All You Need is Love

Folly Beach, S.C.

What would you do without me to document these fleeting images? Huh, huh, huh?

I doubt that particular graffiti lasted long in the waves. I've since enlarged and given this picture to friends who married on the beach.

I have never been a public speaker and tend to operate behind the scenes but I've been front and center so often lately that hopefully I am learning something. Whew. This had better get easy soon. It's all very stressful for a shy girl.

The day before yesterday I was on Healthbeat TV, yesterday I was featured with a full page color picture in House Calls Magazine and this evening I was asked to speak to the Mended Hearts Support Group about my trip to Kenya. Since they were all former cardiac patients I took Dr. Sock Monkey down in my back pack and introduced them to the new doctor in town. I got a big kick out of having the former Mayor of North Charleston pose with the good doctor. Heheh.

Anyone have any chocolate in the house?


  1. Joan, I imagine your speeches to be as witty as your writings here.

    I NEVER have not chocolate in the house. Too dangerous. Gotta have that stash (or two). At work, a co-worker once called my desk drawer "the chocolate buffet."

  2. There is nothing chocolate or sweet in the entire house. Should I panic? Help.

  3. I have 5 Ferrero Rocher left and a packet of Cadbury's Hot Chocolate...

  4. We don't keep chocolate/candies in the house (maybe a drizzly, rich fudge syrup for an ice cream attack), so I laughed at a silly throw-away commercial on television about a woman hiding chocolate in the back of a kicthen drawer...then my wife said she did that, too. Should I begin to furiously hunt thru drawers in case you ring the bell? (Sock Monkey is welcome but may scare the guard dog Peke.)

  5. Frank - I can't hide anything from myself. I am always aware it is there waiting for me.


Leave me a comment. They make me strong.
