Now most of you have heard me talk of meeting a wonderful lady, author, poet and activist Maya Angelou. If you are wondering, I met her many years ago when I was at a meet and greet. You see my college professor took the class over to see her. What I thought would be another boring class turned into a very interesting class and the start of me writing poetry on and off and now I am writing a book. You will hear more about that in the post. I think the one thing I did learn from her was to go for your dreams and if you really want to do it, you will work at it until you get it.
Let me ask you all a question and please be honest with yourselves. Have you ever started a project that started out small like cleaning out a space in your garage, basement, kitchen, craft room, a writing project and etc….? I have. In fact just recently this happened to me.
Some of you may have noticed I haven’t blogged for a while. I assure all of you everything is fine(at least for now) with Queen Daisy Mae And I. I just made a post this Afternoon. Anyhow here’s why I haven’t blogged for a while. I have an author friend who I was trying to write a poem for as a gift from me and well to say the least the poem never happened but as I kept writing, I noticed it kept getting longer and longer. When I realized I had the starting of a book with someone else’s characters I stopped and emailed the author and explained what had happened. In the return email I received the biggest surprise. She gave me her blessing to keep writing. So that is what I have been doing. Writing my very first book. Until I am done I will be posting on and off. As of today, I am at 26,350 words. That’s Chapter 15. I’m more than half way to my goal. YEAH!!
Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Hi everyone, Daisy Mae here with another edition of my famous Cat Quotes. OK, so the quotes are from a mini calendar that Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystals sister got her for her birthday/Christmas. Well I’m not going to keep you any longer from my famous cat quotes so without further adieu here they are.
Cats only assume their strangest, most intriguing, and most beautiful postures when it is impossible to photograph them.
Cats are cool. They have style, personality, sophistication, and just the right amount of confidence.
Since each of us is with only one life, why not live it with a cat?
Thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this.
I rarely meddled in the cat’s personal affairs, and she rarely meddled in mine. Neither of us was foolish enough to attribute human emotions to our pets.
The cat: an animal that’s so unpredictable, you can never tell in advance how it will ignore you the next time.
It always gives me a shiver when I see a cat seeing what I can’t see.

POEM BY: Crystal Stewart
Written in 2018
17 years ago today was a very, very sad day
Because a terrible thing called a terrorist
attack happened. Two planes flew into the
Twin Towers and that killed a lot of people.
The people who did this also tried to fly
A plane into the Pentagon but because the
People on the plane had a mission in mind
And they knew they had two chances
Slim and none so they gave it their best shot
And thanks to those people on the plane,
Who willingly gave their lives to save the people
At the Pentagon from certain death
By crashing the plane in a field.
Those people may not of realized then but
They are heroes in more ways than one.
We are very thankful for these people who
Turned into heroes and we are very glad they
“Let it roll” and decided to play the role of hero.
So when something terrible is about to happen
And you need to make a decision of what to do
Remember the situation these people were in and
The decision they made and how it helped them.
After remembering what they did might make
Your decision a little bit easier.
I know its Saturday but I have Pretty flowers to show you. Sadly our Sunflowers and Brown-Eyed Susans our well gone to seed. The Sunflower heads get put on food table for the deer, birds and whatever will eat the food. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Writing book reviews can be fun or it can be frustrating. Let me explain. You see writing reviews on my blog and Goodreads is easy and fun. However, if you want to write a review on Amazon you have to purchase so much on Pay Pal, Debit Card, Credit Card and etc… They have strict rules.
I bought about 100+ books for free of different reviews and have received 3 books from 2 different authors for my honest reviews. No thanks to Amazon I can’t review a book on Amazon unless I spend a minimum amount of $50.00 I think. Not Good. I’m going to contact them again and see what happens. Right now I’m not a “happy camper”. Wish me Luck. I’ll need it.

For a while now I’ve been debating to write on this topic or not. My mission is to get everyone to make good choices not bad choices. Some of you may not like what I have to say in this post and you may disagree with my opinion and that’s OK because we are allowed to have our own opinions whether we agree or not. Now on with the post.
I don’t know about those who live somewhere other than the USA, but there seem to be more commercials in between tv programs. The commercials I’ve been seeing lately is what inspired me to write this post. Those particular commercials are about calling drugs a disease. That’s right, I said disease. But are drugs really a disease or just a very bad choice? These commercials seem to think they are disease. Before I tell you my opinion and why I feel this way let’s look at the definitions of Choice and Disease.
Disease: a disorder of structure or function in a human, animal, or plant, especially one that produces specific signs or symptoms or that affects a specific location and is not simply a direct result of physical injury. (Noun)
Choice: An act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities.
My opinion is that drugs are a very bad choice and not a disease. I took plenty of time to make sure this is what I really felt because I get angry at commercials like this and yell at the television even though they can’t hear me. Why do I feel this way? I feel this way because if you really think about it, you’re making a choice to do drugs or not to do drugs. A choice not a disease. Oh sure you can rationalize that it’s a disease by telling yourself and convincing yourself because it’s considered an epidemic it should be called a choice but it’s really a choice because you choose to do drugs or not.
In conclusion, this not only applies to drugs but to alcohol, smoking and many other things too but I’m focusing on drug commercials right now.
If you have a relative, friend or just know someone who needs help there are plenty phone numbers sites on the internet you can go to and there is help for family and friends. There are even support groups for you too.
I wish you all the best.
I got this picture of what looks like a squirrel looking into the trail camera. I showed it to both Mom and Dad and got two different opinions. What a surprise. Mom agrees with me it’s a squirrel and dad doesn’t agree it’s a squirrel. What do you think? I personally think it’s a cool picture either way. I would sure love to know what you think. Please let me by putting your opinion in the comment section or by using the contact form provided below. Below is the Picture. **Please Note that the time is 9:37 PM Eastern Time*. Odd Hah?
A little over a week ago I went on vacation with my family to Treasure Lake up at Dubois, PA. I had so much fun I didn’t want to leave. Below are some of my vacation pictures. ENJOY!!
No I’m not leaving WordPress. The last 3 months just have been busy and hectic. In May my nephew went to Trump Tower(not allowed inside), My first niece graduated college and entered the Doctorate Program at Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania and my fourth niece graduated highschool with distinctive honors. This was all over Mother’s Day Weekend. Below is a picture of the outside of Trump Tower.
June is my busiest month. I start with my youngest sister’s wedding anniversary, My niece’s highschool graduation party(which I was unable to go to), My Mother’s birthday and My parents’ wedding anniversary. Below is a Picture of my Mother’s Birthday cake.
I went to the doctor, Went on vacation with my family and Won a book called SWEET BREATH of MEMORY by ARIELLA COHEN. Fantastic book. I took an unexpected break from WordPress because I was recovering from being sick(almost 100% but not quite). Feeling better so I’m not going back for my follow-up appointment unless I have to.(Please Note follow-up appointment not scheduled yet). My one sister who is a fraternal twin(not to me) just starting to have problems with her toes. I would show you the picture she sent but because of how bad it looks I’m choosing not to show you. I hope you all understand. When It rains it pours doesn’t it?
