this song takes me back...
it says it's from August 1985....
I was 28 years old,
which takes me to the point...
I am co-hosting
a bridal shower at the end of the month
for my step-daughter (28 yrs. old).
Because of the large number of out of town guests,
she wanted to be able to invite her future in-law family to
a shower, here in her hometown.
Makes sense to me.
Because I am just about the only person
who lives here, I have been doing a lot things
that it would be unrealistic to leave until the week before
I have made dozens of decisions....
all of them will effect others...
Sometimes I get a little worried about how they will react.
It's not that I have any trouble making decisions.
I know what I like.
I do not want to "be the boss" of this occasion.
whenever I feel the need to worry,
I think about the lesson Ricky Nelson sings of...
"learned my lesson well,
you see you can't please everyone,
so you gotta please yourself"
