A small town southern girl, trying to learn from everyone I meet along the way, those who teach me about myself become my true friends.

Some of the skills that my Grandmother (s) relied upon for survival are being revived today, and there is a whole generation of people who think they are new. Even so, learn and master them. You will be all the wiser.

Through the years, I have been a retail store manager, ( a soul stealing profession), I have driven a big-rig, worked as a professional cook ( my personally most satisfying) and recently transported Fema trailers out of the New Orleans area. Currently, I am the " Dietary Services Manager" at an assisted living center, which has a resident population of 96. It is easier for me to say, " I am the kitchen lady".

It seems that I was born with a pencil in my hand ( and a jumbo eraser), but I am no computer guru. There will no advice or 'how to's' from me in that area!

My husband is a construction foreman ( industrial sites) and we travel the USofA extensively, living in our fifth wheel trailer as we go. It has become an artform.

We also ride motorcycles. We have Suzuki Intruders, a 1400 cc and an 800 cc. My bike is brought into the trailer as we go along the highway. His bike was once, but it had to be dismantled to get it through the doorway, so that idea was scratched. I have learned, if I can't be ready at a moment's notice.......I will be left behind! Hubby has learned, that I sometimes like that.....

I am a complex person, who appreciates simple things, books, front porches, backyard gardens, cool breezes, warm sunshine, spring rain and the laughter of babies.

I tend to be conservative with my vote and quiet with my faith. The government is not my friend, should not be my caretaker and needs to get its own house in order before attempting to run mine. Quite frankly, I am tired of them trying to protect me from myself. Adults should be able to police themselves.

God made me and Jesus saved me.

That's it in a nutshell.

I did not write the following, but it does represent my sentiments:

It's the Veteran, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.


It's the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech.


It's the Veteran, not the community organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate.

It's the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.

AND ONE MORE THING........

If you ever see anyone singing the national anthem in Spanish - TELL THEM TO SPEAK ENGLISH.

I personally wish you Enough..........
