Leading to the Leaving…

Sunday April 13, 1941 The doorbell woke me at 6 bringing me a corsage from Jake with even a little poetry enclosed.   I’d love to know what the poetry said.  So cute!   Wednesday April 16, 1941 Jakey took us to work this morning.  I told him to pick out a camera and let…

Beginning of April – No Joke!

Hello, I am here.  I hope that means that I am back and will post more frequently.  I’m sure many writers can relate to how hard it is to get going when writing inertia and life momentum gets going.  Mostly, I find it is harder and harder the longer I am away.  Regardless, however long…
