Column: Lindy vs. Facebook
I’ve been trying, in my retirement, to become one of those people who put stuff on their Facebook page. Well. Not put. “Post.” See?

Column: Life is like a wheel; what goes around, comes around
“Why is the sky blue, daddy?” “I don’t know, something to do with the colors, I guess.” “Who is the man in the moon, daddy?” “I don’t know. Nobody; it just looks like a man.” “What’s this, daddy?” “I don’t know; some kind of rock, I think.” “Why...

Column: Qualifying for ‘nincompoop’ status
The word “nincompoop” has been rattling around in my brain lately. I remember my mother using it when I was growing up.

Figuring out the Father, Son and Holy Ghost
The other day in church, the minister was explaining The Trinity: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit. Myself, I think I grew up with one of these three being The Holy Ghost.

Column: Old age makes even the simple things complicated
“You know,” said the young lady sweeping my groceries across the bar code reader, “these strawberries? You buy one, you get one free.” Oh, um, what? My mind was busy, contemplating how young she was, wondering what it was like to be that young, and short. She wasn’t...

Column: An ode to mothers
Mothers are teachers. Mothers are disciplinarians. Mothers are cleaning ladies, and some mothers are gardeners and mowers of lawns. Mothers drive trucks, and own chain saws, both of which they can put to good use. And most mothers understand that baking cookies is more important than...

Column: ‘Up to snuff’ on the odd sayings of the English language
I have my age-old fondness for where our English language comes from. In the process, I myself have become age-old. Our language is old, so the fact that I am older too seems to be a sort of comfort. It’s not, then, that I have become too old to cut the mustard. The only...

Column: Bodybuilding on the farm
Back in the mid-1950s, when I was first becoming aware of girls and muscles, I figured the likelihood that I was going to get some of either was highly questionable. Then I found the Charles Atlas advertisements. In his ads, there was always a three-segment cartoon. In the first frame,...

Column: A case of ‘No mail is good mail’
As the controversy rages over whether or not the U.S. mail should or should not deliver mail on Saturday in order to cut operating costs, I have yet another opinion. This opinion is based on two letters which I have received in the near past. Based on those letters, how about if we...

COLUMN: A few tips on furnace care
Annual maintenance of home heating appliances mostly applies to gas and oil forced air furnaces, so that’s what we’re going to talk about here. This maintenance varies from some simple tasks to some much more difficult ones. Mostly, though, bear with this. You’ll likely learn...

A series of unfortunate signs of spring
Ways you can tell that spring is coming: First, some archaeological remnants of last summer’s civilization begin appearing here and there in your yard. These partial apparitions at first seem almost foreign, but as snow melts, and more of them come into view, some faint memories...
