Last weekend, the American Top 40 show on Sunday at the 80s was from February 1984. It gave me flashbacks to a time when I was a far younger man, a time that was pretty awful for a while but eventually turned out OK. In the fall of 1983, married six months, I had dragged […]

The movie Wonder is finally available to rent, so we got it over the weekend. We built a huge fort in the living room with blankets and couch cushions and stocked it up with cups filled with Arnie Palmers (iced tea and lemonade) and bowls filled with popcorn and Goldfish crackers. The boys were ready […]

When I first met the owl you see here, he was very high up in the 100-year-old willow tree on the Yahara Trail, where I often walk. I was absolutely marveling over and over about meeting him, because it was more than just hearing him hoot. I felt the actual weight of the sound wave […]

The birds are heartily singing every morning.  Somehow the birds know that spring is closer than we think … and […]

This little fellow was sooo interested in eating his soggy weeds that he did not even notice me standing there taking his picture.  He lives right there on the Yahara River. I often see his tracks in the snow. His tail leaves a line in addition to his footprints. I am thinking I will call […]

When I was in high school, I came very close to missing my senior prom. I didn’t have a yearning desire to go, I didn’t have a date, and I didn’t have a dress. But that all quickly changed for me, just days before the big event. I had a pretty decent-sized mix of male […]

Our latest Kid of the Week is one-year-old Abel from Evansville. He was nominated by his grandma, Jodi, who says, “Abel is a sweet, fun loving little boy who puts a smile on our faces every day.
