ON THE BACK BURNER

Nov.11

My mother had beautiful skin. She never went out in the sun. The one time that she did, she got sun poisoning, and never went in the sun again. It just so happened that when she had this reaction , she was visiting us and we took her to Pensacola,  for a treat. Some treat. ! She always used copious amounts of Pond's cold cream. I was reminded of this when I went to the drug store to buy some cream for my very dry skin. I saw Pond's cold cream on the shelf. It's too late for me to have the beautiful complexion that my Mother had, but I bought a jar of the cream anyway. I am an optimist . When I got home, I read the label more carefully and saw that I picked up an anti aging cream made by Pond's. That's Ok  with me. If you see me and I looked 39, tell me to stop using the cream. Dayanu. Translation from the Hebrew, "that would have been enough".

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?
