All creatures great and small grow up too fast. And I’m not only talking about my two grand-daughters. My neighbour’s dogs, whom I give biscuits to as I’m passing, have been such a source of joy for me. Who can resist these two little bundles of fur with their big sister, Henny, entrusted to, “Train…

I decided to make this summer count instead of simply melting . I’ve already written about the crowns and implant I had done at my favourite dentist. The next port of call was to the Cardiac Centre of Texas where I met the most delightful doctor, clad in full Muslim attire with a mask so…

Whenever I go outside to harvest, be it lettuce or arugula, flowers or tomatoes, mint or oregano, the cats wait for me on the porch mewing loudly, knowing that whatever I’m doing, it’s for them! They pounce when I set foot inside the screen door and follow hard on my heels to the kitchen where…

At the end of a busy day at the winery my favourite place to go is up to the barn to see the baby goats. There they were all huddled against the indoor pen stretching their necks to get to the hay, that to their minds appeared ‘greener’,  on the other side. For goodness sake,…

For the last couple of years I’ve been tolerating hot/cold sensations in two of my upper molars, “A couple of small cracks,” my dentist said, “I’ll re-fill those for you…just tell me when.” I mean, who voluntarily goes to a dentist to fix something that Sensodyne toothpaste manages quite well? “You can leave them,” he…

Our landline back in the day would announce the caller, at least the ones we had programmed into the menu. I typed in Twinkletoes for our oldest daughter, a nickname from her very early days as the first girl child after two boys. The automated caller I.D. would pronounce the names phonetically and the house…

Spending time with my toddler grand-daughter Sophie, is always a treat. Hubs and I had fun for hours with her just last week while her parents went off to work a venue that made it difficult to have this very gregarious, bird trainer-in-training, stay in one place without getting distracted by other children and her…

Daughts and her Hubs have an adorable dog called Titan. He’s a miniature schnauzer and very obedient. In fact he’s the best dog in the world. He now has a buddy who is a year old and if Tites is a miniature schnauzer, Tucker is a Toy. They were allowed to come over to our…

Daughts is a Mum! Congratulations. There’s nothing more amazing in  life than your girl – child giving birth to her first baby which is a girl – child too. She’s a natural, not at all uptight. During her pregnancy she finished both her college semesters with A’s. Took her final when her brand new baby girl…

Early in the morning is the only time to walk during the summer here in our little town of Weston, North of Dallas, Texas. Yes, the word Texas conjures up oil fields, vast lands stretching to the horizon, cattle, horses and rodeos, cowboys, dust and, at this time of year, shimmering roads and interminable heat…
