To cap off the school year, my daughter Ellen’s fourth grade class created a living wax museum of great leaders. Out of the list of dozens of names, my little redhead chose Lucille Ball. Why did she chose Lucille Ball? Because she was a redhead. (You’ve gotta love 10-year-old logic.) Things started...
This Sunday will be Father’s Day, a time that dads of all types will be celebrating with their families. There’s what we consider the traditional family, a dad and a mom, there are the single dads out there who are raising a child by themselves. Others are dads by marriage, even though technically...
For the most part, May and June are big months for a lot of people. Mother’s Day and Memorial Day are in May. Father’s Day is in June. If you’re a high school or college student walking across the stage to receive a diploma, it’s probably going to happen during these two months. And if you fall in...
I think many of us sometimes feel we have the weight of our own part of the world on our shoulders. For some of us it’s at work, whether you’re a manager of a certain department, or you own a business and are dealing with the issues of having to get supplies or products to sell. Others have to deal...
My daughter Ellen’s fourth grade class just finished memorizing all 50 states and their capitals. We studied those darn things for weeks, using maps and homemade flashcards. We’d quiz each other on road trips and while preparing dinner. What’s the capital of Maine? Alaska? Oklahoma? Where’s Carson...
Are we sure that the month of April knows that April Fools Day has come and gone? I think most people will understand that reference since this April has been quite cold this year. We did hit the mid 50s and even got into the 60s for just a bit, although it was very brief. I’ll admit I didn’t mind...
I love organization. When I need something and find it where it’s supposed to be, I am a happy camper. When I have to search for something that’s been misplaced, my blood pressure rises and my mood sours. That’s when the swearing starts. Over the weekend, my wife Bonnie was upset because our family...
I’m going to a wedding! Not mine. I have eight months to plan for a niece’s wedding, which happens to fall during one of the busiest travel times of the year. The wedding also happens to be in another state. If I drive it’s about 16 to 18 hours. If I fly, there are headaches in the aspect of how...
Every once in a while there is something posted on Facebook which I can’t go without reprinting in my column space. There was a group of us sitting around talking about the “old days” and when I say that I mean the 1970s and 1980s. Those years don’t seem that long ago, until you actually do the...
I rarely see a few of my neighbors, but for some reason, when I do encounter those certain few, I look like a crazy woman. Take last Sunday, for example. One of those rare neighbors walked down his driveway just as I was carrying a big, dead bloody opossum down the road on the top of a board with...
