Welcome to the Great American Experiment

Welcome to Fruit to Nuts, my first blog. I chose the name with the unintended help of a pesky little squirrel. I was out checking the progress of my grape crop (I like making wine and jelly, I like drinking and eating it even better) when I heard scampering and caught the slightest glimpse of fur diving behind a fence post. I approached loudly, shaking vines and leaves. No movement. I thought I must be imagining things. Then I peeked behind the post and nestled behind a clump of grapes was the rascal. He took off, jumped to the near-by pecan tree and laughed at me from above my head. Now I need to find a way to keep him and his family from eating my future wine supply and pecan pies.

You might ask what my blog is all about, well, the title says it all. Fruit to Nuts covers just about anything under the clouds. It will have humorous accounts of my daily life. My learned wisdom on how to live in harmony with others without being hunted down for manslaughter. No blog from a woman would be complete without advice on children (my daughter has provided me with enough info and insight for a 20 volume set of books.) Eat you heart out Dr.s Dobson and Spock. I may just go to a random writing prompt and post that. I plan to share some of my short stories and poems too. Most of all, I want to have fun with my blog. As I get into the whole blog experience, I will share other sights etc with you. Good-bye for now, stay tuned for my adventure to the Florida Mall.


  1. Finally....I made it backwards to your very First blog entry....and none to gently either. I have stumbled off my chair from time to time, caused a little havoc with my two beagles when I burst out laughing( they looked at me like I was nuts before sighing and drifting back off to sleep), and even left some DNA on your site with my tears of joy when reading each and every posting. My only complaint is...."NOW I have to WAIT for the next one"...make it quick girl. Us redheads hate waiting.....lolol
