Amazing Grace (Book) - 6/21/2013 5:45:30 AM|
This book is unusual in that it tells of the life and times of Grace, the lead character, in an entertaining manner with great imagination. Having been born and raised in a rural sitting myself, I found it very easy to imagine myself in the same situations. The stories brought back memories of the days before our home had running water and reminded me of my mother’s joy the day Dad brought home her first wringer washing machine. Rather than a dry recital of dates and facts, you actually find yourself living the life. Bravo, BRAVO!

Brain Surgery for a Headache? (Short Story) - 5/6/2014 10:26:59 AM
Heather was very lucky. That long wait in the emergency room could have killed her. All the more reason that everyone should have health insurance, regardless of how healthy they think they are. They are only playing Russian roulette with their lives. I don't understand why she was so reluctant to cooperate with the doctors and nurses. Was it because she was a nurse, or just her personality?
I fell once and fractured my eye orbit and sinus. My headache was excruciating, so I gathered up my parents who were visiting and we rushed to the emergency room. I had insurance and the emergency room was near empty. Still I waited over five hours before they took me in and gave me a CT scan. I never got anything for the headache and it, fortunately, went away by morning. Last year when I had pneumonia and almost died because it required lung surgery, the emergency room took me in right away. I have a Medicare Advantage insurance but was at the wrong hospital on a weekend. I never saw a single bill.

Wonderful writing. Emotions come through to me as I read it. I drive an ambulance and see people everyday like this. To me, this was REAL. Minor typos (two or three), but the content-Excellent! Bless you and your family! 4 stars
My Granny (Short Story) - 5/2/2014 11:12:47 AM
Enjoyed reading about your granny. Back in the day old people didn't take to, or understand as the world became modernized around them. My grandmother comes to mind. She lived in a log house deep in the woods of Arkansas with my grandfather and I doubt she traveled over forty miles from that place her whole life. Hah! She had a brother who left and moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma. My grandmother printed out a postcard to send to him. My aunt took it from her to mail it for her and she asked why she didn't put his address on the card. All she had on it was her brother's name and Tulsa, Oklahoma. Grandmother looked at my aunt like she was crazy and said, "Don't know his address." My aunt said, "Well, Momma, he'll never get this with just his name on it." Grandmother snorted and said, "Hells bells, somebody up there will see him and give it to him." She was something else, and could pick an eagle out of a tree with a .22 rifle as good as any man.
The Stolen Car (Short Story) - 11/24/2012 9:41:04 AM
Funny turn of events toward the end. That proves there's only 6 degrees of separation. Best to you, Donna.
The Stolen Car (Short Story) - 10/3/2012 2:28:01 AM
Thats fantastic, it really is a small world. Your story reminds me of something that happened when I was a kid about 11 years old. During the summer hols we went to a park nearby on many occasions and each time we went there was a little mini car parked which hadn't moved. After a couple of weeks my brother and I decided to investigate. The doors were not locked and we had a look to see if there were any clues as to the owner. There were some letters with name and address on and we finally persuaded my dad to drive to this address which was nearby. When we knocked on the door an elderly gentleman answered and we asked him if he knew anything about the car. He was overjoyed it was his car that had been stolen some weeks before and the police had been unable to find it even though it was parked in a nearby park. He gave me and my brother a £50 reward for finding his car. God bless. Baz
The Stolen Car (Short Story) - 9/19/2012 6:52:21 PM
Amazing story, Donna. What coincidence plays in our lives. I'm glad your daughter and husband found their car intact. He must have been a very superior sort of thief not to steal the $20 note. cheers

To Switch or Not To Switch, That is the Question (Short Story) - 7/28/2012 11:38:10 AM
Nicely done and accurately portrayed, but very concisely. In actuality, since I lived through this with you, I know that it was much more involved than you make it sound. I know how many different technicians we had here at the house and strangely, there was only one time that we had the same guy who had been here before. You'd think that once they start a project like that, they'd have the same guy return, but no.... too simple.... each time you go through the whole damn thing again and just about the time you get him up to speed on your problem, he discovers that it's not something that comes under his area of expertise... WHAT A FIASCO!!!!
To Switch or Not To Switch, That is the Question (Short Story) - 7/2/2012 10:53:30 PM
I know how you feel, Donna. Good sharp piece with some sound advice at the end - if it's possible to follow. Sometimes you just have to change companies.

