Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Two Bright Shiny Apples That Fell Right Below the Tree


When I am working in the kitchen - - - or by ANY counter for that matter - - - I often stand like this.  Right foot planted straight down and left foot pointed out to the side with just the toe touching down.

If I need to lean the other way for some reason, the feet positions switch.

I don't know why I stand this way - - - I wasn't even aware that I did it until my kids got old enough to notice.

Oh there was laughter.

There was chortling.

The was outright make-fun-of-mother-ing.

I kid you not.

Then several years ago, oldest daughter Keri confessed to me, with shamed face I might add, that her hubby had pointed out to her that she was standing the EXACT SAME WAY at her kitchen counter.

"Comfortable, isn't it!?"  I chided.

Actually I believe I rubbed it in good and proper.

It's not often a mother gets to do that, ya know.

Here she is, applying her make-up.  This time it's her right toe pointing out, probably because of that being more comfortable for the side of her face she was workin' on.

Then, just a few days ago, our youngest SIL texted me this shot:

He said, "I asked Korie why she was standing that way to chop vegetables.  She said, tweet it to mom, but I have no idea why."

Oh - - - I HAVE AN IDEA WHY!!!!!

Genetic pay-back is a cruel slave master.

Now who gets the last laugh, girls????


And Korie - - - feed those weens, they are BEGGING!!  Don't make ME come down there and do it.
