"Patient praises radiation oncology care, Cyberknife"
FOCUS: September 29, 2010 Volume 21
My active senior citizen life included volunteering, visiting grandchildren, pursuing a second career and having fun . . . until a tumor appeared. For years, I had ignored regular headaches. Then in late 2008, I mentioned a new, sharper headache to my primary care physician. CT and MRI scans
revealed a lump – a meningioma tumor the size of my grandson’s Matchbox car...Read More!

"Celebrate Grandparent's Day: Keeping Communication Going with Grandchildren"
From the age of six, I was one of those fortunate kids with a resident grandfather. That was a great blessing, but I regret very much that I didn’t ask for more details of his early life. Born in 1864, he could remember times not long after the Civil War. Imagine the memoir he could have written!...Read More!

"Memories of Christmases Past"
Christmas in our household in the 1930’s was not exactly like a Norman Rockwell painting, but it was traditional and joyous all the same. With four children and a resident grandfather, my parents had their hands full. Fortunately we lived on a farm, where we grew almost everything to feed us and were able to sell dairy products, meats, and garden produce. As children we were aware that some of our neighbors and schoolmates were not as blessed as our family, and sharing was a way of life through church and the community...Read More!
"Rethinking Retirement: Where Do I Go From Here?"
Working on publication
As friends and family members began to retire, voluntarily or
otherwise, my own future looked woefully uncertain. I was reasonably prepared financially, but the reality of living alone for an unknown span of years had not sunk in. My health was excellent, my mother’s family had included several 95-year-olds, and my prospects of living to be 100+ were better than average...Read More!
"A Special Day at the Farm"
For my grandchildren
“Come on, Jenny, I’ll race you to the barn!” Ten-year-old Matt and his older sister pelted toward Grandpa, waiting in the open doorway. Matt’s head start helped him reach the barn two strides ahead of Jenny...Read More!
Charles T. Cup
Illustrated by Ron Wheeler
Hardcover, 33 pages, 2012
When you’re beautiful, elegant, and surrounded by others similar to you, it’s too easy to become self-absorbed, selfish, and full of pride. Charles T. Cup was an example of the best of fine china in a luxurious home—until the day the Platter crashed into him and nicked his handsome golden rim. Charles found himself discarded, donated to The Mission to gather dust and cobwebs in its Thrift Shop. But then a Friendly Person found him and cleaned him off to serve a wonderful new mission—helping homeless people who feel unloved and unwanted, just by providing them with a drink of water or coffee. Charles T. Cup learned that there is satisfaction in serving others, even if you aren’t perfect. Life was good. And best of all, the story is based on a real Sunday Breakfast Mission! For ages 4-8.
