It pains me to say this but, apparently, I have passed away. Not part of the big plan but, once again, I did not get my way. To my daughter and anyone else that I warned about coming back to haunt them, now is a good time to start sleeping with one eye open. The good news is, I no longer must cook for picky eaters, not to mention LSU’s 2019 stellar football season – I am at peace now. The memories I take with me are much more precious than any gemstone known to mankind.
