It was in the middle of February during a very shivering cold time that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage said most dramatically, “I can’t wait for Spring. When in the world is Spring going to get here?” As a veteran husband, I knew this was not a question for me to ponder or even […]

In the beginning of the week the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage said, “On Thursday the girls and I will be going to St. Augustine for the day to visit thrift shops.” It was spring break and so the girls did not have school. It was the perfect opportunity for an outing for them. “Do […]

“Can I Get an Amen?”

By · Comments Comments Off on “Can I Get an Amen?”

An interesting aspect to people is there proclivity toward hypocrisy. By that I mean we say one thing but we really do not mean it or it does not really apply to us personally. I was complaining about this to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage this past week. “Why is it,” I said most […]

Wishing Can Be Hazardous to Your Health

By · Comments Comments Off on Wishing Can Be Hazardous to Your Health

The last several months have been rather busy with hardly a break anywhere. Sometimes the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I get so busy we forget about the necessity of taking a break every now and then. Soon one day becomes just like the last day. And tomorrow? Will be just like today. We […]

Looking for Money in All the Wrong Pockets

By · Comments Comments Off on Looking for Money in All the Wrong Pockets

An incident happened this past week in which I am still scratching my head. Have you ever known you had something, but for the life of you could not find it? I will accede to the fact that occasionally, I do have a streak of absent-mindedness running through me. At times, I wish it would […]

Oh, Dem Golden Tones Of Silence

By · Comments Comments Off on Oh, Dem Golden Tones Of Silence

Last Saturday evening the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and Yours Truly were reclining on the living room sofa enjoying our evening cup of coffee. It is a wonderful way to unwind after a week of activity. No matter how hectic the week was, a few quiet moments with a cup of Joe can put […]

A Bug on the Plate Is Worth How Much?

By · Comments Comments Off on A Bug on the Plate Is Worth How Much?

Did you ever have a smile on your face that no matter what you did you could not wipe it off? Well, that is quite a regular occurrence with me. But this past week was a “smile-on-the-face” to beat all “smiles-on-the-face.” My only regret is that I did not do a Selfie. It all began […]

Please, Just Let Me Grow Old!

By · Comments Comments Off on Please, Just Let Me Grow Old!

One of the New Year’s resolutions I made, which the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage reminded me, is to take a day off and just relax. That is a rather hard thing for me to do, especially every week. The first week in January, I was busy about my business and my wife said, “Which […]

What Time Is It Really?

By · Comments Comments Off on What Time Is It Really?

Time is a strange thing, if you ask me. Even though I wear a wristwatch every day, most of the time I do not know what time it really is. And for that matter, how important is time? It came to me in a strange way this past week. I went to bed as normal […]

Back in the Saddle Again…and Again

By · Comments Comments Off on Back in the Saddle Again…and Again

This is not my first rodeo when it comes to New Years. I have ridden this Bronco so many times I cannot remember how many. Well, I can remember, but I am not going to let that slip. Something to do with a New Year’s Resolution. Back in the days of youth, I used to […]

The Year Slipped into the Silence of the Night

By · Comments Comments Off on The Year Slipped into the Silence of the Night

No time in the year is busier than the Christmas holiday season. Under normal circumstances, it would not be too bad, except for the fact that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is in charge. Not complaining, mind you, but she is in charge 365 days out of the year. Her battery never runs down […]

Santa Claus Hasn’t Received My Letter yet

By · Comments Comments Off on Santa Claus Hasn’t Received My Letter yet

In first grade, our teacher asked us to pen a letter to Santa for Christmas. She asked us, “Name one present you would like Santa to bring you for Christmas.” Then we were to write a letter to Santa, who, according to her, lived at the North Pole, and tell him what we wanted for […]

Nice Is a Matter of Perspective

By · Comments Comments Off on Nice Is a Matter of Perspective

Sitting in the living room the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and me were enjoying some hot apple cider tea and listening to some Christmas music. The song came that referred to Santa’s nice list and naughty list. I was not paying too much of attention, but somebody else in the room was. “Do you […]

As The Cookie Crumbles, So Do My Excuses

By · Comments Comments Off on As The Cookie Crumbles, So Do My Excuses

Several weeks ago, I was at home alone when the doorbell rang. I answered the door to find representatives from a local Girl Scout troop doing what they do so well; selling Girl Scout cookies. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was not home so danger was not lurking behind the living room curtains. When […]

This Fall Was a Major Trip for Me

By · Comments Comments Off on This Fall Was a Major Trip for Me

This past week the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage said to me rather casually, “I guess you know today is November?” She’s always joking with me and I assumed this was one of her jokes. “You can’t fool me,” I said quite sarcastically, “I know it’s October.” With that, she led me to the refrigerator […]

Is the Whole World Crazy or Is It Just Me?

By · Comments Comments Off on Is the Whole World Crazy or Is It Just Me?

Driving across town the other day I was nearly hit by four different vehicles. One ran a stop sign, another swerved in front of me and almost hit me and I’m sure the other two were on their cell phones. After a while I begin to think my life was at risk here. I decided […]

Why Did I Get Up This Morning?

By · Comments Comments Off on Why Did I Get Up This Morning?

All day long, I’ve had this burning question in my mind. One of those questions you just cannot shake and as the day progressed, it loomed larger and larger until I had to address it. Personally, I would like to have addressed it, put a stamp on it and send it to Timbuktu. I just […]

Have You Seen My Glasses? And Other Trick Questions

By · Comments Comments Off on Have You Seen My Glasses? And Other Trick Questions

The only person who asks more questions than a lawyer is the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. I am not saying that questions are bad, at least not all of them. What I am saying is, some questions can be trick questions. To know the difference between a legitimate question and a trick question takes […]

One Good Deed Deserves A Kick In The Pants

By · Comments Comments Off on One Good Deed Deserves A Kick In The Pants

Have you ever had the feeling that any good deed you try is counteracted by a good swift kick in the pants? I recently grabbed a quick lunch at a local restaurant. I don’t like eating at fast food restaurants, but, occasionally, I don’t have much choice. Then, once in the restaurant the menu doesn’t […]

Normal Isn’t All It’s Cracked up to Be

By · Comments Comments Off on Normal Isn’t All It’s Cracked up to Be

“Well,” the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage sighed rather deeply, “now that the hurricane is over I guess we can all get back to normal.” When she said “normal,” she looked at me and gave me one of “those looks.” I am very much confused when it comes to this idea of normal. What in […]
