They say that when life gives you lemons, you’re supposed to make lemonade. Hmmm…lemonade has never been one of my favorite things, unless it’s loaded with sugar, and then it’s not very good for you! I much prefer sweet tea…and there once again is “sugar.”
We recently lost a wonderful man, my father-in-law, Bill. He was a true story-teller, and always had a chuckle in his voice. He was the only man I ever knew who would order coffee as “unsweet coffee.” He liked to stump the waitress.
He also liked to tell other stories, some of which I don’t dare re-tell, but I can say for sure that he was a blessing to me, and I’m grateful to have had him in my life these past 17 years.
I took some time away from writing, but now am anxious to get back at it. I plan to grow this website and hope to fill it with my own stories. And, from time-to-time, I may just have to insert a few of Bill’s one-liner’s. When I do, I hope that you will hear the chuckle in my voice.
