I have recently come to realize I am twice blessed.
The First Blessing; The Satsuma Virgin
We are nearing the end of the satsuma mandarin season in the Sierra Nevada foothills near Sacramento. I have perfected my peeling skills and usually remove the peel in one piece. I realized last night the peels have been formed in the shape of the Virgin Mary. Certainly she has been divinely guiding my mortal hands to produce this apparition. I am humbled.
The Second Blessing; My Sister Married a Radio Cowboy
That's something I never thought I would never be able to say. But that's the truth.
My brother-in-law is a long-time radio personality who occasionally impersonates Will Rogers and Mark Twain. He was recently the guest on a Milwaukee TV show. He appears as Will Rogers and as himself.
