Fun Friday: Oh, little one…

A theme that runs through my books is the extraordinary lengths some parents will go, to protect their children, so this video is for me, particularly heart-warming. I hope it tugs your heart strings, too. Happy Friday. Deborah Time is the longest distance between two places. ~Tennessee Williams

Fun Friday – I Dare You

One of my mom’s favourite stories of me as a child was the time she, as a safety-conscious parent with a toddler in tow on a busy sidewalk, strapped a harness on me. It went something like this… Happy Friday, everyone. I hope you enjoy a fabulous last weekend of March! Deborah The first step …

Fun Friday: Home and Heart

I don’t know what it’s like where you live, but where I live it’s been a cold, dreary winter. Having cats cuddle on my lap, or entertain me with their silly antics, eases the chill and provides not a few chuckles. Pets really do brighten a home and heart. Happy Friday, Everyone! Deborah Let us …

Fun Friday – Did I or Didn’t I?

Last Friday I promised to share whether I rode a horse last week, or this week, and the answer is… No. I didn’t. Last week, after my Barn Betty shift, I groomed a lovely Arab mare, Princess; this week a winter storm kept me off the road until evening, and by then the horses were …
