  • My faith is restored

    The political season has become such a name calling session on both sides I find my faith in my fellow man waning as each day goes by.

  • BLACKBERRY PICKIN’


    When I was a young boy I would go with my Dad and my Grandpa to pick blackberries. We would always take several empty “Partridge Lard” cans to put the berries in as we picked them. While we were gone “berry pickin,” Mom and Grandma would be washing and cleaning jars and rings and other items in preparation to make delicious blackberry jam and jelly on that  “Warm Morning”, wood burning, cookstove in Grandma’s kitchen.

  • 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?
