Another chance at a tutorial--don't screw it up!


A few years ago, a friend invited me to be a part of a linky party where we were all going to make pillows. (Looking at YOU, Linda!)

It's Bernice!  She's come back!

Fixed Income Friday

(I'm just now realizing Fixed Income Friday does not have a banner! How's this one:)

Walkabout Wednesday: Longwood Gardens, Part I



This year, I managed to shame DL into taking me somewhere. (I rarely have to shame him, but he is definitely someone who likes to stay at Brandywine, given the choice. He is so much like my dad that sometimes I can't get my head wrapped around it. Do you hear that, Russ? I found a good one.)

Menopausal Monday: Going Back to School (but not what you think)


Dear Auntie Em,

I just got a flyer in the mail about college classes for non-traditional students. (This probably means 'older.') Some of the classes look really interesting, and a lot of them are held in the evenings, after work. I dropped out of college to get married (my husband was in the military) and I always thought I should have finished. These classes won't earn me a degree (I'd have to quit my job to do that), but they might be fun. Do you think it's stupid to try to go back to school?

Kirby Writes: An attempt at YA --Annoying Girl

    


       The whole thing doesn’t seem real, somehow…like it happened to somebody else. But then there are instances when I’ll get a call from a reporter asking for an interview, or someone will ask me to give a talk at a school. Once, JD and I were even asked to give a recount at a convention, using all of JDs photos and notes and just sort of telling the whole story (leaving out the part about having no friends, of course), but it conflicted with one of JD’s events, so we declined.
