I make gift baskets for just about every occasion, some containing AVON and some not. I can also customize gift baskets to include only what you want.


Cats, cats, everywhere there’s cats, creeping out of the greenery, breaking Dave’s mind, eat this, don’t eat that, oh my, all the cats. To help with the stray, abandoned and feral cat population in the Canal Pine Acres neighborhood, a non-profit foundation, Miss Kitty’s Long Branch Ranch Incorporated (LBR), has been created to help provide food and shelter for these animals.


LBR accepts donations of all kinds. Some of the donations we sell and others we give away to those in need of such items. If you are someone or know of someone in need of clothing or household items, please send me an email to … will get back to you on that.

Not in the mushy sense, but when it comes to stuff like mastering the art of patience and calling out fear for what it really is – false evidence appearing real.

Need enough to get by yet too much makes friends say bye-bye. Oh, pride, fun stuff.


Questions you’ve always wanted to ask but didn’t.



I love taking pictures of scenery. This is sure to build up over time.


Choosing thoughts changes lives and I am living proof of this. For years I denounced the simplicity of such a notion, silly me!
