Hold That Thought

 April 9, 2014

It's spring, when all thoughts turn to...everything. I think this is my problem. I know I'm not alone, either. There are the three questions that keep coming up. If I'm not thinking one of them, someone is asking one of them out loud within my earshot.

Luck Be a Melee

 March 12, 2014

Black and Blue Holiday

 December 18, 2013

This year Thanksgiving turns out to be black and blue. For my family this is different from other years but ends up being quite nice all the same. For others it's not nice at all.Mom's stove kicks the bucket, so there's no...

The Art of Hibernation

 December 4, 2013

A friend of mine makes the kind of confession to me that one can only make while downing a pint in low barroom light.She leans forward and says, "Today I spent the entire day in bed. I didn't do anything."

Let's Talk Turkey

Thanksgiving is approaching, so it's time to be obsessed with turkey. We shoreline folks really get into Thanksgiving. For weeks before the holiday, newspapers are stuffed with ads from area supermarkets for turkeys and all of the meal items that go with...
