Naw, I'm not cowering in a fetal position. I'll never replace the man, but I ain't dead yet.
I was with the ladies who lunch at The Castle today, celebrating a close friend's 76th birthday. Our driver, about the best Bridge player around, ordered a dirty martini straight up for lunch. The woman be serious. She drives an outdated Lincoln in pristine condition. (Good Lord, that woman is 81 years old, I just learned. You wouldn't know it by sight.)
Great fun. All five of us loved Lyman. Three of us were widows. Three of us were the babies in families of seven children.
Lyman and I used to go to the birthday girl's house on Christmas Eves to help assemble toys for the grandkids.
