  Since I am writing on Monday evening, I am reflecting on the phrase of our day -- “thank you for your sacrifice.” Today we remembered those who gave their lives for our country and served to protect us all. Today we express gratitude for acts of courage of so many over so many years that resulted in the loss of their lives. We hear so many stories from those who served. My father-in-law was the pharmacist’s mate on a navy destroyer, the USS Beatty, that sank in the Medit...

Still?     It is January 8 and I am still wishing people a Happy New Year. Are you?     At what point does it no longer feel right to be extending that greeting? Is January 15 a good time to stop? Halfway through the first month of the year. I'm not really sure.   Well, happy new year! This could be the last time I am going to say that until 2020 . . .     ...

  As we all wake up today, it is the start of a new year — kind of like a new beginning.     Think about your first day of high school, first day of college, first date, new job, birth of your first or second child . . . So many things happen in our lives that start a new cycle of life.     That’s how I feel about January 1st every year. There is a whole fresh year ahead. Who knows really what we will be talking about on New Years Eve of 2019. But on New Years Day we have...

  Here in the middle of the winter, we look for a White Christmas. A cold brisk day with some snow to encourage Santa and the reindeer on his sleigh. The season is noted by beautifully decorated trees visible to passersby.     My daughter just came back from Australia where it is the middle of the summer. A balmy 105 degrees just before she left. Christmas preparations down under are different. They include getting ready for a Christmas barbeque after spending the afternoo...

  Anyone else feeling like December is just going way too fast this year?   I’ve been planning January for the last two weeks. Usually I don’t get there until just right about now.     I’m not sure what I think about this holiday speed. I love the holiday season. It is chock full of celebrations and good feelings. I prefer for it to linger for a while but 2018 does not seem to be cooperating.     Anyone have a trick for slowing down December?     I’m all ears. ...

  I’ve written about my mother in law before but after a recent visit, I had to write again.     She is ninety-six and clear as a bell. So, count backwards with me. She was born in 1922. Think about the history that she lived through and remembers in glorious detail.     During our time together last week, she was in a story telling mood. That’s my favorite time, usually because her stories always include some “little Billy” follies.     During this visit though, her s...

  I know you all won’t read this until Memorial Day has passed, but I wanted to take this opportunity to say “thank you for your service” to all of those in our Gotham family, and beyond, who have served our country. It is an act that is way too often taken for granted but critical to each of us every single day.     My mom told a story this weekend about my dad’s service during the Korean War. For a number of reasons, he enlisted. They had been together about a year and he...

I was one of those kids who danced. I spent hours and hours at dancing school for years and years. With all candor, I wasn't very good. In every recital photo, if the whole group is pointing to the left, I am pointing to the right. If the group is doing pirouettes, I am down on one knee. You get the idea. I had so much trouble keeping up. But I loved it. I remember being in the audience at Radio City Music Hall when I was seven years old watching the Rockettes perform at t...

  It gets earlier every year.     I used to comment that the songs, sounds and decorations of the holidays had arrived just after Thanksgiving. I thought that was early.     Then, all of those came along with Thanksgiving. I thought that was early.   Have you noticed that holiday decorations are already up around town – and a song or two have been playing on the radio? Now, that’s really early.       Don't get me wrong -- I am a big fan of the holiday season, so I don’t ...
