    Read Previous Newsletter Reprints Hellooooooooooooo and Welcome, Thank you for joining me once again in my Untamed, Unexpected, and Unforgettable World. Thank you for joining me once again in my Untamed, Unexpected, Unforgettable world. My last email was a touch maudlin. we were devastated at the loss of the loss of our beautiful Aussie Shepherd, Tula. Thank you to so many of you who reached out, sent sympathy cards, kind emails, blessed us with light, and even dropped off a mini-rose bush. I feel so lucky to have you in my world. The three of us (Athol, Tsotsi our ten-year-old Aussie shepherd and I) were moping around, raw and lonely. After…

    May 2024 Newsletter Reprint – From The Rainbow Bridge to an Evening with the STARs

    Read Previous Newsletter Reprints   Hellooooooooooooo and Welcome, Thank you  coming back for another wild, wacky safari in my camo jeep. I hope this finds you full of the joys of spring; or for my friends south of the equator, stocking up for the coming winter. As you likely know, my Tula girl – our 16-year-old Aussie Shepherd at seventy pounds, was living on borrowed time, and we were grateful for every precious day with her. She suddenly had enough and went on to other adventures. The pain of losing her was so acute…only other pet lovers could ever understand. My insightful just-turned-teen granddaughter, Abby, summed it up beautifully: I…

    April 2024 Newsletter Reprint – SHARE THE FLUFFIES YOU ADORE!

    Read Previous Newsletter Reprints Helloooooooooo again. So very happy you popped in. My camo jeep is all polished and spiffy, ready for us to spend time together as we explore my Untamed, Unexpected, Unforgettable World.

    February 2024 Newsletter Reprint – Hands, Hearts & Fun Stuff

    Read Previous Newsletter Reprints Helloooooooooo, and here we are, together again in my Untamed, Unexpected, Unforgettable world. How happy that makes me. I hope it does the same for you. Three or more weeks before Valentine’s Day, hundreds of flights from Colombia and Ecuador delivered around 18,000 tons of flowers to the Florida hub in Miami this year. There were roses and carnations from Bogota; pompons, hydrangeas, and chrysanthemums from Medellin; and roses, carnations, and gypsophila from Quito to name just a few. All in the name of love. Or lust. Or hopefulness.   UNTAMED! But I reckon we should go back to basics. What happened to good old hand-holding? It’s free, you…

    October 2023 Newsletter Reprint – Braais, Prizes, & Bucket Lists

    Read Previous Newsletter Reprints Helloooooooooo, and Welcome to my Untamed, Unexpected, Unforgettable world. I love that you come back for more. Thank you! Our boychild came to visit with his lovely new bride. (He is close to half a century but he will always be my ‘boychild’ just as his sister, Lesley, will always be my ‘girlchild’.) Terry and Trwinka showered us with kindness. Terry did chores neither his dad nor I can do with ease, and they even cooked us two glorious meals. We thought we’d died and gone to a posh hotel. Not just quick omelets you understand, but meals that took time and forethought. Perfectly grilled steaks…
