  • Today was a perfect day! The weather was absolutely beautiful, a cool breeze blew most of the day and even though the temperature reached the low 80’s at some point, it was never hot or humid. We accomplished all that we set out to do and the day ended with a freshly grilled hamburger, and […]

  • There was a time in our nation when even one day off was considered a luxury. Men and women and sometimes even children worked 16 and 18 hour days, six or seven days a week. Somewhere along the way we were given the 8 hour work day and a 5 day day workweek. Every weekend […]

  • Memorial Day always evokes images of flag draped caskets and bugle players for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice. It is not often I speak of my step father with respect or honor, but on Memorial Day it is only fitting that I should remember that Donald Edward Krueger was on active duty in […]

  • So today I learned that a word I have used my entire life is in fact NOT a word at all! Who knew? Today while typing the “word” pronunciate, we kept getting the dreaded red underline. Thinking perhaps that I had used the word incorrectly I checked and re-checked only to learn sadly that pronunciate […]

    A Poverty Czar??!!!???

  • Are you kidding me? While most of the time I stay away from discussing politics in a public forum, today I feel I must make at least a comment about something Hillary Clinton said today. While watching an interview conducted by a reporter from a Raleigh station, Mrs. Clinton said that the way she would […]

    It’s like riding a bike… it all comes back to you!

  • Riding a bike is the thing we never forget how to do. And so once again we have brought out the bikes and went for our first evening ride. Racing through the neighborhood tonight I was reminded of long ago learning to ride my bike circa 1955. I remember my aunt and uncle buying me […]
