New Read . . .

Have you been reading this summer? Keeping up with the reading challenge? Thought I had forgotten, didn’t you? Just because I haven’t listed all my reads? Well, fooled you. I’ve had a great time delving into and digging through my TBR stack this summer. I just finished A PIECE OF HEAVEN by Barbara Samuel. This is no typical lovestory. As a matter of fact, I wasn’t totally sure Ms. Samuel intended to pull off a lovestory by book’s end. HINT: it was a lovely surprise to find that she not only satisfied her hero/heroine but readers as well. That said, Ms. Samuel delivers a novel of a truly broken heroine. Luna McGraw doesn’t believe she […]

10 . . 9 . . 8 . . 7, can you say LAUNCH?

Here I am in cyberspace!!! Again!!! My website, SLFERGUSON is launched. The building, and rebuilding of the pages, the tweaking until the site and I both screamed, the hunt for the perfect graphics, and the exploration of embedding music and links was certainly worth the effort.

I love when you pop by my back porch for a visit, but do pop by […]

Traveling Tips

However, here are a few traveling tips that hit while on vacation: 1st —Trust a truck stop for a decent meal. There is a side-note to this one. Look for a truck stop where trucks are ACTUALLY stopped. If there are semis in the parking lot then you’re safe for a good meal. No parked 18-wheelers and you needed to keep trucking right on down the road. 2nd —Carry a spare set of keys. […]

4th of July

Who celebrates a birthday on the 4th of July? Okay, some of these people are dead. I get it – they don’t celebrate birthdays anymore. Just a disclaimer so no one emails me to point out the obvious. Ann Landers, Neil Simon, Gina Lollobrigida, Calvin Coolidge, and Louis B. Mayer Did you know July is national Hot Dog month? No wonder so many folks belly up to the bar (hot dog cart that is) and order one in the steamy days of summer. During the 4th of July weekend, an estimate 155 million dogs will be consumed. Yummy! Americans have been celebrating 4th of July since 1777 (bells rung, candles lighted, and firecrackers set off), […]
