KEEP THE PONY!

          “When things get tough, the tough get going.” (- Jesse Dickson Jewell (Daddy))  “With all this s_____ , there must be a pony here somewhere” (- Janet Tallulah Jewell (me)).  “Is the glass half full or half empty?” (- I don’t remember).  My family was big on metaphors/cliches/similes, especially DaddyContinue reading “KEEP THE PONY!”

RED LETTER DAYS

I keep taking a step at a time and scaring myself each time.  Haha!  This week has been a “doozy” (Family expression), saying to myself, “Well, when Isis attacks Paris after the Battle of Normandy, I hope I am not shopping at Chanel that day!” I keep thinking that cooler heads will prevail. NOT.  A “friend”Continue reading “RED LETTER DAYS”

FAVORITE PHOTOSHOOT PHOTOS

Last Thursday, I did a SeaTrek and took a lot of photographs.  I posted some of them on last week’s Jayspeak, but I did not always select my favorites.  So, in this post, I am selecting my favorites – just for fun!  I have no criteria for which ones I include.  Just my own loveContinue reading “FAVORITE PHOTOSHOOT PHOTOS”

FRIDAY 13TH SEATREK, FINALLY!! aka “A Day in the Life”i

Last week, I took a break! There was a LOT going on in the world.  Yes, I was despondent (sigh), but I am back with renewed vim and vitality!!! Sorta.  So, on Friday, the 13th following 9/11, I decided to walk to the Sea whether I felt like it or not.  And, I was NOTContinue reading “FRIDAY 13TH SEATREK, FINALLY!! aka “A Day in the Life”i”

“THREE YEARS LATER – Remembering…

I know.  I know.  I said I was not going to write anything today.  And, here I am.  But, I have some thoughts that I want to share.  Plus, writing brings me comfort.  And, if you find this a tad “schmaltzy” (is that a word…), thank you in advance for bearing with me. Three yearsContinue reading ““THREE YEARS LATER – Remembering…”

MY BEST FRIEND

One Week from today, on August 31, 2016 (3 years ago), I lost my best friend.  His name was/is Steve Orlandella (August 11, 1950 – August 31, 2016).  Today, I plan to share some thoughts with you.  I won’t be writing about him next week.  I plan to use that day to remember.  Not write. Continue reading “MY BEST FRIEND”

UPDATE! HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS!

I am now back home, trying to get things back to “normal”.  I was gone for a month.  That is a long time for plants, cleaning, and a cat.  I was lucky enough to have a friend to look after the cat and to water the plants, but we had extraordinary heat hit the areaContinue reading “UPDATE! HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS!”

SOME RANDOM THOUGHTS ON A SUNDAY MORNING….

On a very small scale, I find myself thinking about the time I have left on this planet.  How will I spend it – “God willing, and the Crick Don’t Rise”.  I won’t live to see the death, doom, and destruction that many are predicting for this world.  Maybe. I am already seeing the resultsContinue reading “SOME RANDOM THOUGHTS ON A SUNDAY MORNING….”

THIS IS MY WORLD AND WELCOME TO IT – AGAIN!!!

In  my Universal Bubble here, I am into my third week of recovery at La Serena Convalescence Center here in Nice, France, after my second knee replacement surgery, on June 27, 2019. A bit of background to connect the dots (Remember Connecting the dots when you were a child?)  I had a knee replacement onContinue reading “THIS IS MY WORLD AND WELCOME TO IT – AGAIN!!!”

UPDATE – WONDERFUL MOMENTS aka MIRACLES! -“SIX DAYS IN JUNE, 2019”

YES!!  Six wonderful days in June!!  I loved every moment.  The arrival, the family dinners, and the farewell.  Those moments were precious to me.  Just knowing they were down the street was comforting to me.  Getting to hug them both.  Seeing their happy faces in the pictures they were posting for friends back home.  ItContinue reading “UPDATE – WONDERFUL MOMENTS aka MIRACLES! -“SIX DAYS IN JUNE, 2019””
