I never expected life to speed by so quickly. I began driving when you put your hand outside the window to make a left turn. I had children when nobody knew whether it would be a girl or a boy. what a surprise- I got one of each! I began work when I was 14 years old and every penny went straight to mom who paid the bills and gave me a small allowance. I didn’t know we were poor. We were happy and three older brothers meant lots of competition so we ate fast to be the first to get second helpings. We went to college and got advanced degrees. We all had professional careers and rather comfortable lives. I still have the girl of my dreams to be with for the last life quarter. After 58 years together we know and understand each other. Too old for surprises we are predictable. Life is quiet and good...enjoy.
