|JANUARY 1 - GREGORIAN CALENDAR|
This was but the first sign of my on-going accumulation of youth.
The second major event is on the way...
|LUNAR NEW YEAR - HELLO, DOG|
THE ENTRANCE TO OUR NEIGHBORHOOD SUPERMARKET
Yes, in the corner of San Diego that we call home, everyone gets to celebrate the Lunar New Year. In our neighborhood, where English is not the dominant mother tongue, this is a big season. When you get beyond the entrance features above, this is what you see...
The "stands" for all the flowery plants are containers of seasonal treats. When the potted fruit trees come on display, I'll click on them for you.
Thirdly, February 28 and March 6 and April 1 are all reminders of an extra year added to my calendar.

This was at Christmas, 2017
So, when you live in San Diego, the calendar is a frightening tool to have on your wall. But...
Every time you look at it and every time the clock rings and you hear it, every time to awaken in the morning and the ceiling is still where it should be, you know that it is time to render thanks to God once again. So, may God drag all of us across these "memory lanes" one more time so that we can spend more of His time together with one another in the warmth of His loving embace.
Let's keep that in mind along with the reminder that there is to be no crying at my funeral.
