A Blessed Child, Indeed!
“If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies.” - Nadine Stair ~ Jana enjoying a 1913 Herschell-Spillman Classic Wood Carousel, Henry Ford Greenfield Village, Detroit, MI in 2009!
Mrs. Milligan was my high school teacher at Byng. She taught me typing, shorthand (if my memory serves me right), English Lit (Beowulf...YIKES), and poise (not a class period for this, just watch & learn). She had high hopes for me and the Class of 1970!

Happy New Year!Lounging today watching the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN); which is kind of different for me.Don’t get me wrong, I like Oprah—but I’ve never been what you would call an “Oprah Fan.” Don’t know why, but in 25 years I don’t think I’ve seen 25 episodes of The Oprah Winfrey Show.OWN—now that’s groundbreaking stuff and my affection for all things that promote the upward mobility of women & girls compels me to discover what Oprah’s new NETWORK will put forward!From what I see, it is going to be Pretty Darn Good!I can see myself falling to sleep with OWN—Cox Channel 106 in the OKC—and blogging about what I see, hear, and FEEL!
Yes, I am starting out the New Year blogging.Not a resolution, just a good jumping off (or is it ON???) point for something that I enjoy that I have been away from for far too long.Despite the fact that today I feel like a KIDNEY STONE may be in my near future, I feel SO MUCH BETTER! Not only do I look forward to updating my blog on a regular basis, but also keeping up with my favorite blogs & bloggers. Likewise, I look forward to reading your thoughts concerning my posts and sharing my thoughts with regard to yours! I’m also thinking about redesigning my blog, but we will see.Nothing too ambitious for now.
Happy 2011 & I look forward to “spending a bit of time with you” in the coming year! Peace!
