Well, we all sat down to turkey and ham with all the trimmings on Thanksgiving Day.   As we talked around our tables of 20 adults, three teenagers, and seven younger boys, we all expressed what we were thankful for this year as well as years passed.  Of course, the older family members were grateful for health, peace of mind,...

Jilda and I were almost killed in our car this week. One moment we were talking, laughing, and listening to our favorite song on the car  stereo…and the next moment a pickup truck was passing an oncoming car on a hill and full in our lane.

We had a cookout on the first day of November. It just did not seem right that Halloween fell on Friday night and the following day, the kids were still cranked on high fructose corn syrup and their costumes were barely wrinkled.
