “the narcisista” and no, he doesn’t speak Spanish. He thinks marrying Mexican makes him an honorary -awesome-understands-some-sentences-and-can-speak-a-few-words Mexican. He wishes he was an awesome Mexican. Also, I’m not a narcissist, really, I’m not! You’ll see why I may seem like…

Can You Laugh and Run?

A month ago, my nephew brought up the, now, infamous, La Mascota 5K. It all happened over dinner at my sister’s home. We were eating, chatting and, of course laughing. We do that a lot, but when my sister’s best friend joins the mix, we could easily get rich quick with our comedy skits. Funny,…
