Flamingo’s Fixin’ to Fly!

Flamingo is a chameleon! I first got her in Miami at the “Pink Palm” gift shop. She was a shining beauty, but not cheap. I promised myself I would buy her as a reward after my next real estate sale when I worked for Majestic Properties in South Beach. All the closings […]

Leavin’ on a Jet Plane… Maybe! 3

I was packed and ready to fly. I had spent days preparing for the airline reunion in Atlanta – a gathering of “Stewardesses of the 1960’s and 70’s.” Yes, there is such a group! In fact we have over 7,000 members! Nancy Duke, the organizer of this “first annual,” had […]


We Did it On the Road! 6

Is the Child Still Wild Without the Feathers? 20

This is my signature wine glass. It was given to me by my generous and thoughtful friend, Lynn. I had admired her collection of bling wine glasses including the stunning “Mermaid” glass. We both loved that one so much we’ve been known to get into a tug-of-war over who gets it. […]


Do Not Tell Me It Can’t Be Done! 18

I share this sentiment with FDR … In the movie, Pearl Harbor, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt defies the impossible by rising from his wheelchair on polio shriveled legs and holds himself up to make a point to his advisers who seem to have lost faith in the United States succeeding […]

Heard it on the Radio! 14

As I was puttering about my kitchen this morning, a soothing voice on the radio grabbed my attention. I put the teapot down, turned up the volume, and was transported to my college dorm room in Cortland, New York, 1964. A poster on the wall was placed at the foot […]
