Christmas Season in New York City

I have a couple of stories to share this evening. The first is about how much Christmas has changed. I took my granddaughters to the American Girl Store for lunch and a little shopping spree for their dolls.

A New York City Story

Last post was a Thanksgiving Story…..this post, I have a New York City story to share:
Yesterday morning, I was awakened by a beeping noise…this was a 5:10 a.m. and I asked myself, ‘What could be happening?’ Was it the alarm I just installed for carbon monixide? Did someone get into the apartment building and was [...]

A Thanksgiving Story

Today is Thanksgiving. Last Thanksgiving was a painful one for me — the first Thanksgiving without having my mother around to ‘whip’ the potatoes.

Full Circle

This past weekend, I made a long trip from Telluride, Colorado, to New York City. I was invited to attend a baby shower for the daughter of a long-time friend. Most people would not travel so far for a baby shower — it would be easier just to send a gift — but for some [...]

Wearing Glasses

I was blessed with really good eyes….in fact, I remember asking during an eye exam, “What is 20/15?” as I had always heard about 20/20 vision as the ‘optimum.’ The eye doctor looked at me and replied, “That’s better than 20/20!”
My father was a B-17 pilot during the war and flew without glasses. He only [...]
