Dormant ..... Or Dead?
November 13, 2017

Are You Serious!
November 6, 2017

Are you joking! Are you serious! Or, Are you joking? Are you serious? If we are talking with a close friend or someone we’ve known for a long time, we can almost always tell when someone is serious. But sometimes.....well..... there have been a few times over the years, when […] [READ MORE]

Where’s The Keeper?
October 30, 2017

Have you ever paid much attention to how quickly some words, phrases or terminology come and go from everyday use? It wasn’t that long ago when if you had used the word “Facebook” to someone, you would have received a puzzled look, or they may have agreed that someone always […] [READ MORE]

The Orchard
October 23, 2017

I have a small orchard on my little farm. There are several different varieties of apples, cherries, peaches, pears and grapes. It has taken almost 25 years to get them all established to the point where they are right now, yet there is never any promise of a crop of […] [READ MORE]

A Wheelchair, Refi, and Jim!

Imitate WHO?
October 2, 2017

Did you know that there is a lot of detail work that goes into developing an imitation or impersonation of someone? It's so much more than just learning how to "sound" like another person-in fact, sometimes the voice is the easy part. You have to study closely--not just the voice […] [READ MORE]

Immy, Not Jimmy
September 18, 2017

The first several months of 1968 were a very memorable time for me, and again, a change which God used to help mold me into who I am today.The year started with me developing a cough-not a cold-but a deep cough, which became chronic and more severe. I had been […] [READ MORE]

Are You Being Yourself?
September 11, 2017

Did you ever have a job for a short time as an adult, and when you look back, you can clearly see that perhaps the only purpose of that job was to correct a hidden character flaw? Maybe you never did.....But I sure did, and it was a doozy!When I […] [READ MORE]

OPEN 9-1
September 4, 2017

My childhood memories of Labor Day meant that my father's general store would be open for only 4 hours, 9-1. And that also usually meant that my father had some kind of project planned for the afternoon--because when you work 70 hours every week, with no vacations, there is just […] [READ MORE]

Life's Highway

You've Changed
August 21, 2017

This is the time of year that brings back a memory of my favorite high school teacher, Mr Rex Estus. Mr Estus taught English-and so much more. He taught and prepared students for life outside of school, whether you were going on to college or not.My first contact with himas […] [READ MORE]

He's Mean!
August 14, 2017

Sometimes, lessons we learn in our childhood, even if they may seem small at the time, can go on to have a major impact in our lives as adults. That was certainly true in my life, and like so many of my childhood lessons, I learned this very important one […] [READ MORE]

What Will Our Line Be?
August 7, 2017

There was a TV game show in the early days of television called "What's My Line?" It was a very popular and long-running panel show, which had a celebrity panel asking questions of a member from the public, where the panel would try to guess their occupation. The panel could […] [READ MORE]

What Do YOU Say?
July 31, 2017

Did you ever take time to really listen to what people say and "how" they say it? It does take time-something most people don't ever seem to have enough of, but it can be very interesting.I first started learning to listen to what people say while working in my fathers […] [READ MORE]

The Joy Of Seeds
July 10, 2017

Ever since I was about five years old, I've been fascinated with planting seeds and watching those seeds sprout into plants. I've planted both vegetable and flower seeds for many years and I still marvel at the edible crop or beautiful flower that comes from planting that dry, ugly seedThe […] [READ MORE]

July 3, 2017

Eventually, most people discover certain talents or "gifts" they possess in certain areas of their lives. Many times these gifts are in addition to a career choice, but I've seen those gifts weave their way throughout a person's character so much, that many times the gifts end up blending with […] [READ MORE]

Saving Time

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I tend to enjoy the simple things of life. This time of year that might mean listening to all the birds singing their songs on these beautiful spring mornings. Or it might be listening to the bullfrogs on the pond every night; and […] [READ MORE]

May 29, 2017
