"ANIMALS... in a world far older than ours, finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, live by voices we shall never hear." -Henry Beston 1928

I'd rather be a could-be
if I cannot be an are;
because a could-be is a maybe
who is reaching for a star.

I'd rather be a has-been
than a might-have-been, by far,
for a might-have-been has never been,
but a has was once an are.


"The biggest myth about Southern women is that we are frail types, fainting on our sofas. Nobody where I grew up ever acted like that. We were about as fragile as coal trucks." -Lee Smith

My Bud ~Beth777~ is my emergency contact. We met online
in the 'Southern Women' group about 20 yrs ago.

    My name is Diane, but go by 'di'. DH and I have been married 53yrs; have a son, retired USN; daughter, school teacher; blessed w/5 grandchildren, including twins. I'm Kentucky Bluegrass-born, but Alabama has been home x50+yrs. ROLL TIDE!
    We're down to just one critter now. Li'l girl Darby is a 1yo Turkish Van. (We'd never heard of that one!) She is still very much a kitten, w/an attitude that keeps us in a state of alert, or maybe panic:) Our vet, who we adopted her from, gave us no warning, but after less than a week we knew something was up. I googled her breed temperament and the first paragraph included, "Put away breakables if you have a Turkish Van in the house." umm... Too Late. lol Our tabby cats were always sane! It's an adventure with lotsa love, and our Darby aka "Dobbie-Dobbie".

I love... a child's soft kiss, lunch w/friends, the silence of falling snow, playing Yahtzee with DH and g'kids, stillness of deep woods, puppy breath, cat purrs, four-part harmony, Appalachian mountain range, wintertime & snow, University of Alabama Crimson Tide football season; genealogy research, the computer and all its gadgets, apps, widgets and toys, and my ancient PSP7.04

SUMMER and it's heat, humidity, mosquitoes, gnats, chiggers, fleas, ticks, wasps, hornets, flies and AC bills.

I hope your Tuesday is going well for you. Here, it is sunny and cheery but quite sticky. Humidity is not our friend. But summer is near its end so we will just bide our time. I enjoyed the eclipse yesterday but since I didn’t have the special glasses, I watched it on our local tv station. So beautiful. The sky took on an eerie sort of glow. My grandsons all had eclipse glasses and were looking forward to it. Have a terrific day, Di. We’ve made it through another Monday so we can handle anything, right?

Happy Hugs~
