ON THE BACK BURNER

oct. 15

I wish that I could say that all of my kids were in the same time zone. We are getting closer. At least for a short time, they are all in the US. For the next few weeks, I will have half of them here in Florida, so that leaves mountain time, what ever that is , and the west coast. When did it change from having your kids live near by to having them live in 3 states and another continent. My Grandmother, after arriving in this country and my Mother , after arriving in this country,and my sister , all lived in the same town. How did Bob entice me to leave and make the mid west my home. Funny thing is that I still say I am from New Orleans. I should clarify that by saying I raised our family in the mid west. But I don't because coming from New Orleans gets more of a reaction than saying ,  I lived in Evanston. When I say that, I usually have to say, that is where Northwestern is.  Then people get it. Chicago ! Cubs. ! Windy City. My Daddy said that I shouldn't move to Chicago. There were gangsters there. I never told him that I knew a few. O
