Discovering Reading Magic
Many years ago, I'd browsed my local Half Price Books and picked up a book to read: Maeve Binchy's Light a Penny Candle.
I'd seen the movie,…Continue

I've got the Giggles over Mr. Sexy Runner
At least three times a week, I work out at Jazzercise. My route there takes me along the west side of the small lake in my neighborhood. Eventually, the road connects with a main street, then another. I reach my destination in fifteen-ish minutes.
So what does this have to do with "giggles" and "Mr. Sexy Runner, Vicki?"
Most days, I pass Mr. Sexy Runner. LOL

A Gift for Me! A Gift for You!
I love-love-love to read. With a book, I can go anywhere and have a best friend. It's the most excellent gift ever.
For a long time, I'd share books I'd read with girlfriends. They did the same with me. When one recommended Janet Evanovich and Diana Gabaldon, I rediscovered romance!
But I wanted more.…Continue

The World Outside
I am fortunate to have a big window that overlooks my front yard and the street beyond. I've seen all kinds of things out there. Interesting people walk by. A variety of cars and trucks--some speeders. Car crashes. Cops stopping speeders. The greening of my yard. The yard men mowing. The red oak trees leafing. Flitting cardinals. Scavenging squirrels.
My flowering quince blooming in…Continue

My obsession is...handbags. I really, really love 'em. Clutch, tote, shoulder bag, carry-all, backpack. And it isn't the very expensive ones either. I have bought one for as little as three dollars. I like distinctive. Here's a photo:
The word handbag works better for me. The old-fashioned term purses, a drawstring bag men and women used to keep their valuables in, never appealed to me.
But why bags? Some people collect shoes. My feet are…Continue

The Winter Blues
Winter is not my favorite time of the year. I like cold weather for the holidays, and then, pack it up and head on out. Bring on the glories of spring! Warm weather, shorts, flip flops, t-shirt.
But that ain't happenin' for a while.
So what to do, what to do? I…Continue

Things are a-hopping and a-changing at my house. Boys moving around. Handsome coming home from a 2-day trip.
Geez, when is a girl gonna write?
Fortunately, I've mostly been putting touches on a funny short story, "Raving Beauty." It's about our true love being in front of our noses the whole time. A theme I like.
I like to write short stories, quickies, novellas. The story moves faster and there is no sagging middle. Finding a place to sell them is a little more…Continue
