The Facts

My name is Pam and I’ve been blogging since October 17 2001.

I write about family life, politics, whatever happens to be growing in my yard and other current events.

My husband Mike shows up in my posts, as does Youngest stepdaughter [YsD], Oldest Daughter [OD, a.k.a. ‘Tonie’] and dogs Bree, Badger & Daisy. Sometimes, the grandkids.

Lately I do nothing but post pictures.

The Random

Never grew up, never wanted to.

Optimistic Realist.

Greens and Blues. Currently in love with Black.

Fiscal Conservative.

I’m adopted. Through testing I found Irish, English and Norse ancestry, but nobody really knows who I am, even me. I should have been a spy.

The Rules

You are welcome to disagree with me. Heck, I could be wrong about something and not know it.

The only time I will alter a comment in any way is to delete spam. If you piss me off too many times, you become spam.

Like most bloggers, I solicit readership. I want opinions. This is not a private diary or a tiny fascist government.

Thanks for reading, and please don’t hesitate to email me if you have a question or wish to use one of my photographs. They’re not all that, but they’re mine. You know how it is.


The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.
