Where we’ve been …


We have been away from blogging over three and a half months this time around. Little did either of us know what these three months would hold, it has been scary, sad and life changing. Lessons learned and circumstances we are choosing not to share at this time. Please, understand this is not meant to be rude, uncaring or unfeeling to any of you still reading. Life is precious and short and health, family and love are definitely first…Always.  We both want to say we have missed you kind readers and friends and truly appreciate you all and how we were welcomed in this blogging world. With all that has gone on and is still happening, we both have agreed that we are very uncertain about returning to Word Press. All we as “Twins Forever” want you all to know that if we are unable to return is… Thank You to each and every one of you for taking the time to read our words and get to know us. God Bless you all…

Hugs from Autumn and Gabby

Twins with four legs Each


Just look at these twins,

they are meant to win

the survival of  the wild

each is only just a “child”

let’s hope they grow up strong

knowing right from wrong

stay away from cars

come out of the forest to see the stars

be careful who they trust

that is a must!!

Nature at it’s best

puts animals to the test

to live and learn

as they nibble on ferns

walk careful and know

that  they will soon grow

but for now they’re still small

not too big at all

the beauty shows in their eyes

please humans, don’t make them cry …

Inner Child Alert!


This is my own personal idea and no it’s not a bizarre or unusual holiday. I made this one up all by myself and I am proud of this shout out. Listen up kind readers…It’s a day for all of us to let our inner child out to play! 🙂 Come on, it’s a good day as any and we all need to give this one a whirl!

I am inspired today, I was in the park near my house. Wow, what fun these kids were having! Such smiles, and happiness just flowing like crazy. I was over at the park walking around and just having a peaceful hour, but these kids got me so inspired. I met up with the sweetest young mother and her two daughters, they were a pair of 5-year-old twins! I loved seeing a set of young twinnies play and jump about with all that excitement. They were just having a blast on the swings, then were just having a grand time on all the other playground equipment. I have to admit I joined in taking a turn on the swings myself and then I was in for a quick game of tag.

The twins and their Mom thought it was so awesome that I was also a twin…It took me back to Autumn’s and my younger days! 🙂 A few more kids arrived at the park and soon everybody was just having a fun time of it all. I find myself reverting to childhood among these young kids…Not one ounce of an embarrassment coming from me! I am either the silliest person you would want to meet or just a free flying kid in the disguise of a grownup. 😉 The whole concept of letting our inner child out to frolic for a little while today or any day is just such a great idea. Or have I been bitten by the Peter Pan Syndrome bug? Nope, I think not…I just like letting my inner child have a turn every now and then.

It was a fun hour or so, I plan on taking an hour or so each and everyday to let the inner child within me go for it! Yay, for our inner children…Do any of you kind readers agree with me? Think about it and let me know what your thoughts are on this one if you would like to.

I talked to Autumn a short while ago, she simply loved the idea! Also she was so loving hearing about those young girl twinnies. So Autumn is joining me for a time tomorrow for a walk in the park near her house. I am so looking forward to it! The park by her house is a bit bigger than the one near me, think of the possibilities. 🙂 We will let  everyone know how our inner child twinnies do and if you don’t hear from us…Well, we promise we will be back as soon as we can reel in those inner child twinnies! Everyone join us, it’s time to let those inner children loose, Yay! 😉 🙂

Flashback to a Broken Toe, Oh No!


I sometimes run around my house with bare feet, not always the smartest choice. For me anyway it would seem, yet I continue doing it. Maybe it’s fine for other people who don’t run into things randomly with their poor toes. Maybe you watch what you are doing, where you are going better than me? Maybe I am just sometimes in too much of a rush? Maybe other people are more mindful of these things… Well, In that case, you are safe! Today I just had a flashback to my broken toe of 3 years ago. What a really horrible thing that broken toe was, don’t let anyone tell you it doesn’t hurt either! They are clearly lying to make themselves sound brave is all I have to say on the matter. Anyway, the toe incident today was thankfully a bruised one and not a broken one, Yay! It sort of hurts of course, but I can deal with it!  After having that evil broken one, I know the difference now…I learned the hard way.

