About elizabethblack


Just a reader, not a writer. I strive to be quiet and listen. I have opinions, but try hard to be respectful and not let an opinion of mine, expressed without care, cause upset.
I live in a very rural area. A beautiful area, but have to drive a distance for a real choice in shopping.
I don't have the time I'd like to have to be online reading and participating in the forums.

Seems real life and it's demands get in the way of the complete life of leisure I desire.

If only I had self cleaning everything - and four full time gardners. I love to garden, but the weather must be absolutely perfect. Just looking forward to spending more time here and reading and getting familiar.

WA-HOO, and mega-congrats, Ms B, not only on having your first solo story in forever being posted but on it becoming one of the few (if any) which reached 'Story Picks' status on its first day. You go gal! ;)

Here's your well-deserved tea, and I'll leave one on the counter for Larry. No charge. Mendalla is still trying to figure out the travel voucher Fuzzy submitted for his bike voyage through the Ozarks last weekend.

Oh what a delightful lift I am getting from all this kind attention. And thank you for the iced tea. I can't believe everyone has been so kind (or bored) to jump on reading my story. 'Course I do believe Larry may have had a lot to to with publicizing that I was doing my first. That helps when someone blows your horn for you.

And I am very happy to see more of our people here. I don't envy Mendalla trying to figure the travel voucher, but I have heard they charge outrageous prices to park bicycles but I've never read why they charge so much. Maybe Fuzzy can do a report on that.

Gosh! there are so many nice people in the world. <img src="/images/emoticons/hello2.gif" alt="hello1">

Thank you all for suggesting it and having these fun challenges. I wrote my first story for it today and it was approved right away. I'm grinning so. Feels good.

Well! I am going to announce that I have joined the pack here. I submitted my first alone story today. And it is a Challenge one too. Have to admit I had someone very handsome and kind (Larry) help me not get all tangled up and frustrated. What a happy day. I think I'll have an ice tea with lemon. Deep sigh.

Back to School Challenge: High School Disaster Averted

  High school is starting and I should be so excited.  I am going to high school and my expectations are over the moon.  Maybe just a little nervous ‘cause there will be so many students and teachers there I haven’t met.  I don't know if any of my friends will be in my classes. Makes me nervous to have all new people. It still feels warm, but knowing the cooler autumn weather is just...

Bewitched and Beguiled

The world revolves my angel, and once more   The time is coming when the days grow short, When happy thoughts of summer flee away,  And all around is desolate and bare.  Come fly with me to some exotic shore,  Where bathed in golden light, we two can sport, Dancing gaily on the strand all the day,  And through the night mount high into the air.   O cruel lady, tell me what I've done, ...
