Guilty Pleasures

Today, I did the unthinkable. I turned off my phone. Originally, the intent was to fully recharge it, but when charging was complete, I was so enjoying the blissful quiet, and the freedom to think other thoughts than just employment.....well, I left it off all day long. I took my daughter window shopping, and we stopped for milk shakes at Steak 'n' Shaker Happy Hour. I even found time for an afternoon nap, which the dogs were more than happy to share with me. It was a truly liberating experience, and I have no intention of checking voice mail or email or anything else until sometime tomorrow-maybe......

    What can I say? I like to be the devil's advocate. Keeps the conversation lively, and is also fun when dealing with people who think that they know it all. I surely don't know it all, but I am always observing, always learning, always growing and evolving. The one thing that I have learned is that the absurdities, inequities, and ironies of life are best absorbed with a huge dose of humor. I tend to be somewhat irreverent and possibly a bit sarcastic, although not always intended to be so. I am camera phobic, which is why I elected to have the innocent and adorable puppy repesent me for the moment. For many years, I have been the family photographer, because if I am taking the pictures, I am not in them. Didn't realize that there are no recent pictures, other than the DMV disaster. So Cute Puppy will be representative of my playful nature. Feel free to drop me a line:
