Tamira Thayne's "Untethered"

Happy National Margarita Day! I haven’t had one myself, but I encourage you to go for it…sometimes a “me and hard liquor” combo doesn’t end well for anyone. But that’s a story for another time…

It is fitting, though, because this is my birthday week, which expands from just a day to a week as you grow older because—let’s face it—you got nothing else going for ya. So Happy 58 To Me! I’ve been told I don’t look a day over 70, so there’s that.

Imagine has finally left that dreaded backyard and reached The Rescue Center, hallelujah! That’s a Happy Birthday to me, too. There was nothing I loved more than bringing in a new formerly chained rescue pup to our rescue center and giving them back the happiness every dog deserves. I’ve based the mythical Freedom Chaser Rescue Center on the one I started and ran at the…

Tamira Thayne's "Untethered"

Today is World Hippo Day. Have you done anything for hippos today? No, me neither, but I guess there’s always time to remedy that with a donation to a worthy nonprofit, eh? I mean, it’s not like we can wade in and rescue one, so I assume supporting an org who does is the way to go.

I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day, whether you’re your own Valentine or not…always a good excuse to treat yourself if you don’t currently have a S.O.! The hubs ended up having to work later in the day, so we had a nice lunch together and then he went to work and I took myself to the movies, as one does.

I didn’t ask for the senior discount—I have no idea what the age is for that, and I’m not eager to know—but the kid working the counter informed…

Read FREE! Episode 12 of Imagine: Life on a Chain. Rescued…For Real this Time?

Here’s Episode 12 of author Tamira Thayne’s FREE READ! Check it out.

Tamira Thayne's "Untethered"

Welcome to lovely February, month of Valentines and proposals, apparently. In checking my new handy calendar of all things holiday, today, February 8th, is ostensibly Proposal Day.

I, for one, propose that we all stay in bed all day, how’s that for a proposal we can all get behind? Fine, we’ll do it tomorrow instead, since we’re too late to commence the plan today. True confession, I may have started without you yesterday…but today I’m back on the straight and narrow and providing you with another episode of Imagine: Life on a Chain.

Interestingly enough, the hubby actually did propose to me today, having no foreknowledge that today was Proposal Day. Eerie! He bought us new wedding bands in the trendy style of matchy-match that were supposedly created from meteorites, and they came in today. So he reproposed to the woman who’s made him crazy for the last thirteen years…

Episode 11 of author Tamira Thayne’s “Imagine: Life on a Chain” novella is now live! Check it out.

Tamira Thayne's "Untethered"

Good Tuesday to you all, from one of your (probably numerous) pandemic slacker acquaintances. I see so many people going to town with their creative efforts during this time, and I’m envious but lazy.

I so wish I was one of them! Apparently just not enough to get my butt off the couch and my nose out of a book…

Speaking of which, I’ve never been a football fan, but I read an article today about Tom Brady retiring. It talked about how he never let others’ opinions of him sway his belief in himself, made his own truth. Don’tcha wish we could just bottle that up and sell it? I know I’d be first in line! [Or 20th, or 2,000,000th…depends if I was reading a good book at the time.]

Today we unveil episode 11 of my fiction novella, Imagine: Life on a Chain. Imagine’s background tale is…
