Leslie's Day

Today is my sister Leslie's birthday. She has been my best friend forever. We live in separate states now, but whenever we get together, we just pick right back up where we left off.

She is my sister, friend, protector, nurse, comedian, roll model, boss, Christian example. She is a mother, sister, wife, flight attendant, secretary, actress, painter, woman, chauffeur, girl scout, hair dresser, maid, teacher, Aunt, homecoming queen and friend to so many.

I can't even begin to tell you all the stories we have that we STILL laugh about. Slamming doors, forks, riding lawn mowers, Planet of the Apes, bomb, stereos, riding in cars, singing in the bathroom mirror, me in the back seat on her dates.

And we still have fun! Yearly sister trips. Santa Barbara, New York, Paris, Monhegan Island and I know I am forgetting something.

Thank you Les for being there for me whenever I call and always having my back.

I Love You Sooooo Much!!!!!
Happy Birthday!

Aurelio Zen

I love Masterpiece Theater on PBS and just finished watching three Sunday's worth of author Michael Dibdin's "Aurelio Zen" mysteries. Actor Rufus Sewell played Italian policeman Aurelio Zen perfectly.
So, this has led me to continue reading the next book in the series, Dead Lagoon. I am enjoying a little armchair traveling through Venice!