What a very strange post of it this is making, but I do feel so compelled to share. Well, don’t I always? I was innocently minding my own business, when the edge of a dresser got in the way of my big toe earlier today. 😉 Yeah, sure it did and who am I kidding? I was racing around and oops, slammed it a good one. It will be OK, but memories of that poor little baby toe that got broken came flooding back.

The smallest toe on my left foot it was, what pain and it hurt to walk normally for weeks. With any kind of shoes on and even bare feet…It was just awful. How did I break that one you may want to know? I should feel very stupid to tell that little story, but again I will share. It may save someone reading this from making my mistake. Farfetched as it may probably be, doubtfully this could only happen to me I have a feeling.

OK, I was moving a piece of exercise equipment that was kind of heavy and my hand slipped and I saw stars, seriously! Landing right on my poor little toe, just so and Owww! I am not prone to exaggeration, so believe me when I say…I wouldn’t wish a broken toe on anyone ever. Hopefully none of you kind readers has ever broken a toe, if you have please do share!

Three years ago at the ER and with x-rays it was declared quite the break. I got told, we’re so sorry but we really can’t do anything. Well, short of taping it, trying to give me pain meds and advising ice to reduce swelling and staying off the foot. Yeah, like that was going to happen! I tried, but it wasn’t 100% possible so instead… I hobbled, hopped around, looking like a strange sight. I must confess I am a bit stubborn and quite determined, so I will always get through. So today, it was just a scare and an awful flashback and from now on…I am being very careful with these toes of mine! Wonder if I should look into a pair of steel toed shoes to keep those toes safe? 😉

I know I have shouldn’t complain about a broken toe, even this bruised one. People have had a lot of worse broken bones I know, so do forgive my complaining. The only other break I ever had in my life was a little finger on my right hand. Not pleasant, but I was a teenager and the memory doesn’t seem too bad. Well, there you have a rather strange sharing on this post today!

Wonder if any of you kind readers are wanting to know if Autumn ever broke a toe or other bone? No, the Twinnie did not I am happy to report! Although between us both we sure have had enough other very unusual and some very bad mishaps and injuries. I will save that for another blog perhaps? Or I will spare you all, or perhaps not! 😉 🙂

Are we ever too Old?


In going with my title…I know it’s a kind of strange title perhaps but hang with me please! 🙂 The question is… Are we ever to old for having stuffed animals, riding a merry go round, eating animal cookies that come packaged in those cute little boxes that kids enjoy, licking the favorite flavored lollipop, dancing in the rain, skipping along on a sunshiny day, twirling around until you get kind of dizzy? This thought hit me when I was looking at the stuffed giraffe I have, I started wondering if I was too old to have stuffed animals.
I only have about a half-dozen or so now, I have given some of them to nieces, nephews or friends’ kids. Am I too old for still owning stuffed animals? I say NO… they are fun and really very cute…Sentimental value in every single one of them! 🙂 Too old for the merry-go-round ride or any of the rest? Again, I would have to say NO NEVER! But then of course I will always be young at heart, something nobody can  ever take away from me. Am I immature? No, not in the slightest, I have been through far too many sad and grownup things nobody wants to face.
Riding a merry go round…Am I ever looking forward to the spring and the carnival time, it’s time for a ride! 😉 Eating animal cookies, enjoying a favorite lollipop…Both of them perfectly acceptable to kids and some of us that are kids at heart. Dancing in the rain, well if it’s warm enough weather…What if somebody’s watching? Oh well, guess they will be watching and perhaps maybe wondering. Never stopped me before, would it stop you? Any of these things the stuffed animals, all of it…Who of you kind readers has a thought to share?
What does Autumn have to say about all these questions? This sharing what the Twinnie thinks is always good, isn’t it? Does she agree with me…The answer is of course! Because we are twins is she agreeing? Of course not, thankfully she shares the love of all these fun things! 🙂 We twinnies do share the living like a kid at heart thing. Are we crazy, or are we normal…Oops, no such thing as normal! 😉 I will rephrase that as are we behaving like undignified people? If we are, may it never change! 🙂
Who has any thoughts they would like to share…Are we ever too old for some things? For everybody’s sake, I sure do hope not. If so, you could be missing out on so much fun and so many good times! I will be waiting to see what you kind readers think, so will the Twinnie. We are now heading off…We have to go pick out some lollipops and the sun is out also,  so we will be skipping on the way! 😉 🙂

March 3rd is a Holiday!


