My First Love 

VIVIDLY, I remember it like it was yesterday…

It was a sun-shinny day.  The trees were moving in the cool breeze and I could feel it gently touch my face.  The country ( which is what I fondly called it growing up) was six acres of land, a golf course on the left, Dairy Queen on the right and in between them sat the house my grandfather built.  It was such a beautiful and peaceful place.

 As I looked across the land, I couldn’t help but smile and sink into the cushions in the back seat of the car as grandpa sat in the front seat behind the wheel “Sunday driving” ( even though it was Saturday) and enjoy the long car ride into the city.    We finally arrive at our destination.  My grandpa parks the car and I like a jack-in-the-box I immediately jump out of my seat ready to go.

We walk inside the store.  Grandpa quickly makes his way to the far back right of the store.  Standing there starring and trying not to drool as my heart skips a beat in my chest, I’m frozen in place.  It felt like eternity, yet it was really only a few seconds.  My hand reaches  forward, we quickly connect and before I know it we lock lips..   🎵 You are soft and wet (oh, sugar) 


  🎵 You Make Me Feel Like Dancing     

And just like that, you were gone 😩  🎵 I thought what we had was over , ooh hoo Here We Go Again Grandpa turned my frown upside down and another dozen for the road home. Aaaaahhhhh, with a painted on smile upon my face, this is the life !

Once back at the house, that sugar natural high fueled me!  The grass needed to be cut. ” I wanna help!!”  I jumped onto his lap and off we went riding the lawnmower into the wind cutting  the grass.  Afterwards, grandpa walked to the side of the house in front of the rose garden.  I watched as he cut the middle of one rose stem, then another and another.  Holding now what looked like a bouquet of flowers, grandpa walked around the house, into the back door and handed them to my grandma standing there in the kitchen. She took them from him and just that fast, grandpa was gone.  

I still  had energy to burn.  Grandma takes a vase from the cabinet behind the door, lets me help her fill it with water and one by one put grandpa’s fresh, cut flowers into the vase.  I smell them before she puts the vase in the kitchen window.

Towards the end of the night, my high is fading. Grandpa walks into the kitchen, opens up the freezer door and takes out some ice.  He then opens the refrigerator door and pulls out a few items.  Then, I see  

I begin to dump, he begins to pour. Lastly, ice on top and time to turn.  Round and round, round and round we go!  We stop and take a peak a few cranks later.  Round and round we go again. Before you know it,  

 🎵 I got some ice cream!  I got some ice cream.  Wanna lick?  Mmmm, mmm good.  Grandpa throws in some fresh black cherries before he puts it in the freezer to harden.  In the meantime, we go down into the family room.  He turns on the television, sits down in his favorite chair across from the television, I jump into his lap and we watch his favorite show while waiting for ice cream.

An hour later…. 


I’m singing again 😀  You scream, he screams, we all scream for ice cream!     🎵 Such a happy, happy pair. Love beyond compare, look-a-there, look-a-there. Where am I? Back down memory lane.  

🎵 Let’s do it again.   

🎵 Summer, summer, summer time 
🎵 The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face…  

As I sit here this weekend reminiscing, I can’t help but say thank you national day calendar.  Thank you National Doughnut Day, thank you National Gardening Exercise Day and thank you National Chocolate Ice Cream Day.

🎵 Love so many things I’ve got to tell you , but I’m afraid I don’t know how 
Then, I realize my grandpa introduced me to my first love.

Grandpa (and sweets!)…

 🎵 I’ll Always Love You for the rest of my days.  You have won my heart and my soul with your sweet, sexy ways

Were You The Best Choice Or The Second Choice?

Being the best or second, yes is a choice. It’s a choice of settling or satisfaction. Where does your happiness stand? You can settle on satisfaction or be satisfied in your settlement. The choice is yours. Age may be nothing but a number, but I am not the one, two or three to fall in line. I always choose to be THE BEST. So, if I am not THE BEST, like someone once said, I “Keep it movin.”


Hey nosies!

A few weeks ago I turned 30…the big 3-0…flirty 30…dirty 30…doomsday. I’ve heard hundreds of people talk about 30 being a turning point in their lives. This was the year that I would evaluate all of my past mistakes and then spend all year trying to fix them…great .

Sure enough, like clockwork, I felt myself overwhelmed with reflection and regrets.  And seeing how I had just gotten out of a relationship (or the closest thing that I’ve ever had to one), the lack of love in my life was the first regret triggered.  Here I was, at the peak of my adult life with no possible “anyone” to start a future with.

Being the Taurus that I am, my brain immediately went into solutions mode.  How can I fix this?  How can I flip the script?  Hell…who could I recycle?  Like a torpedo, all of the men that I’ve ever dated came…

Change Is Good 

Change this. Change that.  Or, my favorite, 

 Why do people say that?  I say change is easier said than done.

Good Ole Faithful to the rescue!  While indulging in my “sweet and decadently rich man” isn’t a bad idea, I need to stay focused!  Gotta go to the bank!  The 

Come on S.B. (Shoe Bank)!  (Your) mama needs a new pair of shoes 😜

Shake!  Shake! Shake!  Grand total: $11.38  Great.  Now, let’s go shopping!  Ooh!

Hmmm.  Why not!  I get to the register and discover they are half off!   So, $19.99 is now $9.99?!😳  you mean two for the price of one?!

Well, what-a-ya-know!  Change IS good 😛 I think I’m going to give this change thing another try 😃
