Middle age. The middle ground. Mid-career. No matter which part of my life I look at, I can signpost it with a “mid-way there.”  It’s all about enjoying the ride – and sharing the fun, which is what I’ll be doing with this blog. I also believe in good writing and will keep trying to write posts worth reading – that might give you pause for thought or make you smile with recognition. From travel to music, pop culture to history, parenting to dealing with aging parents, join me for the ride – and please do comment, share or even sign up to follow me.

    Just got the twitter follow. Gotta say I love T Ball Moms! Looks like you’re doing good…

    1. Hey, Brian. Just found your comment on my blog – thanks for that! Yes, doing alright. I’m not sure whether it’s more fun being a T-ball mom or a hockey mom – except the weather’s nicer during T-ball season.
