I’m proud to say “I graduated from Carter Riverside!”

My memory isn’t what it use to be.  Yet I have very vivid specific memories.  I remember my very first day of kindergarten at Riverside Elementary.  I recall sitting next to Delia Pulliam.  She had her pony tail on the side of her head, which I thought was very cool.  She was my very bestContinue reading “I’m proud to say “I graduated from Carter Riverside!””

“Get off the cross, someone else needs the wood!!”

Reconnecting with people and making new friends makes me happy.  I enjoy sitting down with someone and finding out about their life’s journey.  Where they’ve been, what they’ve done, what they’ve experienced.  I’m a happy person and I enjoy being around happy people.  Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not in a blissful state of mindContinue reading ““Get off the cross, someone else needs the wood!!””

Anna’s Misadventures in Sking

I passed a car on the freeway the other day that had three snowboards attached to the rear of the vehicle.  I thought, “How nice to be going on a winter vacation to the snow!”  Yes it always sounds like fun.  But it doesn’t always turn out that way. The first time I went skingContinue reading “Anna’s Misadventures in Sking”

A sister is a forever friend.

My sister and I are eleven months apart.  I was born in the last week of December in 1961 and she was born in the first week of December of 1962.  So while my mother was waiting on the arrival of her very fist baby during the Christmas of 1961, she never imagined that aContinue reading “A sister is a forever friend.”

What kind of friend are you??

I have found in life that there are givers and there are takers.  I think generally most people fall somewhere in the middle.  In the last 50 years of my life I have mostly taken people at face value.  I don’t look for ulterior motives or wonder “what do they want?”  But as 50 approachesContinue reading “What kind of friend are you??”

Are Friend Collectors Pathetic???

I’ve noticed that there are some people on social networking sites that seem to collect people.  There is simply no possible way that they could personally know that many people and have a relationship with them. I’m not talking about public figures, news anchors, musicians, writers or those sorts.  I’m talking about ordinary every dayContinue reading “Are Friend Collectors Pathetic???”
