Every Day in May—EDM #107 How I get my news


Day 7—Simple and easy way to get all my news. I seem to go here for everything.

Sketching on the plane this wayward 5th generation Californian travels back from sunny and warm San Francisco to not so sunny and warm Maine. It was a lovely week visiting my parents in the house I grew up in.

My parents Jim and Jackie Lawson—84 and 85 (that's me in the middle and I am not telling my age). Their day starts at the gym, then the dog park with their dog Freddie Brown (my adopted youngest brother), reading the San Francisco Chronicle and the Wall Street Journal, catching up on the market and Fox (UGH!) and then in the evening we all yell out answers to Jeapordy with a glass or two of Two Buck Chuck. They are amazing!

I love you mom and dad.

It looks like you have a lot to live up to! What a treasure to have parents like that.

Happy Mother's Day Jackie Lawson! Your parents are just what I hope to be like at their age, Jennifer, and I don't have far to go! I'll bet they enjoyed your visit as much as you did!

Love the photo. And this is the way I get my news too.

Sounds like a good life. Since you are not telling your age I can only assume they were in their 60's when you were born! Right.