Boy can we all relate to this.
To Switch or Not To Switch, That is the Question (Short Story) - 6/24/2012 1:25:13 AM
Great right write Donna! We can communicate in space but we can't seem to communicate here on earth. Boy our county has it's priorities all backward. Hello! Anyone here?
To Switch or Not To Switch, That is the Question (Short Story) - 6/23/2012 5:31:14 PM
Such a true to life story; many can relate to this. And I like the ending. I can relate to that too, unfortunately .... well done, Donna!

To Switch or Not To Switch, That is the Question (Short Story) - 6/23/2012 12:29:36 PM
Donna, what a familiar story. About eight months ago I decided to switch from Time Warner to -- as they had spent millions of dollars laying in the Fios cable -- I switched from Time Warner to Verizon Fios. Now, I do run my business from my home and have Verizon for my phone because, for the past number of years my business has been on their "Super Pages" but I had Time warner for television and computer. Verizon offered a special "bundling' introductory rate, which I took advantage of. However, as it turned out, the rate was for "residential" service and as my phone was listed under "Business"... Even now, all these months later, remembering the hellish nightmare that went forward still turns my stomach... Good story, Donna, but I hated the memories it drudged up.
To Switch or Not To Switch, That is the Question (Short Story) - 6/23/2012 6:10:45 AM
Oh boy! Have you ever got THIS right, Donna. I've been mad enough to kill on more than one occasion and would have if I could have drawn a bead on the person I was talking to. I am to the point if I need help or whatever with the phone/Internet and I call them I usually hang up immediately after they answer. Call me racist if you want, but when you are trying to solve a problem with your system it goes much smoother if the person you are speaking to understands and speaks English, so, I keep hanging up until I find one that does. This one hit a sore spot with me.
BAD DOGGIE, GOOD DOGGIE (Short Story) - 3/20/2012 8:33:32 AM
Donna, stories like this may be a reason I never became a parent. I might not have survived the first roof incident, let alone two. My guess is that Heather became a very special person and beside all the scarey moments she provided, the majority were endearing. I hope Max was awarded an extra bone for all his caring and concern. I really enjoyed this story.
The Joy of Buying Your First Home (Short Story) - 3/17/2012 12:09:19 AM
Lovely story and relevant to many places. Actually i thought houses were cheap in the uS though perhaps not the one you want to buy. I hope your daughter and her partner have success soon. Cheers
The Joy of Buying Your First Home (Short Story) - 3/6/2012 9:06:16 AM
That made me smile, well my dad had nothing to complain about in contrast as he lived in the same town as me when I was house hunting, of course I did need a chauffer on some occasions. God bless. Baz
THE MAN WITH TWO SAILBOATS (Short Story) - 2/29/2012 3:48:01 PM
I love surprise endings and that one really did it for me. I couldn't imagine where you were going with that story and was still baffled after the old guy revealed what the sailboats were. I thought the very end would include a couple of men in white coats looking for their escapee from the "nervous house."

i smiled right away with the geographic impossibility of yesterday forging ahead into todays....how exciting that technology allows us so much more ...you will enjoy vacationing anywhere to see your daughter...but florida sure sounds nice!
The Joy of Buying Your First Home (Short Story) - 2/19/2012 10:06:28 AM
"Nervous breakdown"? Come on, Joy, you know you love it and, really, even if the kids lived closer, there'd still be some of the same stress and your opinion, and that of your "sweetie" would still be required. By the way, your daughter looks like a real beauty.
A Taste of Honey (Poetry) - 12/27/2013 4:47:50 PM
That's one great poem from a beautiful drawing that is frozen in time. You just never know when a taste might come visit again. You just never know...
Have a Happy New Year!
A Taste of Honey (Poetry) - 12/27/2013 12:36:11 PM
This one so touched my heart. And the drawing is so well done and beautiful, showing love and the moonlight on the dock… I can almost see myself there on a summer night. I hope she was drawing you and your best friend from what she had seen the night before.
A Taste of Honey (Poetry) - 12/27/2013 11:30:23 AM
First loves are, so it has been said, and so it has been with me, first loves are never to be forgotten... Your poem says it so sweetly, Donna... Happy New Year to you.
A Taste of Honey (Poetry) - 12/27/2013 8:07:14 AM
No, your words are fitting and powerful connection to the drawing. I love both equally.
A Taste of Honey (Poetry) - 12/27/2013 7:42:36 AM
What a treasure it is. I can see why you have kept it all these years. Your poem is filled with the feeling of love you had all those years ago and remains today. Love it! Thanks for sharing. I wonder if she has done anything with her art since 67.

