The Holiday with Kona Bean

My new granddaughter, Kona Bean, has already stolen mine and her uncle's heart.  She was an unexpected blessing. We almost sent her back.  Mike and Sarah almost sent her back. It was so soon after losing our little girl Fuzzy, and it was difficult because this new little puppy has special needs.  She was kept … Continue reading The Holiday with Kona Bean

Doodles, Yew, and Me

I once read that blogs were "poorly written streams of random thoughts." Well, yeah, they are.  Look at this post.  Many times I write random streaming thought with zero content. Hah...ha...haha. *nervous laughter* BUT that's not why I'm writing, folks! I have more work doodles and I'm listening to Christmas music (actually, I started listening … Continue reading Doodles, Yew, and Me

Thank you all (the few) that read this blog.  … Continue reading Finally Fall & Importing Japanese Urushi

A Fanfic Segue and Part 2 of My Coming Out

And so...? I really had to consider if I would breach this subject: fanfiction. I bet you all did not expect that. Did you know Master of the Universe, a.k.a. Fifty Shades of Grey, started out as a very popular fanfiction?  Mr. Christian (get how they came up with that name?) Grey was... dah dah … Continue reading A Fanfic Segue and Part 2 of My Coming Out

When I Fell Out of a Closet – Part One

I had placed the story of my coming out of the closet here a while ago, and then went through one of those manic moments where I throw everything away.  You know those spring cleaning moments? I do that often with old writings.  I had maybe four novels I'd written in the 90's and picked … Continue reading When I Fell Out of a Closet – Part One
