They say every face in a crowd has a story to tell, this is my story..

The news shows and newspapers all called it 'Road Rage'. To me that sounded like a disease, an affliction that can make you kill. A sorry excuse to take the claw end of a hammer and slam it repeatedly into the skull of a human being. In April of 1999 my little brother passed away. Doesn't passed away sound so gentle, even normal? David's death was neither. It was murder. He was found lying in a strangers driveway in a pool of blood. He had been punched, stomped and beaten over his entire body. I still have so many questions. I wrote this book at first for therapy and then for answers. I have found a few. I mainly realized l lost a brother tragically and senselessly. Like every other face in the crowd I have a story..and I want to share my story with you! PUBLICATION DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED LATE SUMMER/EARLY FALL :)

Favorite things...Pantry Edition..

Having just returned from a most fabulous weekend at the beach with my husbands entire family as well as our own; I have to admit my pantry is quite empty. Except for of course my favorite things:
Golden Grahams Cereal-I do not drink milk so I just snack on them
Hunts Pasta Sauce(Four Cheese) in a can
Whole Grain angel hair
Betty Crocker cake mix, frosting and brownie mix
Lemon and Pepper Spice (have to have it for steak and chicken)
White albacore tuna (one can)
Arnold's whole grain protein bread (1/2 loaf yikes)
Smucker's Peanut Butter (not crunchy) and Smucker's grape jelly..
I need to go shopping..but for now I can live on these things..
Thank you Mrs. 4444 for providing this fun and easy Monday Morning blog hop; I am so sad I missed the 100th edition of Friday Fragments but I will double fragment for 101!


  1. I love a pantry that is not filled to the top!

  2. Thanks for visiting!

    The joy and pain in life is like peanut butter and jelly... they just go together. Read that on my friend Shannon's blog.

    I could live on PB&J and cold milk

  3. That's funny.

    I have always been intrigued by the idea of whole grain pasta, but I'm afraid to ruin a meal with it. Is it really good?!

  4. Why you can still make several meals from your pantry even though you've been gone awhile! Glad to hear you had a nice trip.

  5. Well the nice thing about an empty pantry is filling it back up again, have fun shopping! Sounds like a wonderful time at the beach.

  6. Hey! I want to read your interview but can't find the Say Anything blog. I did a few google searches and came up with everything but what I wanted : ) Can you link it from here or email me the website?

  7. This is the perfect time to pull out all those recipes you keep meaning to try, make a list of ingredients, and try one new recipe a week. I don't do that, but I want to! Beth
