An Old Forgotten Photo ~ by Katrina Curtiss 7/8/2020

During the COVID-19 Virus, I’ve been struck with a cleaning virus, not to make light of the situation, but it’s a bit much even for me.   Going through drawers, I found a picture of Howard, my biological father. He left for “greener” pastures when I was 5, new love,…

A 4th of July Memory ~ by Katrina Curtiss 7/4/2020
