And the "One More Little Thing" Was...

Can You Say "Lady?" I promised you one last little tidbit that had happened during one of our River trips, and I'm a L ady of my word, so here it is. The Landing had a boat launch, and it was necessary to use it to get the ski boat into the water. While the boat was being launched, some of us were... Sign in to see full entry.

The Third Time's a Charm

Isn't It? They bribed me. Promised me this time it would be different. And I believed them. They lured me in with the brochure, the brochure showing the glorious sights one could view from an air-conditioned houseboat on The River. There was seating, beds, a fridge, stove, sink, and above all, a... Sign in to see full entry.

"Book Me a Room, Please!" With the long Memorial Day weekend upcoming here in the US, many people's thoughts turn to vacations. Some folks are great at camping out, roughing it; finding water, washing frying pans in a river, sleeping in tents. I get it that it's fun. Me, I was never a "good" camper....

And Then at My Wedding...

A Ring Goes Missing! Since weddings have been a topic of conversation this past weekend, something that happened at my own wedding (back in the Dark Ages) came to mind.

File Under: You Never Know..

Warning: Contains "Female" Talk, Do Not Read if it Bothers You Funny how one wanders along in one's life, content with the mundane, even expecting the mundane as a synonym for normal. And that's a good thing. It's nice to know there is a rhythm to life, the beat of day-to-day living. Some call it... Sign in to see full entry.

A White Wedding

Who Started the Custom of Wearing a White Wedding Dress? With the Royal Wedding upcoming, I thought I'd mention that it was Queen Victoria who is credited with starting the tradition of brides wearing white on their wedding day. She married Prince Albert back in 1840, and chose the light color so... Sign in to see full entry.

When You're Rich Enough to Drive an Excalibur...

Why Use a Bathroom? It happened, oh so long ago and sorta far away, and before they advent of "kit" cars, so the cream-colored, Excalibur convertible roadster we eyeballed that hot, summer afternoon was the real deal! The car was gorgeous! We'd been in downtown L.A., enduring its heavy traffic, and... Sign in to see full entry.

My Mother's Day - The Report

"Don't Clear the Table Yet!" Mother's Day started off being one of those kinds of days that whatever one had planned to wear didn't work out. This was because of the way the weather is: warm, then cold, then windy, then drizzlin, all within five minutes. I went through a couple of outfits before... Sign in to see full entry.
