Sexagenerians in the City
My friend Karen and her hubby Dave have just moved back to Cleveland, Ohio from Carmel, California. I met Karen about 19 years ago when I first started teaching. She was the fun teacher in class - the kids always had some cool project they were working on for her class - and out of class - she led the way down the bike trail and to happy hour after work. Long ago when we still worked in the same school and lived in the same city, and I was a young single teacher, Karen also set me up on some interesting dates. She knows everybody. And now that she has moved here and there around the country, she and Dave have finally started blogging. They are co-authors of Sexagenarians in the City. If you head over to check it out and happen to have lived in Cleveland, Ohio anytime in the past 40 years, yes, their friend Dan is that Dan, Daffy Dan.
The blog is a slice of life. Granted their life includes living in a loft in downtown Cleveland life, finding people making out on their doorstep, waiting for the water to cool off before taking a shower, navigating city traffic on a bike, and dealing with Eddie Eddie the super.
