Making trig laugh

Note: I mopped up the tears and went grocery shopping yesterday. Winn Dixie, of course. When I finished loading my car, I heard a cheery baritone voice behind me say, "I'll just take that cart, thank you." I turned around and the man standing there could've been trig's twin. I froze. And two big tears rolled down my face. Alarmed, the man said, "Are you ok?"

"Now I am."

Giggling gods

People make plans and the gods laugh...

A year ago I told my boss I'd retire after the summer programs were done. I offered to volunteer enough hours to keep my beloved arts camps and apprenticeship programs alive. 

I knew the Rockford Arts Council couldn't afford me anymore. Donations and corporate contributions were down in a local economy that has never recovered from any recession. And we weren't getting our operating grant from the state any time soon. Illinois is in a…

Takes One to Know One - Happy Fathers Day, Terry

I've been living in Bastrop, TX since September 2016 and I haven't written much about that experience.  It's pretty routine in that everyday I get up sometime before 8:00 am have my coffee and smoke my cigarette out on the porch and then check out what's going on at Our Salon.  Sometime between 10:00 in the morning and 3:00 in the afternoon I get in the car and take my older brother Bill out for breakfast or lunch and make sure he takes his pills.…
