February 25, 1957

Well, I won’t be 65 until 2022.

My 25-yr-old son and I (we live together) are doing well. We did actually go to my mother’s for a mini-reunion at Christmas, and no one caught COVID-19 so we feel lucky. We’ve been really careful since the epidemic started; no one enters our house, etc.

I’ve been retired since 2011 and am disabled, so I spend most of my time reading, browsing the web, watching movies, and working crossword puzzles. Normally I meet with the local Mensa chapter for lunch once a week, but that ended when COVID-19 came along because we’re a fairly old bunch.

Once this pandemic is over I want to go out to eat.

If you could spend the day with someone famous (alive or dead) who would it be and why?

I’d like to spend the day with either Barack or Michelle Obama. They come across as honest, intelligent, hard-working people and they both seem like they would be charming company. Their lives are far more interesting than mine, and I’d just love to see them “unplugged.”

My favorite saying: This too shall pass. (I have many favorite sayings, but this one seems pertinent.)

No I do not plan to attend the 50th reunion.
