My Favorite Things

"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, … " Woke up from a dream in which a friend had given me a ride to some waterfront area, and we stopped at a pre-dawn coffee shop/bakery on the way when I realized I’d left my purse in the car.

TALKING TO MYSELF

What to write about? No idea. Something weird? What are you thinking? How about that story on this morning’s news about the turkey that flew across the road and crashed into lady’s windshield?
