Flamingo’s Fixin’ to Fly!

Flamingo is a chameleon! I first got her in Miami at the “Pink Palm” gift shop. She was a shining beauty, but not cheap. I promised myself I would buy her as a reward after my next real estate sale when I worked for Majestic Properties in South Beach. All the closings […]


Do We Still Need the Post Office?

  The good folks of Green Valley Lake say, “Yes!” As a recent visitor to Green Valley Lake, and soon-to-be temporary resident, I couldn’t agree more. I had gone through a lot of trouble to carefully package some books. These were important packages to me and to the people waiting […]

Leavin’ on a Jet Plane… Maybe! 3

I was packed and ready to fly. I had spent days preparing for the airline reunion in Atlanta – a gathering of “Stewardesses of the 1960’s and 70’s.” Yes, there is such a group! In fact we have over 7,000 members! Nancy Duke, the organizer of this “first annual,” had […]

Is the Child Still Wild Without the Feathers? 20

This is my signature wine glass. It was given to me by my generous and thoughtful friend, Lynn. I had admired her collection of bling wine glasses including the stunning “Mermaid” glass. We both loved that one so much we’ve been known to get into a tug-of-war over who gets it. […]
