When Boobs Attack!

Boobs. Hooters. Ta-tas. Nah-nahs. Melons. Jugs. Headlights. Honkers. Rack. Chi-chis. Bosoms. Gazingas. Honkers. The Girls. The Twins. Tits. Pillows. Fun bags. Bumpy bits. There are hundreds of names for them, some more respectful than others.  But whatever they are called, everyone has a thing for breasts.  Women love them because of how they fill in their […]

Ice Cream Weather Is Here! Grab A Sweater!

As cooler weather has started blowing in, everyone is extolling the virtues of stew, chili, and pots of soup.  And the folks that aren’t cooking those, are cooking apple this and pumpkin that.  What’s wrong with that, you ask?

Rainbows, Queens and Fairies…….My Big Gay Blog Post

I am not out to offend anyone out there, gay straight or otherwise….I am just asking that we all treat everyone else with dignity and respect, despite our differing views on this (or any) topic.  I am not asking homophobes to embrace their gay brethren, or support gay marriage.  I am not asking my gay […]

Beans, Beans, The Musical Fruit

So, up until this point, my husband has managed to escape any real significant embarrassment in my stories.  Oh, I have talked about how we met, and his less than adventurous culinary tastes.  I may have mentioned a drunken party foul or two, and I DID post that picture of him in yellow tights.  But […]

Fiestas, Jamborees, Roundups and Thumps

One should not live anywhere in the south without seeing or experiencing some of the many agricultural events that celebrate their area’s farming bounty. Since the southern culture is so deeply rooted in its farming and agricultural history, just about every county has one or more fairs, festivals, or other community events designed to celebrate […]
