Everybody is trying to decide what to do about Halloween this year with the pandemic, and I for one, am not sure what I will do. Since you can be a carrier without knowing, it is a little scary as to who has touched the candy you would get. I think I’ll wait a few weeks to make a decision to…

How the world changes in a week. Who would have thought that everyone would be fighting for toilet paper, paper towels and Clorox wipes at Sam’s? Who would see that everything is closing, no sports, no travel, no cruises, no college classes on campus and no school in some places? Hope everyo…

It looks like spring may be on its way as the rain has stopped, and I hear that we will have a few days to dry out. The daffodils are up, and lots of buds are forming on the trees around the neighborhood. Norm and I walk around the neighborhood for exercise, and see that everything’s startin…

So, the holidays are over and we are back home after two weeks in California. Enjoyed the stay but glad to be back. We had a quiet New Years’ Eve and day as we did the red eye from California. We didn’t get much sleep for a couple of days so had some catching up to do.

As I write my column, it has been a very busy Christmas week and day. We are in California and just spent three days in Las Vegas with our son, Ben, and his fiancée, Laura. They love to play poker and Norm loves to play craps, so they really enjoyed themselves.

As I write my column, I’m sure many of you are hitting the Black Friday sales. Since both of our children live in California, I have them do an Amazon wish list and then I order and have it shipped to California, and wrap it once we get there. That makes my shopping easier, so I’m pretty wel…

It is Sunday evening and I just realized that I hadn’t written my column yet. Busy, busy week with the bag of books sale at the library, meetings for Fun Day and getting ready to go to California to see my granddaughters. They are now 10 months old and crawling, standing and becoming quite t…

As I write my column, we are having another afternoon shower. I’m thinking about all of those people in the track of tropical storm, Barry, who has his heart set on flooding out some homes and lands in Louisiana. I will keep them in my prayers and be glad that we are just getting an afternoo…

Summer is in full swing, and my garden is producing all kinds of vegetables and fruit. When we got home from California, we had piles of radishes, cucumbers, eggplants, tomatoes, cantaloupes, musk melons, green beans and yellow squash. I made some pickles and gave lots away to the neighbors.…

I just got back from the Covington Lake pool grand opening. The first part of the evening it was pouring, but it finally stopped so we could grill the hotdogs and enjoy the rest of the snacks and desserts.

I’m glad to see that everyone is enjoying the new pool. It has been very busy this past week with lots of adults and children having a fun time. I don’t think people realized how much bigger it is compared to our previous pool. Everyone loves the zero-entry ramp, as it is easier to enter the…

It looks like the summer is finally upon us and my garden is starting to prosper. We have radishes, lettuce and carrots to pick this week. I have given a lot of lettuce to neighbors, as I just can’t eat it fast enough. Soon we will have tomatoes, peppers, green beans and more.

It has been a busy week for me, as I volunteered at Pathways2Possibilities for a couple of days. It was a first-time career expo for over 6,000 eighth graders from Horry, Marion, Marlboro and Georgetown counties at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.
