Piece of Cake

I survived my first carpal tunnel surgery. For some reason I thought it would be so much worse than it was. The day before I was to call and find out what time my surgery was scheduled for. I was very disappointed to find out I was suppose to be there…

Getting My Act Together

For over twenty-four years I worked in the same place. My parents opened the garden center in 1982. I went to work there in ‘84. I met many people that have turned out to be life-long friends. We had lots of good times over the years. When I was pregnant…

The 70’s Collection: Saturday Morning Cartoons
