Guys. I know. It’s been AGES since I posted but here’s the thing: my daughter wanted to make a Texas sheet cake yesterday and  when I went to Pinterest to look up the recipe my pin LED ME BACK TO MY BLOG. To the following post. A post from three years ago that — as […]

Seriously. Fill ‘er up, folks.  Why is today’s cougar-pour different from, say, yesterday’s cougar-pour you ask? Today I am 49. Shit’s getting real, folks.

Today is my birthday. Why, thank you. Thank you very much. When you get to be my age, which today is officially middle aged, you hear a lot of rhetoric about the years in your life and the life in your years; how you aren’t getting older but better and a lot of other crap that […]
