As a teenager, I spent many hours in my room with headphones on listening to very loud music. Now, I get paid to do it. Still not sure how I managed that!
I grew up on a farm in Florida riding horses, motorcycles and surfing. I don't surf much anymore, but I still ride horses and motorcycles. I love nothing more than long, all day motorcycles rides. I'm sort of an adrenaline junkie and pretty much your all American girl, as happy in a pair of cowboy boots, or motorcycle boots, as I am in heels. Oh, and I'm a Gator fan. But I'll cheer for Georgia, as long as they're not playing the Gators.
I love to cook and I grow my own herbs. Not pot -- real herbs for cooking!
I love all types of music, but I think my favs are classic rock and country. They just seem to speak to me.

The other night I was on the back porch and a huge rhinoceros beetle attached itself to my ankle. I tried to shake it off. It wouldn’t shake. I had to reach down there, grab it and fling it across the porch.
It landed near the cat (Stubbs). It Tried to crawl up Stubb’s leg. Stubbs shook it off. It tried to climb on his other leg. Stubbs flung him across the porch.
Little did I know at the time, there was a baby raccoon lurking in the shadows on the porch. Let me explain. We have been feeding a racoon on our back porch for about two years now. Each of those last two years, around April, she gives birth. Eventually, when the babies are almost as big as she is, we see them. One of those babies was lurking in the shadows on the purch.
And the craziest thing happened. He or she ran up to the beetle, picked him up with his hands, and put the beetle in its mouth. I heard the loudest crunk I think I have ever heard. It was both the grossest and coolest thing I think I have ever seen.
I am officially an outlaw! Facebook Jail -- Sentence: 24 hours.
And, it wasn't even anything that should have been controversial. Both memes I GOT OFF FACEBOOK! Both memes ARE FUNNY!
Actually, I've got them reversed here and I'm too lazy to change them. The first one was about a week ago, a picture of a bottle of Crown Royal as a suggested remedy for the Coronavirus. Hilarious, right? I thought so. But Nooooooooooooo! Facebook says it goes against their community standards. The second, about a week later, May 5. The Butthurt Remover. Hilarious right? I agree! But Noooooooooooo! It goes against Facebook Community Standards.
Texas Democrat Gary O'Connors can call GOP Senator Tim Scott an Oreo on Facebook and Twitter. Others can call him Uncle Tim. That's just fine. I can't post a funny meme. You can use the F- Word on Facebook, in a post or in a meme. No problem. Get a grip Facebook.
However, not even Facebook can shut me up. I have my own radio show. And this blog! Hahahahahaha! Take that Facebook. And, while you're at it Kiss My Ass!!!!!!!
