The chances of reaching the last day of your fourth quarter century are between slim and none. So, the focus becomes increasingly upon the past. Memories are important because relationships are. Achievements become less likely.
In the next few posts I will be describing fond memories, beginning with funny ones. I leave you with just one such.
It was at the marriage of my niece Becky. We were at the reception when I noticed her younger sister, Serena, sitting in chair holding a brown paper bag which obviously had some prohibited beverage in it since Serena was drinking from the paper bag. I asked Serena to show me what was in the bag. I was expecting to see a bottle of beer or a vodka or tequila. She slipped the edge of the brown paper down just low enough to reveal that she was drinking a beverage containing forbidden caffeine: Dr. Pepper.
