I had a chance to visit Miami Beach over Labor Day weekend and stayed at the lovely Confidante Hotel.

I know that seems strange but The Old Man has requested to keep some of his freedom and live alone for a … Continue reading Adventures with The Old Man: The Old Man gets a Smart Phone
For many years music has been a major part of my life. It has always been something that moves me. The key part to this is I can listen to many different genres of music and due to my natural indecisive nature I don’t actually have a favorite.

The Old Man (affectionate term for my father) was invited to his first amputee picnic, so you know what that means. We were going no matter what!
