We have come to the end of another month so I thought now would be as good a time as any to go on a written journey back through the days of June.(more…)
Change is a fact of life.
There has been a lot of recent change, from the outbreak of coronavirus a few months ago to Mississippi’s vote to revamp its state flag last Sunday.(more…)
I have attachments to certain candies.(more…)
I ran across an quote some time ago.
It hit me like a ton of bricks, as they say, because the longer I live the more truth I see in it.
The quote has been attributed to a few people through the years.
It appears to belong to author Ian MacLaren, and I can’t find the definitive quote so I’m going to paraphrase.
He said something along the lines of, “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”
I just want to tell you, whatever you are going through, keep going.
Never give up.
You are strong enough.
This post is a response to Sue’s prompt, which is “encourage.”
History has always fascinated me.
I’ve been interested in the Civil War since my family took a vacation to Gettysburg.
I thought I might write down my thoughts on the Confederate battle flag and statues, but I’ve decided to leave them for another day.
Instead, I’d like to go even farther into the past.
Here’s a quick story about how yesterday might influence today and tomorrow.(more…)
When it comes to food, I’m an omnivore who leans to the carnivorous side.
I’ve always tended to save more of the room in my belly for meat and less for the vegetables, to the point a lot of people don’t believe I get enough nourishment of the plant variety.(more…)
I have a confession to make.
I have put today’s post off until it’s too late to write a good one, which means another trip to the archives.
I’ve found the perfect post for Sue’s prompt today, which is “business.”
First, though, I think it might help to tell you a brief backstory.
I grew up on a chicken farm.
I took my share of agricultural classes in high school, during or shortly after the time the story you’re about to read is set.
Naturally, these things led to a foolproof plan to get a goat and get rich.
I got one of those things.
From October, 2017, here’s a story about a business venture gone bad.
Yesterday, I wrote about a noose found in the garage stall Bubba Wallace’s team occupied for the Geico 500 at Talladega.
I should have waited to comment on the situation until the investigation was finished.(more…)
I want to talk about a noose.
Somebody found one in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage at Talladega Superspeedway yesterday.
Whoever put it there wanted to fan the flames of racism and hate, but the plan backfired.(more…)
