Observations

I am an empty nester who is never ever satisfied with the way things are going. I am always changing horses in midstream and seldom follow through on anything.

One constant in my life though, is that really odd people are attracted to me. This used to bother me but I have learned to live with it and find good humor and lots of yarn spinning fodder.

You are invited to read about the real life characters that traipse through my very ordinary world and I hope you find the same joy I do in meeting them.

update: Still fixing stuff as fast as I can!. As you may have noticed, Diaryland is being renovated, which is still in progress. Bugs are all being fixed. The new design should work on phones much better than the old one, and pages in the members area are being converted to the new look one by one, so they can be tested. Please email help@diaryland.com with any new problems, but things that are already bugs should be fixed soon!
