Soon enough, the memories will be gone too.



A lot of things are better now than when I was young and some things are much better. But we lost many wonderful things along the way, apparently forever. Full-time, stay-at-home mothers, safe streets, and CCA boats are only a few.

Grumpy much?

Dear Santa...

I have one of those stuffy old boats and there are many times I have asked Santa for a nice 60 foot whatever-condo-cat.

Not deprecating the value of my stuffy old boat but most days I want something faster, more maneuverable, and more comfortable.
