Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there in blog land! What would we be without our mothers? Well, motherless, I guess. This year marks 33 years since my own dear mother passed away and I miss her every day. Do your mom and yourself both a favor and be sure to spend some […]

There’s a possibility the timing could not have been better, because the weatherman says that sometime after midnight tonight we are going to get hit with some strong storms and the possibility of isolated tornadoes.

We knew when we went to bed Thursday night that there was a chance of strong thunderstorms and tornadoes hitting our area Friday morning. And sure enough, we were awakened by the siren on our weather radio alerting us to a line of storms coming our way from the west, with the threat of tornadoes. […]

Every parent wants to raise children who become adults they can be proud of. Adults that they can look at and say to themselves with a smile of self-satisfaction, “Yeah, that’s my kid!” Unfortunately, I don’t do that. As much as it hurts me to admit it, I raised two rotten, selfish kids. My son […]
