    I wish your friend all the very best. Hopefully it is not too far along and that there is a plan for treatment.

    Sadly that is not the case. A mutual friend told hubby on Friday, what he did not know is that he passed away earlier that morning.

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    At least five people have asked me today why I have my American flag pin on. I've actually gotten a couple of puzzled looks when I remind them that it is Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, the "9/11" of my parents' generation. Understandable I guess but I find it disappointing.

    My first flight to Seattle many eons ago was on December 7th. It was a very early flight with not many passengers. I guess the pilot was bored (at least he wasn't asleep!) so he came over the intercom and announced that we were having a quiz and the passenger with the most correct answers would get $25! I don't remember all five questions but it was about Pearl Harbor. Most people got three correct; a couple four; but I was the only passenger who got all five correct because I knew the answer to his last question. So let's see how attentive all of you were in History class (but your only reward will be a smiley face!):

    On what day of the week did the attack on Pearl Harbor take place?

    Normally we would put the flag out today, but we had electricians, plumbers and our cleaning people here today and with everyone going in and out of the garage(and working in the garage), the flapping flag by one of the garage doors would have been distracting and something people would have to avoid while social distancing.
