    ST. EDWARD CHURCH

  • I have always loved the fall season. Fall colors are among my first recollections. I am no scientist; but, I appreciate discovery. I went on a treasure hunt via the internet recently and read about trees changing color. I wanted to learn about what transpires to produce this transformation. I found that in the summer photosynthesis produces chlorophyll enabling  leaves in trees to become green. In the fall, days become shorter and colder. The chlorophyll production decreases and the leaves display their “true” colors.

  • When I first started writing professionally, I mostly wrote humor stories for Christian magazines.
    It was fun, and I often cracked myself up. But it was also hard work. With humor, you have to get the rhythm right. You have to choose your words carefully and economically.
    And you have to know the ending, the punchline, often before you write your opening line.
    With humor, you write to the punchline. It’s all about how you end.

  • This weekend marks open gun season in Kentucky and deer hunters will hit the woods in their orange safety gear looking for the epitome of procuring local food.
    I am not a hunter but I certainly respect hunters who lawfully hunt for food. While some are hunting this time of the year, others are scrambling to protect their trees from the rut.
    I saw a dead buck on the roadside the other day that looked at least like a six-pointer; he would be the kind of rutting culprit if you find some of your trees torn up!
