These are the thoughts and observations of me — a woman of a certain age. (Oh, my, God, I'm 60!) I'm single. I'm successful enough (independent, self supporting). I live in the burbs and work in the city (Chicago, the best city in the world). I'm an aunt, a friend and a colleague. I feel that voices like mine are rather underrepresented online or in print. So here I am. If my musings resonate with you, please visit my blog again sometime.

The weekend challenge: Start with these 5 words and turn it in to a story of only 33 words. The 5 word prompt is NOT to be
counted in the 33 words.
Title: "Mr. Businessman"
The phone rang at 4am.
“Good morning.” Her voice was pleasant but unfamiliar. “This
is your scheduled wakeup call. The weatherman says today will be sunny and 43º.”
