Do you remember me? I sat upon your knee I wrote to you with childhood fantasies. Well, I’m all grown up now and still need help somehow not for myself, but for a world in need. No more lives torn apart That wars would never start And time would heal all hearts. Everyone would have […]

This month the last day conveniently falls on a Friday, so I get to kill 2 birds with one post on YMFT.Thus, the Friday Favorites list this week will be disguised as the LAST DAY LISTS (Link-Up attempt #3).  And it makes perfectly good sense to me, because lists are always my favorite.

Well, Thanksgiving’s over again.Put a fork in that sucker and keep movin’ along. It kind of surprises me when a major holiday comes and goes so uneventfully.  I feel like I should have enjoyed it more, made it more of a fanfare, but the truth is I don’t like Thanksgiving very much.  I kind of […]
