My friend Robert asked that I write more so that he could keep up with me and know what I’m doing. With that in mind, here you go, Robert: This weekend, I am attending a Tai Chi workshop with our Grandmaster, Ma Foren. He has been studying martial arts for approximately 60 years. I had never met a Grandmaster before and had no idea what to expect. Students who have attended his annual workshop previously, all said that it was…

Tuesday night is our Boot Camp night where we learn about healthy habits for eating and for weight loss. Before we started class, three of us got called out of the class. Anna, Adam, and me. We had no idea what for. I immediately thought: Hmmmm, were we ever together getting into mischief? As it turned out, it was a good thing.

I really do enjoy these early morning walks with him while the sun is coming up. It’s so peaceful, quiet, and I get to see lots of sights in the morning that don’t seem to be available later on. I can almost count on seeing bluebirds sitting on mailboxes and on the…

Yesterday, June 5th was Tony’s high school graduation. Next week is his 18th birthday. ‘C’ is for cookie, that’s good enough for me. ‘C’ is for cookie, that’s good enough for me. ‘C’ is for cookie, that’s good enough for me. Oh! Cookie! Cookie! Cookie!
