I tripped on my porch steps and have some bruises. Of course I told my daughter about it. I got a drawing from her in the mail this morning. I love the cartoon characters she draws. She spoils her Mom.

Lovely Gift


My golfing buddy, Ellie, brought this center piece, she made, over the other day and told me to keep it on the porch back for a week or so to keep it fresh. Who could do that? IT’S IN MY LIVING ROOM AND I’M LOVING IT.

The following review is the most recent one on the kindle version.

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.
