I was so excited to sit and watch the Rams on the national stage on Monday night. I gave the kids a bath, did the dishes, and sat with a bowl of ice cream. I was in heaven.
Being an ‘Elder’ Has
Over Those Both
Younger and Older
I am the oldest person in our immediate family, both sides. The Senior Member, so to speak. You may recall that Medicare and I became fast friends about ten months ago. And for the most part, it has been an amicable relationship. I don’t really need any supplemental plans, thank the Good Lord Above. Things are generally going well. One can only take it one day at a time, however, especially since my last birthday put me square into the ranks of “Elderly”, according to US Government parlance.
It’s difficult to write an up to date column when the deadline is before the big game but is published after the game is over, but that’s where I stand on Tuesday. By the time you read this the Cards have either wrapped it up at home or facing a Game 5 in Los Angeles.
Sometimes you get to the point where you just can’t handle it and that is where the Rams put my state of mind over the weekend. I left the house to go to the boys’ soccer games and listened in the car as the Rams built a 21-0 lead.

Our fingers are crossed that this one works.

On Tuesday, Sept. 2, we marked the official end of World War II. It was called VJ Day, for Victory over Japan. Victory over Europe, or VE Day was a few months earlier on May 8, 1945, to be exact. That war saw some 80,000,000 die, either as combatants, civilians, prisoners, or just because of their ethnicity. It was world
barbarism at its worst, characterized by vicious hand-to-to hand combat, massive bombing, new weaponry, ethnic cleansing and ultimately, the first, and so far only, use of atomic power by one country against another.So far.
