Today has been designated “Superman Day.”  I’m not sure why.  It’s one of those wacky holidays that really has no purpose other than to give us something to celebrate.  Today is also my second grandson’s 20th birthday – a milestone, if you will, where a young man gives up childish things and becomes a man.

The fact is, from the time he was 12 or so, he considered himself to be Batman.  He wore Batman t-shirts and even had a pair of Batman socks with little black capes on the cuffs.  I don’t know if he’s given up on being Batman, but if not, I’m sure he’d be miffed that his birthday coincided with Superman.

I’ve also become known as Batman’s grandma – a name I hold in high regard.  Who wouldn’t want to be the caped crusader’s grandmother?  It might mean I hold some super powers of my own. Well, let’s not get carried away.

So on this Superman Day, instead of blue spandex, (which I’d never get into anyway) I’ll don my Batman socks, get into that cool black ride and zip around town shouting happy birthday to Batman.  Well maybe not.  My car isn’t black and it’s as out of condition as I am.  Besides, my grandson has reached manhood now.  I wouldn’t want to make him look childish.




As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    I’m not saying that I am Batman, I am just saying that no one has ever seen me and Batman in a room together.

      My granddaughter might not agree. I fell asleep in the Star Wars movie with her yesterday. Can you believe it. She said I was snoring. Who sleeps in a movie like that? Needless to say she was mortified😜
