My husband of 44 years died after a long, brave struggle with a malignant brain tumor. Now I am going it alone, as are many singles, divorcees, widows and widowers. I hope that my adventures will be something many can relate to, I hope they are funny and bring readers a good chuckle. That is my goal.

Forever young…..not.

The novel coronavirus with associated pandemic had, and continues to have, disastrous effects all around the world. Lives have been lost, many small businesses have failed, proms and graduations have been cancelled, weddings postponed. Schools are hopelessly tangled with online and/or in person classes, parents pulling out their hair in chunks (parents’ hair, not children’s).Continue reading “Forever young…..not.”
