Yet ANOTHER reason why I must go to Morrocco


NO it's not just a link. It's a recipe for the most tremendous, ferociously delicious chicken dish ever conceived by mankind! And where does it come from? Morocco!!!!! Frikkin $%^&*&^%$@! MOROCCO!!! For many years I have been wanting to travel there. To walk where moroccan people and animals walk. And to even breathe in the same air and dust and bits of twigs and hair that make up the dirt of Morocco.

Funny things is, I don't really know why. Maybe it's because an elderly man (who had a very fulfilling life) told me just before he died that of all the places he had been to in the world, his trip to Morocco was the best one ever. He couldn't really say why either. The food, the sights, the people, they were his favorite. I liked him. He had a successful Italian bakery in Groton that was open for about 50 years before he got sick and retired. He had a couple of great kids, and a beautiful woman, who traveled with him, and was at his side when he died.

So, I want to go. Really really bad.

This poor baby was sitting out on the side of the road in Groton. The house was set far back from the road, in a very quiet country setting. It had rained, so there was still some moisture clinging to it.

I took it home and just ordrered the manual from an online seller. Tomorow I'll try cleaning and oiling to make it work. My other singer has a power cord which may work with it. We'll see.

if only

My realtor contacted me with another proposal from the seller (bank actually since it's a foreclosure).

I have them where I want them, HOWEVER, I do not have my income where I want it, nor do I have the house where I want it for that matter.

The 2nd job isn't providing me with any regular income as it had in the past years, AND the house is still sitting in a bad neighborhood. So despite a very nice set of conditions, I am still going to have to walk away.

O well.

'N'other news: I decided to become an Avon Lady! Sort of a whim, but what the heck. I've always liked the products, and I feel ready to commit to making it work, unlike the past times that I've tried rep jobs for Lia Sophia and Watkins.

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.
