This Musing is actually going to handle a couple of subjects that are on my mind right now. I ask for your patience. If you haven’t already you may wish to read my two previous Musings which are companions to this one. Yesterday, I’m sitting in my car in the parking lot of a small … Continue reading Musing 9/12/17 ~ Are We Getting Too Old For This S***?

Anyway, I thought maybe … Continue reading Musings 7/10/16: These are a Few of my Favorite…Authors!
