My Car

I have always taken pictures of the mileage on my car. If a number pops up that has a special meaning to me, I take a picture. If it’s a milestone for my car, I take a picture. 

Here is one I took over the weekend. 

How cool is this? 

Self Respect

I really need to read this to myself daily. 

Make it a great day!

R.I.P. Sir Roger Moore

Sir Roger Moore, the British actor best known for playing James Bond in the 1970s and 80s, died on Tuesday, May 23. He was 89.

He was the James Bond that I grew up watching.

Being Rude

Today I was accused of being rude to someone. I’ll admit, I was rude and I know better.  I should have taken the higher road and not behaved like that.

But I was thinking to myself, why was I rude? And I found this and it pretty much sums up what I was rude to that person. 

I was friends with this person for 3+ years and not any more. Really not sure what happens and  I really don’t care to find out what or why it happened. I said those three words “I trust you,” and it came back to but me in my ass 10-fold. 

I’ve been stupid in the past, trusting people over and over and I’m always on the short end of the stick. So I have become really good at cutting people out of my life.

This happenes to be the case here. But I need to realized being rude is not the answer.  If I see this person again, I will be nice and respond. But that’s it. Once I have been runned over by the bus a couple of times, I’m not going to be so open to any sort of “friendship.”

So lesson learned on my part. 


Well, I can check off a concert on My Bucket List… New Kids On The Block. I saw them with Boys II Men and Paula Abdul on Sunday, May 21st in Austin, Texas. 

I have always wanted to see them in concert and it’s taken me this long to do so. 

I brought the tickets anout six months ago and have been counting down the months and days till the concert. 

First up was Boyz II Men. They were as good as they were when they came out 25 years ago. They played their greatest hits. 

Then it was time for Paula Abdul. She looked great dancing on the stage with her dancers. 

Then it was time for NKOTB. OMG! That’s all I got to say about them. I can’t believe that this was the first time I’ve ever seen them in concert. 

They played all my favorites and the show was on of the bests I’ve ever seen. 

Here are some of the pictures from the concert I had really good seats for the concert. 

I am a forever NKOTB fan!

Slow Dance

Saw this and wanted to share it  

Make it a great day. 

Slow Dance 

This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer. She wants to see how many people get her poem. It is quite a poem, please pass it on. 

This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a New York Hospital.

It was sent by a medical doctor Make sure to read what is in the closing statement AFTER THE POEM.


Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?

 Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day on the fly?

When you ask, “How are you?”

Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed,

with the next hundred chores running through your head?

You’d better slow down

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short
The music won’t last.

Ever told your child, 

We’ll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste,

Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die 

Cause you never had time 

To call and say,’Hi’

You’d better slow down.

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won’t last..

When you run so fast to get somewhere,

You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,

It is like an unopened gift….

Thrown away.

Life is not a race.

Do take it slower

Hear the music

Before the song is over.


Dear All: 

PLEASE pass this mail on to everyone you know – even to those you don’t know!

It is the request of a special girl, who will soon leave this world due to cancer.

This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to live their life to the fullest, since she never will. 

She’ll never make it to prom, graduate from high school, or get married and have a family of her own.

By you sending this to as many people as possible, you can give her and her family a little hope, because with every name that this is sent to, the American Cancer Society will donate 3 cents per name to her treatment and recovery plan. One guy sent this to 500 people! So I know that we can at least send it to 5 or 6.

 It’s not even your money, just your time! Please read n forward …

Just What I Needed To Hear 

I was on my way home tonight, after a long day at work and this sang came on. 

Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right” is a song written by Bob Dylan in 1962, sung by Elvis Presley.

I’ve heard this sing many times before, but for some reason, tonight the song had more meaning to me. 

Leave it to Elvis to turn my bad day into a good night.
