What a week!  I am working fervently launching businesses which when mature, will enable me to focus on my books.  I would like to introduce you to some of the exciting happening in our household. 

The first and most fun by far, is Kegan’s blog début. My eldest son Kegan, now 16 years old, has shown an interest in writing.  He excelled at poetry in his middle school years, then struggled his first year of high school, but has returned to try his hand again in this creative endeavor.  Seeing life through the eyes of my teenager is an entertaining and wondrous experience.  So without further ado, here is Kegan Johnson.


I love chips. The salty, crunchy sensation from this delicacy known as chips is the corner stone of pleasure in my life. Mom doesn’t want me eating them. She is crazy not letting me have these chips. Two weeks I have to live without chips and I have no idea how I can last this long. My mind tells me to resist but my mouth will do anything to get a hold of the good stuff; I do not know how much longer I can resist the best sensation in my life. I remembered when I bought my first bag of chips; it was my favorite flavor, Hint of Lime Tortilla Chips. When I ate them, I thought I was in heaven; just thinking about them rekindles my cravings for them. Temptation kick in, my mouth begins to water. I close in on the idea of sneaking one, just one, bag of chips a week. Just to hold me over. I feel myself slowing losing control. It won’t be long before I go totally mad.

Post a comment and let his know what you think.  Have a great week! 

p.s. Thank you for your name suggestions.  I’ll let you know soon the name of our new bakery!

Good job Kegan,
I too love my chip fix. Homemade salsa and organic chips are my favorite treat. I'd let you sneak a bag, shh! hehe!

Kegan, I have been asking your mom for weeks now, 'when is Kegan going to blog?' I am so happy to see you here. Your post is most humorous, but it strikes home on so many levels. We all have our dark food longings.

I truly believe that everyone has a secret chip fetish. I like tortilla chips too. If you every want a simple but tasty nacho, try South of the Border tortilla chips (or your fave) with a dab of jalapeno jelly and mild cheddar cheese. Don't tell your mother I'm encouraging you.

I think it would be great if you tagged along with your mom sometime when she comes to writing group.

Good job! I hope to see more of your posts.
