I think I made a mistake for writing, "Leave Of Absence," especially to those of you who have been so loyal to ANPITS. Yes, I have my troubles like everyone else, and so what if I cannot write posts as often, I can still write words.

I just didn't want any of you to think I abandoned writing on my blog, as so many people are doing these days. I will continue to do the best I can and I appreciate your understanding, loyalty, and friendship.

Lately, I realize how important words are; words are the core of our souls, without lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; it is our fundamental nature to express ourselves without abandon.
And now, we have the best opportunity we’ve ever had to use them, so let’s use them wisely.

This passage was written by me, so I suppose I will eat a few words for breakfast this morning, with the exception of "expressing ourselves without abandon." :)))

Thanks for visiting A Nice Place In The Sun. Have a great day! 


Leave Of Absence

Unfortunately, I have take a leave of absence due to illness, but I will be back...so don't give up on me just yet. I have been blogging for a long time and I love many of you and appreciate the years of support, friendship, and laughter. So, I plan on returning as soon as possible and will post some videos in the meantime, I'm just not well enough to write to keep up.

In the meantime, please enjoy the posts I have archived and know I will return as soon as possible.

As always, thank you for visiting and have a super happy day!  


Dexter, My First Crush...Do You Remember Your First Crush?

Hello, and welcome to Tuesday's Question. I have a Doctor appointment out of town today, so if I do not respond to your answers today, I most certainly will tomorrow.  Thank you, Sandee of Comedy Plus for you wonderful answer to last Tuesday's Question and thank you Ann of Snap, Edit, Scrap.   for yours.

Please, if you have the time, read Sandee and Ann's answers to Sibling Rivalry they're simply fabulous and thanks to both of you for participating. I appreciate you.

Okay, this weeks question is:  

Do you remember your first crush?   Alright, I'll go first...

My first crush was on a boy named Dexter who sat next to me in the third grade and he was fascinating. Dexter had action figures hidden in his desk and maps he drew of oceans, rivers, mountains and streams.

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

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
