A Word

It should come as no surprise that I’m a big fan of words – if I wasn’t, you certainly wouldn’t be reading mine. I like descriptive words, ones that really tell you how someone feels. For that reason you’ll never have to apologize for letting any of those swear words slip in front of me. I like those words…

Dear Dog Sitter,

Last weekend we took a much needed trip to the cities to visit a friend. It was long overdue and as always it’s a treat to get out of the country. I’d say, get out of town, but we live in Vergas so that wouldn’t make much sense. Anyway, when you have a dog it’s…

People Noticer

I think we can all agree that I’m a people watcher. I’m not a creepy, stare bear kind of people watcher but a people noticer. My past columns and blogs prove that whether it’s the grocery store, a mechanic shop or a simple walk down the street – I have a tendency of picking up on things. My assumptions of these people…

I shouldn’t use the word “adult” because in my opinion, they’d still be teenagers had they not hurled themselves into adulthood.

Rollin’ Down Highway 41

This will hold little significance to anyone reading but for me it’s the type of thing to raise goose bumps. I’m working on a project that has me reviewing the very beginning of my blog. In the midst of reflection it occurred to me that I didn’t put a lot of thought into the name of my blog;…

We Would’ve Run

Last weekend I made my way back home to my Mom and Dad’s. I get a little sentimental driving through Ulen and always with a wandering eye to notice any changes since my last visit. I’d just made it over the railroad tracks and I see two little boys making their way down the sidewalk with…
