  • I remember it like it was yesterday. I was 10 years old. I came home from school. My dad was home. Weird. He followed me into my bedroom sat on the bed and asked me to sit beside him. He then told me that my grandfather, his dad, had died of a massive heart attack.
    We had just spent a week with him and Grandma at Thanksgiving. I had gone hunting with him that week. But now he was gone. I would never see him again. I was devastated by this, my first experience with death.

  • ...It’s an NBC drama on Tuesday nights that follows the Pearson family: three siblings -- Kevin, Kate and Randall -- and their parents, Jack and Rebecca.

    After Randall, born on the same day, is left at a fire station and brought to the hospital by a fireman, Jack and Rebecca adopt him and raise all three kids as the “Big Three.”

  • Have you ever played cowboys and Indians, or pretended to be the game winning athlete? Imagination is a key to a happy childhood.  
    Adults play games like that as well. We relive our lives through our children – wanting for them what we wished for ourselves, e.g. dads at the ball field, moms at the bridal shop. A dangerous game we adults play is “What if I only had…?” We try to relive our lives.   

  • There’s always something new to click on Facebook, and recently it’s been “What Has 2016 Taught You?”
    According to Facebook, here’s what I’ve supposedly learned this past year:
    “Forgiving is easy, it’s trusting them again that’s hard.”
    The folks or whoever/whatever at Facebook added, “The past year has changed you completely. You’ve seen your life from a completely different angle and this led you to new experiences.”
    Hmmm.

  • I have learned to be discerning when it comes to catalog shopping.  
    I steer clear of outrageous or cheap deals. I prefer the specialty catalog where expertise reigns, providing us with both a good product and the information to grow it well.  
    I shop locally as much as I can but for some crops we must turn to the catalogs that are filling the mailbox this time of the year.
