Mother’s Day…It’s Hard to Find the Words
I was thinking about my mother and how I ached to hug her. She passed away unexpectedly in March of 2007. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about her. I want to write about her, but it is difficult and, quite frankly, I can’t find the words.
Radio, Radio! Elvis Costello’s Best!
Fans of Elvis Costello are often considered by most to be an eclectic bunch of music fans. I am proud to say I am a part of that fan base! I was first introduced to Elvis Costello back in my college days in Topeka, Kansas. I’ve been a fan since that time!

Country music was played in my house a lot growing up. So, I’ve listened to Johnny Cash all my life. Cash’s music is the reason I connected with one of my oldest, and dearest friends.
