I should probably start with a disclaimer that I am truly biased because I have the best Daddy ever made—EVER. No, no, I understand that some of you may THINK that your own Daddy is the bestest, but I’m sorry to tell you he’s not because mine is. Now that we have that out of the way… My friends know that I have practically placed my father on a pedestal and had his feet glued to it. Because he’s AWESOME…hello? Ok, have to stop the hero worship for a minute. But in all ser
Today is an interesting day in our legal system. Many—myself included—believe that Justice has NOT prevailed in the case of the murder of 2-year-old Caylee Marie Anthony. For anyone who has been living under a rock, her mother, Casey Anthony stood accused of the crime, and has been found not guilty of all the crimes she was charged with. There are comparisons being made left and right to the OJ Simpson murder trial, where the evidence appeared so clear to many of us, yet th
Did you know I’m divorced? I know, scandalous! Oh, wait, no it actually makes me almost “normal”. Ugh—not really a demographic I ever wanted to belong to, but c’est la vie.

Amazingly enough, his wife is a fantastic hugger too. I wonder if that’s what drew them together…but I digress (as usual). He has this ability through a f
“Into each life some rain must fall…” Wadsworth had that right. What he didn’t warn me was that my rain would not be water, but Crazy People. I believe that everyone has a certain number of Crazy People in their life. I seem to have a plethora of them in mine. Of course it does beg the age old question: Is it them or me? But that is a different Conversation for us to have. **DISCLAIMER**DISCLAIMER**DISCLAIMER**

What is the definition of Family? Miriam? (That’s Miriam Webster for those of you who are not on a first-name basis with my buddy.) A group of individuals living under one roof and usually under one head: Household A group of persons of common ancestry: Clan A group of people united by certain convictions or a common affiliation: Fellowship There are actually a few more…my favorite of which is “A unit of a crime syndicate (as the Mafia) operating within a geographic area”.
