  • 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.
     But Sunday I had some hope pumped into my feelings and now I feel better. You might think that a person should be inspired after attending church. Well, I went to mass on Saturday and while inspired as always that was not the reason for my boost on Sunday.

    Attention anyone with a closet: Those shoes you no longer want are desperately needed to fight the human tragedy of global poverty.
    That’s the message being delivered by KidCountry, the Children’s ministry of Connersville Christian Church, which has launched a drive to collect 10,000 pairs of shoes to help the poor.  Used and new shoes can be dropped off at Connersville Christian Church.
    Connnersville Christian Church, 2190 Ky. Hwy. 1842 E., will accept shoes between May 1 and June 24.


    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?
