... the tales of two sisters

Dana lives in Seattle, and Tracie lives in Germany. We are businesswomen, writers and humorists. We write about life, dating, and today's modern women.


As we prepare for Thanksgiving this week, The Menopausebarbees are grateful that during the past five plus years, you have allowed us  as the Delaney sister’s Broadway play coined, “Have Our Say.”

We are grateful that we can agree to disagree on platforms from politics to lunatics.  We are grateful we can share our pain and gain, fortune and misfortune, but most of all connect with friends and family on both sides of the pond from Germany to Seattle and everywhere in between.  We are grateful that Daddy and Mama instilled in us the work ethic to never give in or give out!  Daily we were reminded to get up and get on it! We are grateful for the gray area, that shade you reside in when issues are neither black nor white; but you come to accept.  We are grateful that God gave us a voice and the ability to express ourselves. Read Incompatible with Nature a Mother’s Story, available on Amazon – a perfect Christmas gift!

We are grateful that although the road is often under construction, we have always found the detour and arrived on time!  We are grateful for the gifts we have been blessed to give when no one  knows.  We are grateful for the acts of service using our time and talents to lighten another’s load.   We are grateful for making the right decisions, even when they are difficult.

So today, and tomorrow as you break bread with your family and loved ones, as Snoop Dogg said at yesterday’s Hollywood Star on the hall of fame- be thankful for yourself!  YOU are indeed God’s special creation, one that the world has never seen the likes before and will never again.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
