A Personal View..It's Really All About People, Isn't It?

I have always made a promise to myself to never, ever, publish too much about myself on the internet.  Since I started Tropi-Ties in 1995, I've kept pretty true to that deal.  However, I think that it's time to share just a little with you all about my life.

As you may have noticed, my posts have been infrequent lately.  I have been moving, building a house, living out of boxes for Gawd knows how long, planning an upcoming wedding for my dau.  It's been a challenge, but hey, anyone who knows me can tell you that I'm always up for a good, clean fight.

However, the hardest part hit a few days ago when my mom passed away.  She was very old and I was the last person required to give my OK to let her go peacefully into the night.  Surprisingly, I had no problem making that decision.  She had been struggling with the act of living for some time. It was my final gift to her.  Still, I'm going to miss here terribly, in spite of all the craziness that she caused.  She too, was also up for any kind of challenge that flopped down in front of her.  She taught me well. 

So, we raise our martini glasses to you Mom!

I promise to be back to business soon.
