I’ve been thinking I need to write a book - or series of books - about the interaction of my cats with each other. It is so funny and sometimes complex. One day you see two cats being great friends - napping together, cleaning each other - and the next day they have moved on [...]
I don’t know which I dislike most - 100-degree temps (like last summer) or tropical rainstorms almost every afternoon. Yes - I understand that we probably needed the rain - but it’s hard to keep the grass mowed - since it grows about 2” every afternoon. I guess we need to look at it like [...]
I hope you’re having a great end of summer! Well - this week is a pretty big week here in Beebe. Our Walmart is opening this Friday morning. It will be a big deal for most families living here and it has been long-awaited, as we have watched the construction for the past several months. [...]
Recently I’ve been looking around at all the “stuff” I have and wondering why I bought it or why someone gave it to me. We all have so much “stuff” that we don’t need but some of it we focus on and even obsess over. I was watching “Antiques Roadshow” on PBS tonight and got [...]
Well - there was a verdict in the Zimmerman trial this week and it was “not guilty.” I wasn’t really surprised and I’m sure no matter what the verdict - there would have been people who cried “foul” and been unhappy.
As far as racism goes - I believe if we could think that we might [...]
When you write a weekly column - you are constantly thinking about what you are going to write for the next week. Literally, a thousand subjects go through my mind from one week to the next or some thought passes through my brain and I say to myself, “I’m going to remember that and write [...]
This is one of my favorite times of the year - hot weather, fireworks, long days, etc. I don’t seem to find the time - or make the time - to really enjoy all that stuff - but occasionally I stop and appreciate the moment. I have to make myself do that or I robotically [...]
This next week - 4th of July week - will be somewhat different than in past years as we are having the celebration (the city celebration) at the city park rather than at the city hall complex like in past years. The reason is that the new library is under construction on the grounds of [...]
Free swim day at Beebe’s Pool cost - $2,000.00!
My grandchildren were excited to hear about the free swim day Tuesday June 11, 2013. They went to the pool and were the last to be let in. The swim day looked like a success, there were even many people being turned away as the pool was [...]
I’m sorry I didn’t write anything about Father’s Day last week. Actually it slipped my mind that it was coming up on Sunday. I hope all you dads out there had a great day! I know sometimes it seems like Mother’s Day overshadows Father’s Day - and I guess it really does because most kids [...]
