NOW!

NOW!  When someone says something about 1980 or 1990 I have to pause a moment to calculate how many years ago that actually was…and ..truth be told…it seems like yesterday!” Lately people have been showing up, just popping back in my life as if they had always been here…like 1972 (one of my bride’s maids …
