The burgundy van with dark tinted windows rolled slowly around the corner and pulled into our driveway. I exited the house, walked to the van, opened the passenger door and got in. Yep, Richard and I were off on another one of our Thursday morning coffee tours. It was our second one of the year.
Oh how nice to see water dripping off our roof again as today’s sunshine melted yesterday’s snow. Spring is sure taking it’s time again this year but we’re happy for every little inch of progress it makes.

These gave way to aphasia and hypertrophic cirrhosis. I completely lost my memory for a while. I know I had diabetes and acute ingestion, besides gastritis, rheumatism, lumbago and neuritis. I don't know how I pulled through it.... It was the hardest spelling test I've ever had."
Trying to control her frizzy and dry hair, Kay treated her scalp with olive oil before washing it. Worried that the oil might leave an odor she washed her hair several times with strong soap. That night when Kay went to bed, she leaned over to her husband and asked, "Do I smell like olive oil?" "Why ?" he asked, pulling back. "Do I smell like Popeye?"
