Life moves on and my ranting days are behind me. I hope, however, to close with a look back at the factors that have contributed to making my life fulfilling and satisfying. They will be issued periodically so I hope you will check them out and share your insights with me as I look back on 91 years. And I might still find the need to nostalgically look back at scenes from the alleged "good old days."

ANOTHER LESSON AT UBER U - Intended For President Trump
was I to know that there was someone in the backseat leaning against
the door? She almost fell out as I opened the door, but I was quick
to note her gorgeous platinum hair and exquisite handbag! Naturally
I quickly shut the door, went to the driver's side, apologized and
tried to remain remain quiet for the rest of the ride while only
I could restrain myself only so long and begin a conversation with
the driver, John. Finally getting to my "attention-getting
statement, 'I'm 92'” I was finally able to look at the young lady
as she spoke in what I learned was a Ukrainian accent. How
fascinating to learn that she has been here as a refugee for one year
but her status is uncertain. Her crime? Participating in rallies
against government corruption and support of the LGBT community!
how I would like to have our president each day read the words on the
Statue of Liberty:
ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she With silent lips.
“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to
breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send
these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside
the golden door!”
