Monday night Kimball and I attended a crowded event at the VFW. I have an idea that family and friends wanted to hear and support the Missouri champion of the Voice of Democracy contest. I did. Lydia Eason was well composed beyond her 14 years when she took the microphone and took control of the

Ground Hog Day, Feb. 2, was cold with bright sun. I’ve never paid much attention to Ground Hog Day or its alleged weather forecasting use. As a big kid, I followed one up a tree once that my dog had treed. I thought I would kick him out to the dog. When I got on

As Kimball drove us home from church Sunday evening, I asked if she had sent Wanda Baldwin a picture of Van. Wanda was with us for the early days of Adrian and Davis. Kimball said she had not. So I got into my cell phone and sent Wanda my screen saver which is the latest

I was just about to tell you I didn’t have anything this week and we all know that usually puts me into dangerous territory. Then when I tried to save Rock Wall 012518, my computer said I had already saved one. You probably know that I make a list each week if something comes up

Tuesday was one of those tramatic days that comes to every household with a new baby, separation. Van turned 11 weeks old on Jan. 13. Adrian will go back to work on next week, so she took him to daycare for the first time Tuesday. When Adrian picked him up at 11:30 because Baton Rouge
