Finally sitting down to write my column after a busy community yard sale day. I don’t think it was as busy as our spring yard sale, but since we were the first yard sale this spring after the pandemic, I think there was a lot of pent-up demand.
The Waterford Plantation community yard sale was held on Saturday, Oct. 10. The weather was warm and sunny. It had started out a bit cloudy earlier in the day. Traffic seemed lighter than in past events. Attendees asked for a list or map to point them to participants and why it was not promo…

This is not the first column that I have written since COVID, as I was asked to write a newsletter to appear on our neighborhood site, Covington-Lake.com, to keep people informed of what was going on.

A large black bear was seen at 7 p.m. in daylight this week on a Plantation Lakes’ front lawn. Black bears are attracted to bird feeders, pet food, greasy barbecue grills and trash cans with food residue. They damage vehicles and homes to get food. Keep pet food containers indoors, barbecue …
Hello, it’s great to be back. My last column was on March 27. I’m going to start this column with some thoughts I had written down on March 29, not knowing if or when I would be writing this column again:

The Darwin awards, of course in honor of Charles Darwin, acknowledge those folks whose behavior indicates that not all humans have actually evolved to even a basic level of common sense.
The apostle Paul frequently refers to Christian believers as those “in Christ.” For instance, in his greeting to Christians in Ephesus, Paul calls his readers, “holy ones” and “faithful followers” in Christ Jesus. Rather than turn our conversation into a left-brain mini-lecture on the precis…
Perhaps I should say, fathers can be parents, too. I have had many discussions with fathers who want to be the best father they can be, but feel they don’t know how…have not been prepped well, not invited in to be a partner, or just didn’t feel they could do the job especially with the girl …
