  • When my youngest brother was little he loved to be tossed into the swimming pool.
    We’d pick him up and throw him underhand, like lobbing a softball, into the deep end and watch him sink and then pop his head up from the surface, look for the nearest side of the pool and swim toward it.

  • The farm looks like a storm hit recently but it’s really just my husband’s new deer deterrent technique.  
    It seems to be working.
    In the past we have forgone the Irish Spring soap, human hair and coyote urine for more reliable barriers.  Tomato cages, tobacco stakes, wire, spiral plastic trunk wrap, and, yes, an occasional arrangement of lawn chairs have created distance between rutting and browsing deer.  
    This year does not seem as bad as year’s past.

  • One day at the library, a book fell off a shelf and hit a boy named Milo Crinkley on the head.
    The title, “Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days,” was just what he needed.
    Wanting more than anything to be perfect, Milo checked the book out and set out to do everything the author, Dr. K. Pinkerson Silverfish, prescribed.
    So begins the 1982 children’s book “Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days” by Stephen Manes.

  • If there was anything that I came to understand more profoundly this year it would have to be the power of instinct: mine, our animals and the forces of ideologies of which I agree and disagree.
    I reread my year end column from 2011, which reminded me of where I was 12 months ago; it helps me better appreciate where I am today.
    It seems we didn’t do too badly, after all, and it’s all because both Andy and I recognize the power of instinct.
