Late Night Musings With John

Throughout his life, which included more than 20 years in the Air Force, John Orlando has been an astute observer of life. From the inane to the most profound, little escapes his attention. Retirement allows him the time to combine his writing skills with his observations and record them as entries in his blog. While he enjoys life on the beach and the golf course, he still observes and reflects on the past and present, and continues to capture his take on life. Learn more about John at latenightmusings.growingbolder.com.
 
 
  Mary T. Wagner: Running With Stilettos

Mary T. Wagner is a former newspaper and magazine journalist who changed careers at 40 by going to law school and becoming a criminal prosecutor.
