Hoping

Okay, is anyone else so ready for spring they could almost burst?  I am!  When I was watching the weather the other day, the meteorologist said that “meteorological spring” starts March 1st.  Why do they say things like that?  Any seasoned Hoosier knows that March can be as snowy as February.  I remember the worst…

1978

Recently I’ve made friends with a person who is rather new to Grant County.  She and her husband were IWU students who became a part of our church and have decided to settle here.  I couldn’t be more pleased.  What a high compliment to my home-sweet-home, and all Grant County natives.  This is a great…

Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled Eggs

Help.  Track #13.  “Scrambled Eggs.  Oh, my baby how I love your legs.  Not as much as I love scrambled eggs.

Recalculating

One thing about blizzards is that you get to do things that you never do when your life is baptized by busy.  Like make French toast.  At least I think that’s why people rush to the store to buy milk, eggs, and bread.  We didn’t partake, but I did indulge in a little modern-day TV…

Home

I just bought a house.  My plan was to move in the first weekend in December. I’m not in it yet. The transition from renter to homeowner has been an eye-opening one.  So far I’ve had a gas leak and had to have the Vectren man come out and take care of it.  (BTW, he…
