Adventures Life changers Fun
Ride with her into the Wild West of long ago
Thoroughly enjoyed this book! I love history and to read it in the first person and in the words of a woman who had "grit" and enjoyed life and adventure was very entertaining.
I liked the humor…Indians and whorehouses and the characters were developed to make the story fun. Also loved the old pictures. A fun story and fast read.
RAISED IN A WHOREHOUSE
Mary didn’t want that kind of life. Jumped on a wagon train when she was but 15. Ride with her into the Wild West of long ago. She promises not to lie too bad. I found her handwritten story in an old trunk I bought at an auction in Walton, NY.
Not for the sensitive and the refined
A SWEET LITTLE ORPHAN GIRL
An over-sexed, super-smart, foul-mouthed brat
I got rid of prissy morality long ago. If you're a super-nice, little snowflake, go suck a lollypop. If you still have a little spirit left, come along and have fun playing around with taboos, authoritarian bastards, and the wild Shadow World of ancient Egypt.
When I was four my mother drove away, leaving me on the sidewalk sobbing and screaming for her to come back. My father died before I was born. Not very nice of him but he left me a pile of money and a cute little cottage on Big Sur. Better than nothing.
Children’s Garden may be her last chance
Jacqueline Kelley, MS MA
Written very well. I like that it was told by both the social worker and the child.
Absolutely loved this story. Great to see some good in this world come from the foster care system. Good can come from trauma.
FRIED THE GOLDFISH
Yes, there really and truly was a wonderful place called Children’s Garden, in Marin County, California. A special place where broken children were mended.
This is the story of Nutmeg. Taken from her schizophrenic mother when very young. She has failed many foster homes. She tried her best to fail Children’s Garden as well. Soon after she arrived, she fried a goldfish on the radiator.
ADVENTURES FOR YOUR MIND

And carefully read How to guarantee a wonderful life. Yes! Yes! Only 5 simple rules.
LET OUT YOUR WILD AND CRAZY KID
Remember the joyful moments of your childhood.
The moments of fun and adventure.
Sure you’re all grown up. Done a good job of it and proved it by having the good sense to be reading this. And you can have a good life playing Adult---thinking, feeling and acting correctly as a good Adult should.
But don’t overdo it. You lose more and more of the magic of your childhood. Your freedom, joy and creativity.
Margaret Mead found a way around that horror.
I was wise enough to never grow up
while fooling most people into believing I had.
Do you flash spirit and vitality?
Are you content being a tiger in a cage, warm and safe? No problem. Enjoy. But if you want a taste of the wild, this is your chance.
The more alive and creative flow so much more freely within themselves and out into the world. You see and hear and feel the difference when they walk into a room or onto the stage. They flash spirit and vitality.
Come along. Take a chance.
Not to worry.
You can always go back being a nice little tiger in a cage.
COME TO THE DARKSIDE---we have cookies
A huge book of quotations, gathered over a lifetime. Easily harvest the wisdom and knowledge that others have labored hard for. I’ve added a few funny fillers to give your brain a rest.
If your judgment, taste, sense of humor, and belief systems are similar to mine you will love the quotations. If not, explore them anyway. Expand what you can think, feel, and become.
COMPLEMENTARY OR INCOMPATIBLE
Is your mind open or closed?
Are you a scientific or religious fundamentalist? Quite sure that science and religion are incompatible? No problem. Much good work has been done over the ages by people committed to one or the other world view. The certainty that you are right concentrates mind and energy.
Others believe that science and religion are complementary. They have also done much good work over the centuries. Which is it?
Come along and explore the strengths and weaknesses of science and religion---the two major ways humans have explored Reality. And be sure and explore if your mind is open or closed.
CUT THE CRAP
Advertisers and politicians throw tons of crap at you day and night. Throw the crap right back in their faces. Hard! Have a little fun.
In addition to turning you into a great crap shooter, Skinner and Pavlov also increase joy, creativity and adventure in your life. You don’t just read about their concepts and strategies. They come alive in your life as you experience them.
When you need a break from the data and logic reality created by Skinner and Pavlov, go on a few weird adventures and wild fantasy trips with me. They are as far from the world of Skinner and Pavlov as I could get. If you are a material fundamentalist, probably best pass on by. The adventures and trips would jiggle your brain.
MAY YOU HAVE A LIFE OF LOVE AND JOY
