Today Steve is officially old! As young people, we both always thought of 60 as being incredibly old – at the very verge of death. Now that both of our odometers have rolled over, 60 doesn’t seem so very old any more!
Happy Birthday!… Continue reading
When I first met Steve, he had been sober for 10 years. Such had not always been the case. He was very active in AA and has been all of these years.
I just have never liked alcohol, and I actively hate drug use. I’m lucky these were never a part of my life. I will remove myself from the… Continue reading
Last week I read that their are 60 people in the world that have complete and total recall of everything that they experienced in their lives starting all the way back to just a few days after they were born.

I quickly found… Continue reading

I so wish Mozart had lived to be… Continue reading
Thanks, everyone, for the calls, voicemails, Facebook messages, emails, birthday cards and gifts wishing me a happy birthday! Who ever would have thought I would live to be this old?!!
The birthday celebration rituals began the day before my birthday with dinner at the restaurant, Paul K. As a starter, I highly recommend the seafood soup of the day––a delicious… Continue reading
Today is my sister’s birthday. All things considered, I wouldn’t want anyone else to have been my sister growing up, except for the time she hit me over the head with a baseball bat. She really didn’t hit me very hard. She really couldn’t. The bat was as big as she was. But I told her that she had given… Continue reading