Why Does He Love Her (Poetry) - 7/5/2013 2:46:43 PM
What a way to send a message to someone that has become complacent in a relationship! You have written a beautiful poem of enlightenment for that special someone to wake up before its too late..
Why Does He Love Her (Poetry) - 7/1/2013 11:12:40 AM
Like this poem very much. Thought provoking but unfortunately, probably more so to women than men.
Why Does He Love Her (Poetry) - 2/10/2013 7:26:52 PM
Yes, what is he waiting for? The ambivalence of men is sometimes a heavy price to pay. But this here is a happy ending, right? :)
HOW TO TELL MY CHILDREN OF MY NEW LOVE (Poetry) - 1/23/2013 2:45:25 PM

High School Graduation (Poetry) - 1/8/2013 6:31:26 AM
My Mom told me a long time ago when I was in highschool, don't wish away your years, time flies after you graduate!
What a great read!
GRIEF (Poetry) - 9/2/2012 3:27:59 AM
I've been there many times, and this expresses that unfortunate experience very well. The ending is hopeful, and comforting to anyone passing through that place though! Very good poem, Donna.

My Military Men (Poetry) - 6/2/2012 9:07:49 AM
I was married to a man who served for 29 years in hopes of retirement and a good life. Sadly Agent Orange took him away from me. Why I wrote A picture on the Pillow.

Have We Forgotten (Poetry) - 5/28/2012 7:50:10 AM
A good lesson we should all remind ourselves about. When and work, my mind deep in some task to accomplish, I was often told that I didn't say “hello,” in passing or thank you when someone did something for me that I thought was rather routine.
Today, everyone is multitasking and human communication is broken down to the daily agenda and the cell phone. I was taught not to interrupt anyone on the phone. However, to wait for someone to get off the cell phone before you talk to them can present a very difficult problem. Don't you think?
Have We Forgotten (Poetry) - 5/28/2012 5:56:42 AM
I'd love to have been in line behind you. I'd have urged you to challenge her. "I'm sorry, but I'm in a hurry too. If you don't have time to go through the line properly, come back later. Now, either get your ass to the back of the line or put up your dukes.
I know you're too sweet to do that, but the more we allow these types of things to happen without challenging them, the worse it gets.... Perhaps screaming at the top of your lungs for security would have at least embarrassed her, but not without a certain amount of embarrassment coming your way too.
Of course, these comments come to you from a guy who wouldn't have said shit, if he'd had a mouth full.... You took the same course I probably would have taken. Put up with it, then rush home and write about it.
Nicely written, however. Dick
Have We Forgotten (Poetry) - 5/28/2012 5:52:07 AM
I hear you, Donna! People, for the most part, are just not pleasant to be around anymore...everyone's in such a rush they don't have time to be nice. Nicely done! (Personally, I'd rather be around animals most of the time)
Have We Forgotten (Poetry) - 5/27/2012 4:03:40 PM
Great poem! Now let's if YOU and I turn his old world around!
THE PLEASE PEOPLE POEM
"Please" is what you say
when things are not gong your way.
Holding a door is what you do
so you don't slam the person behind you.
"Thank you" is how you express
your gratitude for kindness.
A hug is a gentle way.
to "love" someone
when you just don't know what to say.

