Judy Jetson vs Caroline

I sit on my deck on this beautiful September afternoon. Here I am, working from home on my laptop, my iPad and my cell phone with unlimited international call minutes. Oh, and did I mention my espresso machine. The ability to work from my deck here in the middle of a hardwood forrest with all the perks of a modern espace cubicle without the commute time or the enviornmental pollution, sometimes seems...

Sixteen Candles

Our granddaughter, Isabella was just here for her summer visit. This year we celebrate her sixteenth birthday so her grandfather and I were very excited that she could legally drive us around. In recent years there were some country roads that her Popa taught her the rules of the road on the QT, but this summer we’re legal. Within minutes of her arrival, she reminded me, once again, there are no...

Saying Goodbye

Yesterday I attended the funeral of an old friend. The two of us were pioneers in the revitalization of our city’s downtown. We were the first to open locally owned restaurants/bars on the old Historic Riverfront . Tony ran an Irish Pub that could go head to head with any Irish Pub this side of the Pond and I ran an oyster bar. We were next door neighbors and were there to help one another out when...

There have been many things in my life that I have committed to. Parenting is the only one that...

I use the term lovingly as I really do think it is important to have a place, a really safe place, to talk about the things in life that cause us to go to the darkside. My head and heart...

Weddings, Funerals and Birthdays

This past month has been one I won’t soon forget, even though I did forget to post my blogs. The usual daily task can be easily paled by the not so usual, namely weddings, funerals and birthdays. The wedding of my beautiful cousins, the funeral of my sweet dear friend and the birthdays of my child, my grandchild and mine have kept me in a constant state of joy or sadness. I did love the wedding, it...

Here Comes the Bride

Today is the wedding day of my nephew Sam and his bride Victoria. Everyone is so excited for this young couple. They have planned and prepped and stressed and done all the things that go into planning such a big day. They also are planning a two week honeymoon to Italy. Victoria has been one busy girl, but she is a smart and savvy woman who realizes that all this pre-wedding stress can take a toll on a...
