Exciting news indeed. In third grade I came in second in the spelling bee. In high school speech contests I once got a third place, but nothing better. In 1976 I was named Teacher of the Year by an alternative, unsanctioned high school newspaper.
A couple years ago I won a Bronze Medal for Talent and later I was a finalist in the Sarton Writing Contest.
Today I actually won. Best in my category as they would say at horse races and county fairs. Everything changes.
My husband, a major player in Never Too Late, says, “You don’t lose until you quit trying.” Good statement!
Here we are, in all our craziness, at the Bay Area Book Festival held in Berkeley on April 28 and 29, 2018. Lots of people. Lots of conversations. Lots of cold, cold weather.
In the photo the water is mine, the popcorn is his, and the table is missing, so let’s try this again.
The one on the left looks better to me. >>>>
Bottom line: This book fair was a great place to network, and it was wonderful to have Richard there. He’s a first-class salesman.
And, to give you a sample of something from the book, here’s the ad he wrote that attracted me:
1944 classic roadster with many miles left!
Motor humms, transmission smooth and and all the gears work!
Only two previous owners, very great women.
Two tone, white with a gray top.
Seeking a new woman owner who knows how to drive a classic!
PS, This car is at church every Sunday so if that is a problem with
you this car is not for you.
Obviously, he was shopping for his third wife. Before our first
date, he asked if I would ever marry if I fell in love.
Wondering how I responded? You can find it at the start of Chapter 2 (page 9) of

NEVER TOO LATE:
A 62-year-old goes from Wannabe to Wife
by B. Lynn Goodwin
How does a 62-year-old woman who’s never been married find happiness with a two-time widower seeking his third wife on . . . Craigslist!? Does she throw caution to the wind and relinquish her freedom, or should she take a crash course in compromises?
Author B. Lynn Goodwin tells all and more in NEVER TOO LATE. How she was attracted to Richard’s clear expectations, his honesty, and his incredible openness. She’d never met anyone like him.
Would she recognize love if it knocked on her heart? And could an educated woman be happy moving into a blue-collar world?
Whether you’ve been single forever, are trapped in an unhappy marriage, or you’re simply curious, you’ll find secrets to a happy marriage in NEVER TOO LATE.
