Mama and I took our first big adventure in our new (used) chariot today. We went on a drive to the beach, which turned out to be even foggier than expected. So we enjoyed our picnic of leftover cheese platter inside the warm car!
Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama is a foggy beachside picnic in the car! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! And remember, kindness is everything!

My walk on the beach at Laguna with friends yesterday lifted my body and my spirit. We saw surfers, bodyboarders and swimmers in the ocean below the cliffs where we were walking. (Imagine swimming without a wetsuit in the 50+ degree F water….brrrrrrr.
Another good thing, for the past month and a half, has been the love and support of my family and many friends after the sudden death of my beloved husband, Joe. He was the picture of health: slender in shape, biked hours every day, ate healthy, took naps, and was socially engaged with our circle of friends. Concerts, plays, walks to local parks, so much engagement with his world. Sadly, his heart was not in great shape. And, being the proud doctor that he was, he figured he could deal with a heart condition on his own. No other doctor would know more than Joe. So, at age 81, June 24th, after some 19 hours of his sudden cardiac arrest and acute heart attack (he was cardioverted twice and began breathing, but his brain was gone), he stopped breathing and slipped away. I am thankful for my family and friends.
Oh Flo, we are so very sorry for your loss. He was such a good and kind and vibrant man. May his memory be a blessing. And we’re so glad that you have so much support. Sending you love!
