Not again…and have to go to the dentist

A toothache…2 am…tried to psych myself that it was a product of my imagination…but the Imagination Department was a bit weak at that time of the morning.   Around 6:45 am, made coffee, got the newspaper from the frozen lawn and by 8:30 am had to call the dentist.  Brave ladies they are.  They were atContinue reading “Not again…and have to go to the dentist”

Coming back from the cold….Miami

Well, where should I start.  Had a meaningful visit with my mother and brother in South Florida, where had to wear a hat to go to bed (the draft coming through the windows was just incredible).  Celebrated her 85th birthday, where she entertained us with her singing old songs,  and in her own ways sheContinue reading “Coming back from the cold….Miami”

I’m off to see the wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz…

Clothes…do they help you or date you…

A few years ago I was visiting with my trendy daughter and she made this observation “mami, don’t start dressing like a little old lady.”  I told her that the outfit I was wearing made me feel comfortable.  She responded, “yes, comfortable, but they date you.”  Another enlightened moment of my life. Since then IContinue reading “Clothes…do they help you or date you…”
