The Letdown

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Tuesday, September 29, 2015,
I sit here thinking about all the wonderful things poor Sara did in her lifetime and it makes me sad to think she's gone. As a teacher she affected the lives of scores of students. As a Mother she shaped the life of two boys and set them on the path to success. As a friend to many she brightened up their day with her wit and smile.

I've never been good at making enticing opening sentences for this blog and this week won't be any different. I'll just get right to the point. My big scooter is sitting in the garage wounded with a broken starter motor. I had taken it to Johnson City to see Sara in the hospital and instead of the usual hesitant start the engine had begun doing it spun hardly at all. With a little finagling of the button it finally fired up but I was sure it was shot. Sure enough after I got home I shut it o...
