Welcome to my website. It's a collect of my writing, ideas and ramblings.

My nickname is Slacker Jo because I LOVE to slack.

To me, slacking is doing fun stuff. Everyone has his or her own definition of fun stuff. My slacker philosophy is to be more efficient with stuff you don't like so you can spend more time doing stuff you do like.

That pretty much sums it up.

I wrote ANOTHER book!

More post war adventures from the gang!

“I love the summer,” said Mary as she and Doris lounged on the raft at the lake. “But I am looking forward to fall and cooler weather. Matt says it’s too hot to have sex. What man says such a thing?” Doris smiled and thought how two years ago she would have died of embarrassment or changed the subject.
“I always think of September as a new year instead of January. Back to school and all. I think I’m going to make my 1949 Resolutions in September instead of January.”
“How did you do with Resolutions for 1948?” asked Mary. She never made resolutions. If you want to change or do better, just go ahead and do it. Don’t wait to be hungover and full of regret on New Year’s day, quite possibly the worse day of the year to propose any personal changes.
“I did okay with cutting back on sweets and visiting the shut ins. But not so good with less swearing.”
“You hardly swear.”
“Well compared to you and Matt I am practically the Pope, but inappropriate words are creeping into my vocabulary. With too much frequency. Too much damn frequency!”

I wrote a book!

People have said over and over again that I should write a book, so I did! Muriel Chesterton is a minor character in the book so I made her the author.


Jo Doodles!

I am in LOVE with Pie Charts!
