  • Which type of tree reflects your holiday, live or fresh cut?

    It is hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us!
    I have family visiting for Christmas so this means a bigger tree than normal; if you are going to travel to come see us, this is the least I can do. Plus, it is fun to find the “perfect” tree that fits your space and holds precious ornaments with style.
    So, which type of tree reflects your holiday? Do you get a fresh-cut, artificial, balled-and-burlapped? Or do you just go out-of-town and let someone else do the decorating?

    Hmm, that is before I heard lots of painful recitations of ruined corn patches and gardens and how resourceful folks have to be to protect their harvest.
    Well, OK. I learned a good lesson, but there are extenuating circumstances.

  • The Water Street Monsters
  • Viewpoint

    Forty years ago last August, Ernie and I were married. A day later, we were in the beautiful Smoky Mountains at Gatlinburg.
    I had never been, at least I don’t remember ever having been there. And I truly think I would have remembered the Elvis Museum.
    There wasn’t much more than that in Pigeon Forge at the time ... perhaps the Muscle Car Museum. However, we were on the downhill of the muscle car era. I’m not so sure there would have been a museum yet.
