Sister Act

Friday, April 18, 2014 4:32 p.m.

I only have one sister. But when you have one like Cynthia, you don’t need to have anymore. We’ve been best friends, soul mates and frequent lunch partners for decades. We’d do anything for each other. But it wasn’t always that way.

Have you hugged your librarian today? UPDATED

Tuesday, April 15, 2014 9:26 p.m.

It’s National Library Week! Go kiss a librarian. Or not--s/he might not appreciate being smooched at the circulation desk. Maybe we should take them cupcakes. Or hug it out. Or both.

A reticule by any other name spans the centuries

Friday, April 11, 2014 12:01 a.m.

Elizabeth Bennett, Jane Eyre and Scarlett O’Hara all carried reticules. These small, pouch-like bags were often made of net, beaded, closed and carried by drawstrings. In those days they contained such things as snuff-boxes, a sweet note or love letter known as a billet-doux, handkerchiefs, fans, prayer-books, and bon-bons.

Men: Can’t live with ‘em ...

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 12:01 a.m.

I’ve been alive for more than half a century. You’d think that’s long enough for menfolk to make sense, but no.

An appetizer to sigh for

Friday, March 28, 2014 12:01 a.m.

I’ve never met a shrimp I didn’t like. Boiled and topped with Jim’s “World’s Best Sauce,” in gumbo, over grits – anyway you can name – ah! But at a recent family potluck, I was introduced to a succulent marinated shrimp appetizer which can also appear as a salad or be served over pasta. In fact it’s so good; it can star in any culinary …

Life’s most embarassing moments ...

Wednesday, March 26, 2014 12:01 a.m.

There are two things I fear: 1) Dying and 2) Being embarrassed. And there’s a difference between looking foolish and feeling stupid.

Thoughts on PT

Frankly, I was eavesdropping while walking laps at Summerville Medical Center’s Cardiac Rehab last year. I overheard the byplay between a physical therapist and his patient.

Not 24 hours earlier I was more than a little worried. I was afraid I’d run out of words.

Natal numbers . . lots of ‘em!

Friday, March 14, 2014 12:01 a.m.

The first time I helped Jim celebrate his birthday he turned 20. We’d been dating for three months and I gathered our friends for a pot luck celebration in the party room on my college campus, just across the highway from his. Unbelievably, to me, that was six decades ago. Before that Indiana get-together, he’d been blowing out his yearly candles …

Headache remedies from Julie

I have a headache. I never get headaches; in 53 years I’ve had maybe three. I just don’t get them. (My husband says I give them—hardeeharhar!)

Can you believe this is the end of the first week in March? “Where,” I seem to be constantly asking myself, “does the time go?”
