My cousin Donna always had a little write-up in the local paper on her birthday- we’re grand kids of people who built the town in the 1920s.
So on Sept 1 each year she’s had a nice little write-up. It took her about 20 years to stop being 29, and now I think it’s been bumped up to maybe 45.
Donna’s six weeks older than I am in “real life”, and about 6 feet tall. Donna holds a Contractor’s License and doesn’t do a lick of work— she’s always young, works out, and she’s feared on the job! I love her dearly but don’t drive down to see her often enough.
Newspapers are getting to be endangered now. It’s all electronic. Well, hopefully, the paper will outlast my cousin, and it will probably lie about her age at death. There’s really nobody we can trust anymore!
BTW: My mom told me this, “Never write down anything that you would not like published on the front page of your newspaper.” I’ve stayed out of a lot of trouble by doing that. Hopefully, Donna isn’t in RB! If I stop doing anything in here suddenly, send the cops. She will have murdered me with somebody’s framing hammer!
