James Godzilla Page

James Godzilla Page

For the past few days James has been working on a blog called James Godzilla Page. He has written several stories about Godzilla dreams. Plus the past two days he has been working on a book which he completed today.



His stories can be found here. He writes them and I just type em up for him.

Not So Random



We had the pleasure of watching the lunar eclipse Thursday. I was in the middle of cooking pasta when Father calls to tell us to look outside. We scurry out front and watch for a couple minutes. I took a couple shots with my kodak. Then went in and drained the pasta and set it aside. Grabbed the Nikon and took a few shots. Fiddled with settings, fiddled with lenses, fiddled some more and went back for the Kodak. Every time I use the dang Nikon I tell myself "I need to read the darn manual." Then self forgets of course, until the next time self tries to use the camera again. I am mechanically inclined, yet for some reason this camera and I don't seem to get along. Why is that?

Then for the sake of actually enjoying the lunar eclipse, we slipped out back on the dark patio after dinner and had a great view of the reddish moon. James was very excited to see the lunar eclipse. He gets excited when ever we witness a celestial event. Sp…

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day


Today is a special day where you buy your honey flowers, chocolate, shower him or her with diamonds or spend exorbitant amounts of money in the stores to prove to your love that you love him or her.

Everyday in our household is Valentine's day. Father and I tell each other I love you at least 20 times a day. We can never part without saying I love you. We can never finish a telephone conversation without saying I love you.

I found my soul mate 15 years ago and just hearing I love you, I want you, I need you is enough for me. I don't need fancy jewelry or fancy dinners. Mushy cards and late night dinners are more my style. Father buys the mushiest cards that make me cry and I sometimes do the same to him. We fill our cards with xxxx and oooo's and heartfelt sentiments of life together. Every day is Valentine's Day for us.

Every day James will suddenly express his love in the middle of watching a Godzilla movie or eating his dinner. …

Fun Monday - The one song that is you.

Crown Princess at Ooh, a Shiny Pen is hosting Fun Monday this week “Music plays a vital role in most of our lives. It is everywhere. I want to hear the ONE song that is you. The song that whenever it is heard, you smile. I am not looking for the soundtrack of your life, just that one song. Your friends hear it and think of you. You can post the video, the lyrics, the wav file. However you want to post it is great.”The first thing I thought when I read this was “no way.”I don’t have a song that is me.I couldn’t think of a single thing.Then for some reason a song from Grease 2 came to mind.I like listening to Grease 2 when I clean the house – love love love “cool rider.”If you have ever watched Grease 2 you’ll know the song I am talking about.Michelle Phillips starts singing up on top of a ladder, doing a sexy dance. I always imagine myself in her place, up there on that ladder, belting out the song. However, when I sing, James covers his ears and runs for the hills.
If you really w…

Writer's Island: Prompt - changed

Writers IslandThis week’s Writer’s Island prompt is: “Changed”.Just contemplate the word “Changed”, and let your muse take you from there. Surprise, shock, mystify us!Whatever moves your soul this week is what we all want to read. So, create your poem, prose, short story, essay, commentary, or whatever — and post it on your blog. Feel free to include recordings of you reading your work — and any photo, artwork, or graphic representation you feel is relevant.I decided to give Writer’s Island a try in order to spark my creativity with writing.Great prompt isn’t it.Changed.What does the word changed bring to mind.Right now, the big change for me is writing.Once I decided to join in nanowrimo and write a novel, life changed.I started getting up at 6:30 and writing (or typing as the case may be).Luna helped.She would jump on the bed around 6:00, pounce on my feet, use the bed for a scratching post or just mew her head off until I got up.And I would write until James got up.Sometimes it is …

Wordless Wednesday --- NOT!

James and Mom to the rescue!














Lovely Luna












Poor little birdy



I was peacefully sleeping in James' bed this morning... Why? Well, he had a bad dream in the middle of the night and crawled into bed with us. I can't sleep with two hot bodies so moved to his bed. Any who, James comes in to tell me Luna has caught a bird's egg. I jump out of bed and see Luna on the patio chewing on something. At first glance it looks like an egg which she has broken open. Out the door I go to save whatever it is. She had her mouth wrapped around the little fella above. I chased Luna around the patio, caught her and made her drop the bird. I scooped up the poor thing and took her inside. James and I had the experience of getting up close and personal with the bird and checked her out thoroughly. Stunned and breathing.

You could tell the minute she came out of it.... Her eyes darkened and she looked at me and chirped, her claws grasped my finger. I get the bright idea -- l…

Presidential Election

VOTE!!!!!!!



Father and I will be voting today for Mike Huckabee. Check out the link to find out his view on the issues. I decided months ago to throw my hat in his corner and after some contemplation and regurgitation, Father decided to do the same.

Frankly, none of the candidates float my boat, but Mike comes closest even though Father says his name reminds him of Huckleberry hound and keeps calling him President Huckleberry.

I am proud of Huckabee for keeping it clean and not resorting to mud slinging and lamb basting the other candidates.

Several people told me they were concerned about his view on immigration and having open boarders which surprised the heck out of me. So for your amusement, here are his views straight from the horses mouth regarding that issue.

Governor Huckabee believes:Securing our borders must be our top priority and has reached the level of a national emergency.
I support the $3 billion the Senate has voted for border security. This money will train and dep…

Fun Monday - Bucket List

Tiggerlane is hosting fun monday this week and she wants us to do a bucket list.




"Have you heard of The Bucket List? Well, that's what I want from you! Make a list of things you want to do before you die. It must be at least five items - and you can make it as long as you desire. Photos are optional. And let's hear about some of the wackiest, most bizarre to-do's on your Bucket List!"


My bucket list of things I want to do before I die which will be in about 50 or more years, give or take a few. I plan to grow old gracefully with Father and bounce many grandbabies on my knee. James has already advised me he wants to have 10 kids and share his Godzilla movies with them.

1) Wine tour of France - we want to spend at least a month in France and tour the wineries. Father introduced me to Bordeaux wine and I have been spoiled ever since. California wine gives me a headache and makes my nose all stuffy.

2) Along with the wine tour, I also want to go on the orient ex…

Meme - Eight Things about MOI!

Do you ever get so busy or your brain so full of other stuff that unless you write a list of things to do, you forget.I seem to have that tendency these days.Then your lists get so long, you just look at it and decide to read a book instead.Lisa of Koinonia Academy tagged me back in November while I was in the middle of nanowrimo and it completely slipped my mind.

And for the first time in my life, I decided to send some family members Christmas presents after Christmas.And I forgot.Then remembered.Then forgot again.Fortunately said family members aren’t too shy about asking if the packages got lost in the mail and with much chagrin, I remembered what I had forgotten.Do you start losing your mind, the closer you get to 50?Maybe I’ll just start writing lists of 5 things I need to do and once those are done, then we’ll go with another 5.Things may just get done that way. Okay – on with the show.My list of 8 things (without or without qualification depending on my mood.If you want qualif…
