This past Friday, Oct. 2, was my mom’s 88th birthday. I wanted to do something special with her so naturally I thought, “Why not take her to Heber Springs to visit the trout hatchery…!”  Of course, this is something most 88-yr.olds would love to do (ha!) – and my mom was a real sport about […]

This is one of those columns that is hard to write – but I want to have all the help we can get. My sister, Tammy, was diagnosed with breast cancer last week. We don’t know all the specifics – which we are finding out this week and maybe next – but I would like […]

I hope you’re having a good week!!!! This past week my dishwasher decided it would be fun to start flashing ‘9’s” and not letting me choose the wash cycle. I decided to fight back before calling the lonely Maytag repairman (aka Jim Allen) and found some help online. Of course, the help was also overflowing […]
