Picked up my twin sister at the Philly airport yesterday. We then went to the Chinese Buffet in Tuckerton and pigged out. We're going to nephew's wedding in Baltimore on Saturday, also to rehearsal dinner on Friday.
Hmmm...guess I should put some profound philospophical comments here. Can't think of any.

Here's some info on me: Married 47 years --uh, oh! Now all the under-40's will click off, thinking, I'm willing to bet, that they can have no possible fellow feeling for me, being so decrepit and all. Well, think again--I'm much less an old lady than you think. Still not interested? Then beat it--your loss.
Have a husband seven years older with a variety of life-threatening conditions, including prominently, end-stage emphysema. Very few people know what that entails.
Four children, two of each, the BEST, brightest, most interesting people imaginable. Two grandchildren, 22 years apart: grandson is 23, grandaughter 1. Grandson has 3 1/2 year old boy himself, so I'm a great-grandmother. (Yeah, it seems incredible even to me.)
Born and brought up in Ventnor, NJ. After married, lived in Ewing Township, NJ for 41 years. Retired after 27 years at Rider University in Lawrenceville, NJ. Was manager of employment (no!, titles are not capitalized unless they come before name). Moved to Little Egg Harbor, NJ two years ago, and love it here.
Have a twin sister and three older brothers. Our older sister died 18 months ago. Mother lived to be 97; father was a civil engineer and was killed in an accident 55 years ago.
I really hate those commercials for products having to do with urination, defecation, and crap like that. Generally, don't like television.
Used to love Stephen King and Amy Tan, but disappointed in both recently.
Is anyone reading this? If so, comment.

Oh, yoicks, I created a blog, now what do I do? Guess I'll list my profile, maybe. Hmmm...will let me children and maybe others read this. Will just keep them informed of their father's and my comings and goings. Presumably, everybody else will be bored to death. Well, I'm musing and musing like crazy...
