May 13, 2019

Set in Flathead County, Montana, Don’t Mess with Mrs. Sedgwick rings true about aging in the State of Montana, especially as to the weather. Likewise, the subtitle of the book is truly telling, as it dubs the novel a caper. What is more capricious than life itself as we launch into our 70-somethings? I believe I am VERY qualified to review this lively novel as a Montanan having just turned 70 in January. I am grateful that I am not yet a widow, but I can and do appreciate the rich relationships that the protagonist and her three friends maintain with their deceased spouses. Better yet is the tight bond Roberta enjoys with Lucy, the accusatory cocker spaniel. Marie F. Martin swirls us through her fancy footwork pace that is somewhere at the intersection of old time rock and roll, disco and folk rock culture. Even if you are not ‘of a certain age’ you may well hope to get there. If so, put Don’t Mess with Mrs. Sedgwick on your dance card. It’s a Montana Two-Step you won’t want to miss.

Golfing Season is Back!

A few year ago, I brought back four shot-size bottles of fountain of youth water from Florida. My brother and his wife took me on the adventure to see it. Well, Carol and I didn’t look a bit younger so I thought for sure it’d work on my golfing buddies. Here are the pictures taken on the first tee box by our faithful and patient starter, Tony.

Before the magic water. So sad and not young.

But after the gulp, this magic happened.

We have fun. Glad the season has started.

A day of surprises.

I had three surprises today. First one was the lilies on the plant my son-in-law Mike gave me for Easter opened more of their blossoms wider. So pretty.


Next surprise was a trinket found by my writing friend Angie at an antique market. She knows I have a 1940 Indian Motorcycle in my new novel that she is critiquing.

And last but not least. The new audio version of Don’t Mess With Mrs. Sedgewick was released. Here is the link to it if you want to check it out.

This was a completely fun day.

Birthday Bicycle

My great-grand son, Gunnar, shares the same birthday date as I do, so we get together each year to celebrate.   A few days before our date, his dad called to ask if he could store a bicycle he purchased for Gunnar in my garage.  I asked him to also buy a helmet and that would be my gift.

On our appointed day, winter’s snow still piled deep in my yard. It was freezing cold, as the kids hurried from their car with cake and ice cream for celebrating. Gunnar eyed the wrapped package on my table and I told him to go ahead and open it.

“It’s a Bike helmet,” he yelled, then gave me puzzled that clearly asked why would I give him a helmet when he didn’t have a bike to ride? His dad told he better go look in the garage.

Out the back door ran Gunnar, followed by his two brother’s. Racket and yelling emitted and was followed by Gunnar proudly rolling his bike out onto the patio. He stopped dead in his tracks and looked dead serious out across the snow-filled yard, then back at his dad. “Why would you give me a bike with all this snow?”

I am happy to report the snow is melting and Gunnar is now happily riding his Birthday Bike.

March 20th, Spring

First day of spring and the first early crocus opened its face near the foundation on the south side of my house. Snow is still piled high in the yard but quickly melting. The Montana sky is a bowl of the bluest of blues with snowy alpine mountains circling the valley. Summer is on its way.
