As big as my ears are, you would think I would be able to hear everything I am listening to. I like to think I am hearing what I am listening to but I have so many illustrations that prove otherwise. I’m not sure what it is, but I am working on it with the […]

When it comes to certain things, I am quite a bit confused. One thing has to do with time. What I want to know, what time is it? I do not know why time cannot be the same for everybody. After all, everybody is squirming about equal rights. Why can’t we have equal time rights? […]

Where in the World Does Time Go?

By · Comments Comments Off on Where in the World Does Time Go?

I remember my grandfather telling me that the older you get the faster time flies. Laughing at him at the time I thought it was another of his little stories he loved telling. Just the other day I caught myself telling one of my grandchildren, “The older you get the faster time flies.” Then it […]

I’ll Do It First Thing Tomorrow

By · Comments Comments Off on I’ll Do It First Thing Tomorrow

You would think being a husband as long as I have been I would have learned the fine art of negotiating with my wife. And trust me, it is an artistic creation. When I got married, somebody told me that marriage was a 50-50 proposition, which being the naïve young man that I was, believed […]

The Strange Myth of Multitasking

By · Comments Comments Off on The Strange Myth of Multitasking

I have been pondering a delicate question this week. Why is it I can only do one thing at a time? If only I could do several things at a time, I could get more accomplished. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is an expert when it comes to multitasking. Although I have lived with […]

Why Did God Give Us Winter?

By · Comments Comments Off on Why Did God Give Us Winter?

Living in Florida my idea of winter is anytime the temperature drops below 60°. At that point, I do the shiver-me-timbers dance. You don’t want to know! I have a rare disease called Coldaphobia. As far as I know, there is no cure for this except escaping to Florida. Even here, cold will manage to […]

Did Someone Just Hack My Thermometer?

By · Comments Comments Off on Did Someone Just Hack My Thermometer?

I do not like to complain (except on certain occasions when nobody is listening) but I am not too happy with the weather these days. I have never felt so cold before. Is it true that the older you get, the less cold temperature you can stand? If it is not true, it sure is […]

Everything old is getting older still

By · Comments Comments Off on Everything old is getting older still

A friend of mine has a saying, “I’m going to get as old as I possibly can get.” From what I can tell, he has. I must agree with his sentiment. Of course, the alternative is… well you know. Another friend of mine likes to tell me, “Brother, you’re only as old as you feel.” […]

It’s déjà vu all over again

By · Comments Comments Off on It’s déjà vu all over again

New Year’s Day was filled with lots of excitement, plenty of grandchildren running around and enough food on the table to eliminate world hunger. Actually, it did eliminate my ravishing hunger, at least for the day. Both the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and Yours Truly simultaneously signed a deep sigh. My wife sat in […]

Is The Cup Half Empty or Half Full?

By · Comments Comments Off on Is The Cup Half Empty or Half Full?

Many things in life have me in a tangle of confusion. I try to put on a good face so that nobody knows how confused I am at the time. I think I get away with it, at least most of the time. The only person I cannot fool is the Gracious Mistress of the […]

Another Christmas up the Chimney

By · Comments Comments Off on Another Christmas up the Chimney

It hardly seems possible that another Christmas has come and gone. I think it comes quicker than it goes, but then that is just my opinion. We were sitting for the last time around the Christmas tree which was about to be disassembled and I happen to say, “I can’t believe Christmas is over. Where […]

The Merrification of Christmas

By · Comments Comments Off on The Merrification of Christmas

One word defines Christmas. It is the word “merry.” I never tire of wishing people a Merry Christmas. Although, for some, it may not be politically correct, but for the rest of us who have at least two gray cells working, it is wonderful. I was relaxing one afternoon this past week when the Gracious […]

Some Things Are Just Personal

By · Comments Comments Off on Some Things Are Just Personal

I will grant I have a few eccentricities. But, far less than the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage has avowed through the years. Listening to her, a person might come to believe my eccentricities are without limit. It is simply not the case. I firmly believe one man’s eccentricity is another man’s way of doing […]

The Sound of Crickets Chirping in the Backyard

By · Comments Comments Off on The Sound of Crickets Chirping in the Backyard

Noise has become a daily experience for many people today. From morning until night, we are surrounded by noise of all kinds. People have gotten accustomed to an atmosphere of noise. For my part, I am just a little bit tired of all the noise. What would life be like if there was silence? The […]

The Only Contest I Really Win Each Year

By · Comments Comments Off on The Only Contest I Really Win Each Year

Between now and the end of the year our house is going to be a mad dash for the stores in preparation for Christmas. This time of the year, I lay low and try to be as invisible as possible. If I hide in the shadows of the parsonage and do not speak, I am […]

Apart from That, I’m Doing Fine!

By · Comments Comments Off on Apart from That, I’m Doing Fine!

I know I am not correct on many things, just ask the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. If I could be right as many times as I am wrong, I would be a genius. The problem is, I am more wrong than I am right, which puts me a little bit out of balance. People […]

How Did the Devil Get My Cell Phone Number?

By · Comments Comments Off on How Did the Devil Get My Cell Phone Number?

I am not one easily rattled. When I am rattled, look out for anything can happen. For the most part, I try to stay calm, cool and collected. Then there are times when I have had enough and I am not going to take it anymore. When I am rattled about something, it is not […]

A Cup of Joe Says a Lot About Us

By · Comments Comments Off on A Cup of Joe Says a Lot About Us

This week I came face-to-face with a genuine dilemma. I had several meetings across town and for some reason I miscalculated and ended up with a 2-1/2 hour gap between meetings. I hate to waste time, but if I drove back to my office, I would simply have to return to my meeting later and […]

Where Have All the Clowns Gone?

By · Comments Comments Off on Where Have All the Clowns Gone?

The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were getting ourselves situated in the living room with some after supper coffee while watching the little bit of TV. These days, a little bit of TV is about all a person can handle. Nothing quite measures up to a nice hot cup of coffee after a […]

Get me to the airport on time

By · Comments Comments Off on Get me to the airport on time

I was off to the airport on another trip. I started out early, arrived at the airport on time, but when I arrived the plane had canceled and I had to apply for another plane. The next plane headed for my destination was about two hours away. This would, in fact, make me miss my […]
