When Crabby Means Friends

Meet the Crabby Girls. We are a group of ladies that graduated from Seabreeze High School in 1971. We get together once a month for dinner.

Be a Barnabas

Sand Storm... that's what it looked like. Red sand blowing into our faces, making us thankful for our sunglasses. I laughed and told my husband that people pay good money for microdermabrasion treatments on their face and we are getting one for free!

Dusting off the Cobwebs

I don't dare look at the date of my last post. Probably a year!! Or maybe more. So much has gone on over the last 24 months. Rather than rehash my life, I am starting with just today. Last night I couldn't sleep. I have terrible Restless Leg Syndrome. I tossed. I turned. I got …

2017 ~ Mother’s Day ~ by susan werthem

Over the past week I have seen many posts from friends on Facebook about Moms. Most of my friends wrote of the loss of their Mother. My Mom went to be with The Lord in 1990. I was only 37. Although it seems like a century ago the emotional pain at times is still raw. …