P.S. Send this to 100 folks and see if they don't get a stroke!
Have We Forgotten (Poetry) - 5/27/2012 2:04:19 PM
Very good and, sadly, so true poem (at least for today's generation), Donna. I'm amazed at the bad manners of the elderly lady. If she were in a hurry, what would have been so terrible to ask if she might "please" jump in line before you... This lady is an exception because I cannot believe that the people of our generation are so ill mannered. Personally, seeing as you do not really know me, I am 100% a "Please" a "thank you" and a "I'll get that door for you" kind of person.
Why Does He Love Her (Poetry) - 5/23/2012 8:57:30 AM
a question many men often shy away from...not because he doesn't love her but because...he does. thanks for share

faith and trust have a role to play herein...
Why Does He Love Her (Poetry) - 5/5/2012 8:16:25 AM
I so enjoyed this poem... Most of us women (and men too) have these questions, and probably know the answers, but when we are feeling vulnerable. they sometimes can get out of proportion in our heads. Regular good communication, and still acting as if love was new and fresh occasionally can help alot...
Best wishes, Diana..
Why Does He Love Her (Poetry) - 4/28/2012 9:57:52 AM
As long as there is communication...we all know the answers. But in the dark everyone stumbles looking for the lightswitch.
Why Does He Love Her (Poetry) - 4/26/2012 5:21:40 PM
I love this poem...And the answer is...Yes he does and Yes he should, but my guess is being a man he thinks she already knows.
Why Does He Love Her (Poetry) - 4/25/2012 3:23:00 AM
Communication is the key here, and the same can be said about him. Very very nice Donna all very straight forward questions. I like it.

Why Does He Love Her (Poetry) - 4/24/2012 9:32:31 AM
An old conundrum, well presented. We males find it hard to express our love, especially when it's expected and doesn't come.
Why Does He Love Her (Poetry) - 4/23/2012 12:49:36 PM
Women. Are good.
Men. Are not.
Why Does He Love Her (Poetry) - 4/23/2012 12:12:16 PM
An interesting and well thought out poem and as I read my mind couldn't help but thinking it could apply to either partner in a realationship. That being said I think if love is true it is always present even if sometimes we get absent minded and just need a gentle nudge now and then. Good write.
Why Does He Love Her (Poetry) - 4/23/2012 10:47:41 AM

I like the capitalization in your title that shouts at you, but be careful to not use it too much in titles for some, it takes away from the talent I see in your words that are, let us say delicious.

PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 11/6/2011 1:35:49 PM
I've enjoyed this well composed piece very much,
when I park in the sun, the whole inside of the car is hot
"super hot"........then Again, I must be doing something wrong.....
Love & Peace be with you
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 10/30/2011 11:40:06 PM
Thanks for the advice Danna, Lovely poem,
Thank you for sharing.
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 10/27/2011 9:45:20 AM
"Park Your Butt" 'So your steering wheel won't get hot.' It's a lesson indeed, Doona. Thanks!
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 10/24/2011 4:44:47 PM
Great wisdom from your Precious Mother, Dear Donna!!
She lives on through your heart and poem..
Thank you dearly for sharing........ our lives are enlivened and enriched as a consequence.. we'll be thinking about you and your Mum when parking the advised way for very good reason!
With Love and Deep Gratitude,

