My cruise-mate Edrie Royals and Jackson companions Margaret Vise, Ann Barksdale, Carole Kirkland and I were on a Danube River cruise and our boat had docked near Kalosca, Hungary.

The tour Edrie and I had picked out for this stop was the cowboy rodeo in Kalosca.

I can’t carry a tune in a lard bucket, but on this day I could almost hum, same song, second verse in perfect voice. A group of ladies from Jackson, Ann Barksdale, Margaret Vise, Carole Kirkland, cruisemate Edrie Royals and I were on a Danube River cruise. Our ship, the Viking Jarl had docked in Kalosca,  we would be there until late evening.

I check my watch — 4:20 and almost time for my afternoon dog walk with Roo Roo.

Before I put my raincoat on, and command Roo to a sit position so I can hook her up, I open a scrapbook of my Sun articles, and turn to one written three years ago today.

I check the time. 11:55 p.m. On this night, I’m not dancing or raising a glass of champagne as a band plays nostalgic tunes and ushers in the New Year.

My brother Alvin and his wife Becky had brought me to a Christmas sing-along at the brightly decorated Country Club of Jackson. On this night we were downstairs in the Onyx, a room filled with joyous, celebrating people calling out hellos and greetings to one another.
