Flash in the Pan – Ripple

“Yes, sweetie? Did you bring the hairbrush?”

“Do you gots some more Peanut Butter Ripple Brownies?”

“Uh-huh—such pretty hair—why do you ask?”

“Um, can I have some in my lunch?”

“No, Lily, peanuts are not allowed at school, remember?”


“How about after school—come, let’s get your coat.”

Author: Let's CUT the Crap!

I'm getting a little LONG in the tooth and have things to say about---ouch---AGEing. I believe it's certainly a state of mind but sometimes it's nice to hear that you're NORMAL. I enjoy reading by the truckload. I'm a grandma but I don't feel OLD although I'm not so young anymore. My plan is to stick it out as long as I can on this lovely planet and only will leave it kicking and screaming!
