Me

A little about Me.

I am a country girl who also loves getting to wear my heels and dresses. I have three of the most beautiful girls, (which leads me to believe that it’s true that ‘the homeliest parents do make the best looking kids) My oldest daughter blessed me with three adorable granddaughters and one adorable grandson. To them I am Grami. But I only wear the title of Grami I don’t actually get to be one because they live two thousand miles away. I have always been referred to as bubbly, energetic, friendly and a people person but I prefer spending most of my time alone; I think I always have.

For my 8th birthday, my Gram, who called me her “brown-eyed beauty”, gave me two gifts. One was  Little Women by L.M. Alcott . T he second gift was a hot pink diary that locked. Receiving those two things, especially from my Gram, has always meant so much to me because after reading the story of Jo and her sisters I began to LOVE reading and I read every heart-felt book I could get my hands on. However, to this day Little Women is still my favorite novel! With the diary I discovered that writing  was something I really loved as well. I wrote short stories, I wrote about events in my life,  my dreams, hopes, and ideas. My journals were like having the most trustworthy friend you could tell anything .So no matter what was going on in my life, no matter where I live, what my age is or even how busy my life might be I will always write in my journals.

Blogging- when I discovered WordPress I was so excited because I thought this would be the perfect place for me to ‘write’  about things I would like to share . Either as a source for having my writing critiqued by others, or so that i might share interesting facts and data that I am certain others like me are not aware of. However,since  joining WP I have been inspired to do much more with my writing than originally intended . When i wrote DAD part 1 i was , in my mind, merely writing in my journal  and i was shocked, surprised and quite delighted at the positive response i received. It made me feel like i am truly a part of a wonderful community of bloggers, called WORDPRESS.  Thank you everyone.

Blame the Republicans! Blame the Democrats! Blame the Presidents!

I hear people saying all of the time that they blame the other party or one of the Presidents for the way things are for hardworking, taxpaying Americans.  But the ONLY one they can truly blame are themselves for allowing these things to happen. I am not into politics, and i do not understand what it means to be a democrat or a republican ; but i also don’t understand why ‘ it is OUR money but THEY get to spend it’? and  ‘why WE work for it yet THEY decide how to spend it’? ” WE”are the hard working true blue Americans who work a legitmate job who see the words gross and net on their pay stubs.  I’m boggled because if the person paying another persons wages is considered their employer, wouldn’t every person who’s wages we pay be our employee? Don’t the senators, mayors, congressmen and even the presidents work for US?  if so then why do THEY make all the decisions?  Why do THEY tell US what to do and how to do it?  Why is it that WE pay senators more than $200,000.00 a year  which would take most of us five years to make,  and we work more in a month then they do all year?  Do you ever stop to think about how much money we actually hand over to our politicians every minute of everyday?  Let’s say it’s your payday, so you get your check. you earned $2000  but THEY took 500 of it. Then you fill your gas tank up , you are paying tax per gallon on that. you buy a few items from the market and are taxed on that. you pay mortgage , insurance, utilities, and each include taxes. Your registration is due and you pay taxes on that. You by a new toothbrush, rent a car or water your lawn, you pay taxes on that.  But how else can THEY afford to maintain their jets and vacation homes and lavish lifestyles right?I definetely don’t understand why THEY get to make EVERYTHING benefit them ? If everyo ne would stop blaming others WE could solve alot of OUR problems. Not world issues I mean the stuff you and I  deal with everyday. But what do i know ? I’m just a HICK CHICK
