Happy Birthday Rachel

 For months, I've seen this card in my "card drawer", didn't open it, but kept thinking---"I'll save this for Rachel's birthday."  Rachel is a big Joan Walsh Anglund fan and was even sketched by her when Rachel was little.  So, with Rachel's 40th birthday approaching, I got out the card and was stunned that it was a used card.  When I read what it said, I knew that my mother has a way of guiding me although she has been gone almost 10 years.
 I love Dad's note---sounds so much like him.  So, I added a note to the card. .. .
 Stuck it in its original envelope and mailed it.

I hope Rachel saves it and sends it to Libby on her 40th birthday. Because I'm not sure that I will have the "reach" from Heaven.  I'm putting this on my blog, just in case that's my way to tell Libby, "Happy 40th birthday!"

Between Two Worlds

Most of my life, I've considered it fortunate that I was just ahead of the Baby-boom. Generally, the Baby-boomers were born between 1946 and 1964 after the fathers returned from World War II. It was a huge population explosion that has reverberated through American society.

This blog will be part history, part memories, part reflections of a retired teacher, but active "Senior". I have always felt like I straddled two generations forming a bridge. Sometimes I think like a baby-boomer, but sometimes I'm locked into my parents' Depression era thinking. I'm a dichotomy of two eras. But, I'm always ready to try something new---so here I am dipping my toes in the water of Blogworld.
