  • State of my marriage address

    Note: On May 3, my husband and I will be married 41 years. I’ve adapted this column from 2009.
    While out for our semi-regular Sunday drive, as I flipped through the radio stations I asked my husband what kind of music he liked.
    That’s the kind of questions you ask on a first date, not after 41 years of marriage!
    I’m not sure what that says about the state of our marriage. You don’t even know what kind of music your husband likes?

    OUTREACH MINISTRY

  • People need to be able to say ‘You too?’

    A few months ago, the one I call my uncle dad was out shooting a gun and the noise did something to his hearing so now people sound like Donald Duck to him.
    Since then he’s had a lot of people who are also hard of hearing commiserate with him.
    He says it’s comforting to be able to say, “You too?” However, he really, really, really wants his hearing back.

  • A God I can yell at

    Every Saturday morning I go to the Panera near my house and write my column for the following week.
    I order an egg white and cheese breakfast sandwich and a small coffee and sit at the table that faces the big window so I can watch the traffic go by.
    I spread my stuff out, my notepad and pen and laptop and assorted notes. Most weeks I already know what I’m going to write about, but not always.

  • Spring cleaning and random thoughts

    The other day my husband opened up both of the closet doors in our bedroom and pointed out that my stuff has progressively crept into his closet and that I should do something about it.
    “Like throw your stuff out to make more room for mine?” I asked.
    Um, the answer to that would be no.
    So, I got a plastic bag and started filling it with clothes I no longer wear, and then I started going through old file folders filled with notes and beginnings of columns. That always prompts a bits and pieces column, like today’s. So, here goes:

  • 8 Your Fine; 9 Your Mine!

    I have been driving for many years and for the longest time the premise was you could speed to a certain point before you would be pulled over. Hence, 8-over your fine; 9-over your mine (ticketed).
    It’s worked pretty well during those years I lived by it, but do not espouse it today.
    WARNING: DO NOT test this with law enforcement.
