I dug the hole deep. I suppose that way no critters ever will “get curious”. Maggie Olivia was 16 years old. She was a West Highland Terrier, known as a Westee. An independent, often times moody, family pet. I purchased Maggie from a pet store in a mall. I was given some kind of papers […]

I slept last night with my window wide open. The all night warm breeze was great! These days I am usually hesitant about sleeping at night letting the “fresh” air in. I have developed allergies over the past few years and they are no fun. But last night, no problems. I woke up clear headed. […]

As I sit in my office here at the Mars Hill Network, I am enjoying having my window open and taking in the smell, sound and touch of the wind circulating around the room. It’s the perfect afternoon. To further my enjoyment, we had some visitors this afternoon, four of those which consisted of children. […]

It was over 40 years ago my practical Christian work assignment was given me while at Word of Life Bible Institute (WOLBI). I was assigned to what was known as the “New York City Team”. After class on Fridays, about six or eight of us would load up a WOLBI van and head on down […]

The “Otter” While picking up supplies at a local drugstore this past week I noticed some commotion going on at the front checkout. A shabbily dressed man was reeling back and forth while withdrawing payment from his wallet. His concentrated effort reminded me of putting the final playing card on top of a teetering house […]

A short time ago while at a local Wegman’s grocery store I once again spotted a familiar figure, a man I’ll call Don. Don is one of those Helping Hands employees that round up shopping carts. I had seen this fellow a good number of times before that day as I sometimes stop at that […]

This past winter I purchased a “new to me” vehicle that was almost my dream car. I had driven my Nissan for eight plus years, and it was still running good with almost two-hundred thousand miles racked up. My wife, Evie, is a pro at managing our financial affairs. After we purchased the 2008 Nissan […]
