  • Grace Notes

    The other day I found an old, yellowed and brittle newspaper cartoon that I had cut out and saved.
    Dated from 1987, it’s a drawing of a woman sitting in a wing-back chair holding her knees with her feet tucked underneath her.
    The caption reads: “This year’s Irrational Fears Grand Champion worries, from her home in Madison, Wisconsin, about being caught up in a deadly lava flow.”

    It’s often been said that if you don’t like the current weather in Kentucky, just wait a day or two and it’ll change.
    We can have hot and oppressively humid summers and snowy, bone-chillingly cold winters.
    If we’re lucky, we can have several weeks of moderate weather in the spring and fall where, like the Three Little Bears, everything is “just right.”

  • That’s What You Do?

    Recently, I had the opportunity to attend a concert with my wife at Riverbend. These were tickets she purchased in February but the concert, featuring one of my favorite artists, Rod Stewart, did not take place until August.
    What a way-above-average gift Anna shared with me. As we were parking prior to the concert, I noticed a couple walking in front of our car. I then did something I should not have done.

    Pastor Benny Northcutt and four members of his Central Christian Church congregation left on Tuesday afternoon to deliver two trailers of supplies to a Houston church that was ravaged by last week’s Hurricane Harvey.
    Northcutt, Robin Kern, Brian Northcutt, Randy Stumbo and Eric Moore will take turns driving the two trailers during the 18-hour trip to Houston.

    It’s good to back to work! It’s even better to be back to work and being somewhat back to normal.
    I missed a couple of weeks due to some health-related issues.
    Seems I had an adverse reaction to some medication I was taking that resulted in some fluid build-up around my heart and within one lung.
    Essentially, I felt like I was drowning in my own body fluids.
    I now know what it feels like to not be able to breathe normally, and I don’t like it one little bit.
