A vial of truth serum….

You’ve come into possession of one vial of truth serum. Who would you give it to (with the person’s consent, of course) — and what questions would you ask?

If I had truth serum, I wouldn’t use it at all. And I will tell you why. There is a reason why we do not always know when someone is telling the truth. What if we found out the truth, and it was even worse than not knowing? Sometimes naivety is a blessing in disguise. Seriously, what do you think would happen to the world, or even just to you, if absolute truth was known about certain things? This thought came to mind right away. “You can’t handle the truth!” From the movie A Few Good Men.

One Lovely Blog Award



Thank You “Send Sunshine”  for the nomination to the, “One Lovely Blog Award,” you are a hard act to follow.  

These Seven Things…….

  1. I have retired after a long and fulfilling career in the U S Air Force. When I joined there were not many woman in. I was the second group of females who got to wear fatigues and group shirt to do PT. Before that the females had a special outfit. I got to wear combat boots instead female low quarters. These were tie shoes in black with an 1″ heals. I would have not changed anything about joining.
  2. I met my husband in California I was from Michigan and he was from San Antonio TX. A great guy from the south. He had me when he said “how ya’ll doing” the cowboy boots and hat. 
  3. I have a great family. My father was in the Navy then the Air Force. He was a tail gunner in the Korean War. I was a military brat.
  4. I have four siblings. My oldest brother is blind and my oldest sister has Cerebral Palsy. They both have taught me so much about life and the love of family. 
  5. Before I joined the military I was a butcher. Our family owned a small party story and fresh meats store. My blind brother taught me how to cut meat and clean deer. 
  6. My family is very important to me. My husband Justin is my second husband and the best thing that has happened to me. He brought to me three step children. 
  7. I have learned that never put off what you could do today. Life is short and don’t forget to let your love ones know how they are so important to you because they may not be here tomorrow .
  8. I have learned that after being sick I learned to let others help you and put my ego aside.

Life goes on or stay locked in the past.


 I found this article that really made me think about things I could change to make life easier and better.

If you want to fly and move on to better things, you have to give up the things that weigh you down – which is not always as obvious and easy as it sounds.

Starting today, give up…

Letting the opinions of others control your life. – People know your name, not your story. They’ve heard what you’ve done, but not what you’ve been through. So take their opinions of you with a grain of salt. In the end, it’s not what others think, it’s what you think about yourself that counts. Sometimes you have to do exactly what’s best for you and your life, not what’s best for everyone else.

The shame of past failures. – You will fail sometimes, and that’s okay. The faster you accept this, the faster you can get on with being brilliant. Your past does not equal your future. Just because you failed yesterday; or all day today; or a moment ago; or for the last six months; or for the last sixteen years, doesn’t have any impact on the current moment. All that matters is what you do right now. More

Daily Prompt I thought I would try this out.

Make It Count – Daily prompt

You’ve been given the opportunity to send one message to one person you wouldn’t normally have access to (for example: the President. Kim Kardashian. A coffee grower in Ethiopia). Who’s the person you choose, and what’s the message?

To someone on a deserted island.

If you had a chance to return home would you go or would you stay?

The love of my dog…..

When  I come home I always know that I will receive at least 15 minutes of fame.

Dogs give you unconditional love. They don’t care if you had a bad day at work, if you’re sad, grumpy, happy, or anything else. They just want to be with you, to love you and play with you. Dogs listen to everything we say when there is no one else around we can talk to. They follow us around the house, they’re always excited to greet us when we get home with a big kiss.

A mosaic of all

My favorite time of year. With cooler temperatures rolling in, saying goodbye to summer and hello to fall is not a hard thing to do. It’s a great time to break out the jackets, coats, boots, scarves and hats in preparation for the change in season.

It’s also the perfect time to start making hot cocoa, and lighting a fire in the fireplace. This season creates a sense of comfort, warmth and reflection.

It’s a great time to go camping, fishing, go on a road trip or anything else where you can spend quality time with family and eat good food.


Impossible, Improbable, Inevitable
