A warm blanket
Did you have a good Thanksgiving? Your pics sure seemed like it, ha. I’m with you 100%! We had the traditional dinner with all the trimmings, our home was full of precious little grands running all over the place and all went well.

It’s just a number….
Well, it happened. I’m 64…..I just can’t believe it. I’m honestly having a hard time believing it. I was ALWAYS the baby of the family. I was the youngest! I loved that title.

Since I’m too lazy to go through the insurance papers to be exact, I tried to estimate and do the math myself (quit laughing). Anyhoo…. it seems to me to be aroundContinue reading “Stayin’ Alive”
And so it goes..
Last night I chose to watch a favorite tv drama… “This is Us”…. or as Jack likes to call it, “This is Sad”. Since I am a sorry, pitiful fan I had no faith that the Memphis Grizzlies were going to win the playoff game and had gone upstairs choosing the tv show instead. BigContinue reading “And so it goes..”

When I graduated from William Woods in 1981 the ceremony was solemn, beautiful and meaningful.
