He Has a Point

From The Archives 2010: I had a real craving for my Mother's meatloaf this week, so last night I decided to go ahead and make one. Dad and I both love to have meatloaf sandwiches the day after, so I made an extra large one. After an hour in the oven, it was definatley not cooked yet. […]

Pops Poop Oops

My best friend just became a short-term caregiver to her Dad after he was hospitalized for an operation. He is blind in one eye so she had to re-arrange her house to accommodate his low vision. She even went so far as to set his toiletries out on the bathroom counter so he would not […]

Best Year EVER

From the Archives 2010: Dad and I were discussing the fact that today is New Year's Eve. "I hope 2011 is a great year for us." I said. "This past year has been the best one I can remember." said my Dad with a smile. Well, that's certainly the truth! May all of you have […]

Sticky Situation

From the Archives 2007: Dad and I finally finished the last of the Christmas cards at 10:30 last night. There was only one minor problem.  When I asked Dad to put the postage stamps on the cards, I did not think to tell them that He did not have to lick the stamps anymore because they […]
