Bobby Budd asked me if I ordered the weather change.  I told him I had. No sense denying the unprovable. It does look a little suspicious that last year when they moved up the date of the Christmas parade, God moved up winter. He might do the same for this Saturday’s Christmas parade. It does

Sunday afternoon, Kimball had already told me the outcome of the Kansas City/Vikings football game but I was watching the recording after she got home from taking a photo of the Miss Merry Christmas candidates. She was not in the room when a fantastic play occurred. Later in the game, when she returned to within

I have a new favorite commercial fish (if you don’t count walleye and crappie). We went to the fish fry fundraiser Friday evening in Fair Haven Park for the Stoney Creek and Walnut Creek Schools.  You know I’ve caught a few thousand bass and crappie so I  thought it was some kind of mistake when

What’s the big news this week?  Lotsa little things. Reese was as happy as a clam Monday, not that I’ve ever met one. But she smiled a lot when I went up front and talked to her as her momma held her. Snider turned a week old Monday. He was making contented noises as I

In a little over a year, Kimball and I went from no grandchildren to four. At straight up 12 noon Monday, Sept. 9, grandbaby No. 4 made such a quick appearance that his daddy, Cain Gilfoil, who was eating lunch, almost missed it. Snider Cain’s due date was supposed to be Sept. 8, his daddy’s
