ON THE BACK BURNER

May 12

I was participating in a fund raising event sponsored by Hadassah.It was a day of mah Jong. Our group of friends needed a fourth to complete our table. A single player,new to our area, joined us. Everything was fine until she dismissed  me and really insulted me by saying "you sit all day and write what you are doing"? I guess I never thought of my Blog like that. I really love Face Book and the fact that it opens up a community for me. Some people who read me, I know very well. Some people who read me, I know a little. Some people who read me, I don't know well, but would like to. It is true that I do think , during the day, about what I might bring up. I find it really heartening when people respond because the same thing happened to them, or , they are surprised (like I have never seen Good Morning America) or they give me a boost by just being my FB friend.  I guess this stranger at our table struck a cord in me when she dismissed me. I didn't then ,feel the need to validate myself to her. Only to me, now. So there. I don't think that your daughter being Ms Whatever is all that  great. What does she do all day.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
