Got something to say?
Early voting signals climax of election season
Early voting got underway Monday at a busy Moore Center. Poll workers were hard at work attending to the early bird vote casters.
Nature's time for slowing down
Things are finally starting to slow down here at the Lendennie Homestead, and it is about time. While all the activity of the past several months has been fun and rewarding, there comes a time when everything needs to slow down and reset.

I don't think there's any doubting it anymore. Oh, I've resisted it for weeks ... living in a state of denial. But I can't pretend anymore. It's time to put on a brave face and face the facts -- summer 2014 is truly over. The official and unofficial ends of summer passed us by weeks ago. The kids returned to school.