My Military Men (Poetry) - 10/16/2011 5:09:30 PM
Super Donna! Loved the poem about the military. Spent 24 yrs. in the USAF. Many fond memories but the BEST is yet to come! Amen!
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 10/16/2011 5:07:12 PM
Hey Donna - great write! I will not forget this one! BTW I live in Fla too. It's the BEST place to be, that is for me! Amen
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 10/14/2011 6:01:57 AM
Hah! Love it! This is so cute and clever. Good advice for all. I'll remember it! ~Hugs, Elizabeth
FAT CALORIES (Poetry) - 10/1/2011 3:06:36 AM
What an interesting way to look at it! If they aren't FAT calories...they must be SKILLY calories! Too funny!
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 9/28/2011 10:06:32 AM
Loved it! And in Arizona, we have to do the same thing. Wonderful play on words.
GRIEF (Poetry) - 9/27/2011 3:01:46 PM
Having recently lost my father, I understand this well. Sadly, everyone will go through this grief and will come to understand it first-hand, the loss of someone you love hurts to the very core and nothing can change it. But there is hope when there is caring. Emotional piece. ~Best, Elizabeth
GRIEF (Poetry) - 9/27/2011 4:58:01 AM
AMEN to this preceptive poem. Most of us have been there, I have many times. God has always got me through all my trials, Donna.
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 9/27/2011 4:55:17 AM
Enjoy this! Brought me back to memories of my Mom. I lost her years ago but the missing never stops.
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 9/17/2011 9:23:21 AM
Gotta love it.
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 9/11/2011 1:20:41 PM
This is a cute poem. Gave me a bit of a chuckle. May God bless you every day of your life.
GRIEF (Poetry) - 9/2/2011 6:31:43 AM
Beautiful Donna, The halls of grief are long and made of the hardest stone. Unknownto he who is the griever, as is a great wound, 'tis the place from where our healing starts.
GRIEF (Poetry) - 8/31/2011 4:22:48 PM
Makes me sad and want to share your grief. Just remember that when we feel most alone, that's when we realize that we are never alone, hard as it is to feel.
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 8/26/2011 6:24:56 PM
I like your mom's lesson better than my mom's. If mine said park your butt it was her polite version of sit your a** down.
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 8/23/2011 8:27:51 PM
Cute Donna, sure gave me a chuckle and a lesson I will need to remember...
Be always safe,
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 8/22/2011 4:29:40 AM
Giggle....very wise woman, your Mother! Cute story, Donna!
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 8/21/2011 7:39:48 AM
I knew your mom. Funny she never mentioned this to me. I'm thinking she liked your butt better than mine, could that be?...
This one is definitely a keeper, like it, nicely done. Dick
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 8/20/2011 4:39:01 PM
Uh huh..........it's wicked hot, and if you have pladtic seasts, your butt sticks to them. No fun!!~!
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 8/20/2011 3:39:37 PM
Love this...guess my Mom didn't tell me cause she never drove...lol..Sue
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 8/20/2011 2:35:23 PM
Good advice from dear old mom, especially on these hot summer days! Well done, Donna!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :D
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 8/20/2011 10:46:11 AM
Your Mom gave good, sound advice. Thanks for the reminder.
PARK YOUR BUTT (Poetry) - 8/20/2011 6:55:57 AM
I love this! I laughed too...great poem
GRIEF (Poetry) - 8/19/2011 9:10:12 AM
Such an amazing poem, with words so true, It sure is a lonely road, was the anniversary of my boyfriends death this week, I am not in contact with his family or anyone who knew him to grieve with. Have felt unbearably alone. Your story gives me a glimpse of hope though, thank you for writing such a sensitive poem. God bless. Baz
LISTENING TO YOU SLEEP (Poetry) - 8/18/2011 7:07:50 PM
What a beautiful tribute to your sweetheart. I can relate.
GREEN BOLOGNA (Poetry) - 8/18/2011 6:55:13 PM
What a cute little ditty and how nice to remember your sister with such humor.
GRIEF (Poetry) - 8/18/2011 5:09:36 PM
ONLY ONE WHO HAS PERSONALLY EXPERIENCED IT, COULD DO JUSTICE TO THE DESCRIPTION OF THIS VERY HARD STATE. BUT THANK GOD, YOUR LAST TWO LINES GIVES ONE A HOPE OF THE AGES...FOR JUST AROUND THE BEND, THERE IS LIGHT! SUPERBLY DONE! THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
GRIEF (Poetry) - 8/17/2011 4:00:25 PM
The elements of grief so very eloquently captured in your words, Donna.....only one who has grieved can truly understand...Very well done!
GRIEF (Poetry) - 8/17/2011 11:15:43 AM
Well versed with the deep pain that we all experience and in many cases how it changes our lives and perspective forever...
Be always safe,
GRIEF (Poetry) - 8/17/2011 9:42:35 AM
Nicely done & well said.
Grief most definitely is a lonely road, but good friends help to lessen the burden.
Thank you for always being there. Dick
GRIEF (Poetry) - 8/17/2011 2:49:51 AM
Grief is a Lonely Road - how so very true. And coming out of it, is always a blessing.
GRIEF (Poetry) - 8/16/2011 1:41:07 PM
Grief is a lonely road but I always took comfort in the fact that if the death made me so sad then I must have loved and been loved by them very much.
GRIEF (Poetry) - 8/16/2011 9:36:37 AM
Beautiful words my friend!
Hugs and Blessings
GRIEF (Poetry) - 8/16/2011 9:32:54 AM
Yep. There is always a light, you just have to search for it, hold back and wait for it, or make a light of your own. However you choose the light will always be there for you.
Nice poem. Excellent wordplay.
LISTENING TO YOU SLEEP (Poetry) - 8/12/2011 10:11:00 AM
Wow such a beautiful poem, Been listening to the song by ronan keating "if tommorow never comes" with the lines that he watches her sleeping so moving, my boyfriend said he could watch me sleeping for hours, it really touched me but was kind of odd to think of someone watching you when you are not aware. God bless. Baz
DON'T (Poetry) - 8/12/2011 10:05:05 AM
Now there is some good advice, great poem and so so true, its hard to stand by your own desisions sometimes, thanks for inspiring me to do so. God bless. Baz
MY RAINBOW (Poetry) - 8/12/2011 10:00:54 AM
I loved this poem, it really moved me and stirred in me a little hope. I love rainbows and the rainbow was a symbol of my love to steve (my rainbow) who died recently. Thank you for writing and sharing such a beautiful poem. God bless. Baz
My Military Men (Poetry) - 7/30/2011 4:05:55 PM
It's so hard for wives and children who see their men go off to war. And not only men, women too. How much better the world would be without war. Good poem Donna. Thank you for reading my poem.
DON'T (Poetry) - 7/27/2011 4:13:12 PM
The moral of these words
is to trust your own decisions.
Turn a blind eye and deaf ear
to potential criticisms.
I appreciate the philosophy and advice that you have shared through your verses, Donna. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
CRUISING WITH A SMILE (Poetry) - 7/9/2011 8:09:11 PM

