Coffee Cup Series A

A sense of humor, of course, became a family thing because of my Dad’s marvelous way of putting a light-hearted take on serious situations.

Our family get-togethers were ripe with humor and hearty laughter, and several of my five brothers were especially adept at telling stories and jokes.

This pictured coffee cup was a birthday gift from my son and his wife, who actually picked it out just for me. They understand that writing is my way of life!
