The Stories Of Friends

I had dinner last night with an old friend. I just snickered out loud as I wrote that - Linda is older than me, and I love to tease her about it. She’s only got twelve years years on me, but I play it up as much as I can. Years ago, when I was showing off the ultrasound pictures of my first child, Linda was bemoaning the fact that ultrasounds weren’t standard procedure when she had her girls. I reminded her that back then, doctors probably couldn’t generate ultrasound waves by banging the rocks together in her cave. I know, I’m a good friend like that....more

WHERE CAN I COLLECT MY "GET OUT OF CANCER FREE" CARD?

JEEZ.... I had every intention of doing some sappy Happy Valentine's Day post.  Instead, I'll follow the Al Capone version of Valentine's Day.  It's time for a breast cancer massacre.  If you recognize yourself in any of this, consider this a fair warning.  Next time, no warning will be issued.  I will simply let the dogs out to hunt you down.........more
