It was the best of times...it was the worst of times.... and I was out of butter pecan ice cream.....
Before I learned the calmative qualities of butter pecan ice cream I was arranging for a daily morphine drip.
From my sister-in-law’s spur of the moment decision to dig up her husband’s grave believing he "had taken all the money with him," to my father-in-law rolling out of his coffin when the table leg collapsed at the viewing. There is something about my in-laws and the afterlife.
Mix in one daughter’s planned sabbatical to Kosovo, another with a penchant for breaking bones and a dust-sensitive dog with tear duct issues. The fact that my siblings still refer to me as "The Favorite" really doesn't bother me - well, most days it doesn't.
SCARLETT'S LETTERS are for you, kindred spirits, who wonder if you are the only inhabitant of a personal Twilight Zone.
Writers are like a demonic AA group -- we are singularly able to dance with each other's devils...jdyoung
I was a displaced Bronx housewife and used my letters to keep in touch with friends. Originally starting my letters in Lake George, NY, I still continue seeing sides of life that amaze me on a daily basis and I do like to share my views. My husband and I have been settled in Southern Virginia for the past 20 years and life has gotten more interesting and busier than I could have ever imagined.
Fans share my humor as a cross between Dave Barry & Erma Bombeck – a comparison which lifts my soul. They say it brings laughter and an uplifting of spirit as they maneuver the trying times of daily life. After my daughter’s untimely death I determined the way to celebrate her and her contribution to our family was through the laughter and wonderful times we all shared. God opened a door for me and I am encouraged to share it with all.
I am thrilled my book has a 5 star rating on Amazon and look forward to publication of my second tome The Butter Pecan Diaries. I truly hope you enjoy reading as much as I have enjoyed putting my thoughts to paper.
