2 Cent Tuesday – Maya Angelou

2 cent Tuesdays on Walkersvillemom

Sorry I’m a day late – story of my life…  nothing in the news caught my attention yesterday so I was going to skip it… then this piece of sad news came across my screen.  It’s a different kind of sad.  Different from the violence in Santa Barbara.  Different from the sadness that came over … Continue reading

Music Monday – Remembering Granddaddy Bill

Music Monday on Walkersvillemom

In my lifetime, I’ve gone through different stages when it comes to jewelry.  There was a time, in my early twenties, when I had rings for every finger.  I’ve had favorite bracelets, and a slew of watches to match different moods.  My ears are pierced, twice, and I used to love finding unique ways to … Continue reading

Soulful Sunday

You control your perspective

I’ve said before that I”m not comfortable asking for help.  I grew up watching my mother who was always in control – even, and especially when she wasn’t.   I guess some of that sunk in strangely because now I have problems posing even the most simple requests.  This week was certainly a lesson in humility … Continue reading

2 Cent Tuesday – Down syndrome & Prom Porn

2 cent Tuesdays on Walkersvillemom

There’s been a lot of talk about news articles that feature young adults who have Down syndrome and are nominated as Prom King or Queen.  One of my favorite blogger/writers, Professor David Perry sums up the criticism of these pieces in his articles about “sweetness porn.” I question the significance of voting kids with DS … Continue reading

Music Monday – “I’m a Bee Gees fan”

I Love the Bee Gees

      Yes, there you have it.  Ridicule if you must.  Trust me, I heard it all growing up.  Everyone loved to tease me about my love of the Gibb brothers – at this age, I don’t care anymore. So today’s video is one of my favorites “You Win Again.” First, there’s a great … Continue reading

Hot Dogs and Marmalade

Salty like hot dogs (and tears). Sweet like marmalade (and life).
