Can you believe that 2018 is all but gone? I had my 80th birthday in March. MiraLax became an item I searched for when I ordered my over-the-counter medicines from my health care provider: Humana. Downtown Auto, the auto repair service I had used for years, closed its doors. In February, Dimitris and I did a very enjoyable cruise in the Caribbean. Then there was the shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in south Florida. I learned that the chief naval officer who mentored me when I was a young seaman had died as a pastor in Hawaii. We had our house painted. In September, I accompanied my Greek partner to Athens. During that stay, we spent several days on the Greek island of Kos and in the city of Bucharest, Romania. How could I summarize 2018 without mentioning the President of the United States, Donald Trump, who scared me with his notorious tweets and challenges to the system that has guided us since the beginning of our country?
