A thought provoking question

I had a partial day off on Monday, and when I wasn’t cleaning up fallen tree limbs out of the road by my house or catching up on laundry, I spent a few hours visiting with two friends I’d not really had an opportunity to catch up with in a while. Such is the life […]

Casting out the (dare)devils

Every great fisherman, and probably every bad one too, has an epic tale to tell. The struggle, the fight, the great war between man and beast is waged in ponds, lakes, streams and oceans around the world. A battle of wits played with little more than a string, a pole, a worm and a prayer. […]

At least it wasn’t anthrax

  I can’t imagine that anyone reading this has never made a mistake in their life. Some little, some major, but I am willing to bet each of us have made a boo-boo at one point or another. Yesterday was busy in the newsroom (as it tends to be) when a news alert came across […]

Things we do for love

Love will sometimes make us do crazy things. Other times it will make you remember what is important. And in some cases, it will make you change your plans to accommodate it. I was out at my friend’s farm a couple of weeks ago when I checked my phone to find two missed calls from […]

Out There in T.V. Land

I never really watched Seinfeld. In the 1990s I was in high school and was way too caught up in 90210 and Melrose Place to make that leap. But, apparently, if I am so inclined to binge watch it, I can on Hulu (assuming I’ll subscribe to Hulu). Hulu purchased the exclusive rights to the […]

I do love a good intrigue

Was there another shooter on the Grassy Knoll? Are there really aliens at Roswell? Are the Illuminati primed to take over the world with their New World Order? I don’t have answers to any of these, but I do love a good conspiracy theory. Some are really far-fetched, like the creation of humanzees. (Seriously, look […]

Keep on keepin’ on

It’s been a busy couple of weeks, and yet I feel like I got very little accomplished. I did manage to get my tomato and marigold seeds started indoors. The weekend before Easter, I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off. On one side of my kitchen, I was filling seed […]

Not in Kentucky, but still in the Big Blue Nation

It’s March Madness time again. I can’t say I watch sports on any regular basis. I can’t even claim WWE since that’s not sports — that’s sports entertainment — so it doesn’t count. But when this time of year rolls around, I can’t help but feel the twinge of blue blood begin to flow in […]

Spring forward, fall back

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Sorry, had to get that out. Man, has this weather not been amazing? It has been great feeling the warm sun and watching my yard go from a frozen tundra to a massive mud pit. I can’t say my furry child Missy is as happy about the climate change. While the sun is […]

Bread and milk anyone?

Well, my little brother and the kids got a good dose of what an Iowa winter feels like last week in their own backyard. Much of my home state of Kentucky was hit by inches upon inches of the white four-lettered “s” word we pretty much take in stride around here. I tease him mercilessly […]
