Grandma Gertie always said there's not a savory dish that can't be made tastier by just a touch of tarragon.

Spring Fling

  • Here's my Natty, looking shaggy, and then looking natty indeed, after his spring bath and lamb cut. Now that the weather's up in the 40s, it was time for him to be shorn. Me, too...I got my haircut yesterday. And though we've still got some snow flurries predicted for this coming week, spring's knocking at the door. Most of the dog yard has thawed, and the cats are shedding their warm winter coats.
Just look at the difference in Natty's appearance...I snapped the "before" photo just three days ago, when he was drowning in fur.

I'm setting aside my winter blues and embracing pastels. I'm wearing green on St. Paddy's Day, and whistling up a leprechaun to inspire me to get more writing done, now that I no longer can claim my fingers tremble from subzero temperatures.

Three Firm Beliefs I'm Writing About:
  • Some say no good deed goes unpunished...I say untrue.
  • A steamed persimmon pudding trumps mince pie any old Christmas.
  • Mama could have ended the War of the Roses with her pineapple upside-down cake.
