Tomorrow (in one minute from when this will post) I turn 59!  The last year in my 50’s.  I figured turning the same age as the year you were born was some kind of thing and so I looked it up!  It is called a Platinum year or a Bedian year (named after some NY […]

Weird!

When we were dating, our common friends would remark that we certainly belonged together since we are both weird.  Not sure if that word has new or negative connotations but at the time it certainly was accurate!  So much so, that 35 years later the child of one of our former students texted me to […]

My mind flooded with thoughts of a woman I never met. Today would have been Jim’s moms 91st birthday.  How do I know that?!  Why can’t I let some of those little dates go?  Her only brother will be buried next week and I wonder if I should go and take some sand from Barbados.  Anyway, […]
