Gary says: “Name 3 places in 3 sentences that you have LOVED visiting, favorites!!!!”
ok! Thanks for the inspiration, Gary
1. The town of Otaru in Japan is one of my favorite places (the canal is beautiful, and the crab and Sapporo beer delicious)!
2. In the mid 1990s, I visited an old friend in Redondo Beach, CA and he took me to the Wayfarers Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes…I thought…if I ever get married again, it will be in that gorgeous chapel (google it, you won’t be disappointed).
3. And of course, the Cape Cod of my childhood: Surf Drive Beach, where I spent HOURS swimming and had a frozen Milky Way for the first time; downtown with it’s many charms, not the least of which was the old fashioned movie theater…saw The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming there ; the restaurant, Elsie’s, that served the BEST hot pastrami sandwiches I ever had…sadly, it’s no longer there.

Yesterday, a Facebook friend posted a map of a potential snow storm on the east coast that said this area could potentially get 30 inches of snow on Friday! Yikes!
The Blizzard of ‘78 began on a Monday morning, February 6th and finally tapered off on Tuesday evening. After all was said and done, we ended up with about 27 inches of snow.
I was living with my friend Sue and her 2 year old son Joel at that time and I vividly remember plopping him onto a sled and pulling him down to the local Store 24 to buy groceries. There was no driving LOL! Although, that weekend, I can remember driving into Boston with Sue to see a band we followed, and almost sliding off the road, but we were young and determined to have fun LOL!
Anyway…30 inches, eh? I’m hoping the storm blows out to sea. But part of me would LOVE to see that much snow again!

Claudia mentioned to me awhile back that she’d like to hear about the past life reading I had at Lilydale NY and I thought some others might be interested, so here goes.
The woman who did the past life reading told me about a few lives, and in two of them I was a child who passed away at an early age, one about 6 years old, of complications of starvation during WWII in Germany, but not in the camps, and in the other life I was about 10 years old during a war in France, in which my family and I were killed. Starvation was an issue, and maybe that explains my addiction to food in this life!
She told me that my parents and I sought each other out three times to be a family together. I liked that.
I was also a courier in the revolutionary war. I rode my horse from Boston to VA* and back and relayed information I was given verbatim. Apparently, in that life I had a fantastic memory. Must’ve burned it out for all future lives LOL. I also was a drinker who could drink anyone under the table and could hold my liquor amazingly well. Also had the gift of gab
In another life, I was a powerful and wealthy politician in Rome. Yikes!
My friend Maureen had a reading as well, and was told she was a general in a previous life. After we left the woman’s house, we were walking underneath some trees and a garland of flowers fell on Maureen’s shoulder. Don’t know why there was a garland of flowers up in a tree, but there you go.
*I guess I liked this route so much I recreated it in this lifetime (albeit on a metal horse) as I drove back and forth between Boston and VA many, MANY times in the 80s and 90s and even lived in VA for a couple years.
