It’s Not All Bon-Bons and Smiting

I used to think that the person who pulled juries for trials was just some bored gal/guy sitting in an office tossing darts at a name board and eating bon-bons. I figured that once she/he had a bunch of names, she/he would send out summons and their job was done. She/he would then sit around with nothing to do until the next trial. Maybe take long lunches, go shopping or golfing or something. They had the power to make quite a few folks dislike them in a short period of time.

Two White Girls With Shovels

It has been a while since I have been on a Rez run with my friend, Sheri. That changed with an unexpected little jaunt to the reservations on Monday.  I just want to warn you that this is not pretty, it has rare moments of black humor and back to sad again.  The whole day we kept talking about what I should put in my blog and how this is going to be in two parts because it was a very long day. This is also a longer than normal post for me. There is a part two and I'll post that another … [Keep reading...you know you want to!]

Times They Are a Changing

The past ten years have been a wild ride and it looks like it isn't over yet. I moved to Montana from Minnesota about ten years ago. I was scared, lonely, and bewildered. Depression had pretty much ruined my life.  Moving to Montana was only to be a temporary thing.  I was going to clear my head and then move back. I didn't quite work out that way. Mr. Bernie and I became a couple. We worked together. We became involved in the community. We got married. We bought a house. We took trips. We … [Keep reading...you know you want to!]

Wordless Wednesday

Hey Gang, its a new Wordless Wednesday Vintage Ad!! I have seen quite a few weird and bizarre ads but this one really gave me pause. How many men read it and thought?.... "How did they know? I was going to off Helen tonight. I guess I should buy life insurance." Some of the selling points to not killing your wife: "After many hours of work could you face hours of housework?" "Could you be an executive by day and a chambermaid by night?" "Could you afford 2,ooo pounds a year for a cook?" … [Keep reading...you know you want to!]

My lovely flowers from my "Coffee Girls"

Dogs, Flowers and Ghosts. Oh, My!

I survived my first day of my new job. I’m mentally exhausted but it’s a good exhausted. I feel as if I have A LOT to take in. Today was kind of like the first day of school. You meet a few kids, you get a tour of the building and then someone shows  you […]

Did Someone Say Jury Duty?

Here we are in the middle of the week and I have survived. I have learned some things that I never thought I would ever learn in my lifetime. For example: I never knew I would wear eyeshadow with colors like, Mildew, Oil Slick and Polyester Bride. Who knew? I have not had to actually […]
