Fake Spring by P.A. Bennett

Flowers

Craving a vibrant burst of color as I come into my driveway, I planted two pots like this one for either side of the driveway. These are huge cement pots, and the flowers and other ornamental plants grew beautifully, welcoming me home every day. I was so pleased with my project. And then the big freeze came.

When Did You Stop Skipping? by P.A. Bennett

skipping

I was riding through a parking lot on my way to lunch recently. I noticed a lady with two small children. They were walking, probably to their car. She was holding hands with both of the children, one a girl, the other a boy. It looked as if they could be a grandmother and her grand kids.

A Mild Case of Hoarding by P.A. Bennett

Closet

For some reason, I find myself mesmerized by reality shows about hoarding. I watch them every chance I get. I’m very interested in mental health issues, so I reasoned that’s why I watch them. Still, I have to admit to myself that I feel a kindred spirit with hoarders.

Men and Their Big Boy Toys

Classic Car

It’s sleek and shiny. It runs better than the first day it rolled off the assembly line. It’s brand new from top to bottom. It’s a 1949 Cadillac! So how is it possible that a 65 year-old automobile is in such phenomenal condition?

Shoe Thing

Recent research suggests that men find women more attractive when women wear high heels, and the higher the better. Okay, ladies, will this phenomenal finding push you to wear sky-high heels, no matter the pain and discomfort?

The Best Gift Ever

Christmas Gift

You’re probably thinking about gift-giving this time of year. Getting the perfect gift for family members and friends can be a challenge. Personally, I hate buying gifts. Spending time and money on things people don’t really want or need is so wasteful. Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing people happy, and the right gift will do that.

Grandma

holidays

With the holiday season upon us, for some reason in the middle of the night, my thoughts went to how important grandmas were (are?) to the holidays. I say grandmas and not grandmothers because being a grandmother is a biological thing.  It happens when your child has a child. But being a grandma is something much more special.

Married During Lunch Hour (Nothing Like Clooney)

Marriage

My husband and I tell people we got married on our lunch break and went right back to work. And that’s the truth. There was no fanfare; just me, my soon-to be-husband, Greg and two nice ladies. One lady was the justice of the peace, the other a witness. We said our "I do"s, kissed and went back to our respective places of employment.

One More Thing to Worry About...or Not

farming, agriculture

Do you worry about the foods you eat? No, I’m not talking about the calories in those foods, or even the fat level. I mean do you worry if it’s really food from nature, or is it some manmade entity; a frankenfood or a GMO ( Genetically Modified Organism).

Snake Lovers Everywhere

snake

There are snake lovers everywhere. I sent out an e-mail asking for snake stories. I thought I’d get people wanting to tell me about frightening events, about how they were bitten or attacked by snakes. Boy was I as wrong as two left shoes. Most of the responders wanted to tell me how wonderful snakes are.
