In Search of Happy Fiction

"12 Paws and Frogs" will be on hiatus for the remainder of the week, as I redirect my energy toward writing a little "Flash Fiction" story for my daughter's blog, L.A. Birdie's Laugh @ Life.  My deadline is bright and early Friday morning, and I have yet to write down one word, probably because the story is supposed to be happy -- no death, destruction, or personal suffering, which happens to be my forte.  So to encourage the flow of happy creativity, I shall force myself to sit leisurely in the garden for a serious session of daydreaming. 

Wish me luck!

From the "gratitude" archives of my life, I'll leave you with one happy thought to get you (okay, mostly me) through the week. . .

One is never too young or too old for a sing-a-long.

Father's Day 2010 - song performance by my granddaughters 
Mia (1 year old) and Alana (2 years old), my daughter Ashley, my parents, and me.

Life is good!


  1. Too cute. Thanks for being such a great grandma! Love you!

  2. What a precious video and adorable little grandchildren. Another happy celebration. I remember that song..... it's been around forever. Also "People on the Bus." Do little kids still sing that one? Maybe not. No one rides the bus anymore. Ha. Have a good hiatus and writing vacation.

  3. Kristie that was a fun and happy day for us all. Our great grand daughters are just the so cute like there Mommy and Grandma.

    and yes kids do still sing the wheels on the bus go round.(grandpa was a bus driver until hr retired)
    Love you Mom and Dad
