Not being a writer with a diploma (even from grade school) I have decided to start to post some of the many things that came across my mind during the past 50 years of a very long life. In December (two months away) I shall become 104 years of age. Some of the short articles I wrote may have been published before, at least they express my feelings about the things that were and are pertinent in my long life. More than half a lifetime in the Graphic Arts and 56 years as a member of this wonderful organization... I still live alone and am bound to a wheel chair having lost all the cartilage in my knees. Johnnie II is my house mate and she's pretty; to be honest she is blessed with a loving nature but when the door bell sounds or a stranger comes into her home she disappears. Her life is wrapped around me and no one else.
