A sore sight,

To everyone’s eyes, ears.

Banished from my sight!

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

  2. A jalopy is extremely loved by the owner in many instances. Others are entitled to their opinions!

      I agree, I did say my clunker though. And I am entitled to my opinion too. My car has become a target. Has been since I bought it. Within 2 months someone took sharp object to it and scratched the hell out of it. And that is just the beginning. Mine looks like a clunker but still drives thank God.