It’s a good one, too and I just need to share the news! It’s “I Want You to be Happy Day”,  now that is exciting news isn’t it? Of course it’s not marked on the calendar as a real holiday, although I think it should be!  Just imagine a whole day devoted to wanting others to be happy! 🙂 I am so loving this day already and will be making sure I participate, too. Autumn says she is sure on board about celebrating this day also.

Who doesn’t want to say to everyone they know and love, “I Want You to be Happy”? Or you don’t even have to say it, just make sure everyone you run into or speak with is happy! That’s a nice thought, say it with good vibes if you don’t want to use those exact words. Maybe you are kind of shy and don’t want to blurt it right out. That’s OK, too but just be extra nice and thoughtful instead.It sure couldn’t hurt anything, right? I hope none of you are thinking to yourselves, what a ridiculous holiday…None of you kind readers would think such a thing would you?

Well, if sadly you don’t embrace “I Want You to be Happy Day”, do share your thoughts please. Both of us Twinnies are praying such a thing doesn’t happen, but we are prepared because it really could happen. What if you run into somebody you just plain don’t like? Well, it may just occur…You don’t have to wish them a “I want you to be happy day”. Maybe you could just give them a little smile. It’s worth a try I say, but again I am an optimist…So I will be fully participating! I can’t help myself, either can Autumn…We talked about this day in advance of me writing this post. Let me tell you the Twinnie was just as excited as I was with this news, we are positive it’s a day that will make a difference! 🙂 What do you say kind readers, anybody with us?

Who will be embracing I Want You to be Happy Day? Please do feel free to tell us all about it, we are behind you all the way! I am ending this post now because I am off to wish everyone I encounter an I Want You to be Happy! We Twinnies sure do wish all of you kind readers a very big I Want You to be Happy on this special holiday today…We are saying it with a smile and also a hug! 🙂 🙂

Tell a FairyTale Day is Here!


Yay! It’s finally here, I was so excited to find this day and it’s here at last! 🙂 What a wonderful and fun day, not marked on the calendar of course. I think it most certainly should be though, who is with me? Tell a Fairytale Day is one we all can have some joy in telling fairy tales to the young ones in our circle. It’s a day that should be celebrated with a smile I do think. It brings up so many questions, too.

Only a few questions kind readers, I will try to control myself. 😉  What is your favorite fairytale of all time? What heroine or hero is your all time fave? What fairytale could you hear numerous times and never get tired of? Anyone of you kind readers wish to share? Which one is your least favorite? I know I hope it isn’t true…But do any of you kind readers have one? It is far-fetched but it could happen…Perhaps a bad vibe childhood memory of a certain fairytale? I tried to think of any, but I truly do just love them all and so does Autumn.

You know how that Twinnie is with magic and fairytales…She would speak right up if she had a least  fave. I will share with you all us Twinnies favorites and then you kind readers maybe would like to share yours? I hope so, sharing is so much fun I say and I am always for it! 🙂

I know my total favorite fairytale is Cinderella, because of the glass slipper, the prince and the lovely song. I know there are others I just totally love, but Cinderella tops my list.

As for Autumn, her favorite is Cinderella and she loves Beauty and the Beast, too. That is a nice song, too but of course we have to go on more than songs, don’t we?  We both love it, also Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and too many others to name! I am just overjoyed it really is Tell a Fairytale Day, it just makes me smile and the Twinnie is also smiling! 🙂 🙂 <–See, twin smiles!

Now, it’s your turn kind readers! 🙂 Who wants to share their favorites? It’s OK to  even tell a not so favorite, honest. Sharing really is a lot of fun, too I  say! As always…Inquiring Twinnies would love to hear your opinions and thoughts! 🙂 🙂