MY RAINBOW (Poetry) - 6/27/2011 10:35:53 AM
I like the way you've taken God's rainbow and made it personal. This is a WONDERFUL poem of hope and perseverance, Donna. The Lord has been good to you.
My Military Men (Poetry) - 6/27/2011 10:30:52 AM
A very powerful, heart moving poetic tribute that seems to march before us with a majestic cadence of its own. I was a military man, and I salute your dad and husband's noble service. You remind us of those who remain back at the home front. Very fitting indeed.
FAT CALORIES (Poetry) - 6/21/2011 9:56:02 AM
This dieting thing seems to be on almost everyone's mind. I enjoyed your poem about it. Made me smile.
My Military Men (Poetry) - 6/19/2011 6:02:01 AM
A beautiful tribute to our servicemen and your husband and father. May God bless you every day of your life.
ALONE (Poetry) - 6/13/2011 11:24:08 AM
Donna, This is so beautifully penned! Excellent description of pain and how life goes on despite it all! Blessings...Frances
DEAR SANTA (Poetry) - 6/8/2011 2:20:21 PM
Awwww, I hope you gave your guy a copy of this touching poem. It's just right. Well done, Donna.
FAT CALORIES (Poetry) - 6/8/2011 2:18:03 PM
OMG, this is adorable, Donna! (I love how your mind works, girl)
My Military Men (Poetry) - 6/2/2011 9:04:00 AM
Well written indeed sweet lady...Hugsss
DON'T (Poetry) - 6/1/2011 2:27:17 PM
The moral...so excellently said, Donna!
The contraction "Don't" broken down is "do not" which
can be considered 50/50 "do" or "not"...to each his own.
My Military Men (Poetry) - 6/1/2011 7:57:53 AM
What a wonderful tribute to the military men in your life! Thank you for pointing out the people who are left behind at home; as a former military wife, I know first hand how difficult it is to carry on while dad is gone, putting on a brave front while mom has her fears for the future. Your poem touched my heart and made me smile... a great feat for a poet to accomplish! Joy L. Hale
DON'T (Poetry) - 5/20/2011 1:17:59 PM
Great advice, Donna. I struck out on my own also, but unfortunately my way was the highway and trouble loomed. Thanks for the read of my short story, "The Operation." Yes, the ending wasn't quite . . . er . . . normal.
CRUISING WITH A SMILE (Poetry) - 5/16/2011 9:47:56 AM
Hahaha! We just got back from a Western Caribbean cruise aboard Allure of the Seas with a group of 40 fellow Canadians, and many of them also "hid" booze in their luggage. We figured that since we're not the type to drink all day anyway (we had a couple of drinks each day)...it wasn't worth the worry to sneak booze onboard. Many of them did, and they didn't get caught either.But some of them got caught on other cruises and had to do the "walk of shame"...giggle.....
FAT CALORIES (Poetry) - 5/16/2011 9:44:21 AM
Giggle.....don't diet....try Zumba! I absolutely LOVE it! And you burn 600 to 800 calories per hour. Lively latin music, latin dancing....it's awesome! Diet schmiet!!! giggle
DON'T (Poetry) - 5/16/2011 9:42:08 AM
Truth! I think family and friends only have our best interests in mind, but they sometimes forget we "do" have our own minds. Enjoyed this, Donna!
MUSIC STARTS MY DAY (Poetry) - 5/16/2011 9:39:35 AM
I do exactly the same thing, Donna. Ever since I was a child I awakened every morning with a different song in my head that I proceeded to sing throughout the day! I can't explain it! But ... giggle....my grown-up daughter recently admitted to me that now she does the same thing...genetics? Music is life, love and laughter for me....Loved this uplifting poem! Just found out about you in one of Richard's poetry comments. Glad I did!

