Cruising to judgment

Cruising to judgment

I have my radio cranked up. I’m singing at the top of my lungs, cruising down the interstate. Then a black pickup whizzes by me, pulls back into the right-hand lane and slows down, like the driver just forgot what he was doing. I hate it when people do that. I holler at him, “Don’t […]

And the Oscar Goes To…

And the Oscar Goes To…

It’s amazing! A handsome fella leaps off a speeding train onto the back of a galloping horse at the very moment the train explodes. But that’s not the amazing part. He’s got one leg in a cast, he’s carrying the wounded train engineer and he’s being pursued by masked gunmen. That’s not the amazing part […]

HUMOR – The tragic tale of Flat Stanley

HUMOR – The tragic tale of Flat Stanley

The following is a true story. Only the facts have been changed to protect the guilty. His name was Stanley…Flat Stanley. He came to us in the mail, which is an unusual way for a visitor to arrive. He was around eight inches tall and paper thin. He was quiet, but he smiled a lot. […]

Check your texts and other lessons from 2016

I made at least one person mad in 2016. There might be more, but one was mad enough to say so. You know how when you’re introduced to someone named Rudolf, you’re tempted to say, “You do have a very shiny nose.” Or when you meet someone named McDonald, you’re overcome with the urge to […]

When it’s too late for the perfect gift

When it’s too late for the perfect gift

Aah, the perfect gift. You’re loved one will cherish it for years to come. They’ll tell everyone they know about it. And they’ll think of you fondly every time they use it, which you hope will make up for the way they think of you the rest of the time. But time is running out. […]

Holiday greetings to you and yours! Where’s my gift?

Holiday greetings to you and yours! Where’s my gift?

I hope 2016 has been good to you. It began in a courtroom for me, which I think you’d agree, is no way to start a new year, especially if you’re the defendant. Fortunately, I wasn’t. It was still stressful though. I was already running late when I arrived at the courthouse for jury duty […]

HUMOR – Getting back into gear

HUMOR – Getting back into gear

You may not believe this, but I’m part of an elite group. Only about seven percent of Americans know how to drive a stick shift, and I happen to be one of them. If you aren’t and you want to be, you’ll have a tough time finding a vehicle to learn on, since only around […]

HUMOR – Remember, You’ve Always Been Forgetful

HUMOR – Remember, You’ve Always Been Forgetful

A lot of older people blame their age when they forget something. I think they’re forgetting how much they forgot when they were younger. If there’s one thing I remember, it’s that I’ve always been forgetful. And I blame it on the same thing I’ve always blamed it on: I don’t pay attention. It’s hard […]

Dreaming away the miles

Dreaming away the miles

I’d like you to meet my driver. Oops. Did I say my driver? I meant, I’d like you meet my husband. It’s an easy mistake; if we’re going anywhere, he’s almost always driving. And he’s very good at it. At least I think he is. I’m usually asleep when he’s driving, so I could be […]

HUMOR – Test anxiety at the eye doctor’s

HUMOR – Test anxiety at the eye doctor’s

Some people inherit money. Some people inherit land. I inherited glaucoma. Of all the ways I could have taken after my amazing mom, that’s the one I picked. Or rather, the one that picked me. The bad thing about having glaucoma—besides that it can make you blind—is that you have to go to the eye […]
