Out and About – Week of July 9th

I thought I’d never think that an 80-degree day was a relief, but compared to last week’s temperatures, which ended up in triple digits, 80 degrees feels pretty good. I don’t recall a lot of power outages in the Three Rivers area, but I’m sure there were plenty in southwestern Michigan. A huge round of applause goes out to those …

Out and About – Week of July 2nd

Wednesday is the fourth of July, but it’s not the weekend, it’s the middle of the week. This sort of messes up my schedule. It’ll be Wednesday, but it will seem like Saturday. Any way you look at it, Wednesday is a holiday, which means there will be no mail, no newspaper, no trash pickup, and the banks will be closed. Speaking …

By now, many students are out of school for the summer. Now there’s the problem of what to do to occupy their time for the next couple of months. The older students will look for work, so that they can earn some money for the fall. Elementary students will be bored after the first week and all we’ll hear is, …

Out and About – Week of May 28th

Probably the biggest event of the year, Water Festival, is two weeks away. It seems that it was only a month ago that the first committee meeting was held to start planning it. Now, the parade entrants are all in, and the packets are ready for pick-up. The car show is ready for nice weather, and it won’t be long …

Out and About – Week of May 21st

I spent an hour or two visiting with a classmate the other day. He doesn’t live locally, so we don’t see each other as often as we’d like. He’s a “snowbird”, which means that he and his wife spend the winter months in Florida. When I think of Florida, I picture several things: senior citizens eating dinner at 4 P.M., …

Out and About – Week of May 14th

I’m hoping that this past weekend, all you mothers were surrounded by your children and reminded of how much you are loved by all. If this did happen, you are to be commended for doing a great job of parenting. Savor the time. In a perfect world, every day would be Mother’s Day. With the weather being as nice as …

Out and About – Week of May 7th

This Sunday, May 13, is Mother’s Day, a day set aside each year to honor the lady responsible for giving us life. My mother has been gone for over twenty-five years now, and I still miss her every day. If your mother is still alive, let her know how much she means to you, and thank her for giving you life. …

Out and About – Week of April 30th

When I think of spring cleaning, I can’t help but think of the Mendon “Dust Off”.

It will be a perfect opportunity …
