Decorating The Xmas Tree

Oh the weather outside is. . .weird. Cold one minute, hot the next – who does not believe in climate change?

I’m No Lady

I’ve never been a girly girl. I’ve never been a beauty queen. I’ve never liked polka dots. I never liked wearing panty hose. People used to tell me to be more lady like but I’m no lady. To be a lady you must be quiet, mannerly, elegant and mature and I’m none of that. WhenContinue reading “I’m No Lady”
