My, but you are a curious bunch! Hello and welcome!! I knew I would get a bounce when Jen generously gave me a shout-out on her blog the other day, but, I just checked my stats and…WOW!

The one and only man in my life: Say Hello to My Little Friend. Hard to believe that this old man will be THIRTEEN years old this year. He’s a monster, but I love him.

It’s a rare warm, sunny day here in Perdido Key, FL and I’ve been sitting outside listening to the crashing waves and enjoying this gorgeous view as I work on my MacBook: And I’m being surprisingly productive! I could really get used to this. Anyone care to donate to the Reflections of a Paralytic beach house fund??

The interview starts a little after the 4 minute mark and runs for almost the whole hour. So, if you’ve got some time to kill and want to know a little bit more about your … Read More

In an effort to keep up with the many ways people keep track of their favorite blogs these days, I recently made this blog available on the Amazon Kindle. It was surprisingly easy – and free!

Do You “Like” Me…Or, My Blog, Anyway?

ChelseaPersonal3 Comments

I don’t know how great of an idea this is, but, if you’re looking for an easy way to keep follow my posts, check out the “official” Reflections of a Paralytic Facebook page. I’ve noticed several other bloggers doing this, so I thought I’d give it a shot, even though I’m pretty sure I’ve got only a fraction of their … Read More
