I love my GPS. I really do. But some days…. POW, right in the kisser! I used to wrangle with paper maps. And once I opened one of those things, I could NEVER fold it back up. NEVER. It was like the Rubik’s Cube to me. HOW THE HECK DO YOU DO THIS, AGAIN?!?! In […]

Comments Off on Smith Wigglesworth, Smoking Teeth and Other Things

My local area got hit very badly- dams burst and the creeks and rivers are overflowing. I’ve never seen the creeks flood into the local homes like this before. My house is OK. I am slightly uphill from the creek. We have water in our basement but it’s under control. It’s a miracle, really. I […]

We shall never forget…. *takes off hat, holds hat to heart* I was on my bed, typing at my laptop (I write upstairs in my room, it’s quieter). Suddenly, I feel the bed swaying. Just a little. But it’s constant, so it gets my attention. As if someone is rocking the bed just a little […]
