PAUL PEDULLA – ARTIST (AND WRITER)

Paul Pedulla is my cousin-in-law. This post honors Paul as an Artist.  He and Steve were cousins and also good friends. As a result, we saw him when we were in Boston in 2008, and he and his partner Lawrence had dinner with us when they were in Los Angeles in 2013 (I think itContinue reading “PAUL PEDULLA – ARTIST (AND WRITER)”

AUGUST 9, 2018 – STEVE ORLANDELLA, INTERMENT

Where do I begin? It is only August 18, and I feel like I have lived several lifetimes during this month. It started on Monday, July 31st. I had one of those “a-ha” moments in which I knew I had to get Steve’s ashes to Boston ASAP. What was the rush? I don’t know. AllContinue reading “AUGUST 9, 2018 – STEVE ORLANDELLA, INTERMENT”

COMFORT ZONES

Between you and me, I don’t think I have any comfort zones anymore. Steve and I had created a comfort zone together, and were very happy, writing, working, and eating “comfort food” – pasta, Steve’s gravy, and his special homemade meatballs along with olives, baguettes, salami, and fresh ground parmesan cheese or Romano. We didContinue reading “COMFORT ZONES”

FOOD FOR THOUGHT IN “THE INTERESTING TIMES IN WHICH WE LIVE”

As the old Chinese curse has it: “May you live in interesting times,” and the twentieth century is probably the most “interesting” period mankind has ever known. Now and then, I see an article on Facebook that I save because something about it is “interesting’ to me.  After I save it, I may or mayContinue reading “FOOD FOR THOUGHT IN “THE INTERESTING TIMES IN WHICH WE LIVE””

A BASEBALL MEMORY

In the midst of all the chaos going on in the world, especially in my United States, it is good to remember constants that bring us together. Like baseball.  Apple pie.  Hot dogs. Even though baseball is in “full swing” right now, I need to post this video. It makes me feel good when theContinue reading “A BASEBALL MEMORY”

A TIME TO REMEMBER

I was born in 1937. This is true. I remember as if it were yesterday. A Gentle Reminder “Born in the 1930s and early 40s, we exist as a very special age group. We are the smallest group of children born since the early 1900s. We are the last generation, climbing out of the depression, whoContinue reading “A TIME TO REMEMBER”

A DAY BY THE SEA IN ANTIBES

On Saturday, June 16, 2018, two of my U.S. expat friends, Pamela Keilson (from San Francisco) and Margaret Keith (from Selma, Alabama), drove with me to a fun event by the Sea in Antibes, hosted by The American Club of the Riviera (ACR). Antibes is the home to Port Vauban, the largest yachting harbor inContinue reading “A DAY BY THE SEA IN ANTIBES”

A MEMORY IN MARSEILLE – JUNE 9, 2016

  On June 8, 2016, Steve and I drove to Marseille to spend the night so that we would be in town early the next morning to meet his Auntie Gloria and cousin, Erica. They were passing through Marseille on a Carnival Cruise, and we all wanted to spend time together for a day. WeContinue reading “A MEMORY IN MARSEILLE – JUNE 9, 2016”

JUST WONDERING……..

Often, from time to time, I read something that I save for no good reason.  Somehow, it speaks to me.  Not too long ago, I read this – probably on Facebook, and it spoke to me.  Today, I want to share it with you. I want to thank the author – Author Unknown – forContinue reading “JUST WONDERING……..”
