Two for the road

I’m all packed and just a few hours away from starting on out on our Mother’s Day weekend at Disney World.  My friend’s daughter and 4-year old son will probably be riding in the car with me. I say probably, because there are two critical and sacrosanct golden rules that must be followed for people to… Read more »

Halfway measures

Tomorrow I’m off on a four-day exploration of all things Disney World. Invited by good friends to join them, their daughter and their 4-year old grandson, I’ll be visiting the theme parks for the first time in at least 15 years (not counting a one-day jaunt taking my then-young niecelings to Animal Kingdom).

Now,… Read more »

The ties that no longer bind

Loyalty is big with me.  I’ve mentioned it many times in many blog posts over many years.  Loyalty to people, places and things. Same state for 50+ years.  Same barber for 40+ years.  Same toothpaste, same paper towels, same underwear (manufacturer, not pair).  And same car dealer for 20+ years. That ended this morning.
