We've been in Mobile, home of the original Mardi Gras, for the past several days soaking up the revelry. I have learned some of the local terminology over the past few years, throwing around phrases such as "when does the parade roll"..."the parade rolls at six"..."is it still going to roll in this weather?" Well roll they did and our Mardi Gras culminated last night with the Professor riding in the final parade of the season. The parades rolled, the good times rolled. For days we've been…Continue

Every day, I run across so many things online that catch my eye. Some make me laugh, some make me cry, some restore my faith in humanity while others leave me scratching my head. Whatever the case, these are all too good to keep to myself. Here are the videos and feel good stories that got my attention this week. Take time out to click thru and watch or read. I know how busy we all are so I wouldn’t steer you wrong. Enjoy and happy weekend!

Y'all, look at this building! Are you in love? I was the second I saw it, which is why I chose this wonderful place for my first post!

The last beads have been flung, the parades and balls are over, masks have been taken off and the King cakes have all been consumed. Though Mardi Gras, a carnival held around the world to signify the season of Lent, ended yesterday with “Fat Tuesday”, the last day of the carnival season, you can continue the celebration through the year by incorporating the colors of Mardi Gras in your interiors. …Continue

Friends are such an important part of our lives, our first connection with the world outside our families. I've been blessed to have some wonderful friends come into my life through the years. Some have remained and others have drifted away. I haven't always been the best friend, but I've learned a lot of…Continue

It was the end to a gorgeous weekend. All day Saturday and all day Sunday, the clouds were at bay, the sun was shining and the wind gently maneuvered at just the right moments. By and large, this, the first weekend of March, was indeed a great sign that spring was here. The season of rebirth; the season of budding flowers and singing birds; the season of promise and new life and peaceful days.
I sat at the lovely outdoor deck of…Continue

Was it love at first sight? No. My mother spotted my father’s roommate’s car and smiled eagerly. Hardly any young man on the GI Bill after World War II owned one.
She and her mother (“Nannie”) had stopped at mid-stitch in the second-floor sewing room to spy on the college boys unloading their bags to move into rented rooms next door.
“Look, Mama, the blond has a car!”
“Would you look at that other fellow?” Nannie exclaimed. “I’ve never seen such a mop of black hair in my…Continue
A couple of weeks ago, the day my book released, my good friend Sherry from Montana called to say she needed to buy an extra copy. Apparently she listens to Outlaw Country on XM Radio and decided that singer-DJ-radio-host Elizabeth Cook needed a copy of Honky Tonk…Continue
With measuring tape, yardsticks and sharp-shooter squinting eyes it seems like we're always stepping back from an installation to ask, how high should it be. Or how low, for that matter? Hey! Just simply where should the bottom fall??
"Come on. Can you step over here and give it a look-see," we…Continue
I'm sitting here after a late-night walk with a friend. Depending on the direction we took through our neighborhood streets, we were either talking in peaceful near-silence or we were speaking against wind and a slight mist falling on our faces. Now, comes the wait for the full cold front, one of the last before spring. It gives me another chance to offer mugs of steaming hot chocolate to shivering children as they return home from…Continue
