HOW NOT TO SELL A CAR

craigslist_carforsale

When we began looking for an inexpensive used car for our son, we quickly discovered that people don’t always use all their brain power when selling a vehicle. After practically living on Facebook Marketplace, OfferUp, and Craigslist for several weeks, I found myself wondering if these people really do sell their cars with such pathetic salesmanship. Let me give you a few examples of ads from people selling on the internet. Continue reading “HOW NOT TO SELL A CAR”

It is my birthday today. I am 59.  It is hard to believe that I have managed to stay alive for almost 60 years, because even though you may not think it to look at me, I have lived a wild and dangerous life. Continue reading “MY WILD AND DANGEROUS LIFE”

MY LIFELONG AVERSION TO PEOPLE

stock-hiding-behind-bush-2

People.

Most of my life I have lived to avoid them. I go to matinees at theaters so there will be no one in front or in back of me. I take advantage of early bird specials at restaurants not for the deals, but to escape the crowds. And I wake up early to go shopping for the sole purpose of purchasing my groceries before the throngs descend. Continue reading “MY LIFELONG AVERSION TO PEOPLE”

SINGING FOR THE SICK AND DYING

During my husband’s ministry as a pastor to the Hispanic community, we became friends with an elderly woman named Magda. Magda was an outwardly tough, no nonsense lady who had a tender heart and an inspiring faithfulness to her Lord. So when we learned that Magda was in the hospital dying, we immediately went to see her. Recognizing the need to comfort Magda in her final hours, my husband asked our daughter Sarah to sing to Magda. Continue reading “SINGING FOR THE SICK AND DYING”

CHRISTMAS AT STAPLES

staples-2
From time to time our family has what we call “A Pena Family Outing.” A Pena Family Outing is an event that is either simple and mundane, or that goes awry in some way, but is looked upon fondly (and sometimes unfondly) as an adventure. We have had many of these adventures, but one in particular comes to mind at Christmas time.

ARE MILLENNIALS DESTROYING THE WORLD?

unknown-3

It seems like there are a lot of articles floating about the internet these days about that horrid group of young folk labeled “millennials.” One article in particular summed up the atrocities of this odious group of upstarts, saying millennials have killed 29 things in the year 2016 alone. Among the 29 items listed were handshakes, bars of soap, the wine, hotel,and napkin industries, the Olympics, McDonald’s Mcwrap and Big Mac, Canadian tourism, the Mexican internet, democracy, the EU, and all of America!

THE HOUSE FROM HELL

I loved my little house on the hill. It was an older home in need of renovation, but it was quiet and peaceful with a wonderful sense of openness, and it always felt like home. So when we had to sell our little house on the hill after my husband lost his job, I was devastated. Continue reading “THE HOUSE FROM HELL”

POLITICAL POSTING

Election season. The time when the majority of Facebook users decide to vocalize their political views, participate in endless arguments, ruffle the feathers of friends, family, and foes, and altogether go a little nuts! I know. I’ve gotten caught up in the madness myself. Many times. Continue reading “POLITICAL POSTING”
