The "Game of the Century" is always a bittersweet memory for me. Mike had several retired farmer uncles nearby who were happy to come over and help during planting/ harvesting. One of these was Uncle Henry, who seemed to be always available when we needed him. Aunt Laura often babysat Ann and they...
I know, I know, it was Fordham.  But it was a fun game to watch, after the first quarter, anyway. And Coach Frost said as much to the press after it. And, Vince Lombardi played there; who knew?  Hope they can do it again this Saturday. And, the volleyball team had some wins, also, even though they...
I can assure you I'm not trying to become a bionic woman; but now, I have my left arm in a sling after having a reverse shoulder replacement a couple of weeks ago.   Again, x-rays showed no cartilage and the surgeon told Kay it was “icky”. Not sure what he meant by that, but take it to say...
Some farm leases are not written but are verbal or "handshake" agreements. Because nothing is in writing, the parties may have different recollections of their agreement, making lease disputes more difficult to resolve. The most common legal issue associated with verbal farm leases is how a lease...
When a good friend/fraternity brother died at an early age of complications of diabetes, a good number of “brothers” made the trip to rural Madison for the service. When we all gathered in his home after the burial, his mother commented, “Darrel would have so enjoyed this.”  I've always remembered...
Last Thursday, Aug. 5, was the one year anniversary of Mike's death. I was surprised at how many folks made note of it.  Every week for some time, I had received a Bible verse and its promise on some colored note paper in a colored envelope. They were from a friend at church and I had got in the...
August! I can't believe it. And we had welcome cooler weather to usher it in. In fact, as I did a few laps around the cul de sac in the evening, it even felt a bit like Fall. I see by the forecast, though, we are still expecting hot weather later.  I have not watched the Olympics as much as I...
You know, I haven't talked football for a long time. I bet you missed it!!   In the early days of this weekly spiel, I mentioned it a lot, and received a wonderful letter of appreciation from a Wayne county boy on a big ship in the Atlantic. I seriously doubt that any military folks from our part...
In all fairness to the kids who do NOT give their teachers grief, and do not act as if they are entitled, I bring you Kieran, from Alabama.  Kieran is even now at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, as an incoming freshman there.  Naturally, one does not wear one's  hair long when in the Air...
At Book Club last week, we got on the very subject I ranted about in this space; all agreeing many young people today seem entitled. Then, one neighbor reminded us we were sounding like every past generation of “the old folks” despairing of the young'uns. Well, yes, we agreed, we did, but things...
