If I were a soda, I’d be root beer

Tuesday, June 17, 2014 11:00 a.m.

Thanks to Facebook, I know now which Brady Bunch kid I’d be, what kind of dog I am and how long I would survive a zombie apocalypse. (Jan, beagle and forever—my husband is handy with a shotgun, and I swing a mean cast iron skillet. I think we’d be OK. You thought I was going to say I don’t believe in zombies, didn’t you?)

More thoughts on Goose Creek

You can’t make this stuff up

Thursday, May 29, 2014 11:50 p.m.

A look at some news—recent and not so much—that made me shake my head…

Housework? No thanks

Thursday, May 22, 2014 9:51 p.m.

It was a very good chair

Thursday, May 22, 2014 9:51 p.m.

Thoughts on Goose Creek business

I love you, Mother UPDATED

Wednesday, May 14, 2014 9:23 a.m.

My mother had a small head. I know that because I’m wearing her floppy sun hat. I’m wearing her floppy sun hat because she left it to me when she died on April 25.

Thoughts on the voting process

Wednesday, May 14, 2014 9:13 a.m.

On June 10, we will have state primary elections for both Democrats and Republicans; this we know for sure. What we don’t know, and what many are worried about, is will the actual voting and election process work honestly and smoothly the way its suppose to.

MacGyver would be proud

I have this friend.

A steak through the heart ...

Saturday, May 3, 2014 2:21 p.m.

If you were to look for parallels across history to compare with the next 600 words you are about to read, upon reflection I’ve come up with one: Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.

Fun with ‘Insanity’

Saturday, May 3, 2014 2:22 p.m.

I like to think of myself as a dedicated runner. I also like to think of myself as a six-foot tall redheaded showgirl, so we can see where this is going.

Hug your librarian!

Thursday, April 17, 2014 4:18 p.m.

It’s National Library Week! Go kiss a librarian. Or not--s/he might not appreciate being smooched at the circulation desk. Maybe we should take them cupcakes. Or hug it out. Or both.

Big man. Small car.

Sunday, April 13, 2014 12:19 a.m.

I am a big man.

Patriotism never more important UPDATED

Thursday, April 10, 2014 12:01 a.m.

It’s often noted that today’s young people don’t have a strong sense of patriotism like their parents and grandparents did.

Fire ants still the worst UPDATED

Thursday, April 10, 2014 12:01 a.m.

Did you hear about the “crazy ants” infesting Texas, Louisiana, Florida and Mississippi?

Well that was embarrassing!

Thursday, March 27, 2014 12:01 a.m.

There are two things I fear: 1) Dying and 2) Being embarrassed. And there’s a difference between looking foolish and feeling stupid.

Headache remedies from Julie

Thursday, March 13, 2014 12:01 a.m.

I have a headache. I never get headaches; in 53 years I’ve had maybe three. I just don’t get them. (My husband says I give them—hardeeharhar!)

‘Lieutenant Dan! You got legs!’

Thursday, March 6, 2014 12:01 a.m.

One day I’m going to write a book called “Things My Husband Says.” Chapters will be divided by topics, such as “Food,” “Wife’s Hair,” “Forrest Gump,” and “Best Friends” (which is not about me.)

Can you repeat that?

Thursday, February 13, 2014 12:01 a.m.

If you’re around me for longer than 15 minutes, you’ll notice I say “What?” a lot. Also, “Excuse me?” or “Pardon” or “Huh?” As a last resort I say, “I wear two hearing aids and it sounds like you’re asking me to feed your hamster in Fuji.”
