Yesterday I sat down and wrote a long and “terrific” column! And before I could send it, I must have hit a button that I never saw before and bing bang, it deleted itself. And when I say deleted that is just what I mean. No column and not a single word left!
Malcolm came home and I begged him to find it. I was sure that it was hidden somewhere in the computer but he spent an hour or so and found nothing! And I tried again and found absolutely zero. So I called a good friend and asked her what to do and she told me to turn the computer off for a few minutes and then turn it back on and she was sure my terrific column would reappear. However I did and it didn’t! So today I have gotten up, eaten breakfast and started all over again
What I worry about these days is the way our children behave. And what makes it worse it really isn’t their fault! When we were children our parents had strict rules and all of us had to follow them. We all had to sit at the dining table and eat what was put in front of us. No complaining and no discussion. Today children eat only what they want and mothers spend their dinner time figuring out what their loved one will eat! My mother and grandmother would turn over in their graves. And bad language?

Our new president Trump is the worst behaved not only president but man I have ever seen or heard of. His language is horrendous and he uses foul words whenever he speaks, even in public. Which brings this thought to mind- what do ur children think when they hear the ranting and raving with foul language. How is a mother today able to punish her children for using words that they learned from the president of the United States. Plus what do you suppose the rest of the world thinks about us? No longer are we considered the greatest country in the world. And he continues to embarrass us every time he opens his mouth. All we can hope is that he goes really to far and is impeached. In my 78 years I have never been ashamed of our
