February 21, 2008 Tee hee. Tee hee hee.  :o) Oh, what a surprise. He's so predictable. Or maybe I should say consistent.  Oh, and wicked cute. I scored this game on Tuesday.  Dude, fifty cents.

190: open the door?

May 9, 2008 Hey, lookie what I found at an estate sale a couple of weeks ago: Yep, another one!Actually, my Honey grabbed it for me. (Tee hee - my honey.) Another game I scored: Mystery Date! I love this illustration: and this: ............................................................................................................................. Last week, the leaves finally sprung! My heart flip-flops for that light yellowy-green of baby leaves. Driving down scenic route 6A on Cape Cod is such a treat at this time of year. I always keep an eye out for when the 'canopy' appears- the trees from either side of the road extending their offerings of frilly new...

209: sad but truthful

June 7, 2008 I am off balance. Since my return from Portland, I have  scurried to the bathroom to cry a few times a week (at my day job.)Is that too honest?   Of course, I don't need to tell you this. But Yummy Goods really is a representation of me, and it's either share this part of me or stop blogging till I feel better. And I  really enjoy blogging- that is, I  enjoy the interaction with you- so I don't want to just wait and not post until it's all happy and pretty.And you wouldn't want me to,...
