    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.

  • 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.

    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?
