Welcome to "The Creek!"

Most of you know that I love to write and always have something to say.  I just went to a humor writing seminar by a Columbus Dispatch columnist Joe Blundo and am taking his advice that blogs are the best way to meet both my writing and communicating needs.  Even though it's all about me (LOL), I want to assure you that I will do my best to be brief and entertaining.  Feel free to remind me when I screw up and bore you. 

Some of my posts will be excerpts from my humor articles (when I'm extra lazy.)  Most will be day-to-day events regarding home, family and friends, my latest craft projects/tips, our pets (10 exotic chicken hens, down to three dogs, and an ancient parrot), but the best part will be my opinion on things.  You KNOW you won't want to miss that!

There will be absolutely nothing posted about cooking, cleaning, laundry and grocery shopping because they bore me.  If you know me personally, you will also understand the lack of exercise and diet tips.  (Though I often find those topics humorous.)

Ground Rules (that are made to be broken, but likely I won't):  No discussing politics, religion, my past job at the school district or my current one at Lowe's (I don't think it's a good idea to mix work and play) and nothing that is inappropriate for children (except bad words in the cartoons on that page only--and I warn folks at the top of the page.)

Note:  Most of the names will be changed to protect the innocent (me) from the guilty!

So come back once or so a week (who knows what days lol), relax and sit a spell.   Be sure to go to the index in the upper right corner so you can easily find previous posts by topic!

Until next time,

  1. I noticed you are a freelance writer and write some humor. Could you take a look at an article and tell me if I'm on the right track. All you have to say is good or not so great. The article is called Zeroscaping and is about my experience with gardening. Pleeeez. alnd I would give any thing to read your humor articles when they are available.


I love hearing from you! LMK by email if you have problems commenting or following. I am also grateful if you would kindly refer a friend or two! Thanks!
