Happy Jolebration Day! Today my BFF, Johannah Cantrell, would have celebrated her birthday. As per my tradition, I'm back to share fun facts & stories about Jo.

A quick blog update:

I have been eyeball-deep in major home renovations since August 2018.

They were supposed to be completed by Thanksgiving of 2018.


I'm not really laughing - I'm trying not to cry. 

It's August 2019 and we STILL haven't finished the reno.


It may seem like I a...

Once upon a time—1981 to be exact—Princess Leia (indirectly) saved my life. At that time, I was a poor college student at West Virginia University.

Today is Jolebration Day 2019; the day I celebrate and remember my BFF on her birthday. The beloved, wild and zany Johanna Cantrell would have turned 60 today

Once upon a time my BFF, Sheila, was a youthful, carefree soul.  But lately I think she's having a Best-Friending Crisis. During our teenaged years, I could count on Sheila to be game for all sorts of mad hijinks.  We once (okay, twice) climbed over the wall of Keith Richards' infamous Redla...

Today I Commemorate The Second Annual Jolebration Day; Celebrating the Late, Great, Johannah Cantrell! Today would've been her 59th birthday . . .

The Pitchapalooza Experience: Before, During & After Part One: Prepping to Pitch I hate to start a post by tooting my own horn, but I must admit that I was totally prepared to pitch at Pitchapalooza. At least, that's what I thought before I actually, you know, pitched!

Last summer, my husband and I made our first trip to Wales and that's when I learned that we have been spelling Wales wrong; I'm pretty sure it is spelled "Wails", but the Welsh don't want any outsiders to know. Allow me to share my newly-obtained, firsthand knowledge about &qu...

My husband and I have had more than one skirmish over the dinnerware that has made it's way into our home during our 30+ years of marriage. (Haven't we all?) Our latest conflict was in regards to cutlery (the most dangerous kind of kitchen conflict because it involves sharp, pointy objects).

Just like the Rolling Stones, we are looking through the past darkly . . . Well, actually we are looking through the window of the Hampton Coliseum where we first saw the Rolling Stones live in 1978.

After finally seeing Blade Runner 2049, I'm pretty sure my BFF is a replicant! For the last few years, I have noticed some strange behavior in my best friend.  First of all, she has begun talking like a robot!  For real!  She even sounds more robot-y than Siri!  On many occasions we have been dr...

I'm excited for 2018 for a myriad of reasons. Not the least being that I came across an online rumor that the Rolling Stones were going to perform in Scotland!

I have been compiling A Christmas list for my Younger Self.  It is a bittersweet process.  Most of us can remember that Christmas when we didn't get that special thing that we asked for.

The Trick or Treat Question of the Day: Is October 31st good for your skin? Answer: YES. (But only if you wore a mask.) See? Look at my glowing skin! Oh wait! That's a TRICK. My mask was the wrong kind of mask. You need a FACIAL mask for glowing skin. But in my case, even a facial mask won&...
