Here goes–I’m timing myself.
I always think i will spend just ten minutes. Fifteen at the most.
No. I start writing and the next thing I know, thirty minutes–45-minutes, have gone by.
Today is my I was BAPTIZED into the Mormon Church Day.

Just time with my kids.

Chris is 72 today. He hardly looks a day over 70.
Today is also Memorial Day.
