Have you ever inadvertently avoided a disaster you didn’t even know was looming? And then, once you realized — Whew! — that you’re ok, you couldn’t stop thinking about how absolutely HORRIBLE it would have been if said disaster had actually happened? And in fact you can’t stop thinking about it, giving yourself goosebumps, just like …

My Hero Just Realized The Heroine’s Hair Looks Just Like Sebastian Bach’s


Young Sebastian, of course. SO happy that happened because when the Samhain art department asks for ideas about what the hero and heroine look like, I’ll send them this and say “make her look girlier.” NOTE TO THE YOUNGSTERS: He did not look girly. It was the 80s. You’ll just have to take my word …

That's my late Daddy, in the white gimme cap on the far right. And that Marietta, my BFF of 30+ years, with the red hair and green sweater in the front.

I completely forgot to post this – but on Wednesday my Diva turned 11.

Progress Report

Me, more often than I should admit

[NOTE: I’ve edited this post – I decided it was too busy and hard to read with all the excerpts, so I saved them into snippets – just click on the links and the Word docs will open.] [Also – I’m tinkering with the blog. It’s going to look funky until I get finished with …
