About the Writer


          The title of this blog refers to the way my mind works. Thoughts and ideas are always “…jumping around like fleas on a hot griddle.” That’s how my eighth grade Latin teacher, Mrs. Bradham, described our early teen brains.

I now fill my days writing, working in the yard, building shelves (I love to organize.), and thoroughly enjoying every minute. As a friend of a friend said, “Every day is Saturday night.”
