The letter J brings to mind two wonderful events; my wedding in 1975 and  the birth of my daughter in 1979, both of which occurred in the glorious month of June......... 

The Word Rust reminds me of the color orange. And, pumpkin fits right into that category .....  

For a festive drink, a White Russian is very Smooth . I now make it with coconut milk since I do not eat dairy .....

Imagination brings to mind my cat Lilly. I can imagine myself being her and having a life of luxury ....
