What’s Left?

I think one of the most interesting and gratifying things about having lots of cats (and I don’t recommend it for most people - 2 to 4 is enough) is watching how they interact with each other. I have one old male cat that I rescued from downtown and he was all scarred up, missing [...]

Well - it’s back to school this week for all the kids. I know the parents are probably happy. Hope you all had a good spring break!
The other day I was watching my mom’s dog, Lil, as she pranced around the door as she waited for my mom to go outside with her. My mom [...]

I had to share a photo of my little pineapple that I’m growing! Isn’t it cute?  It’s about 3” wide and about 6” tall. I started it last summer by cutting the top off a store-bought pineapple. I just placed the top in the dirt (did not bury it) and watered it. I had it [...]

A few days ago I went over to our new library (Goff Public Library) located between City Hall and the fire station, and I was so impressed with the facility. If you haven’t been over there yet - you need to check it out. I haven’t been in all the businesses or public buildings in [...]

Just a short column this week. Hope you all are having a good week and enjoying these few days of 70-degree weather. I am loving it! Can’t wait until Spring is here (a week from Thursday- March 20). It won’t be long. I just hope we have a regular Spring - or maybe I should [...]

I’m trying to type with one hand while one cat is resting on my left arm and another is leaning up against my laptop. One other cat is laying on my leg and another is resting against my pillow. Oh yeah- did I say that I’m sitting in bed working on my laptop?  The cats [...]

One bad thing about getting older is that almost every week, someone you know passes away. Well, this past week a former banker here in Beebe, Garland Kirkpatrick, passed away in Texas. Garland and his wife, Wilma, had moved to Texas in November of 2010 to be closer to their two daughters. Garland was always [...]

I feel for our friends up in the northeast who have been suffering with snowfall for - it seems like - the whole winter. They, like the rest of us, are counting the days until Spring. But, just like it always is around here - with good weather comes the threat of severe weather. We [...]

I’ve been having a good time watching the Olympics.  I’m not totally into the speed skating but the rest of it is fun to watch.  Think about the number of hours that each athlete has put in on his/her sport. It’s a great lesson in dedication, perseverance, victory and defeat.  Just like sports on any [...]

Usually, when I’m thinking about what I’m going to write about in the next column, I mentally make notes of things that are going on/bothering me/amusing me/ etc. This week, as I was thinking about it - and not wanting to run the erratic weather topic into the ground - as I write about it [...]
