Sam's Side

A Puppy Love Story

There was never any doubt that Jennifer and I would someday be married. Rarely was one of our names mentioned without the other close behind. It was destiny, kismet, or sheer chance.

Sam's Side

Stop the Roller Coaster, I Want to Get On

During my teen years and young adulthood, the thrill of the amusement park never left me. Fortunately, my girlfriend who would later become my wife also enjoyed this obsession. After we were married and before our son was born, we would travel at least twice a year to Disneyland and feel ourselves transformed back to our childhood when it was all so new.

Alive and Kidding

Do You Remember Your First Kiss?

My thoughts suddenly drifted back to over 50 years ago…and my first kiss. Prior to the big event, I had read and memorized every article about kissing I could find in every teen magazine on the market. Back then, the hot topic in those magazines was whether or not a girl should allow a boy to kiss her on the first date.

Just Sayin’

Mama and Her Chocolate Box of Valentines

I am in awe of those that marry and stay together until they depart this earth. They are held together like the old glue that was used on those cards. They forge memories and their lives become intertwined into one.

Boomers Are Booming

People over 50 are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the United States. The Small Business Administration research shows that 2% of millennials are self-employed versus 8.3% for boomers. So boomers are actually driving the entrepreneurial boom.

The Expiration Date

The Search for Magic, Miracles, and Meaning

When I had lost all of my data, photos, and memories when my computers crashed before, it was like starting over and being forced to let go of the past and the details I deemed so important. Gone were the selfies, the precious links, the bookmarks, and the videos, not to mention a lot of my work. Oh, how attached we become.

Musings of an Undefeated Matriarch

Time to Get Out the Butter Knife

Mom used to say that on especially arctic nights the milk in our baby bottles froze. It’s a wonder we didn’t perish from the cold as infants, but we were hardy. As a teenager, I wrapped my school clothes around the stovepipe in an attempt to warm them.

Lovers Forever

Romance never dies. People grow older but the love spark remains in them forever. Cherish it, make the flame burn brightly, and you will be pleasantly surprised at what it does for your life.

Gray Matter

How Love Changes

Having a relationship with a man in your senior years is like having your legs waxed; it starts out hot, quickly turns painful, and you end up crying.


Dating, Chapter II

We cuddle when we watch TV and sometimes when we listen to music. He is passionate about classical music, as am I. We are also passionate about sex. It’s not as frequent or as sweaty as in our youth, but wonderfully satisfying nonetheless.
