Out and About – Week of July 23rd

Just returned from the Frankenmuth area. Talk about getting Out and About. We were there to welcome Mark and Deb Mansell. Mark started out in Portland, Oregon, on June 16, and is on his way to Portland, Maine. He is riding his bicycle across the United States to raise funds for Leader Dogs for the Blind, which is headquartered in …

When is a good time to tell the truth?

The obvious answer is always, of course! I will say that I have not always been honest and a few little mistruths might have crept out of my mouth every now and then. Very few times, mind you! But in any event, I admit that I have told a few stories in my time. I hate to say it, but …

Out and About – Week of July 16th

Some rumors can be very upsetting. Rumor has it that the pizza establishment, located in Marketplace North, in Three Rivers, has been sold. What are we going to do about that? The pizza is so good, and the daily buffet is such a bargain. Life will not be worth living anymore. RELAX! The name is the only thing that will …

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 …

Baby, it’s HOT outside!

You don’t need a meteorologist to tell you that it is hot outside. It isn’t even hot, it is unbearable. In fact, a quick stroll out to get the trash can the other morning resulted in me breaking out in a sweat after just stepping a few feet outside my door! We often complain that our meteorologists get paid too …

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 …

Walking in his shoes

Have you ever walked a mile in someone else’s shoes? You hear people say that all the time, “until you have walked a mile in my shoes, you have no idea what I am going through” or something along those lines. Obviously, that task is not as easy as it seems since we all wear different size shoes, but that …
