Keeping up with Glady's

Some of you may remember a post I wrote in November about a curious neighbor, who pretends she's minding her own business when she's not. I named her Glady's Kravitz, after the nosy neighbor in 1960's situation comedy, "Betwitched," because she will not tell me her name.

If you read the post, "Christmas Down South," you'll learn more about my neighbor, Glady's, who was spying on me while I was putting up my Christmas decorations. The windows are large in my apartment complex and the weather is nice, springlike, so my neighbors have their windows open, which most of us ignore, but not Glady's.

As I mentioned in "Christmas Down South," all people are curious, but southerners are downright nosy, although they pretend they're not. Well, I cannot say all southerners are like Glady's, 'cause after all, I'm a southerner.

It's just that some like to remain anonymous and ignorant of the truth, that way, it's easier to create drama while they enlist their buddies to help label others in their boxes. I think Glady's is the leader of the label crowd,  'cause she has a following of woman who pretend they're "fast walking" around the apartments, when they're really "fast talking."

You see, Glady's is home during the day so she's the one investigating my profile. Well, I guess, she is, I'm not sure because Gladys doesn't associate with me, after all, I'm a box label.

For one thing, I'm home during the day writing, so that's suspicious, plus, I live alone, another bewilderment, no man in sight, with the exception of a grown son, who hugs me when I meet him in the parking lot when he visits, along with his guitar. I'm sure Glady's gab chatter crowd thinks this young man, is my boyfriend, and he must be married, due to his untimely visits.

Anyway, I think Glady's is getting to me, 'cause when I started to stuff my fake tree in it's old box, I watched her decorating her tree with Mardi Gras lights. 

Then, when our eyes locked, she swished her drapes across her window as if she were pulling the mainsail of a ship.    

I do not know why it surprised me, because every store in South Louisiana was stuffing Mardi Gras decorations on their shelves the day after Christmas, and I'm sure Glady's and the "fast talkers,"were among the first in line.  The grocery stores have several fixtures dedicated to King Cakes, Mardi Gras beads, masks, etc...

In any event, I hope I will be able to enjoy Glady's lights because my tree is going back in it's Christmas box. But, on the other hand, I may ask my handsome boyfriend to string some Mardi Gras lights on the outside window.  

After all, I have to keep up with Gladys.

P.S- Now, I'm too tired to take my tree down. Tell me, should I put my Christmas Tree in front of my window?

Motherhood- Courage

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons






Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Ann Clemmons

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Catch your dreams


Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
