Try it! You'll like it!

There are many things in life I have been asked to try. Some worked out better than others.

Riding a bike (still love it)

Liver (still hate it)

The violin (and the playing goes on, almost 4o years later)

Roller coasters (Dad's idea, and a good one)

Learning to drive (thanks, Mom and Dad, for forcing me)

Jumping off a cliff into a raging river (oh, wait, that was my idea, still the most adventurous thing I've ever done)

A helicopter ride into the Grand Canyon (would have been much better if I didn't already have food poisoning)

New hairstyles (only if Brenda cuts it)

Writing everyday for the month of March (almost done)

Writing a book (The Good Doctor should quit asking)

And now I'm trying progressive lenses (no comment)

Hope this works out.


  1. I wear progressive lenses and have had no problems w/ them. I reverted to glasses permanently when I had to start wearing reading glasses w/ my contacts.

    Great format for a slice.

    1. So far so good. I like them. So, I have been wanting to ask - any chance the Funk relatives came from eastern PA? Because I have Funks in my line and every time I see your name I want to ask.

  2. Great idea for a writing challenge! Are you writing a book? I want to but I procrastinate... Hate my progressives, often take them off to read...
