Welcome to my weekly edition of Friday Fragments…
I would first like to thank unknown Mami for agreeing to host Friday Fragments for the summer so Mrs. 4444, could take a well deserved break. If you would like to join us, please do…
I just read her post (Unknown Mami’s) and I have to tell you I am SO upset because I had a similar experience last night in real life. I am just going to say that the double standards we all live by need to stop before we are so far gone the damage may never be undone. We ALL need to take a good look in the mirror and treat everyone the way we want to be, treated even online.
Some good news: I love the Women on the Verge site. It is a group of the most diverse women but everyone not only respects one another but we support one another as well. The site had over two-million- hits last month and guess what? My post ‘Good Girl Disease’ was the most read post of the month. I was so excited!

Our annual reunion/beach vacation was last week. My husband’s family has been going to this beach at this time every year for like their whole lives. We start planning for the following year the minute the week is up. Last year we did just that. By January, we had a house picked out, John and I requested the time off and our kids all requested the time off. 8 days before we were supposed to leave the realtor called to tell us there was a problem with the house and it was not available. Not to worry she said, I found you another and it is beautiful. The only glitch is it is 3 towns away. My husband and I were devastated. Our hearts hurt the entire week. That realtor does not get that it is a 56 -year-old tradition for my husband that he has passed on to our kids and grandkids. She doesn’t understand why we are so upset. We had our first date, our first kiss, and we got married on THAT beach, during the family beach week. We celebrate our anniversary there every year. My stepson’s ashes were scattered on that beach. The memories go on and on and the memories we missed this year will hurt us forever.
This picture was taken in March. We took 3 of our granddaughters to see the beach house:(
My friend Joelle’s cancer is back. Our friend Tina is on her way to North Carolina right now to fill in for Joelle’s hubby who is in Afghanistan. Please keep her and her family in your prayers and good thoughts. I am hoping to head down there myself as soon as I recover from my hopefully last jaw surgery on Wednesday.
I am really hoping my Friday Fragment friends have some good news fragments this week. I’m getting depressed with my ownL
Summer has finally arrived to the Philadelphia area. It is HOT! It finally stopped raining.
Do you have an extra billion bugs where you live this summer? We are infested with ants, mosquitoes and beetles and some others I have never seen before.
I need to write a lot of words this weekend.
I would love if you would follow me on twitter:

Just curious who is your favorite founding father and why?
Have a happy and blessed rest of your 4th of July weekend.
