February 23rd

Hello Everyone:) I hope all are safe and warm. Today is a grey cloudy day with snow flurries and howling wind.

We are expected to be like this all weekend. The wind is blowing so hard it is blowing the snow out of here. Oh how I hate the howling of the wind.

I look forward to spring. Oh may it come and bring a gentle spring of enjoyment. I am ready to watch the rebirth of the earth and the animals.

Today the Idaho Author’s Community is having two book signings one in Weiser and one in Fruitland. I hope that many will be able to go and browse through a variety of author’s and select some wonderful books.

I could not attend due to the distance and my health although I am with them all in spirit. I pray that they are having better weather than we are.


Free Write Friday (FWF) lyric prompt…

“Oh yea, they say ‘life goes on’ long after the thrill of living is gone.”

This is one of Kellie’s favorite Mellancamp songs, Jack and Diane, that she says leaves her pining for those long lost summers of youth and wishing she hadn’t been in such a hurry.

What does this lyric mean to you?


Oh yea, life goes on’

long after the thrill of

loving, living, and dreams.

Life goes on through hardships

and sorrows, divorce, and deaths.

Oh yea’ life goes on’ because we must

keep on living for future generations.

We had our dreams,  hopes, our aspirations,

However, everything seems to fade with time,

except for our memories.

We still have the memories of youth, fun,

flirting, and being giddy,

We still have the memories of our first date,

first dance, first prom.

We still have the memories of our first love,

and all the craziness of adolescence.

Oh yea’ life goes on but not the way we

expect it to. It has its own twists and turns

and takes you on a journey that you never

expected to go on. It gives you a roller coaster ride

that sometimes you would like to get off of.  But in the

end you have to realize you are living.

Oh yea’ life goes on and new dreams appear,  hopefully

life will always go on for when we stop and are merely existing

than life doesn’t go on no more.

We live, we love, we change, and what we do with it is our choice.

Let life go on yea’ even if it is nothing more than the cherished moments

in your mind of family, friends, love, and happiness. Let life remain in your heart forever.

So until next time live life yea’ 🙂
