  • It’s nearly Thanksgiving, and soon delicious, juicy turkeys will take center stage at many of our holiday meals. It’s so important that these birds are properly cooked and prepared, because we don’t want anyone to get sick from a food-borne illness.

  • It’s nearly Thanksgiving, and soon delicious, juicy turkeys will take center stage at many of our holiday meals. It’s so important that these birds are properly cooked and prepared, because we don’t want anyone to get sick from a food-borne illness.

  • Thanksgiving is a week from today, and I love talking about the ever-popular bird that can be found on dinner tables across our county and the nation—the turkey.

  • Community Thanksgiving Service

    The area churches of Milton will host a Community Thanksgiving Service on 

    Sunday, Nov. 18, at 6 p.m. at the Milton United Methodist 

    Church, 11100 Hwy. 421 N.

    The guest preacher will be Drew Oakley, 

    who grew up in Milton and is the former pastor of Carrollton United Methodist Church.

    As part of the service, area First Responders will be 

    honored and expressions of thanks shared with them. Refreshments and fellowship will follow.

  • Let me tell you a story about prayer. When I was 12, I looked up in the sky to the stars and heaven and asked God for a pony. Within a year my father had gotten a partner and bought a Hack Pony which is a pony that pulls and shows a two-wheel cart. You may have seen this at a fair. Of course, I was excited that my prayer had been answered.

    Over the next few years, I realized God does have a sense of humor. I never got to ride or show the pony. I only got to walk and feed it.

  • We have two cats, Target and Mohawk.

    They’re old and don’t do much of anything except sleep, eat and sneeze all over the back porch window. But we like them.

    Of the two, Mohawk is the easiest and Target is the troublemaker. He thinks biting is a sign of affection as is waking us up at 4:45 a.m. to announce that he’s famished, even though there’s food in his dish. He just likes it to be refreshed -- at his command.
