From Dick . . .
I began writing this weekly column in December of 1999, crafting almost 1,100 essays over 22 years. One of the great pleasures in my life is to receive a note from a reader thanking me for giving them a smile. Some forward my column to friends around the country, but my favorite compliment is when I am told the column ended up behind a magnet on the fridge door. “I wanted my husband (or wife) to see this because we often deal with similar issues.”
Thank you for checking out my observations each week. I wish for you a safe and happy New Year. Keep reading. And, of course, keep smiling.
