Ask Dr. Gott 1/7

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a 50-year-old female who is in excellent health. For the past three months or so, my left eyelid has been twitching quite frequently throughout the day.

Kathy Bradley - A mimosa in time

What is this? A mimosa tree? Its slender branches are curved in an arc out over the ditch. Its fingerling leaves are dangling over my head.
