2022’s Favorites – The Best That Came Out of the Wilderness

I have loved writing every day for the past 365 days! There have been posts written right up to the wire of my self-imposted deadline (posting at 1pm each day). Other days I have something written and have to be super patient to hold it till 1pm. Kicking this post off feels a lot like deja vu because right at the end of 2021 I almost dated a woman with 3 cats. In 2022, just a couple months ago, I dated a woman with 3 cats! What is it with me and these purry people? Do I have a type???? My allergies can’t handle these cat women.

I’ve had Florida as a home base for over a year now and I can hardly believe all that went on in 2022, from camping down to the Florida keys and west to Texas, to working as a videographer for an Indian wedding, and well, LIVING IN A CAMPER YEAR-ROUND! I’ve learned a lot, wrote a lot, and every day I wake up feeling cheesiest, Coach! OK, “cheesy” commercials aside, here are my top posts about TV commercials, a topic I really enjoy researching. Below are lists of my favorite posts and what to look forward to in 2023…


KIA’s All-New Sportage Beach Commercial

Amazon Prime’s Medusa Commercial

One A Day Commercial – New Medicine, Old Music


Anne Heche tries to get off stretcher

Gas stations and SoBe drinks

Camping Stories


The Unexpected Deer in Caprock Canyons

Who’s the Real Queen of Christmas?

A life-threatening encounter at a state park!


I try to have a theme every year. Last year was “full potential.” This year I’d love just not to be sick on Christmas and my birthday (December 25 and 26). COVID last year and some sort of cold this year, enough already! But on a serious note, my theme for 2023 is…

Real and deep.

That sounds a bit cryptic and maybe borderline inappropriate but I mean it with such sincerity! With this blog site, I want to go deeper with my posts and at the same time, be very real and honest about my feelings whether it’s dating, writing about my dogs, family, or anything else that comes up throughout the year.

Thank you SO MUCH for dropping in one last time in 2022. I love writing and appreciate all the comments and likes on my posts! Let’s keep it going in 2023 where I’ll try not to date anyone with 3 or more cats. See you next year!
