It's the most wonderful time of the year.....for watching television.  These are my favorite Christmas shows in no particular order.

 White Christmas:  How can you not fall in love with a movie produced in technicolor and VistaVision?  This movie is a classic because of the many different messages it spreads to the world; music heals,friendships endure, love prevails, and eating disorders have been around for a long time.  Have you seen the teeny-tiny waist ...

1) The Jeep wave:  I was told about the Jeep club before I bought Ruby my red Jeep Wrangler who I love and adore so much by a fellow jeep owner.  This club was unknown to me. What happens is whenever you pass another jeep they do the one finger lift wave. It's true. Although the other Jeep models don't seem to be active members. It's wrangler to wrangler.

2.) When my puppy Goldberg has to poop he engages in the most amazing arch I have ever seen. He contorts himself into a giant ho...

Autumn is foreplay. It's the time of year to fall in love.


It's the season which seduces and inspires you to be joyful, care free and thankful for what life offers. This season brings mystery, magic and romance.  Heck, Halloween wouldn't be right in any other time of year. Would it?

Remember when you stood face to face with your lover and there was only the space of a fallen maple leaf between you ? Do you remember looking into their eyes then tracing your finger down the s...

It's no secret I love our piece of land on the side of a mountain. This piece of real estate gripped my heart and won't let go. Someday, it will be our home. I hate the word someday. Like the little girl from Willy Wonka, Violet Beauregarde says," I want it and I want it NOW!" The only thing holding us back from making the move is work. Times are tough for employment up in the mountains. Plan B, make your own job.

During the summer the men folk would take...

This weekend is opening weekend for archery hunting and my two guys are ready to go. If you have been following along with the Deer Hunter saga you now I’ve been having quite a bit of fun at their expense. Well, folks the time has come. Nope, they didn’t get a deer yet, but my husband’s shot has improved monumentally. I’m a little nervous.

As we left Spokane Friday night the first snow of the season was falling. We thought for sure there would be a lot up in Kettle...

Inflation or a resort town?

I took the summer off from JU and Faux-Toe Journalism was born. It was a fun way for me to put up pictures which really don't have a category. You can make your own headline or just look at it and shrug your shoulders. Below are the links for Faux-Toe Journalism: 1 and 2.

(Another October Memory)

"Kelly, do you have something to share with the class?" Mrs. Henrickson asked. 

I stopped talking to the kids at my table and looked up at this four foot nine, hundred year old  monster who made my third grade hell, or maybe I made her year hell. Either way our feelings for each other were mutual, kind of. She hated me and I felt like she was always interrupting my conversations.

"Yes. My birthday is coming up and I'm going to have a ballerina cake...

It's been a month since I've written anything. The past month, make that summer has been a whirlwind of fun and games and believe it or not nobody had their eye poked out. We have hiked, fished, went to the ocean on the coast of Washington, survived little league and now it's time to prepare for the grid iron of the YMCA.  I had a lot of fun doing the prize package give aways and the one coming up for October is going to be the best so far. If you think the genuine ...

Hey JU!

I just wanted to pop in and check on everyone. That is if anyone remembers me.

I hope everyone had a good 4th of July and ate lots of BBQ, saw fireworks and had fun with friends in family.

Bye for now. See you in the fall.
