I’ve Never Been This Age Before!

By Rosemary O’Keefe I hope you enjoyed your Easter holiday as much as I did. I enjoyed the company of my son, daughter, granddaughter and brothers. We shared a great four o’clock dinner in my sun room and then began talking about our recent adventures. No dyed eggs for me …
