Well, my mother would have been 79 today had she lived.

What a funny sentence.

Had she lived.

She did live.

And we loved her.

We still talk about her amongst ourselves. Things she would’ve done, or said, or thought, or liked, or given or not taken. Like given somebody “on...

This is not a time to stand alone. Women are reaching out to me and I want to share some of what I am hearing.

We moved 9 times in 5 years. So, one of the gifts of staying put for the last 12 years is we’ve had the same postman.

Here are 3 cool things about our neighborhood postman:

Show up at the right time and you will find many of these pointer brooms in use at  Bourda Market.

Over the years, I have noticed there’s a way to use this type of broom. Action from the wrist...
