 Lots of good memories.  I lived in a neighborhood full of kids and we’d play hide and seek until 10:30pm in the summer time.

I volunteered for several years as a family and divorce mediator. It was great to get two oppositional people together, sitting across the table from one another and see if they could settle their differences.

My precious grand-daughter!!! It is more fun than I ever imagined!
