Attack of the Killer Seatbelts

    Yesterday, I drove six hours in the car with a killer seatbelt biting into my sunburn. Yes, I know seatbelts save lives. But its like riding in a rollercoaster with the bar jamming into you and the strap pinning you to the seat. I adjusted the seatbelt, fought with it. Wore it the […]

World War Z versus Aliens

  My nephew swore that World War Z with Brad Pitt is the best zombie movie, because he thinks the humans are so smart.  I have serious doubts about the humans. Do you remember Aliens with Sigourney Weaver and Bill Paxton?  The aliens were smarter than zombies and the humans. In Aliens, Sigourney and the […]

Super Shark and Sharknado

  Nothing like shark week, especially on Syfy. I love their movies. Super shark can walk on the beach. By the way, apparently, a beach umbrella is useless against super shark. So, are bullets. And a tank. What would happen if it got sucked into the sharknado? It wouldn’t die. This means, super shark could […]

Blogger Book Fair: Guest Author: Lauren Grimley

Genre Problems   When you become a writer and start to tell people you’re a writer, you get used to the question, “So what’s your book about?” That’s not to say you have a perfect one-line, back-of-book-worthy pitch on the tip of your tongue each time. (You should, but it’s harder than you think.) No […]

Blogger Book Fair 2013, Guest Author: Cindy Young-Turner

I’d like to welcome Cindy Young-Turner to my blog and had the opportunity to interview her. What made you want to become a writer? I’ve always been a reader and I think one day I realized I could write my own stories and have fun doing that. I was about ten when I decided to […]

Colorado Rockies Vacation with Three Teenagers

  A jammed back week of Colorado Rockies vacation with three teenagers—my niece, her friend and my nephew. They bounded with energy at Glenwood Springs and the Continental Divide. At Glenwood, we swam and dipped into the hot springs pool. So, relaxing. The weather was great.   However, at the Continental Divide, they left me […]

Dobby the House Elf and Sadie the House Elf

A few days ago, I watched Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Yes, I love J.K. Rowling’s series. Since I’ve gotten Sadie’s hair cut, I think she looks like Dobby the House Elf from Harry Potter. She’s got his huge eyes, ears that stick out and a cute, worried smile. In her previous life, […]

Golden Colorado

  Snuggle Dog and I had to take my nephew yesterday to Golden High School for football practice. The beauty of Colorado never ceases to astound me. While he practiced, I took Sadie, my little snuggle dog, for a walk, around the high school which is nestled in the foothills. The neighborhoods had old houses, […]

Sadie’s Cowardice over July Fourth

My little snuggle bunny, Sadie, struggled over the fourth of July. First of all, she shook in my lap as fireworks burst into the air over Lake Dillon. Her fear started as a puppy at my mom’s house. She raced into the house and hid downstairs, wedged between the fireplace and the wall trembling. Yes, […]
