Out and About – Week of July 23rd

I feel that I must apologize for the actions of some individuals of my generation. We are the ones responsible for raising children who were never taught manners or responsibility. Now I’m not saying that all of us failed at parenting, because most took the responsibility seriously. What I’m saying is that many things have changed over the years, which …

Pet of the Week

I am so sweet as a senior dog.  The lady that was getting acquainted with me was so pleased that I walk slowly by her side.  I come when called.  The staff here think that I am housebroken  as I exhibit good bathroom manners.  I want to be a one person dog.  I have tri-coloring with some brindle and I …

Out and About – Week of July 16th

I recently had blood drawn, per a request from my family doctor. I have this done every several months or so, because I’m diabetic, and this helps me keep everything under control. I’ve come to realize that getting needles stuck in you is all part of growing older. As a kid, I dreaded getting shots, but now I don’t mind …

Out and About – Week of July 9th

July and August have the reputation of being the two hottest months of the year. Normal heat isn’t too bad, but when you throw in the heat index, the atmosphere becomes extremely uncomfortable. However, this is Michigan, so we must learn to deal with the heat and humidity. Most of us have come to rely heavily on air conditioning. Just …

Out and About – Week of July 2nd

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t appreciate ‘FREE stuff. It’s difficult to find anything these days that doesn’t come with a price. This year’s Water Festival had quite a few activities that didn’t cost one cent. It hasn’t been a month and yet here’s another event that is absolutely FREE. Core Community member Kirstin Vander Giessen-Reitsma would like everyone to …

Out and About – Week of June 25th

Dr. Norman Vincent Peale authored “The Power of Positive Thinking” quite some time ago. I’ve never read the book and I’m pretty sure that if I had read it, my life and attitude would have been much more positive. There are those individuals that live almost every day in a negative attitude. The glass is always half empty instead of …

Out and About – Week of June 18th

This Thursday, June 21, is the first day of summer, at least according to my calendar. Unfortunately, my calendar has no way of knowing that this is Michigan. In Michigan we’ve been known to experience several different seasons in the same week. This makes it difficult to keep separate closets for winter and summer clothes. I have faith, however, that …
