Facebook Tell-All

What is it about Facebook that makes ordinarily quiet and reserved people perfectly willing to share intimate details about themselves, sometimes even including confessions about criminal activities.

It’s an OCC-OCC-OCD World! (December 2015)

Tuesday, December 15, 2015.  I haven’t posted an update in a couple of months, perhaps because three deaths in the family occurred recently.

I’ve only slept three hours in two days! The reason: pure pain from intense itching. You see, I’ve been the victim of a vicious, three-pronged attack: mosquitos, […]
