The sun is here… but where is Spring?

Today marks the third Friday in a row that the Garden Girls have sadly said, "Not yet!" to my query about doing some spring flower planting.  "The ground is still frosty in the morning," they said.  "Maybe next week." I feel like a kid waiting for...

Who goes around comes around?

Tonight when I went to close up the church, I took a minute to check the guest register.  It was such an uninviting day that I wondered...  But, yes!  We'd had at least two visitors today and two yesterday -- perhaps more, for everyone doesn't sign...

It’s all about perspective!

Truth to tell... I completely missed this fabulous sunset sky last night.  My neighbor, Cyndy, often walks her dog along the bayside path in front of our house and last evening, this was her spectacular reward!  And mine, too -- vicariously.  I was...

One time, not so long ago, I was fired…

I've spent the last hour or so reading all the "school news" in the Chinook Observer -- way more than I really care about and even more that I don't fully understand.  For one thing, back in the dark ages (from 1961 to 2001) I don't think either of...
