Chatty’s Anniversary!


    Chatty would like to take a moment to thank all of the people who have supported Glimpses through the Blog on this, her FIRST ANNIVERSARY!

    On December 29 of 2007, Chatty had NO idea what she was doing – but everyone suggested that she just jump in, because the water was fine – and she was assured bloggers are nice, helpful people.

    This has proved to be so true!

    A big thank you to all who have given Chatty advice, read her fledgling efforts, left comments, and become friends in the process. Please glance on …

Puppies and Buckets

    See how nicely Chatty’s plan worked out?

Swamped Thing, or Now We Go A-Wordzzling

    Is it just Chatty, or do the holidays seem to be bearing down on us rather quickly this year?  

    Chatty has yet to really get into the swing of things. She has been swamped with finishing her final project and the take-home final exam for a course she’s been taking for three hours every Tuesday evening for the past 15 weeks. The last class, and Chatty’s final presentation and turning in the final – is on Tuesday.  Chatty – ever one to procrastinate while insisting she works best under pressure –  is toiling mightily to …

Brisket for Winston and Scallops for Chatty

     For those of you who may not remember (or didn’t know), Winston is Chatty’s favorite beagle. He came to dinner with his daddy on Saturday night, to see Chatty’s adopted mom and his friends Cleo and Toot – and to meet our visiting Peekapoo princess, Juliette.

    A good time was had by all, and much brisket was consumed by
everyone except Chatty. Chatty, however, ate most of the potatoes and carrots, so
things evened out nicely. Winston knows his way around a kitchen – his
daddy is an excellent cook. So to have him leave a …
