Taking one day at a time, and enjoying life in the heart of Dixie. People create their own questions because they are afraid to look straight. All you have to do is look straight and see the road, and when you see it, don’t sit looking at it – walk. There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Love these paintings….The Shiner reminds me of me. Braids and all….with 5 older brothers, I was quite the tomboy, scraps and principal office included. Lol. 🙂
