These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

  1. This has been a fun meme--I got to run into some old friends while hopping around to read them.

  2. Wow, 67 on Thursday! An advance happy birthday to you! Hats off to you, who has caught up with technology at your age.

    Gold and Silver are both good colors. I especially like Black and Gold and Silver and Black!

    That is a great quote from Sandra Bullock.

  3. This was fun reading, even though I knew most of the answers already. I love the quote you used and I love the movie Hope Floats. It always makes me cry especially when her ex husband comes for the funeral and the little girl is crying as he drives away.

  4. Happy Birthday to you!

    I love silver and turquoise also. You live in a perfect place to find a lot of it.

  5. Karen, whatever it takes, right? :)

    Halfcrazy, thanks! Black is the perfect color for most jewelry, isn't it?

    Caroline, I know, that scene breaks my heart. So sad.

    RET, thanks! I do live in the right place, but I don't need to find any more! I can't wear all I have now!! LOL1

  6. Happy Birthday!!
    This is an interesting meme. I may try it.

  7. SVB, DO IT! Let me know when you do.

  8. I'm definitely a gold and silver together girl! Comes from being told not to mix them when young. A bit like never wearing black/brown/navy mix. Nowadays I do what I fancy.

  9. Freda, a bit of a rebel, are ya?? Yep, me, too. And its so easy now days! Age does have privilege, doesn't it? [grin]

  10. What fun!!! I will have to do this.


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
