Dorothy’s Place: The 25 Pound Pumpkin

  By Dorothy Denne Holidays tend to bring back memories.  Saw some Halloween decor yesterday that brought this one back to me. There was a huge pumpkin sitting on my back porch being baked in its skin by the hot morning sun.  It was part of my fall season outdoor decor. I don’t usually do…

Dorothy’s Place: Snippets

  By Dorothy Denne Desktop cleaning time again.  I share with you little snippets I have clipped or copied or thought up to use some day.  Today is the day.  No theme, no organization, just random as I come to them. 1) The sky and the sun are always there.  It’s the clouds that come…

Dorothy’s Place: A Stroke of Genius

Aachoo

    By Dorothy Denne I wish I had invented tissues and had a life-time patent on them. I’d be making myself rich even if no one else bought any. Does allergy season ever end? I know I shouldn’t be moaning and complaining, but I’m sweating and my eyes are watering and my nose is…

Old Friends, Old Priorities

By Dorothy Denne I bumped into an old friend this morning. Well, not literally but we did give each other a hug. He and I used to volunteer for the same group, so we saw each other several times a week. Then life pulled us in different directions for different reasons and our visits became…

Mad as Hell

By Dorothy Denne My friend is mad as hell and doesn’t want to take it anymore, but there isn’t much she can do about it. She has once again witnessed humanity’s unwillingness to be humane – she saw two tiny kittens dumped to their destiny. It will not be a happy destiny. Their little lives…
