About Debra Squyres
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoHello to all:

I am called Debra from the great state of Louisiana. I started writing poems in 2010, though I had written a few as a young squirt many, many...years ago

I have trouble wrapping my mind around the idea that I might just be a poet...but as a writer of poems, perhaps I should accept the title given. 

I have had no formal training and it shows at times, though I do venture out of free verse sometimes to broad my skill and to also plump up a few brain cells lol

Punctuation is my nemesis (yes I had to look up the spelling lol) as well as spelling at times.  I offer my words to those who wish to read in hopes of leaving a smile, a thought, a new idea or simply a verse or two to make one smile. 

Blessings to each of you and many thanks to those who drop by my offerings of poetic verse. Know I will drop by your offerings as well.

Blessed be !! 

Spending time with my grands......

Hi Super Soupers !!

I'm taking care of my grandchildren this week.  Thanks for all the lovely comments and congratulations.  I promise to return the favor next week.  

Grandchildren are grand and I love them dearly.....

 ....... but this ole lady is having trouble keeping up with them, school work, remembering how to fix hair and put in bows. (6 yr and 7 yrs, Princess Diva's lol)  Tiny tantrums, wrong shoes, "that's not how Momma does it !!"   I miss my Mommy !!  .......ohh you get the gest of it...

Then top it off with a teen-age boy that is 15 going on 25 with an attitude.... LORD help me make it through the week !!

Congrats to all the winners on the Member's Contests !!

    It must be spring-break from school?? or maybe the parents are away for awhile? We are hands-on grandparents too, Debra...and our favorite thing to do is to have our grandkids dumped in our laps......but wow....it either keeps us young, or wears us out! But we sure do love them!!

    Enjoy, but it helps us realize that the full time part is for the younger parents. LOL

    Debra, this is a cute blog. I have two granddaughters that are so cute together, very close and acting like little princesses, and then their oldest brother, going on ten. boy, he used to drive me crazy before age 8. Turns out he was ADHD and the meds have calmed him down and now he is a really good student at school as well! Enjoy those little darlings. Don't know what to tell you on the teenager!
