Ewwww! Kill it!

You get a picture of this because I wasn't pausing to photograph the bug.

  How are you about bugs? Can you handle them or do they freak you out? I am a little better now that I’m older. I can handle them if they’re small. But when they’re big ones, I turn into a three year old little girl and start to freak and run around screaming. Have […]

Is it time to get your eyes checked?


Do you wear glasses? Contact lenses? My whole life I’ve had 20/15 vision. My mother used to call me Hawkeye because I could see things so well both close up and far away.
