I suppose that when we get older, we all look at the obituaries in the newspaper. Everyone jokingly says that they do it to see if their name is in there that day. I always look at them. When you get to be my age and you see, almost on a daily basis, people who are your age or even younger, …

The first vehicle I ever drove had no turn signals. You put your left hand straight out the window to turn left; out the window and down to signal you were stopping; and out the window with your arm bent 90 degrees at the elbow to signal a right turn. Some drivers gave poor signals. There we…

The year was 1978 near the spring Easter season and my wife Barbara and I were on our first of many tours to the Holyland.  What an exciting trip and a special time to be in a holy place.  After much touring, we looked forward to the Friday that we would take the way of the cross and walk up…

Yesterday was so gorgeous, and I had been needing to pressure wash some areas in the front of the house. Several years ago, Pat laid down some brick-type pavers to cover the entire area where the front porch of the house is. It turned out really nice and she basically did it all herself. I a…

In the coolness of an early morning, I was awakened by my dog, Regis. It was a day called yesterday. I sat up in bed and stared at my little schnauzer wagging his tail and licking his lips.   I could read his mind, and I knew exactly what he was thinking. Regis was thinking, “Dear Master Tom…

This morning I opened the Meekins family Bible that I inherited from my mom and dad. The Bible is almost 70 years old. The cover and pages of the Bible are worn, but I think that is a good thing. A Bible that is not used is a sad affair, but our family Bible was read every night before my br…
