I’m late with this because I had to fly down for my father’s memorial service in the DC area on April 23 (Roy’s Birthday).
Happy Belated Birthday, Roy Orbison!
(April 23, 1936 – December 6, 1988)
In his brief, Roy created timeless songs that we all love and enjoy.

Rest in peace, Reginald Sidney Christian! :-(
I flew down last Thursday to visit Daddy at the nursing home that he has been staying at since December. He was very thin and ill. He was 90 years old. I am glad that I got to see him again a few times this past Easter weekend.
Very sad right now. I am not certain when I will be blogging again because I will not be returning to Boston today. I am using my nephew’s laptop to post this entry. I had plans to write about Autism Acceptance Month for this blog and my pop culture/music posts.
Daddy and Mommie are now both in Heaven. They raised me even though they didn’t know I have Asperger’s Syndrome and Non-Verbal Learning Disorder. I know there are parents with children with Asperger’s/Autism that look at this blog to find advice. Best advice I can give you: Be there for your children and help them along their path.

Sad news! Cynthia Lennon, John’s first wife, has passed away on Wednesday at her home in Spain due to cancer. Julian Lennon was at her bedside when it happened. Cynthia was 75 years old.
She was married to the late John Lennon of the Beatles during the 1960s from 1962 to 1968. They had only one son, Julian, who also became a rock star like his dad.
I felt very sad to hear about this.
Rest in peace, Cynthia!
