Furnishing a House And Keeping My Parents Living There With Me Through Memories and Decorative Items

The past few weeks since dad died have been the days I’ve been most dreading for quite a while (starting in earnest last summer when he was too tired to go on a private yacht for a week.  He claimed seasickness- that didn’t fly as he’d been in the navy and had a sailboat withContinue reading “Furnishing a House And Keeping My Parents Living There With Me Through Memories and Decorative Items”

2015… Another Parole Hearing for Numbnuts

Here we go again.  The numbnuts (does he deserve a human term?) who raped, sodomized, and beat me for 6 hours in 1987 is up for parole… again.  The same numbnuts who has been on parole at least 5 times since he was 18 years old, and NEVER got off parole before offending again, withContinue reading “2015… Another Parole Hearing for Numbnuts”

Blowing Away Runners’ Legs…. For What?

The Boston Marathon- April 15, 2013 has been bombed.  Cowards targeted an international gathering and celebration of runners.  There is no logical explanation.  This isn’t political. It’s not religious.  It’s a sport,  way to stay healthy, or hobby.  It’s non-threatening from any angle I look at it.

People see nurses as helpful andContinue reading “Sad and Scary Magnet”

America’s Shameful Truth

Only One Diaper and No College Fund

I started collecting baby dolls about 27 years ago.  I’d played with dolls as a kid (sometimes while climbing trees 🙂 ).  When I got older, I still liked the idea of a silent baby that never smelled. So I started collecting realistic baby dolls. This was way before the ‘reborn’ dolls that are disassembledContinue reading “Only One Diaper and No College Fund”
