Puffs

Puffs Tommy Lasorda . . . I suspect that unless you’re a baseball fan of a certain age, you are not familiar with the name. However, I can remember his name very well and remember him as the coach of the Los Angeles Dodgers. He is a member of the...

 

My Crazy Life

No, I do not have a New Year’s Resolution. I am just thankful to get beyond 2020 and into 2021. Now what’s to say 2021 will be any better? I don’t have an answer for that question but it’s at times like this it would be good to be able to...

Puffs 2020 . . . The year will not be the first, nor the last, to be cursed, and blessed. (I’m afraid from the current generations, more cursing than blessings.) However, we do move on and many of us will remember 2020 as the year of the battle ....

Well, ya’all, 2021 did not bring with it the magical reset button I’m sure many of us hoped it would. I’ve never really understood the whole “New year, new me” concept. I’ve always found it to be a pain in the tuchus. I have to buy a new...

It’s time for to do a “year in review” but do we really want to take a look back on 2020? We’ve heard it over and over, “this year will certainly be a year to remember.” The year started out fairly normal with New Year’s Eve 2020...

 

My Crazy Life

Looking back over the last 12 months, it’s hard to believe it has only lasted 365 days. Many changes have taken place in such a short time, not just for us, but for the whole world. It seems like every country in the world had a stake in our...

 

Editor's Notebook

n my 50 years with The Express, I’ve investigated a number of ideas that were to bring new revenue to the newspaper business. Most have not lived up to their projections although some were ahead of their time. One of the first was the copy...

Christmas memories are showing up this week. There are the memories of the Oak Creek country school’s Christmas programs that were prepared in songs, poems, and making those special gifts for our parents. The little stage area in the one room schoo...

 

My Crazy Life

This past week has been a bust. Thursday morning, as I climbed from my bed, I immediately fell back onto it. Vertigo is a horrible thing. I thought the sensation would pass, but by afternoon it was evident that it would not. I’ve had this before,...

My Crazy Life

George started work today! After 12 weeks, it is sure nice to have my house back to myself for even a few hours a day. You won’t hear me complain about missing him anymore because he works just across town—a welcomed change. This morning, I...

While talking with a subscriber on Monday, it was suggested I should write more about my life and the business my family operated on a hill overlooking Superior. I thanked her for the suggestion but noted it has been nearly 50 years since I lived on...

I don’t know if it’s just me but it seems it gets harder and harder to find anything fit to watch on television. Oh, there are some good shows but fewer of them. My husband and I have found ourselves watching the golden oldies or as I’d rather...

 

Love my Crazy Life

This past weekend was quiet—a big change from the two previous. I miss the commotion. George and Jacob have decided to start renovations in the laundry room, so I won’t miss it for long. The laundry room was once the kitchen, an add-on years...

Editor's Notebook

This newspaper is dated, Thursday, November 26, 2020 but I suspect many readers of this column will not do so until after the Thanksgiving holiday. However, because the health departments are discouraging family gatherings this Thanksgiving, I...
