Who or What is She?

  • She calls herself Lauren but is also known as Mom, Gramma, Lar, and, once upon a time, Peach.
    An ex-suburbanite who moved to the wilds of the Sonoran Desert and decided to raise fiber animals, fowl creatures, 3 halflings, and one pint-sized farmer without a clue as to how. Join Lauren as she learns how to file alpaca teeth, shear a horny goat, raise 3 teenagers and 1 grandchild while cooking dinner and doing the laundry with her other six arms.

Thank you...thank you very much! Wow, Lauren! Who would have thought that a late night and a brain on drugs could come up with this story...but then, is it a story? (wink, wink)


(Thanks again!)




a very deserving winner!


I agree! A very deserving win!! Congratulations, Kathy. I truly got a kick out of your story. When I lived in Colorado I heard great stories about the Low Desert Jackalope --- even saw a postcard or two purporting to show one!!



It's all those years working with juvenile delinquents - I go dark first, and always get surprised by "good" kid behavior. OK, plus I have a strange sense of humor.

I loved the winning story!

The Truth Is Out There. When I read the Jackalope tale (no pun intended) I knew my brain, even on steroids, could never come up with something desert-y, and mammal-y, and X-Filey. Way to go. I am so jealous about that yarn, though. Even though I can't knit.


Thanks, Guys! Funny thing was that as my DH was headed for bed, he saw me furiously clicking away on the keyboard, never paying attention to him as he kissed me goodnight. It must've been the pain meds...that's my "story" and I'm sticking to it! :)
