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 […]

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 […]

Those Annoying Sounds of Silence

By · Comments Comments Off on Those Annoying Sounds of Silence

“This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalms 118:24). It was in the 60s when Simon and Garfunkel recorded their famous song, “The Sounds of Silence.” I must confess that I do enjoy what I know of as “The Sounds of Silence.” Nothing is more […]

My Sneeze Is No Gentle Breeze

By · Comments Comments Off on My Sneeze Is No Gentle Breeze

It has been days (or has it been years) since I have enjoyed a sneeze free day. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage told me it is simply that time of the year and I should learn to deal with it. “After all,” she opined, “you’re not going to die.” That news was not quite […]

If “All Things Are Possible,” Why Can’t I Balance My Checkbook?

By · Comments Comments Off on If “All Things Are Possible,” Why Can’t I Balance My Checkbook?

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 […]

I Didn’t Win $750 Million

By · Comments Comments Off on I Didn’t Win $750 Million

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. […]
