Got something to say?
Book Review: "Flight of the Butterflies"
In my search for reading material for the grandkids, I sometimes stumble upon a jewel. Such a find was "Flight of the Butterflies" by Roberta Edwards.
Difficult conversations down the road
Last week, I was reading an article on whatever techie website I was visiting, trying to track down rumors about the next iPhone, and the article referenced athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos, the two athletes who raised their gloved fists in a symbol of human rights solidarity at the 1968 Summer Olympics.
I think her first stop will be Zimbabwe...
Well hi there. Not like it's any big deal or anything, but I did kind of, you know, have a baby a few months ago, and this is my first week back on the job, and it's all a little overwhelming.

The Carousel Farms Pet Cemetery has interred another of the family-loved animals.
Basketball done for the year, Huskies on top

Opening Day at the Sportsplex is almost here
Weather permitting, the local recreational baseball season will get under way Monday night. There's no better place to be on a spring evening than the Blytheville Youth Sportsplex. The atmosphere is second to none.
"Songs for My Kids" offers words of wisdom
One of the great things about the rise of digital music is the ability to create playlists. It's not really a new concept, mind you. Back in the '80s, we had our "mix tapes;" and in the '90s, people started burning their own CDs.
Eagles, grandkids and dog pens make for a busy week
My son is on his way back to Seattle as you are reading this, but we got to spend just over a week with him and it was really nice.
Baseball binds people together
Well ladies and gentlemen, baseball season is finally here ... and not a moment too soon either.
Running in circles ...
Sometimes I find myself feeling my way in this darkness. It seems I am going in circles. A younger me, always impatient, this older version of me is often reminded that my time is running out to fast.
