What’s the strangest question you’ve ever been asked?

Believe it or not, the reason I ask is that I have two! The longer I live, the more I realize just how complicated life has become to the point where we are regularly asked questions I never in my wildest dreams would consider having to answer when I was young…you know, last century. The […]

Creativity, Age, and Silver Linings…Oh, My!

I’ve been busy creating memes for my clients and my social media platforms, but I did create a few new JoJoisms this past month.  Here they are in no particular order.

Feeding my obsession

My friends and family feed my purple passion!  This CHRISTmas I received a small plum colored flashlight in my stocking and a dark purple gorgeous scarf from my dd. Aren’t they wonderful?

Here’s your purple sign!

I only wear purple.  Every day I wear something that is purple.  Now my glasses are purple too. I have a purple purse, wallet, water bottle, pens, pads of paper, etc.  […]

Grape Expectations
