Scrooge was made, not born

Ah, ‘tis the season. I have never figured out if it is Hallowistmas or Christoween. It’s the time when you can start stocking up on Halloween stuff and buy an artificial Christmas tree and lights in the same store, on the same day.

I choose to stand, but…

Okay, I’m going to mention this once, get it out of the way, and hope that’s the end of it. But at the same time, I feel the need to say something. I begin with two statements:

My favorite dish

As anyone who has looked at my figure knows, food is my favorite dish. Well, most food, anyway. Because of this, I sometimes find myself musing on the subject.

I’m nuts for pecans, alas

I was barely aware of the noise the first time, but it got my attention. Then it happened again: Whack. Not long after was another whack. Then a klonk. It was coming from out back.

It’s school time again

“Another school year has begun.” I’ve noticed that over the years, the meaning of that simple sentence has gone through some dramatic changes – at least for me. Whether those changes are good, is, well, open to interpretation.

Another show, done

As some may know, I was in a Forrest City Little Theatre production over the weekend. I sang, I acted a little bit. I did not dance.

My personal dust bowl

I hope I’m not jinxing myself by mentioning this. And I don’t want to get my hopes too high, but something seems to be developing.

Down by the Old Mill…

There was this wedding over the weekend that I had to attend. This was the second of two young women. I consider them the daughters I never had. Man, did I work hard to get them grown and married.
