  • Let’s talk turkey. After all, it is only one week until Thanksgiving and we all should have started on our menu plans by now.

    We are heading to Indianapolis for a wonderful family Thanksgiving. A family tradition that has continued on; mostly we are just cousins, but we have kept it going since our parents have all passed on.  I think this is a real tribute to what our grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles instilled in us; keep it going. Now that our own families are growing, it’s a little harder, but we do the best we can.

  • A few weeks ago my youngest daughter came home for a quick visit on her way to a wedding and a football game.
    At 27, she has long outgrown her terrible teen years, although she still has a bit of an edge. That’s just Laura.
    When she was 14 or 15 she was into a grunge stage, very Kurt Cobain-Pearl Jam-Stone Temple Pilots. She’d wear pants big enough to fit two sumo wrestlers and heavy, bump-toe combat boots — to church. Hey, I was just glad she came to church back then and I wasn’t about to quibble over what she wore.
