About winsomebulldog

I am a Southern-born and raised woman who moved north for the love of my Yankee husband. We met in 1987 and have been together ever since.

Loss

Katie’s gone… A glimpse of how she got her name, Katie-Bar-the-Door. This is the expression I loved most on her face. Joy. The image that inspired the winsomebulldog name.   And finally… Yesterday, at the emergency clinic. If you know me, … Continue reading

Buttered Rosemary Rolls
