The first thing I want to say today is:


Wunderbar is a song, not a sweet. It’s a number in one of my favorite musicals: Kiss Me Kate, a movie of a company putting on a musical version of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it.

Here’s the song I’m talking about. Brush Up Your Shakespeare is another favorite from the movie. Oh, hell, just about ALL the songs are favorites!

Hope you enjoyed it. 🙂

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Two characters reminisce about their youth.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    OMG, is it Mizz G’s BIRTHDAY!!!
    Oh, happy happy, dear girl!

    Speaking of reminiscing, I just got to figuring in my head, innocent-like, you know. And it just popped in that since this is 2014 (a ridiculous number, no?), then we two must have met each other in (a large number ending in zero) years ago. Can you believe it?

      I’ll tell her you said so. 🙂

      Oh, dear lord, I must have done the math wrong. It can’t be! lol! On the other hand, it does seem realistic that we’ve been friends almost all of our lives. 🙂
