A Dollar Bill December 3, 2010by Judy Gosnell on 12/05/10
Dave and I got home from shopping, and I got the mail, then sat down and opened a large envelope which was a request to fill out a survey form...and at the bottom of it was a dollar bill (real) and at the exact moment I saw it, on TV, Opie Taylor (the Andy Griffith Show) excitedly showed his dad, Sheriff Taylor, a dollar bill and said "DAD, I GOT THE DOLLAR BILL". Oh how I love those synchronicities!!
Bobby Birdsall Appears in the Melting Snowby Judy Gosnell on 09/26/10
This has to be one of the strangest events that ever happened to me. I was in Colorado, it was spring, early 1980s, melting snow, in a big parking lot at the ski area (Steamboat) I was absolutely heartbroken over my then husband's affair...and was reading a book I had purchased in Oregon, by Sondra Ray (You Deserve Love) while walking around the perimeter of the parking lot. The snow around the lot was melting, and there were little rivulets running aout like lace from the snowbanks into the empty parking lot. I am rapt...reading...the author has a chapter about her friend Bobby Birdsall...and I had just opened that chapter, with that chapter heading. At that moment, I looked down and saw a little corner of white paper sticking out from under the melting snow; I reach down and pull it from the snowbank. I turn it over. It's barely wet. It is a business card. It reads..."Bobby Birdsall, Certified Ski Instructor" with a Steamboat phone number. Seriously!!! Go ahead, figure the odds on that one!! No, not the same Bobby Birdsall, but even if it had been...
DOROTHY'S MAGIC RED SHOESby Judy Gosnell on 09/12/10
Surely you remember Dorothy's magic red shoes, from WIZARD OF OZ?
If and when she clicked them together, they would take her back "home".
If you owned them, and clicked them together...where would you go? Where would "HOME" be? I'm thinking carefully about this, because I expect those shoes to show up UPS any day now. Or, does Glenda bring them?
