A Fish Tale...

My dad, grandfather and most of my Italian male relatives back in the 1950's were commercial fishermen, but not the kind you see today with all the high-tech equipment.  My dad would go out on the ocean for 10 to 14 days at a time, sometimes longer to...

Knock, knock...

No it's not "Knock wood for Rockwood" calling...It's me, TinkerHale!  I've been on the fast track lately trying to finish my "Fall" cleaning (yes, I'm still at it), picking up my daughter from work, picking up the slack when everyone else is trying to...

Spam Alert...

Is anyone getting Ads posted in their blogs along with Chinese writings from numerous sources?  I've had to block 6 people in the past 15 minutes for flooding my blogs!

Just Checking In...

It's in the 20's down here in ol' Gumpland and the new heater is working okay so far even though it looks like the Leaning Tower of Piaza.  The idiots that installed it claim it won't keep it from working properly.    Any how, I've been busy...

The Morning After...

By the Grace of God, we were all comfortable last night and for the first time in two weeks, we were warm instead of cold.    As I got ready for bed last night, I heard hubby's alarm clock go off around 11:30 PM.  I opened the bathroom door only...

Freaky Friday...

There's been a lot going on in our household since May 2014 from the stove not working, to pipes leaking and the motor in the furnace burning up and nearly catching fire.  I'm so glad that today is the last day of October and it's also Halloween.  ...

Good Night All!

Good night dear friends and may God hold each and everyone of you in the palm of His mighty Hand and keep you all safe.  Sweet dreams...;)

We Never Know...

Life can change with the next breath that we take.  Every night when hubby goes to work, I ask God to go with him and keep him safe. I kiss him, and tell him that I love him, and I wish him a good night.  He always says, "I'll see you in the...

On Stress Overload...

Well...I've completely lost the month of October...The past couple of weeks have been something else!  We weathered the horrendous storms that tore through here just fine.    On Monday, I had to go to the courthouse for a "juror summons."  I got...

What Can I Say?...

  I can't believe tomorrow is Friday!  We weathered the storms without any problem but here lately, it's been one darn thing after another.    A second round of antibiotics got rid of the residual infection in my jaw only to leave me with...

Another Glitch on Thoughts...

The little gray search window on the black thoughts bar doesn't work.  However, if you want to re-post something you've written last year, and can't access it in thoughts, use Google.  Put your handle in the Query section on Google, and the title of...

Laughter, Soul Food...

My kids and I are "book-a-holics".  We love books.  My daughter works at an antique store and she loves the smell of old leather bound books.  Actually, she's found quite a few treasures.  Her latest purchase, "The Book Of Quotes" by Barbara Rowes. ...

My Baby Dogs...

  The puppy on the left is what a snoodle (schnauzer/poodle mix) looks like and the puppy on the right is what a chiweenie (chihuahua/daschund) mix.  These pups are similar to what we have.   Now these pictures posted two different ways. ...
