Memphis – How a King lived and died

I recently visited Memphis, TN, my son had a cross country meet there, and I figured as long as I was going I might as well see some sights. Before I left, I got some local information from my high school friend Cindy who had lived there recently before returning back...

Las Vegas and Beyond – Mother and Son Trip

So typically when planning our trip I want it to be to someplace where we can see a natural wonder, our last trip was to Toronto, and we got close-up and personal to Niagara Falls. This time it was to the Grand Canyon. This was my first trip to “sin city”,...

Older and Wiser

My birthday has come and gone, and I consider myself blessed to have lived to see it. I will continue my journey on becoming better and wiser for as long as the Lord allows. I have learned in my years here on earth: to give thanks to my creator, it’s better to...

Your Word is Your Bond

Do people still live by this credo, I don’t think so. No one is perfect, but if you tell someone you are going to do something, you should do it, or at least let them know why you won’t be able to do it. I know sometimes, life can get hectic and it feels...

Skating – Part 2

So the Jive Biscuit Family Reunion was off the chain, women were scantily clad, guys – well they were just being themselves, there were a few of them that took it back to the 70′s namely the gentlemen in the high-waisted white pants – you know who...

Skating – Part I

Nothing in Particular

So I’m having writer’s block already, and I haven’t even finished out a full week of blogging. Anyway, today I was on a never ending call with someone who obviously can hold a conversation by herself, because I didn’t have to speak at all and...

Bday Celebration and Skating

So last night, I went to Benihana’s to celebrate my nephews birthday. My sweetie, El ordered sushi, and I should have taken his lead because we needed to leave early, but instead I order shrimp and chicken. Wow, that was a mistake…honestly, why do you cook...

Happy Born Day Tony!!!

Today is my nephew Tony’s birthday. He’s somewhere in his thirties, which makes me older, boy how time flies. What can I say about my nephew – he’s kind, honest, and he’s a good friend. It’s always comforting to know that I can call...

Valentine’s Day – Part 2

For For Valentine’s Day I went out to eat at Big Chow Grill. Although I had heard about the restaurant, I had yet to experience it. Well, let me just tell you, it was not at all what I expected. We decided to sit at the bar because we had somewhere else to go,...
