Patriotism on a Plate - Fourth of July Cheesecake Print E-mail
“The Road Block” Print E-mail

One has to be cautious when approaching old age. The process is very similar to that of a child when he takes his first step all alone on that giant school bus. The fears are very similar for an old man.

I have made the mistake before of quoting the Scripture on saying “Once a man and twice a child.” The Scripture does not really say that, but ever who said it spoke the truth.

“Doldrums” Print E-mail

Doldrums is a spell of listlessness or despondency. It is also associated with that part of the ocean that lies near the equator consisting of characteristics of a boundary of calms and light shifting winds.

In early shipping days this area was also referred to as the “Horse Latitudes.” The early sailing ships depended upon winds to move the ships in travel and since there were very weak winds at this location many ships became stranded for days. When transporting horses, they would throw many of the horses overboard to lighten the ship.

They inhabit small towns such as Falmouth and large cities like Cincinnati and Chicago. They’re not restricted to any one particular race. They are composed of white, black, Latino and others.

“First Kiss” Print E-mail

This topic is a little old fashioned or one that took place back in an earlier generation when most country guys and maybe gals some way or other remember that “first kiss.” In most cases, it was a simple little ‘peck,’ very mysterious, impressive and quite memorable.

Most of these ole’ country boys my age were naive, insecure and very much uninformed on techniques of romance. As a lad of fourteen, I became interested in the opposite sex, but was a little confused on how to proceed. I knew the initial step began with a kiss, but had concerns about when and with whom this first step would be taken.

“Frugality” Print E-mail

I was walking down my road the other day and observed a long black mark on the road where someone had burned rubber. The marks extended for probably, one hundred feet. If I were estimating the cost of such an exhibit, I would say that the cost would probably be 25 to 50 dollars.  Some young person’s mommy and daddy had to pick up the cost, because a driver with that mentality certainly would not have any money. The driver needed a lesson in frugality.
