Saturday my granddaughter Paisley came over for few minutes. Her Daddy, one of my Lion Cubs, was helping with some new furniture. So Paisley and I went to the back fence where there are lots of shrubs and who knows what else. She followed our pup Rosie. Rosie went beyond “the zone” and Paisley was bent over trying to find her. I whispered and said “Paisley, what do you see?” “Do you see Big Foot?”…she shook her head and said “Yes”…I whispered and said “Do you want to go back there and find him?”…she whispered and said “no”….That’s all it took! Busted out laughing! Love my grandbabies!

We all have a special place we like to go to. I have a friend who loves her cruises, another who loves her St. Louis Cardinals, so if there is a game and she can be there, she’s got a seat! I work with a lady who loves to go unwind at the casino, (that’s fun, but I lose $20.00 I start getting a bit on the jittery side) I have a cousin who loves to go out and shoot guns with her husband, and a cousin-in-law who just can’t get in enough world travel.
There are so many places in our lives that just make us happy and bring us contentment. My Lion King and I love to take a ride on the Harley. He is a full blown biker who will grab that moment every chance he gets. As much as I would love to ride with him every time, I seem to have other commitments way to often. We go to Blues, Bikes & Barbecue every year in Fayetteville, AR. That is one place I love! We go into a whole other world away from our work place and most of our family. It’s almost like we have a secret life that not everyone is comfortable stepping into. We do that for 3 days, and then step back into the every day grind. But I love it!
I have to say though, as much as I love going to Arkansas, and other places as well, in the words of Dorothy Gale (Wizard of Oz), “There’s no place like home”. I told my co-worker this evening when leaving work, “I just want to get home to my happy place”. That my dear friends is where it’s at. If your den is happy,that should be your favorite place. If it’s not, your den need’s a fixin. Roar like a Queen, and start it, now!
Hugs, Love, Peace & Roars,
