Tuesday is the day we transport Mollie and her belongings to the other side of the state, and these are the last days of having her live with us in the way she has since she was born more than 18 years ago. Each time one of our kids trundled off to college, I felt […]

So as my readers who are on facebook already know, the bunnies died.

The models looked ravishing. once again, we held it at The Herberman Conference Center at Shadyside Hospital, which is a perfect venue. The biggest difference this year was that three […]

Got to see Jenna, Max and Shannon last night, saw Jenna’s student art exhibit at her school, St. David’s. Keith, a housekeeping person at St.David’s […]

Griping about things does not mean I am not aware of my good fortune. In my case, I think everything good that has happened to me harkens back to being born into my particular family. If i had not had my parents and growing up environment, I doubt things would have turned out so well. […]

Yeah, we just got back this afternoon. Not quite as smooth a trip as Mollie had hoped on account of the last minute ankle sprain on Saturday — running across street, the typical inversion injury, the tearful phone call, the mad rush – decided to change from pjs since we wd prob have to go […]

After much phone tag, I finally reached Aunt Evelyn today. She is my Mom’s youngest sister. It must be very weird to be the only remaining sibling. My Dad was the youngest of three siblings, and they died in order of age, and that is what happened with Mom’s siblings, too. So Evelyn is the […]
