After the deer hunt comes processing the meat

Every year, thousands of people apply for a deer license with the hope of bagging a trophy buck and providing food for the family. Though I have never shot a deer, hunting season has been a big deal in my family. Almost more prominent than the...

 

Love my crazy life

It’s been another wild weekend of burning the candle at both ends. Friday morning, I left the house around nine to pick up my glasses from the eye doctor. After having my glasses fit, I hit the road headed to Sutton to have my back cracked by the...

A labor of love

When my husband and I first met Lowell Tuma, he had just bought the house at 250 West 1st Street in Nelson and said he planned to renovate and sell it. My husband and I were skeptical. That house was...

 

Love my crazy life

It seems like everything I’ve tried to do this week has gone completely wrong. We had a water leak at the money pit, a valve to be exact. I wanted to replace it and couldn’t. Jacob tried, then George tried, and notta. We couldn’t get any...

 

Love my crazy life

What a week! I feel like I have accomplished nothing! I’ve been running around like a chicken with my head cut off and making no progress with anything. Yesterday I had planned on getting the house cleaned up, and between work, errands, and my...

Welcome to the Bruces' Money Pit

I have always dreamt of having a big old farmhouse like the one my dad grew up in on the hill near Oak. I’m not sure where I got my taste in architecture from, but I am obsessed with anything that predates 1900. The wrap-around porches, the ornate...

 

Love my crazy life

I’m happy to say Jacob is good to go! Apparently, he has angered the nerves in his forearm, and the doctor told him it would stop hurting as soon as he quits using it as a battle-ax. He gets to wear an extra pad from now on when playing football....

Love my crazy life

Well, Jacob is on the injured list again, not sure how severe. I’m going to have to start selling organs to be able to pay to fix his limbs! We are working away at the money pit. I’m starting to feel like that is going to be my story for the...

Superior charity adds duffle bag program

As we head into the fall and winter months, charitable agencies are stepping up their requests for donations. Most are located in some far off city and we do not know those responsible for its operation. But that isn't true of one group. The...

 

Love my crazy life

Last week was eventful! It was homecoming at the high school, so being the paper lady and a senior football mom had me running in circles. Thankfully the other senior mom, yep, there are only two of us this year, was on top of things. She organized...

 

South Central Power District holds open house on 75th anniversary

Most of us in Nuckolls County have heard of South Central Public Power District. Many of us get mail from them each month. What I'd wager is that you didn't know they've been around since the Stone...

 

Love my Crazy life

I am so frustrated! We ordered a new refrigerator and cook stove this spring. As with everything right now, there was a wait, which wasn’t a big deal to me at the time. Well, my appliances went to the shipper at the beginning of July and are still...

 

Love my Crazy Life

Now that the pool is closed, you would think I wouldn’t be so busy. Well think again. This summer, Jacob bit off a little more than he could chew by taking on four yards to mow along with our two yards that he is supposed to mow. With school and...

 

Love my Crazy Life

The pool is closed for the season. The last days are always bitter-sweet. On the one hand, I’m glad it’s over. It can be a frustrating job. On the other, I am going to miss my guards and my pool rats. Some are off to college, and I will only see...

Love My Crazy Life

Much comes to mind as I sit here trying to think of what to write about this week. The problem is I’d get in trouble for publishing three-quarters of it, and my editor would have to remove the other quarter! LOL! I’ve been trying to eat...

Love My Crazy Life

I’m always joking that I will drive a car until the tires fall off. Well, folks, I almost did that very thing. I knew the tires were fairly worn but was hoping to get through a few more months before I had to replace them. We took the car in for...

Love My Crazy Life

I can’t believe we are at the end of July already. Where has the summer gone? Oh wait, I know, I’ve spent it running around like a chicken with its head cut off. This past week Jacob went back to Dad’s for another short visit. One tank of gas....

Love my crazy life

First and foremost, I have a mistake I need to correct. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article about the Fourth of July events in Oak and made a mistake. I said the pastor’s name was Keith, it is not. It is Kevin Bogus, and I know this. I often...

Love my Crazy Life

By Teraesa Bruce This week I am writing to you from the pool. With the fair beginning and half of my guards off to church camp, I am short-staffed, so I am down here “managing” things. Working at the pool is like that dream, you know the one,...

Love my crazy life

We had a busy weekend with all of the holiday festivities. Friday, we were in Oak for the Fourth of July block party and pot luck. I took a cake made by the women at Caps Cafe. Time got away from me like it always does, and I forgot I needed to make...
