Signs of Aging
Okay, so I had a birthday last week. I told my friends I was 48 going on 15...maturity-wise. It was a great birthday, though. I was biking around Indiana, with 21 friends, seeing as many covered bridges as we could in a week. On the evening ... Read more

Nothing is more fun to me than a day on my bike. Especially when it's a day of just riding around town, exploring and making up a route as I go. That's what I did yesterday and, of course, had a blast.

On the way home from my ride on Sunday, I got a call from my nephew's wife. "Help! Our nanny quit at the last minute." They can get the baby into her corporate day care in May, but needed help until then. Well, I can't do the whole time, but... Read more
Okay, I've been attending this pity party this week. The food has been great, but there are no cool kids here! The only way to get out is opening the door and walking out. That's what I'm going to do. It just seems like a long walk home!

It's been rough lately. Don't know if it's a case of SADD (Yes, I think southerners get that, too) or if it's just all the junk in life piling up. I do know that I have to leave it behind and move forward.
I think everyone goes through ti... Read more
