Welcome to my first blog. I am celebrating because after six years of working on my book, “Ticked Off and Tickled About it,” you can now find it on Amazon as a paperback or on Kindle. In Santa Fe, New Mexico, where I live, it’s on the shelf at Collected Works Bookstore. The book contains forty humorous essays about everyday problems. The key word here is “humorous.”
Here you’ll find blogs about all kinds of everyday happenings. No religion. No politics. No bad language. Just fun stuff. I’m hoping you’ll want to join in by enjoying a cup of tea and a chocolate chip cookie and leaving comments. I’m planning to offer a new blog a couple of times a week.
The laugh is in you, at least that’s what I’m hoping. The book and the blog are pretty much about looking inside yourself to find the humor in otherwise frustrating events that might make you angry. It’s about seeing things in a new way that makes you grin, giggle, guffaw or just plain laugh. Read an essay and a blog every morning with your tea and cookie and you’ll begin the day in a happier mood.
The thing is, you can’t have Ellen or Tina or Oprah beside you every minute to keep you laughing. You need to learn how to create your own reasons to laugh. When you see how I do it, you’ll be doing it, too.
Seriously, we need to laugh more. Do you know that the medical community has now found that laughing helps keep you healthy? Of course, a lot of us have heard that for years but sometimes the docs are a little reluctant to latch onto an idea that doesn’t require a pill or surgery. After all, who hasn’t heard that “laughter is the best medicine?”
I’m hoping you’ll want to get acquainted and tell me some of your life stories.
Well, we don’t know each other that well yet so I won’t keep you. Hope you have a chocolate chip cookie a day. Chocolate helps mellow you. Just consider it good medicine. And anyway, it’s so doggone delicious.

Comments on: "The Laugh’s In You" (2)
I’m propped up in bed (not my tuffet) playing Little Miss Muffet and reading your Blog. I’m greatly enjoying it, along with my small pot of tea. While I’m eating banana bread (not chocolate chip cookies or curds and whey), I’m still very much in the Spirit of your tickled blog and thank you for the laughter.
Big congrats on your new book!
I shall return.
