Memoir Moment: 2018 Starting Off with 98-Year-Old BJ


Happy New Year from BJ and me!

What better way to start the new year than with a wonderful friend. BJ and I have been friends since the first day I set foot in San Diego–more than 23 years ago. Here we are celebrating the new year at C Level, Harbor Island.

Each Tuesday we spend an afternoon together–having lunch, getting manicures. doing jigsaw puzzles, playing Rummikub, or just hanging out. It’s the high point of my week. BJ always has some words of wisdom to offer. My favorite is “just pretend.” That’s a way of actively changing your attitude. Speaking of attitude, I must say that BJ is one of the most positive people I know, even as she faces some physical and mental declines. BJ,  thank you for being such a beautiful friend.
