The Parsonage Kitchen Shutdown Threat

By · Comments Comments Off on The Parsonage Kitchen Shutdown Threat

A certain situation has been building in the Parsonage for the last several months. At first, I did not think it too serious but alas, we have reached a terrible impasse. It started a few months ago when I came home, walked into the house and was hit in the face so hard I almost […]

Vacation Time Again?

By · Comments Comments Off on Vacation Time Again?

I had just finished my project, sent it to my publisher, took a deep breath and said out loud, “I’m glad that’s done. Now I can rest for a while.” I must have said it aloud for someone in the house heard it. I need to explain that with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, […]

A Merry Heart Doeth Good

By · Comments Comments Off on A Merry Heart Doeth Good

With all the sad news in our country recently, it is about time for some good news. However, the way things are going I am not going to hold my breath. We just finished supper and the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I was watching a little bit of television. We like to try […]

A Key On the Table Is Worth Many A Chuckle

By · Comments Comments Off on A Key On the Table Is Worth Many A Chuckle

When it comes to forgetting anything, I am king of the hill. My forgetting has nothing to do with age because I have been forgetting as long as I can remember. Of course, with age comes an excuse for forgetting something. Don’t let anybody know this, but sometimes I use my age to say I […]

What Would We Do without Rain?

By · Comments Comments Off on What Would We Do without Rain?

Sometimes I cannot help being a grouch. I guess it is what happens to a person when they get older. They get older, grouchier and grumpier. With that in mind, I guess I qualify for being an old geezer. The past several weeks I was grouchy about the weather. What else is there to grouch […]

Dealing with Tuesday, the Worst Day of the Week

By · Comments Comments Off on Dealing with Tuesday, the Worst Day of the Week

The worst day of the week for me is Monday. That means that I’m starting a new week and usually I have to start from scratch. All the things around me that annoy me, make me itchy and I have to scratch. I cannot wait until the weekend gets here. It is the weekend where […]

I Enjoy a Mess, Especially Mine

By · Comments Comments Off on I Enjoy a Mess, Especially Mine

The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were in a little bit of a tussle this past week. Normally (whoever said I was normal) I stay away from such activity in our very humble domicile. Sometimes it is completely unavoidable. This was one of those times. I was in the study area of our […]

My Somber Longing for Summer

By · Comments Comments Off on My Somber Longing for Summer

My favorite time of the year is summer and I don’t care what the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage says. Summer is what I live for especially here in Florida. As soon as Fall arrives in full steam I am looking forward to summer with uncontrollable anticipation. One thing that attracts me to summer has […]

A healthy dose of medicine for the soul

By · Comments Comments Off on A healthy dose of medicine for the soul

A large segment of the human population takes things way too seriously for their own good. The strange anomaly is that most people laugh at the wrong thing and fail to laugh at the right thing. This serious incongruity has robbed people of a healthy attitude towards life in general. Those who take life too […]

Spring Has Sprung a Leak This Year

By · Comments Comments Off on Spring Has Sprung a Leak This Year

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 […]

When I’m beside Myself, I’m in Bad Company

By · Comments Comments Off on When I’m beside Myself, I’m in Bad Company

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 […]
