Eight Random (Crafty) from Kathy

Posted by Sue on August 22, 2007 in Self-exploration, Tagged |

Kathy hit me with this one (again?) Since she is so crafty, I'm going to lean this one toward my crafty side. Eight random things: 1.) I hate the actual process of whatever craft I'm doing… I just enjoy the final piece 2.) I used to make all my own clothing when I was in […]

Another blogger jogged my memory today (bad pun, if you know the blogger.) She was talking about riding horses and this brought straight to my mind my horse-riding experiences. First and foremost I remember going to my uncles' farm where they had several horses and ponies. My cousins were very good at riding and rode […]


Time Does NOT Fly When You are Not Having Fun

This is my parents' new pup. This is the only thing that makes visiting my parents tolerable. I spent three hours at their house yesterday. A very long three hours. I hate to be this way. I feel like such a pretender when I'm with them. I can't relax. I just sit and visit about […]

Hurricane Dean is a spoilsport. The newlyweds were supposed to be leaving today for their honeymoon – vacationing in St. Lucia. You know, the one right in the path of Dean, the spoilsport. Although they took out trip insurance, no idea yet how that is all going to work and if it will be a […]


A Plague?

Isn't he cute? This would be a Copes Gray Tree Frog or Hyla Chrysoscelis (for you educated types). You can read all about 'em if you go to the link. I won't get into detail. We live in the country, along a creek and for the past several evenings we have had one of these little […]

in the days before… the dark days…there were so many things she didn’t understand. she didn’t know why her parents hated her so. she didn’t know why she could do nothing right. she was never good enough. the grades were never good enough. the bathroom was never clean enough. the girl was never quiet enough.

Re-writing History*

Posted by Sue on August 14, 2007 in Deep Thoughts, Self-exploration |

I've noticed through the years this ability of humans to re-write history. Sometimes it becomes very obvious, as in the case of our text books and how researchers delve into the pile and come up with discrepencies. More often than not, however, it is on a much smaller scale. It is the personal history that […]


Because It Is Monday and I’m a Lazy Sack of Shit

A non-blogging friend sent this via an e-mail to me so thought since I had to fill it out for her I'd share my answers with you… If you want to participate, just copy into your own post and put an "X" next to the ones you have done. We're always learning more about each other, aren't […]


For the Love of God… (A Rant) *updated*

Posted by Sue on August 10, 2007 in Asshats, Neighborly Love |

…STOP SHOOTING. I just checked the calendar. It isn't a holiday. Unless, maybe it's your birthday or something. I love where I live – except for those freakin' neighbors. What in the hell are you shooting after dark? I do not want to know. Asshats. *UPDATE – For those of you who haven't followed this […]


Straw *updated*

Posted by Sue on August 9, 2007 in Random Thoughts |

"Be sure not to go into town this weekend" … Hubs and I remind ourselves. It's going to be a nightmare to get around. Why? Because the Republican Presidential Straw Poll is going to be here. At this point in time, Iowa is the first in the nation for the presidential caucus (other states are […]
