Remembering D-Day In Cars

He was there. The day after young Americans traded in fear for fortitude, he was there. "He" was my father and the "there" were the beaches of Normandy the day after D-Day. He was a medic and I can't imagine what he found.  75 years later some of those same soldiers returned.  A grateful Europe... Continue Reading →

Sausages, beer, and merry-making are all things we Americans think of during this time of year.  A good Octoberfest celebration can be had just about anywhere in the country.  German or not, it's a reason to celebrate.

Fall Arrived Today

Thumbnail moon, tell me the story of fall. What colors will you bring to the leafy wilderness? How many marshmallows will I toast to perfection? Who will I snuggle with at the bonfire?  The anticipation for all that fall brings began today. The 80s made their departure. Here to stay...the fabulous 60s and windows open... Continue Reading →

Voices From the Past – Lessons Learned

I was interviewed last week by a local news outlet for whom I'll be writing auto content.  Excited about the new opportunity I anxiously awaited the phone call at the appointed time.
