Out and About – Week of November 12th

My father reminded me more than once that if you don’t learn something new every day, you’ve missed out on a learning experience. I’m not sure if I accomplish this, but at least once a week, I learn a new word. The word this week is “Aphorism”. Aphorism is a statement of truth or opinion expressed in a concise and …

Out and About – Week of November 5th

Many years ago, I was lucky to have a dog that could actually talk. We spent a lot of time together walking and playing in the neighborhood park or in our own backyard.

Out and About – Week of October 22nd

Dining out, especially for breakfast, continues to give me material for this column. I especially enjoy having breakfast at a small quaint cafe where they usually have regular diners who gather there every morning to discuss the world’s problems. Some of these eateries have unique little signs placed on the wall with hopes that the customers get a chuckle or …
