Whistle? Who taught you how to whistle. Would you read a book about whistling? What would interest you about whistling? Is whistling protected under the 1st Amendment? When can you not whistle? Where is whistling illegal? What kind of whistle would you make if someone scared you and you were calling attention to them? Do you carry a whistle? 

I know I am not on the same letter everyone else is on with the A--Z. My parents died and my life is complicated. I built a cushion in so I would be less stressed. My parents died and I have an older sister who is not well. I was also in an accident and I am still dealing with back and wrist problems.

V for visiting

Visiting people. Some people visit businesses and they are the people they have connections with. Some people visit family and that is their connection. What happens when the family dies and all that is left are people you meet? 

Joining garden groups, bowling groups, red hat groups, Masons, churches, Lions, Jaycees, and all the other groups out there is one way of "breaking out of isolation." Inviting people over is a feat of nerves. I have never had a group of people at my house who did not judge and compare and believe their stuff was better. Sigh.

T is for Tuba

My biggest inheritance is a tuba. My parents died and I inherited a tuba. No big insurance or land or house or art or anything spectacular. I have a Besson Tuba from the 1930's or 1940's or something. Who knows? 

If I were to donate it, I would donate it to a female college student who plays tuba. That has to be a rarity. So far all of the things I have inherited have sold on Craigslist for $1.00. I inherited new Christmas lights too. 

Oh, I miss my silly parents.

S is for silly

Serious is over rated. Silly catches people off guard. Act crazy and people are less likely to take advantage or pester you. It is a safety measure. Talk to yourself. Pretend you are in a Woody Allen movie. Everyone talks to themselves in a Woody Allen movie.
