I am a happy anomaly; a quirky mother, book lover, gardener and now a new writer. I was born an old soul, according to my mother and spent most of my childhood buried in a book.If there is nothing to read. I have been known to desperately scan the backs of cereal boxes or phone books.

I once casually mentioned, to no one in particular, that I was simply an ordinary mum, when the diningroom fell silent. “No, I am sorry, Mum, but you are definitely not ordinary; you are the furthest thing from a normal mother”, remarked one quick-witted daughter. Everyone broke out laughing including... Read More

Usually the deep freeze hits in mid January but this year it hit in November and stayed. Our pipes to one bathroom and our washer froze twice in the last three years and at least 8-10 times already this year alone.

I am choosing to laugh instead of cry but for some, with propane prices doubling this fall, they can hardly afford to heat their homes. The United Way is running campaigns just for those heating with propane on fixed incomes who simply cannot eat, pay for medicine and pay for propane. Supposedly Ontario sold too much propane to the States to dry their record-breaking corn... Read More

Perhaps people in power should listen as Dr. Seuss and I talk to my children.

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

.Share and others will share with you.

More toys won’t make you happier.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.

Always say please and thank-you.

When you are grateful and thankful for even the smallest things, you will be happy.

.Don’t take offense quickly or every insult and slight personally; sometimes other... Read More

Ray Bradbury sums up how my kids often solved their own problems. As part of a busy household, they often came up with their own solutions to problems before I could help them.

This is best illustrated by one of my son’s when he was six years old. His grade one teacher recounted this story to me. It seems that she asked her class this question,

“How would you open the garage door if there were no grown-ups around?”

All the kids in her grade one class just sat and stared blankly at her, except my son Joseph. He was frantically waving his hand in the air and then excitedly... Read More


I was thinking again tonight. That's twice this year and quite frankly m dears i'm exhausted. Why on earth don't they have a standard spelling for each word. Like MONEY for instance. America spells it BROKE. Australia spells it BLOODY 'BROKE AS'TOO!

Some spell it CREDIT CHARRED which in effect has the same intonation.

Why can't the car manufacturers make one standard key to fit every car in the world. When you lose your key you could just borrow the person's nearest you. I think some people already practice that.

We should all wear the same... Read More


Joe was born lazy. He was 10 years old when HE decided to be born. I kid you not which was Joe's first job. A 10 year old lazy kid.Joe's mother was lazy too. Out of sheer boredom and irate comments by the shoppers at Wallmart whom Ethel 'blockaded' the 'specials' aisle when she turned side on to remonstrate with the 'chosen ones' who couldn't choose anything in the aisle due to the mother- of- all- births.Joe was born/ejected on Fred's 'buy one-get one free' shelf which is utter crap as astute shoppers know. The 'buy one' is TWICE the price to compensate as if yews... Read More

My maiden name is Myers.


How many Myers Women does it take to drive a car in my mum’s retirement town?



"Three?", you gasp, "But how is that possible?"

Ah, well, quite possible when all three women either refuse to drive, are reluctant drivers or simply cannot drive a car at all. This is not some anti-female slur. I am simply relaying the facts.

The most important person in this triad was my sister, Elizabeth, the chauffeur by default, driving the intimidatingly large, luxury machine. Incidentally, the car's owner was... Read More
