A Little Fly

Somehow when I was outside last evening, a pesky fly flew in. I got up this morning and when I went to the bathroom, there he was, already to chat with me. That made me think about things I heard in the past.

“If a fly enters your home in the Fall, money will come your way.”

Well, it isn’t Fall yet, so no money to come my way. I have to smile when I think of all the years that have passed by. Where has the time gone? Is there anything I haven’t done yet that I have wanted to do?

Believe it or not, I have not ridden a fair ride since my early twenties. I have a friend who is constantly at me to join in the fun at places like Cedar Point. I have no interest. I don’t know if it is because I am older, or since I have never been, I have no desire on what I haven’t done.

This is Cedar Point.


I have wanted to live in Tennessee, it seems forever. I had the chance at one point, but my brother and I chose another state, due to health reasons. I really didn’t care for Florida that much. Oh it’s a great place to visit or live in the winter, but the summer’s are just too darn hot. I remember, if we went to the grocery store, we had foam coolers in our car trunk. All cold and frozen items went in there because if you had any other errands to run, you could count on cold items being spoiled and frozen items starting to thaw. I just don’t care for that ungodly heat. I lived in Sarasota, Florida with my brother. As his health became worse, this is why we moved back home to Indiana. I provided you a link to the city we lived in.


Next, I will provide you a photo of Tennessee. This would be my home today, if everything came together for everyone.

Now, I will provide you a photo of where I live and you shall easily see the difference.

Florida is known for their oranges and Indiana is known for their corn.

Another thing I would have, that I haven’t owned before is a Weeping Willow tree. I think they are beautiful.

Your arms wrap gently around me

Singing, recognizing my heart

You bring me comfort

And we”ll never part.
