A Priceless Letter

When I checked the mail on Monday, March 25, 2019, I had received an extraordinary piece of mail.  After opening the envelope and reading a message written in cursive writing inside the card, it moved me to tears. Many years ago, probably sixty-one years to be exact, I attended elementary school in Levelland, Texas. My second-grade teacher’s name was Mrs. Chaffin.  Of course, I had not thought about second-grade for many years. A few weeks back my Mom called me to tell me that she needed some more of my books.  She informed me that Mrs. Chaffin had seen my book lying on a table in the...

Audio Excerpt, Chapter 40, Broken Hearts from “Love and Marriage”

Audio Excerpt from Love & Marriage: The Love Story of Nancy & Frank. I thought it might be fun and exciting to try to and record a chapter of my first book with me as the reader.

Emotions run rampant as you write about real life experiences. I knew this,...

Winterizing the House

What an eventful week for me, so I am not surprised unbeknownst to me, that a real cold front is on the way.  With the weather being severely crazy in south Texas this winter, going from hot to cold then back to hot then cold again in less than twenty-four hours, I just put off doing the close in around the house thangy. The problem is that my house has a pier and beam base which means it sits up off of the ground.  Of course, not high enough off of the ground for an average size person to crawl under it.  Why would that be logical? Also, all of the water pipes are under my house, not in the...
