My brother snapped this photo while driving through Slinger, Wisconsin. (Population 5,068) Because of the energy spent on this front yard display, I felt it was my civic duty to post this fiftieth birthday greeting to gain more exposure.

No thanks needed. I’m always happy to spread the BIRTHDAY CHEER!


About Mitzi McColley Sorensen

Mitzi McColley Sorensen grew up surrounded by the Black Hills in Hot Springs, South Dakota. Her father was a second generation funeral director. Death was as much a part of her everyday life as breathing. She attributes her quirky sense of humor, viewing life as a gift, and placing family first to her upbringing. After attending Northern State College in South Dakota, she headed west with her husband to live with her beloved grandmother who was suffering with Alzheimer’s. They stayed in California where they raised three daughters and a son. For the past twenty-eight years, Petaluma, California has been her home where rolling vineyards replaced the majestic views of Mt. Rushmore. Working her way up the ranks in a pharmacy, Mitzi learned that the customer was always right, the benefits of most drugs outweighed the possible side effects, and that her male clients mellowed with age. Mitzi befriended an individual that experienced synesthesia in her everyday life. Although the main character in THE TASTE OF ORANGE is fictional, her symptoms mirror that of her friend’s. Retired after twenty plus years, Mitzi enjoys writing novels, traveling, reading, welding, and golfing with her husband, Mark, even though she yells fore more often than scoring a par four. She keeps in shape by catching lizards and snakes with her nine grandsons and three granddaughters.

  1. Thanks for the nod on my post today.

    Sounds like you have good view on the foibles of life, Mitzi. I a good author friend of mine who writes under the name, Brynn Chapman, is very familiar with the subject of synesthesia. She has a fiction tale about the Salem witch fever on Amazon, the first of a series in which the character suffers from this affliction. “Where Bluebirds Fly”, and it’s free on Kindle … today.
