Gosh, I have so enjoyed Patricia’s past articles, haven’t you? That said, her new “5 Reasons Winters Are Like Baby Boomers” will be just as much fun to read. It’s been a total pleasure and honor to be one of several guest writers here on Susan’s blog. I’m both grateful for being asked to be here, and for the posts of the others, which filled my cup of blog reading to a degree beyond my expectations.
Don’t you love ghost stories? It’s October and Fall is officially here, as we begin to settle in and prepare for shorter days and colder nights. Soon, the trick-or-treaters will be donning scary costumes, carting around paper bags or pillow cases and scouring the neighborhoods, while looking for their bounty.
Here’s a little story I wrote Pat Ruppel, in reflection, as the sweet days of summer wound down and cooler nights were soon to come. “It had been a rough year having come through the loss of my mother-in-law, not to mention an outsourced job along with catastrophic statewide news. I guess you could say my heart wanted to feel happy and safe. What better way than to recapture some childhood moments.”
