Hello, all! Been crazy busy…

Hello, all! Been crazy busy lately – I bought a house, sold a house and moving to Tennessee I August. But I wanted to share a post I just published. I hope you like it.

A Passion and a Mission: Another Back Story

Hello, all! Long time, no…

Hello, all! Long time, no “see!” My fault, I fear. 🙄😆 But I have been trying to get back into blogging regularly, and have started what I hope will become a series, called “The Back Story.” Here is a link to the very first article! And @dancinglightofgrace – glad to see you’re still here!

Hi, everyone! It’s been a…

Hi, everyone! It’s been a hot/humid and/or a wet/humid and/or a wet/cold/humid summer in New Jersey. Does that sound schizophrenic? Well, it actually just means it’s a typical NJ summer! 😊
It’s also been a summer of challenges -I guess the biggest one was that my sweet little dog died peacefully in his sleep a few weeks ago. The second resulted in the attached post. I hope that it encourages and challenges you.

Hi, all, it’s been a…

Hi, all, it’s been a long time. I finally wrote something again, https://mrsjackieo.wordpress.com/2017/03/24/focus/
I am trying to get back on track. Hope to ‘see’ you all again soon.

Hello, all. Sorry I haven’t…

Hello, all. Sorry I haven’t been around much. I told you earlier this summer that we moved to our new home, and we have been busy settling in. But life took a sudden turn for me last week. I have tried to write about it as I feel able on my blog mrsjackieo.wordpress.com. Thank you for your patience.

Here’s a question travel agents just love (heavy sarcasm) to hear in the other end of the phone..”Hello, Jackie. It’s … Where am I?”

It happened to me more than once. One such call went like this.

“Hello, it’s…” 

“Hi, how can I help you today?” 

(Pause) “Jackie, where am I?”

(Longer pause on my end.) “Well, according to your reservation, you should be in Fayetteville. Why?”


“Uh, no, North Carolina. Why?”

“My meeting is in Arkansas. I thought it was funny when I had to change planes in Charlotte.”

By now, everyone in my office is laughing hysterically.  “Didn’t you read your ticket when it was delivered? ”  “No, I just stuck it in my briefcase. How can I get to a Fayetteville, Arkansas, today.”

“Well, I’m afraid you can’t get there from where you are – you need to come back to Newark or Philadelphia and leave from there.”

(Another pause.) “I guess I should read my tickets from now on.”

You think?
