Out and About – Week of April 18th

I’m at that age when my list of goals isn’t all that large. I’ve done about as much damage as I can and have tried to live a life that my parents would be proud of. I still strive to be a better person than I was ten years ago, and I do that by surrounding myself with good people. …

Out and About – Week of April 11th

Beware, for the Tax Man cometh. If you haven’t met with your tax person yet, you might want to make arrangements soon. I applaud those who have submitted their tax information and paid what they owed. I also envy those who are getting money back. The latter is getting harder to do every year. I try my best to let …

Out and About – Week of April 4th

Welcome to the month of April. We’ll have to see if “April showers will bring May flowers”. My how time flies. This month marks ten years that I’ve been putting this column together.

Here we are in the middle of March and my snow blower still has some gasoline in its tank. I’m at a loss as to what I should do. Should I run the snow blower out of gas and hope that we don’t get another storm, or should I hold off for a few more days? Suddenly I regain my …

Out and About – Week of March 7th

“If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb.” This phrase has been around for as long as I can remember, and is usually pretty accurate. If you live in the Three Rivers area, you are well aware that March came roaring in like a true king of the jungle. Some of us feel that …

Out and About – Week of February 29th

I have recently come to the conclusion that chivalry is indeed dying. It’s just not that important anymore, much like social graces. Gentlemen don’t open doors for ladies, because ladies don’t expect or insist on it. Helping a lady off or on with her coat is something rarely seen, because gentlemen haven’t been taught this courtesy. The dying of chivalry …

Out and About – Week of February 22nd

Prior to going into the Army, my brother gave me some well-known advice: “Never volunteer for anything.” I followed his advice most of the time. I chose the right time to volunteer and it paid off. Since retiring, I’ve found myself volunteering more and more. If someone were to ask me what I do, I’d have to answer, “I’m a …
