Happy Sunday night.

I have a funny dilemma to share with you.
If you are going to have a problem, then this is a good problem to have.

It seems as if I have
not one
not two
not three
But, four events
that are happening on the same day and start during the same time.
*This is an edit post. I forgot to add an event. 🙆🏾
tee ta ha

Tune in before the end of the week to see which event I post a ton of or at least two photos of the event that I chose to attend.

Ooooh. A mystery. 🙄😆

Goodnight and GOD Bless

Good Morning.

If you faced the Flash Flooding in the Dallas/FT Worth area aka The Metroplex.
Check in first with me, so I'll know that your okay. 😍

Then you can call your family, friends and neighbor's and check on them. 🤗

It was really, really bad last night. I don't remember experiencing such a heavy rain and thunderstorm in a while. I received a phone call and two cell phone text weather messages about the storm last night until 1:45AM

Since my phone number is still connected to a Coded Weather alert system before I permanently moved back home, the system called me at

I'll check on my former neighbor's later this afternoon.
People are still sleeping. 😴

Don't forget to post, text(I still don't accept texts. 😆😂) or call to check in on others and let them know that your okay. 😘❤️

Pre-Order Book Release Alert for Bette Ford. 🚨

Her Second Chance (A Sheppard’s Place Novel Book 1)

Her Second Chance is the long-awaited contemporary African American romance from Romantic Times Career Achievement Award winning author, Bette Ford.

A fiercely independent woman…
Trenna McAdams’s main goal in life is independence. After a tragic (and tragically wrong!) marriage, she’s finally realized her dream of running a prestigious preschool, bringing her closer than she ever thought possible to being truly happy. If only she wasn’t constantly distracted by the attentions of the charming, dynamic Darrin Morgan. Sure, she likes the way he fills out the shoulders of his custom-made suits, but there’re also those rumors in their office building about his womanizing ways. Surely, he could get any woman he wants. And Trenna isn’t interested in being a notch on anyone’s bedpost.

A successful, smooth-talking man…
Four years ago, Darrin Morgan’s life changed the moment he laid eyes on Trenna McAdams. With every fiber of his being, he knew she was the one for him. But she was a recent widow, and Darrin respected that. Now that he’s found out she’s dating again, he’s ready to show Trenna that he can be everything she’s ever wanted and everything she ever needed.

New Love or old entanglements…
Talented and confident, Morgan-Green’s top attorney is everything that Trenna can do without. Should do without. If only Darrin’s sweet-talk didn’t make her toes curl—or inspire other kinds of sensations too; emotions she never realized she could feel.

As she discovers Darrin’s true character, she becomes more and more enmeshed by his charm, strength, and compassion. But Trenna’s late husband proves to be as much of an obstacle to Trenna’s happily-ever-after as he was when he was alive. Can Trenna defeat her ghosts before she lets this second—and perhaps only—chance at true love pass her by?
