He Made Me Laughing

         Not long after I started blogging at Allison’s Well, the little voice that has permanent residence at the back of my brain started to talk to me . . .       “Who do you think you are?  You are so arrogant, you’re so deceived!  You couldn’t find water if you were in the middle of the Atlantic…