The moral is wise to say the least.
DON'T (Poetry) - 4/30/2011 11:02:26 AM
Think you probably forgot some don’ts between the "...Don't sign up for internet dating..." one and the "...Don't move in with that A--hole." one, but then again, who's counting?
Enjoyed this one, Sweetie. Thanks Dick
DON'T (Poetry) - 4/29/2011 2:25:36 PM
Yes, I think life is about making decisions on our own, we can listen and hear what others think but basically we must make our own choices for better or worst. You go girl...
DON'T (Poetry) - 4/29/2011 7:51:54 AM
You should always make your own adult decisions. If you are in GOD's grace only good will come from it. Excellent writing, Donna.
DON'T (Poetry) - 4/29/2011 6:43:17 AM
Donna, two things come to mind that could be true. One, the first words children hear is "No"...I've thought what a strange concept to start a child's thinking with a negative word. Two, as we age we discover that the reason we've reached where we are in life is because we go through a constant process of starting over, making "Life" a real adventure. You have provided wise thinking in your words.

MUSIC STARTS MY DAY (Poetry) - 4/22/2011 11:08:01 AM
I love music, and I love singing....I will often times catch myself inattentively crroning a ditty from long ago I thought I had forgotten. Unfortunately, some of my friends always suggest I sing "tenor...." ten or twelve miles away! I ingorew them...

Heartfelt and poignant.
CHAZ (Poetry) - 4/15/2011 7:11:02 AM
Talk about a "DOGS LIFE" - Would that we all could have this much love flowing our way, but then again, I'd probably get in trouble if every time my "master" left me alone I slipped over to the neighbor lady. Good one girl.
SHE WAS HIS GIRL (Poetry) - 4/15/2011 7:03:38 AM
Sweet lady, this is a truly fantastic write. I agree with Chip, the memories you've shared with this and earlier postings speak to the healing you have managed to accomplish and the sweetness of those memories. Nicely done.
SHE WAS HIS GIRL (Poetry) - 4/15/2011 6:09:56 AM
A heart touching American love story Donna.
SHE WAS HIS GIRL (Poetry) - 4/14/2011 5:42:21 PM

SHE WAS HIS GIRL (Poetry) - 4/14/2011 4:03:44 PM
Wow! Great story of love! May the memories always guide you.
SHE WAS HIS GIRL (Poetry) - 4/14/2011 9:18:24 AM
Unfortunately, that's all too familiar a story. I wish it didn't have to be so. At leasst there will be memories to go with the tears. The sorriest person is thenone who has tears but no memories to sweeten them.
FAT CALORIES (Poetry) - 3/26/2011 10:41:23 AM

