This July I find myself with lots of things to write about:  thistles, my granddog’s death and a lemon tree. Do they go together, probably not. But it’s summer and I want you to know about them. Also I am recommending Being Mortal by Atul Gawande, a most significant book that I urge everyone, particularly seniors, to read.

Learn more about what's been keeping me busy this summer in my latest post What's New at My Place.
