For me, the most terrible time of each month is the day our bank statement comes. We commonly call it BSS (Bank Statement Syndrome). I don’t know why it is, but I have trouble getting the parsonage checkbook to balance with the monthly bank statement. That ominous document intimidates me every time it arrives. After […]

During a recent lottery shindig, everybody was watching to see who was going to win all that money. Even I got all caught up in the excitement and was on the edge of my seat too. “Why,” the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage said, “are you so interested in that lottery?” “Well,” I said as […]

Celebration Has Become a Way of Life for Me

By · Comments Comments Off on Celebration Has Become a Way of Life for Me

I have just celebrated my birthday, my wife’s birthday and our wedding anniversary. I am not sure how old I am or how long we have been married and I won’t even go to my wife’s age. I’m old enough to know better. I have long past the idea of candles on my birthday cake […]

The Endless Flow of Ink

By · Comments Comments Off on The Endless Flow of Ink

This past week I had my yearly visit with my doctor. Believe me, it was no vacation but it did vacate the cash in my wallet. It was not the loss I needed at the time. It is amazing about my doctor. He knows the exact cash I have in my wallet at any given […]

A Discount by Any Other Name

By · Comments Comments Off on A Discount by Any Other Name

I find too often I get all caught up with the busyness of life that I forget some things. For example, last week the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I had birthdays. Our birthdays are only two days apart, which is convenient for me. My birthday is first, and if my wife gets me […]

As Summers Go, This One Is Going

By · Comments Comments Off on As Summers Go, This One Is Going

During my high school career I was no thespian, however, I could act the fool when called upon. My friend was the thespian and starred in our senior high school play, “Finian’s Rainbow.” One of the musical numbers was, “When I’m not near the girl I love, I love the girl I’m near.” I have […]

The Amazing Wonder of A.G.E.

By · Comments Comments Off on The Amazing Wonder of A.G.E.

I have just celebrated my recent birthday. By now, it is getting to be old business for me. Just another day of the year to celebrate something, which just happens to be my birthday. I believe that if it is my birthday, I should be able to celebrate whatever birthday I want to celebrate. You […]

Go Ahead, Call Me If You Dare

By · Comments Comments Off on Go Ahead, Call Me If You Dare

I don’t think it was in the mind of Dr. Bell when he invented the telephone for people like me to be harassed by people who are only after my money. Don’t get me wrong here. The telephone has been a great blessing to many people. But lately, the wrong people have my number. It […]

Did I Just Blow My Cover?

By · Comments Comments Off on Did I Just Blow My Cover?

This month I celebrate another birthday. At my age, I cannot remember exactly which one but that does not really matter. The number of the birthday, in my point of view, does not influence the celebration of the birthday. Life has been rather good to me in many respects. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage […]

I Was Just Thinking

By · Comments Comments Off on I Was Just Thinking

Thinking is not my strong suit by any stretch of the imagination. Every time I start thinking, I either get a headache or get into trouble. I’m not sure which is worse, the headache or the trouble. In my normal pursuit of life, thinking sits in the backseat. If there is an emergency, thinking may […]

To Stink, or Not to Stink, That is the Question

By · Comments Comments Off on To Stink, or Not to Stink, That is the Question

There are all kinds of questions in this world of ours. Most are rather annoying. It would not surprise me in the least if there were a gang of hooligans somewhere hired to make up silly questions. If I could find this gang, I would disperse them immediately, without a question. Of course, there is […]

Can Two Walk Together, Except They Be Going to the Same Store?

By · Comments Comments Off on Can Two Walk Together, Except They Be Going to the Same Store?

After about a million days of toil, sweat and aggravation, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I decided to take a few days off and relax. I am not a real expert when it comes to relaxing. I have not pursued a PhD in relaxing and therefore it is a foreign theme to me. […]

Two In A Row Okay, But Three Is Suspicious

By · Comments Comments Off on Two In A Row Okay, But Three Is Suspicious

So that you know, I am not suspicious (knock on wood). I take a rather practical approach to life and try my best not to get bent out of shape. At my age, it’s rather difficult to keep my shape. I try to keep my guard up, but no matter what I do, I drop […]

And The Award Goes To…

By · Comments Comments Off on And The Award Goes To…

Rare is the time when I actually am all caught up with my schedule. Whenever I think I am caught up, something happens that takes that and throws it out the window. Such was the case this past week. I was very much happy with the fact that I was on schedule and I had […]

Where Do You Look When She’s Lost Her Voice?

By · Comments Comments Off on Where Do You Look When She’s Lost Her Voice?

It has been a quiet week at the parsonage. Far quieter than usual. I cannot remember a time when it was quieter. If silence is golden, the week glowed with a yellow brilliance. Have you ever noticed when you lose something, it is always in the last place you look? I could save a lot […]

My Advice: Twice Is Just As Nice

By · Comments Comments Off on My Advice: Twice Is Just As Nice

Nothing is more important to a blissful marriage than finding a point of agreement. Every veteran husband knows if he wants to change his wife’s mind about anything, just agree with her. It is amazing how this works. The technical name for this is “re-wife psychology.” The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I have […]

Mother Said There’d Be Days Like This

By · Comments Comments Off on Mother Said There’d Be Days Like This

Mothers are the greatest dispensers of advice since God said, “Let there be light.” Some, not me, refer to it as maternal instinct. My own mother gave me some splendid advice when I was growing up. Unfortunately, much of Mom’s advice shed light on nothing. Absolutely nothing at all. Let me outline some advice my […]

Black Eye Causes Quandary of the First Order

By · Comments Comments Off on Black Eye Causes Quandary of the First Order

Quandaries come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors. As someone who is somewhat of a connoisseur in this area, I can readily attest to this. However, many do not realize quandaries come in two categories. First are those quandaries that come about through no fault of the person in said quandary. For all […]

Life Does Have Its Compensations – Occasionally

By · Comments Comments Off on Life Does Have Its Compensations – Occasionally

At times, it seems as if there is absolutely no justice in this world, and then something wonderful happens making up for almost everything. This past week I was fortunate enough to experience one of those rare jewels of life. I must say not all weeks are like this. My weeks usually range from bad […]

The High Cost Of Speaking Your Mind

By · Comments Comments Off on The High Cost Of Speaking Your Mind

One thing I have learned throughout my life is sometimes speaking your mind only gets a piece of somebody else’s mind – and not the good piece. The old saying goes that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. However, I’m surprised the old dog doesn’t know the old tricks. What good is a […]
