Thanksgiving Travels

This year I am flying to Florida to spend Thanksgiving with my daughter and son-in-love, Joey. Joey is a gourmet cook so I am looking forward to a great dinner! This time I am traveling with my puppy, Maya, who is almost 10 months old. I have never had a small dog to...
Watching TV or Not

Watching TV or Not

I have a communications system that gives me 140+ channels. Wonderful! I watch two of them! There are so many other things to do. I have two neighbors who don’t even have a TV set. As to mine, it is there so in the evenings, I watch TV. Some nights I feel like I am...
Halloween Surprise

Halloween Surprise

Four years ago, my neighbors across the street decided to go all out for Halloween with strobe lights, a giant spider, someone rising out of a coffin, etc. The kids loved it and texted all their friends. At 8:30 my neighbors shut down. They had run out of candy and...
Passwords

Passwords

The Mail

The Mail

Like most of the people I know, my mailbox is full of mail every day. Yay. I sit down and find the items to be tossed exceed the items to keep! Political, charitable organizations, all good causes perhaps, but I think someone passed the word that my last name was...
Pay It Forward

Pay It Forward

I have a sign in my office that says, “Good morning, this is God. I will be handling all your problems today. I will not need your help, so have a good day.” Many times, I wake up in the night and scenes from past disappointments and decisions run through my mind. I...
Reunion Plans

Reunion Plans

Okay, our 2020 Christmas reunion is coming up and everyone had suggestions as to where we should go this time. A cruise, the Florida Cays, Midwest, Baja, etc. Everyone had an opinion, but objected that some ideas were too far, too costly, etc. Then we received news...
Family Reunions

Family Reunions

A friend of mine, visiting from out of state, came for a family reunion. Her husband died many years ago and this was his family. They had urged her to come and said they looked forward to seeing her. The actual event was not what she expected. After the initial...
