Good times on the coast
It was “on the road again” for the Burlesons a few days last week – starting with a basketball camp and ending with a convention.
As I’ve said before, Pam and I feel as if we’re starting over with the “chasing our children around” thing.
Cup of Joy
Scan the horizon; wait for the clouds
“All of my dreams are in future clouds, and I can’t even see them on the horizon.”
Sunday was a beautiful day. I accomplished some reading and writing in my bedroom while the sunshine slipped through the blinds.
By that afternoon, I had made my way to the backyard for a much-needed walk, and while I was out, it occurred to me – blueberry picking weather.
Little green garden snake
If you always thought those little green garden snakes were OK, read on. Green garden grass snakes can be dangerous. Yes, grass snakes, not rattlesnakes.
A couple in Sweetwater, Texas, had a lot of potted plants and during a recent cold spell, the wife was bringing a lot of them indoors to protect them from a possible freeze.
There is nothing like a beach
I am rested and relaxed from my annual Memorial Day week family vacation to the beaches of South Walton County, Fla.
My wife Ginny bought me a book to read on the beach titled “The Rise and Decline of the Redneck Riviera: An Insider’s History of the Florida-Alabama Coast,” authored by Harvey Jackson, a professor of history at Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, Ala.
