Surfside Beach, SC

Surfside Beach has a nickname – “The Family Beach”. Less than 5000 people populate this small area and it is a part of the Myrtle Beach strip called the Grand Strand. I didn’t necessarily see a lot of FAMILY at this beach but I saw a ton of retirees or soon to retire couples. ThenContinue reading “Surfside Beach, SC”

Murrells Inlet

South Carolina has a lot of places to visit that is near water. I’ve been to pretty much every place at one time or another in my life. It’s farther to drive than NC beaches but it has some waterfront property that I can’t find in North Carolina. Murrells Inlet also has tons of seafoodContinue reading “Murrells Inlet”

Reverse Roles

When we are babies, most of us have parents that care for us, teach us, guide us and give us advice on how to grow up and take care of ourselves. Parenting is the hardest job one will ever love and it is not for wusses. Once we become adults we can choose to beContinue reading “Reverse Roles”

“Death Dogs”

While walking through a local Target doing my “glamorous” mom life thing, I heard a vendor joking with Target workers about eating “death dogs” and I was immediately transported in time to my college days. . . I have lived in several different income brackets from wealthy to poverty levels. I will have to admitContinue reading ““Death Dogs””

Little Bit of Nature

We have taken a few walks in the past few days as our temperatures have hit up to 70 degrees Fahrenheit – is that not crazy for February? So here are some photos from our “woods” near the subdivision for those of you still up to your eyeballs in snow. Enjoy.

There Is Something About Michaels

What is in a name? The name Michael, it is believed, was first derived from the name Mikha’el, meaning “who is like God” in Hebrew. Wikipedia was kind enough to give further explanation as thus: Michael is a masculine given name derived from the Hebrew phrase מי כאל‎ mī kāʼēl, ‘Who [is] like-El’, in Aramaic: ܡܝܟܐܝܠ (Mīkhāʼēl [miχaˈʔel]). The theophoric name is a rhetoricalContinue reading “There Is Something About Michaels”

How To Find A Boyfriend

Growing up in the 80s I think every teen heartthrob magazine had an article every month titled, “How To Find A Boyfriend/Girlfriend”. As if there was some magical formula or an easy way to achieve this. Of course most of the advice was either generic or something none of us have any control over. IContinue reading “How To Find A Boyfriend”

Snow, Again?

Wait a minute. Just wait a gosh darn minute. The weather forecast is showing snowy weather in my county AGAIN. This is unheard of. I live in a place where we get ONE show, dammit. Just ONE snow. The kids play in it and they stop complaining. I know it’s been a couple of dryContinue reading “Snow, Again?”

Now May Be The Best Time To Cruise

I have already stated that I will never cruise again. The three cruises I took were more than enough to satisfy me and to steer me away from future cruises. With Covid, of course cruises have completely changed. If you do like to cruise, now may be the best time to cruise. Because of CDCContinue reading “Now May Be The Best Time To Cruise”
