Plugged And Stuffed

We were on the go for much of yesterday, running errands and getting things done. Our first stop was at the post office in Gordo to pick up an Amazon package that they wouldn’t deliver because it was too heavy, at about 40 pounds. The lady at the post office said that Amazon is shipping […]

Note: I posted this Mother’s Day blog a few years ago, and I hope you will enjoy reading it again.  Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Moms out there! I hope you have a wonderful day surrounded by lots of love. If you have not called your Mom to tell her you love her […]

April is a month full of birthdays for our family. I don’t know what everybody was doing in every summer, but they darn sure were busy! Sunday was my late brother Jack’s birthday and Tuesday was my late sister Janet’s birthday. They have both been gone for many years. Today is our son-in-law Kenny’s birthday. […]

My brother Jack was the oldest of my seven siblings and I am the youngest, so we were never close like you would expect brothers to be. I think that was because he had a son almost three years older than me, so I was just another kid. Jack was a big man who sometimes […]

My heart is heavy with the news that my friend and fellow author George Wier has lost his battle with esophageal cancer. The world is a darker place without George’s sense of humor and many talents in it. Though we lived in different parts of the country, and most of our contact over the years […]

Note: We were tied up on a project all day yesterday, then had guests for dinner, so there was no time for writing. This is a repost of a blog from 2016 because I still think laughter is the best medicine.  They say that laughter is the best medicine. If that’s true, I’m pretty sure […]

My granddaughter Haley Robinson made this old man proud yesterday when she registered to vote. This will be her first time being old enough to do so, and I am glad to see that the younger generation is willing to be involved in the future of our country. Us old dinosaurs may be nearing the […]

Depending on which side you take in the age-old controversy about heredity versus environment, we are all either genetically inclined to become who we are, or we adapt to our surroundings as we grow. There are plenty of arguments for and against both claims. We’ve all seen kids that came from good families go bad […]

Note: My friend Donna McNicol mentioned this incident in a Facebook post a couple of weeks ago, and ever since people have been asking me for the whole story. So here is a repeat of my blog post about it from April, 2016. They say that laughter is the best medicine. If that’s true, I’m […]

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Moms out there! I hope you have a wonderful day, surrounded by lots of love. If you have not called your Mom to tell her you love her yet today, go do it right now. She’s waiting to hear from you. My own dear mother has been gone […]

What has happened to the world? Have we all become a population of total wimps? Every day I end my blog with a thought for the day. Yesterday’s was “You can tell a lot about a woman from her hands. For instance, if they are wrapped tightly around your throat, she’s probably upset about something.” […]

They say that laughter is the best medicine. If that’s true, I’m pretty sure that I’m going to live forever. I learned a long time ago that a sense of humor will get you through just about anything, and one of the best things you can possess is the ability to laugh at yourself. I […]