I love dogs and understand exactly what you are saying. Mine is named Zoe.
CHAZ (Poetry) - 3/17/2011 10:44:21 AM
Cute poem. It is hard for me to call a dog an animal but, they are not humans although they have more personality than some humans and they are almost always cute and so hard to resist cuddling. Great poem.
GREEN BOLOGNA (Poetry) - 3/5/2011 5:20:04 PM
I am not a big poetry fan, but I liked that.

Well, you certainly have a knack at discerning the calorie facts. No one can deny that you ate 40 skinny calories. Keep up the good work!
FAT CALORIES (Poetry) - 2/12/2011 12:27:33 PM
Cute poem. I'm sure we've all broken our New Year's resolutions to lose weight by now. Me too! Take care.

Smart thinking, Donna. Thank you for sharing this delightful and unique perspective. Love and best wishes,

that's everyday math that works for me :) ~ Morgan
FAT CALORIES (Poetry) - 2/11/2011 3:42:48 PM
Can't argue with that logic, do that every day and in a week you're up to 280 skinny calories. NOW YOU'RE TALKING!!!! THH
FAT CALORIES (Poetry) - 2/11/2011 3:37:19 PM
You know I think the fat in calories is all a scam! There is no proof of anyone die because of fat in calories. JMHO.
GREEN BOLOGNA (Poetry) - 2/9/2011 10:47:02 AM
I actually ate green bologna once. But I was in my twenties and should have known better. I didn't need the soap to achieve the same result. Duh. Patrick
GREEN BOLOGNA (Poetry) - 2/9/2011 8:38:32 AM
Nicely written, sweet lady. I happen to know that she was your only sibling and, even after all these years, how much you still miss her. Being skilled enough to put those thoughts on paper would seem to help. So too, does the fact that you have two loving kids who maintain contact on a daily basis. (your daughter for seemingly hours every day.) You've a lot to be thankful for. (and so do I) Thanks for sharing your life with me. Dick
GREEN BOLOGNA (Poetry) - 2/8/2011 10:15:43 AM
That was so funny...yet so sorrowful at the end. I wasn't logged in, but had to tell you what I thought of this fantastic family tale. I still have tears in my eyes from the ending.
GREEN BOLOGNA (Poetry) - 2/8/2011 10:09:36 AM
It is so unfair to lose a sibling younger than you. I miss my sisters too but for a different reason. It seems Anita was your pride and joy sister, a pain, a sweetheart, someone to talk to, someone to play with. Take the good memories and run with them, and just laugh be happy because that is what she would want you to be. Thank you for sharing.
May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your den sister, Barbie

GREEN BOLOGNA (Poetry) - 2/4/2011 9:13:05 AM
You gave your sister what she wanted and that happened to be moldy bologna. You didn't force it down her throat she ate it herself. This is a really cute poem Donna! Your sister will be with you forever in your heart. Take care, ~Chessly

GREEN BOLOGNA (Poetry) - 2/4/2011 5:17:22 AM
Oh sisters I remember my older one almost killing me!! Gave me a smile Donna. I know you must miss her.
GREEN BOLOGNA (Poetry) - 2/4/2011 3:28:17 AM
It is funny how we look back at our sibling memories and smile at the funny things that we did or said as children. I came from a large family four brothers and sisters shared our home and two have already left our circle but in my heart they are always close.
GREEN BOLOGNA (Poetry) - 2/3/2011 7:37:43 PM
Nice as well sad, memories of childhood, as long as you have those memories, you can never become old...
GREEN BOLOGNA (Poetry) - 2/3/2011 7:36:51 PM
That ending was so sad...how quickly the pages turn in our lives...and we have to ask where did it all go? Beautiful work.

Like the way you've handled this, Sweetie. It certainly was a sad time for you and those to whom you are so close. We all grieve from time to time, you've certainly done her proud with these words and those from an earlier time. Kudos Dick
