Something old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

When I first saw today’s Daily Post Word “Borrowed”, I admit, my thoughts first went to this cherished old saying for weddings. But I had no idea where to take it. 
Sometimes we need to go back to the drawing board, come up with new ideas. My second thought was about how we all borrow. We borrow from neighbors, we borrow our own lives. Unless you will be here an eternity from now, all this, all you see is borrowed. 
But now, my mind is coming back to that old saying. Some people borrow a hand kerchief, some people borrow a dress, or a tie. And then there was the most touching thing I have ever seen at any wedding ceremony I have ever been to. Luckily, it was mine. 
I have spoken of my wife in my blog before, but I have never spoken of her parents. They are awesome people. Sadly, we don’t get to see them very often because they live in Montana. Her dad is now 80 years old. He has Alzheimer’s. For some people it can be suffering, but for him, he has his fair share of pain, but he is so far into the depths of this terrible disease he doesn’t remember. I have had the honor of seeing one moment of clarity, which I will remember for the rest of my life. 
Okay, back to June 29th, 2013. That was the day my bride and I got married (even though I didn’t go to the courthouse to get the marriage license). Her daddy was not able to make the trip to Minnesota for the ceremony. 
So, the time for the daddy/daughter dance. I didn’t even have any idea this was about to happen, but it did!! Not a dry eye in the house as my father got up for the daddy/daughter dance. And it didn’t stop there!! There were a few other men who stepped up as well. If there is one thing I know for sure, my bride is loved!! Even though her real daddy couldn’t be there, many father figures stepped up for the occasion. For a song, my bride got to borrow other daddies!!

I Only Want To See You Bathing, In The Puple Rain.

If you look enough throughout history, I am sure you can find a sad event somewhere, anywhere in the world, every single day. Today, we lost a music legend!! 
He rose from the bad neighborhoods of Minneapolis, Minnesota in the early 80’s to become a music legend. Today it has been officially reported that Prince, 57, has died. 
When I lived in The Twin Cities I used to sing his song, Purple Rain, at karaoke bars around Bloomington, Burnsville and Apple Valley. I met a woman in Bloomington at David Fong’s Chinese Restaraunt and every Thursday I would be there singing karaoke and she without fail would request Purple Rain. I only wish someone had recorded me singing it so I could share it with you all. 
It’s another sad day in the music world, but Prince did leave his legendary mark before leaving us so soon. May his music live on long after today, rest in peace, Prince. 

Long Long Time!! 

It has been a long long time since I have posted in Sutter Press. I have spent so much time trying to move ahead with Rolling Blogger. How is everyone doing? I hope all is well. 

Are there any topics you would like me to talk about in Sutter Press? Let me know. 

Oh Lord, Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood

I don’t know if Jack Sutter likes us re-blogging to his site, but I feel strongly that there are too many young, stupid lovers out there who ignore the signs of a potential abuser. Be safe, people! Listen to friends and family who try to warn you!

Cordelia's Mom, Still

Mo-ooom? [sob].  Come get me.  I’m scared!”

It was 1978. I was 26 years old and had been married for 6 years to the man I thought was the love of my life.

Jimmy (not his real name) was charming. Jimmy was loving.  Jimmy was fun.  Jimmy enjoyed cooking, and when not working his construction job, he cooked at various restaurants.  People would follow him to each restaurant because his food was so good, and presented with such zest.  Everyone loved Jimmy.

But there were signs. My mother tried to warn me, but all she could do (and did more than once), was to tell me that no matter what happened in my life, no matter what was done to me, no matter what I did to anyone else, I could always come home.

I was young and in…
