>Today is the 3rd anniversary of my sister’s death from breast cancer. Her real name actually started with a V, so in keeping with the V theme I’ll call her Ms. V. (In case you missed it, I decided to call my oldest sister Virgo Sis.) Anyway, Ms. V., were she alive, would probably remind you women out there to do your self breast exams and get mammograms when necessary. So do so. (Of course, were she alive, she’d also be smoking like a chimney, so do as she says, not as she does. She’d also say that.) [Updated to add: And given that today is also the Great American Smokeout, you should definitely do as she said and not as she did.]
Ms. V’s favorite libation was beer, so tonight I’ll raise a glass and drink a beer to her memory.
Here’s to you, Ms. V. Cheers.
