Something to think about: Decade of indulgence

By From page A6 | February 24, 2012


Wendy Schultz has been a biweekly columnist for the Mountain Democrat since 2002 and she lives in the east part of El Dorado County with her devastatingly handsome husband and a devastatingly independent terrier. She continues to hate Brussels sprout but is fond of dark chocolate.

I’ve been writing this column every other week for more than a decade. For some reason, a decade sounds much longer than 10 years. In 260+ columns I’ve written about cars, grandchildren, my dog and my husband. I’ve explored the differences between shopping minutes and football minutes; what dementia is doing to my mother; why men like to burn things up.
