(Show Details...)
Bloggers Photo I was born and raised in northern California in the land of the glorious redwoods. My father worked in the lumber industry and my brother and I had a simple but wonderful childhood. Off to the big city to become a nurse and all these years later I still am. I was married for many years, have 2 grown boys and 2 young grandsons..Jordan and Elliot. Me proud? You betcha..it truly is the best thing about growing older. On my own now and enjoying all that I can cram into my life. I love music.. am a life long member of The Friends of Jose Carreras..poetry and music are my loves.I am a technaphobe..so bear with me while I figure this all out.

    I sure hope I'll have time to think of something,Barbara. There are several I have not been able to get around to because of how busy I have been. Merry Christmas! Luv, Andrea

    It takes a big person to apologise, so I think you will get some amazing poems for your contest~~

    Maybe Larry Belt will apologize to his mother-in-law. Or perhaps she will apologize to him. "Funny or humorous" sounds good to me, LNC. We could use some laughs this time of year. Merry Christmas. I'll be watching the mail for my slice of pie. LOL Love, Carolyn

    Will ponder this one .... hopefully won't have a reason to apologize to anyone over the holiday, but with big family gatherings, anything could happen!!! LOL !!! Merry Christmas Barbara...., may your New Year be filled with many entries to your contest, and many wonderful things!! Enjoy your holiday! Love, Carrie
