I really couldn’t control this pony

Walking in Mississippi with my little man

Humid Memphis summers call for some sort of pool in every yard

Mommy & Adam photo WIN: The horse made this strange noise right as we were about to take the photo. Both of us were startled and those were our actual faces. Epic.

Upon engaging in some light reading before bed [‘Trial of the Will’Christopher Hitchens], I suddenly found myself wide awake.  When will I learn my lesson regarding the written word while as I’m preparing to sleep?  Probably never.  Don’t do it, Sloane.  Just put the book/magazine/laptop down and turn off the lights.  Lie there motionless in the dark.  Reading will not make you tired.  It will stimulate your brain and add hours to your day.

….so I’m cutting myself off right here.  Hitch already has me pondering the notion of whether or not I am stronger from that which does not kill me.  Instead of yielding to the urge to write before bed [which is even more dangerous than merely reading], I’ll turn on the television and watch Ghost Adventures.  Problem solved.

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,



About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
