Life


Life appears to get in the way of what we want to do, when in fact it is exactly what we need to do.

Sorry I have not been on for so long.  Life has handed me American family and I some interesting hills and valleys as of late.

Everything is settling back down I think. Now it is time to focus on publishing my new book “The Great What If” and getting my Children’s Corner into more papers. I am hosting a colouring contest for newspapers during the month of Feb. So if you know of a paper that might be interested have them contact me by the 30th of January at noriangirl@yahoo.com so I may send them the image to publish along with the rules.

I hope to be back on here more.

Light and love to the lot of you,

McCollonough

 

Sorry for my Absence


I have been away for a long time, getting healthy again and working on getting my Children’s Corner syndicated.  For those of you who are still reading this site THANK YOU!!!  For sticking with me during the last seven months!!!

I am going to offer you something special to say thank you! Here are some of my Daily Children’s Corners for the month of Oct.  I hope you and the wee ones in your world enjoy them.

Please let me know if you are able to print them.  I am still working out the kinks in that part of my website.

Hello it is Me Dollar!!!


I had a wonderful time in Gulf Shores, AL. Here are some pictures of my adventures with my human.

DOLLARREADYFORTHETRIP She has discovered my hiding place.

DOLLARLOOKINGFORCREAM DOLLARSCREAMCREATION

first stop breakfast at the Country Kitchen.  I love building  towers with the creamier containers.

DOLLARDIGGING DOLLAROUTTHEOTHERSIDE

I got to build a tunnel in the sand.  Sadly it was not sturdy enough to withstand the weight of fast waves.

DOLLARLOVESBATHSALTS DOLLARBATHSALTS

I ate bath salts.  Humans put it on their hands to soften them, but I prefer to eat it.

This one restaurant had a sea tree, that was super fun to climb and hide in.  I loved hiding and surprise the children that came to eat lunch.

I am so strong that when I tried to life this fork, I bent it!

I hope you enjoyed this peek into my adventures in Gulf Shores.

Until next time.

Have fun and be helpful,

Love, Dollar

KING LEAR!


King Lear was entertainging  though hard to understand.  I was relieved to know that I am at least not the only one who found this play a bit of a challenge to follow.

The gist of it is that two sisters join forces to drive their father to madness and their baby sister to death. (why I am not sure)  It was fun see the costumes of the age, and try to understand Elizabethan English.  I am defiantly not fluent in that form of the Queen’s English.

If you get the chance I would recommend seeing it, if for not other reason than the enjoyment that is Shakespeare.  Wish I was able to converse with him on the pleasures of writing for the masses.
