It was a beautiful fall day. Cool temps with a slight breeze that played with your hair, lots and lots of sun, A perfect day. A day Amber King would normally be singing some sappy song, while doing her errands.
The Mystery of the Casa Grande Domes
I'm a paranormal freak. I love stories about the paranormal, especially ones that are true ones. My favorite stories are ones based on urban legends. Urban legends like the Mothman or the Haunted Highways are mysterious and fascinating. Mysterious, in that no one knows how they got started, but are prevalent in their geographical area. Fascinating, because so many people have had their own personal experiences, making one wonder if the stories are actually true.
Yes, I'm Single and No I'm Not a Man Hater
I absolutely love it! I do not know how many times I've heard the speculation on why I'm still single. The major line of thinking is that I must be a man hater. I'm not.
Aging Is Just a Part of Life
I just turned 61-years-old, and for the most part I don't feel it. I have arthritis in my knees, and some minor aches and pains that tell me I'm getting older as well. At 61-years-old, I have also hit the invisible age wall that tells all employers that I'm too old to hire. People can try to tell me that it doesn't exist, but it does. I'm a military veteran with 20 years management experience, as well as customer service experience. I have a Bachelor's degree and I'm almost done with my Master's. Yet, the only job I have been able to get is a part-time job at minimum wage at Sam's Club Café. I have applied for every job where my experience matches the company's hiring requirements, but all I have received is the standard "thank you for applying; if your experience matches the skill set that fits the position, we will contact you for the next step in the hiring process." I'm still waiting.
