Save Your Money, Shop Resale
Plato’s Closet in Coral Springs, Florida is a treasure if you’re petite. It’s on University Drive with easy access from the Sawgrass Expressway. This is a resale shop but a very upscale one. The store is extremely well maintained, clean, organized and loaded with aisles of great clothing. They carry shoes, purses and sunglasses and a small amount of men’s, young mens clothing. Most of the clothing is aimed at younger women or teens. Again, they carry only what is in style ,now.
A small “woman sized” hammer is another handy little tool to have. The weight is easy to handle and I am not afraid to drive a small nail with it. You would be surprised at the number of things you need a small hammer for. I find that I can do a lot of things myself now that it would have never occurred to me to try before because I have tools that fit me.
Wade: I will be talking about “The Three H’s: Humor, Heartbreak and Honesty,” specifically, why those three are intimately intertwined, and how writers can and must overcome their fears about life and writing to unleash their true voice and funny wit. Only then can they be successful. I’ll also give writers tips on how to ground their humor in deep, meaningful storylines that makes their humor resonate and not simply serve as a punch-line. I’ll also talk about finding one’s real voice. As you know, voice is the only thing that separates authors, and fear is the only thing that prevents them from being honest. Can’t wait. I love to teach and inspire writers. And to talk about humor … I’m thrilled!
First, set a color scheme. Most fall tablescapes have warm, firey colors, like your reds, oranges, golds, and browns. If you don’t have china in this color, then bargain shop at places like TJ MAXX, Marshalls, and Walmart for 8 -12 solid placesettings in one of the above colors. You should check your local dallas thrift store as well. You will be able to use these dishes over and over again for years to come, so it will be money well spent.

Marge is the master of manipulation. She can open any door with her snout, including pocket doors. She also loves to unwrap gifts. If you have a birthday or Christmas, Marge better have a few presents of her own, or she’s coming after yours. I love to watch her gingerly unwrap the paper and then open the box with her mouth and paws. Mable really has no discernable skills, except unless you count eating and licking herself, which I do, since they are basically the same skills I have.
