If You Don’t Laugh, You’ll Cry. The Ludicrous Lake Logjam Lingers On.

We were supposed to be in our house by now. In fact, we were supposed to be there in April, which has presented some unique lodging challenges. Campsites need to be reserved several months in advance if you hope to have a place to plant your RV. No worries, right? We like to cover ourContinue reading “If You Don’t Laugh, You’ll Cry.

You Can Learn a Lot from a Mermaid

Not to brag, but my granddaughter made the perfect Ariel in her elementary school production of The Little Mermaid. She looked the part, knew all of her lines, and delivered them with conviction. She was 100% believable as she swam against the tide, made sacrifices, and fell in love with Prince Eric. Furthermore, her dancingContinue reading “You Can Learn a Lot from a Mermaid”

I was not in a good place… In Return of the King, J.R.R. Tolkien states, “Oft hope is born when all is forlorn.” He’s right. IContinue reading “Healing, Hope and Who Wants a Jellyfish Sandwich?”

Georgia is Just Peachy!

I’ve spent the best part of the past few years discovering America. We’ve seen many extraordinary places and have made an art of exploring our own backyard. Each area of our vast country has bragging rights. This is an impressive land we live in. Maybe it’s because we have had absolutely stellar weather for mostContinue reading “Georgia is Just Peachy!”
