Sibling Rivalry

Hello, and welcome to A Nice Place In The Sun. I'm back...but I'm still regaining my sea legs, so I haven't written anything new and I've been worried about it. Then, this morning, I remembered a second grade essay written by my brother David and I realized I'm not the only writer in my family...I mean geez...;)

How long is he going to hold it against me?

Do you have any sibling stories to share? Can you guess my sibling David’s and my birth order? Am I younger or older than David? What birth order are you?

I cannot wait to read your comments...And thanks for visiting A Nice Place In The Sun. I appreciate it.

More posts coming soon...Have a great day!

I think we have all written bad things about our siblings back when we were young. I know I did.

I'm guessing you are the youngest since biting seems to be by the babies. So your the baby to your brother.

My sibling story is about when my mom came home with my sister and I was mad. I was about 4.5 years old and had been the only child until then. I didn't want any sisters or brothers and apparently I threw a bloody fit for quite a while. My parents laughed about this for years.

I'm the oldest and after a bit I was good with having siblings.

Have a fabulous day Annie. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to Simon. ♥♥♥

Laughing...I knew you would guess our birth orders. Yes, I'm the baby, of three children. So, you can only imagine how my oldest brother felt. In fact, I thought of him while I read your story, which, by the way is fabulous. I can sympathize with the way that would make the oldest feel, but then, you know what they say, there is something special about the first born, and I can certainly see that in you.

Thank you for putting up with my silliness and always being a good sport. You're a great friend. And I bet you were great with us baby biters. I love your story, "a bloody fit," great stuff.

I will send Simon your scritches...he loves comments when they're about him.

You have a fabulous day too, Sandee.

LOL, that is just too cute.
I had one brother who was older than me and for the most part we got along. Of course we had our moments.
One time we were just playing around and having fun. We took kitchen knives and were having a bit of a sword fight. My mother walked in and just about had a heart attack. We were being careful and we just couldn't see what the fuss was about....lol

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

Written for Ann

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-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'

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
