After we got the first 2 girls situated in the back, adding a few more seemed like a good idea. It was the fall of 1973, I was 18 and life was a never-ending adventure. I had a job, good friends and a 1966 VW Beetle. We were headed out to our favorite Friday and Saturday night spot – The Keg. I was the driver … Continue reading
My name is Kim and I am a People Watcher. I am fascinated by the way folks LOOK when they’re walking. You have your everyday, normal “Don’t bother me, I’m on a mission” walker; the “Oh, Geesh, WHY AM I HERE? ” slow,-dragging-their-feet walker either right beside or 6 feet behind their companion and the happy-go-lucky person strolling happily along, with a big, goofy grin. … Continue reading People

We all have them. Oh, c’mon. Admit it – you have boogers, too. What’s the big deal? How many will admit they pick their boogers? Babies do it, kids do it, educated adults do it – even the Queen.

There is nothing as delightfully satisfying as the taste of an English muffin with peanut butter and grape jelly. Fresh out of the toaster, the muffin welcomes the butter to melt and seek out all of its little nooks and crannies. A good slab of peanut butter holds the butter in place, allowing it to get cozy with muffin. As the peanut butter joins the … Continue reading Celebrate the Taste

It always amazes me how people talk to their parents. When I am out at a restaurant or wherever, I normally hear snippets of conversations…we all do. What troubles me is how some kids speak to their parents. And, I’m not just talking younger kids. This morning I sat beside a booth with the Mom, daughter & her husband. Mom was obviously in her 80’s, … Continue reading Be Nice To Your Mom
I wrote this in 2014…. I feel compelled to write today – about Change. that big bad word. Change. It is inevitable. It happens every second of every day. from sun up to sun up. each day, each moment of our lives involves change. Why? well, because if things always stay exactly the same – how boring would that be? Every breath we take involves … Continue reading CHANGE
Why do we suddenly forget all the words we know? What happens to make us so forgetful? Is it the phase of the moon, barometric pressure, what we eat or don’t eat, or what day of the week it is? It always puzzles me…I KNOW my lines. But, I still get brain farts! I’ll be going along and out of nowhere – NOTHING. BLANK SPACE … Continue reading Rehearsals
