Prepare to enter the wild and wooly world of an adult with Aspergers Syndrome, a form of autism characterized by intellignce, quirks, social difficulties and downright strange and oddish behaviours.

People with Aspergers generally are high functioning in everyday life but have great difficulty connecting with others due to the inability to read faces, body language and subtle verbal clues. They also tend to take words literally and have a hard time multi-tasking.

Oversensitivity to touch (clothing has to be soft and often the tags removed), light (do not leave home without the sunglasses), sound (loud noises and noisey places are avoided), taste (many Aspies have quite a limited diet and are frequently very picky eaters) and smells makes the everyday existence more of a challenge.

Fasten your seatbelts and come on in...

Being One Handed

A couple weeks back, I took a nasty fall and sprained my right elbow and hand. I really have little to no use of my right. I'm not complaining.....I've learned a lot...

Today's Puddingstones

Found all of these in thirty minutes at my church parking lot!!!!
 Feeling mighty rich and delighted!!!!!!

I Am...and You Are...

If I had a million dollars...

I would buy a state-of-the-art handicapped van for a most deserving friend. I would fly to California, stay a few weeks and help out a worthy friend. I would take my sweetheart on a long vacation. I would get a new roof and some home maintenance done.
 I'd love to be able to help out those in need. 
 Just putting it out to the universe. I have wishes:)

Puddingstones

My latest quest is hunting the elusive Drummond Island Puddingstone.

These are from Lake Huron, literally. I had to venture a few feet into the water to get them:)
The lower pic shows some I found in town in front of an office building.
I adore these jasper conglomerates. They are rare and highly unique to the northern Michigan area.

I hate commercials

I've hated television commercials for as long as I can remember. As a kid, they showed me things I could never have, toys, food, vacations and fun. 
They portrayed families happy together, parents who loved their children. Family gatherings of games, amusements, parties, good times. All lies and fabrications of a world I couldn't fathom.
 Then as I got older, I started buying those wonderful, fabulous things only to find out that they were flawed and seriously misrepresented...nothing like they were on television.
 Now, commercials painfully remind me, that I am nowhere near normal. I don't look forward to get away vacations. I try never to eat inside an actual restaurant. I'm not going drinking at a party or bar with friends. I sure as hell have no interest in the latest shoes, purse or fashion. I have zero interest in celebrities and the news is getting turned off more than naught because it's so slanted and gruesome.
 Some of the cable stations with their vampires, ghouls and walking dead have turned the usual G-rated ad into blood and gore that turn my stomach and my head away and reach for the almighty remote.
 Reality shows, talent shows are just plain mean and if that's reality, if that's how people treat other people, I want no part of it. 
 I deplore all holidays and don't need reminders that some are celebrating. 
 So many reasons why I hate commercials.
