My first boyfriend, John, died this week. It makes me sad that I never told him how important he had been to me. In fact, he died, not even knowing that he had ever been my boyfriend.

Waitressing is not easy, but this was an incredible experience

Maybe we have been eating out too much because we have begun to notice little differences in restaurant service and food. Granted, we don’t always go to the most up-scale places, but for people who eat out of a lunch bucket for half the year, we are not particularly fussy either. If, when ou…

Treasure your many Valentines this Valentine’s Day

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, a day to celebrate love. The older I get, the more things there are to love. While youth is glorified and first love is sung about, I like this stage of life the best. Love is layered and has been tested. I have children and grandchildren and siblings and a mothe…

Double root canal was just another day at the beach

A week ago, I bit down on something and thought I must have hit a rock since pain shot up into my cheek. It was a soft noodle, however, and I’d just had my first indication that something was wrong with my teeth.

How much should be expected of photo editing software?

A spontaneous decision to take professional family pictures probably isn’t really such a good idea. I like receiving pictures where the families are color coordinated, look physically fit and healthy, and they’ve had haircuts and manicures in order to be captured at their best in years to co…

I refilled some prescriptions today. The kinds of medication that are meant to avoid catastrophes down the road. When I picked them up, the pharmacist handed me a stack of papers to read regarding the dangers of the medication. While I am a relatively healthy person, I became sick with fear …
