ABOUT ME ...and then the cat barfed.
Man plans and God laughs. Sometimes I think I amuse Him a lot. I've been late to work twice this year because the cat barfed just as I was trying to leave the house. Every time I think I have my ducks in a row, they simply fly off. All I can do is watch them as their v-shaped formations change now and then to put another duck in the lead to take the brunt of the winds. And I am grateful that God is at the head of my V to take the brunt of the winds. I am an extremely fortunate person. I have a wonderful husband (to whom this website will remain unseen lest he become complacent or conceited), four wonderful children and twelve grandchildren...even more wonderful creatures.
I live on the plains of Kansas. Most of the time, I am good with that. Sometimes it seems the towns are just pinned here and there like dead insects on a display board waiting to be blown away entirely.
I lived and worked in the Black Hills one summer and visit every chance I get. I love waking up to the scent of pine trees, the sounds of birds and the breeze soughing through the needles.
I have been writing since I was ten. I won a short story contest with "Chimes For Nikki" in college, and had a few articles/photos published in the "KANSAS!" magazine.
