For several years I’ve been gathering stories about the challenging job of raising five children in the ’50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, before my solo world travels began. It’s fun, especially when mixed with a sense of humor, and makes a great tale. I’ve decided to post some of these chapters, as well as my essays over the years, for your entertainment. I’m sure many of you will relate to the stories and laugh with me as you uncover my deepest or silliest thoughts.
