I got the golden ticket

Our bus pulled into the parking lot. I remember being full of excitement. I was going to see my first NFL football game, the St. Louis Cardinals versus the Baltimore Colts in old Memorial Stadium in Baltimore. I didn't know much about either team, but I wasn't about to pass up a chance to go... Continue Reading →

Checking in on the modern day Soap Opera

When I was a young boy, my mother would let me play at a friend's house. We’d play with her brother’s Matchbox cars, or I’d cart my Lincoln Logs and we’d build a fort. We would be allowed to play uninterrupted for hours as long as we didn’t bother her mother in the middle of... Continue Reading →

Walking on clouds

I complained to my mom. I didn’t want to go and now my feet hurt. My elementary class was singing and performing for the residents of a local nursing facility. My mom yelled at me that if I didn’t get a move on, I was going to be late.  I wanted to stay home and... Continue Reading →

Looking forward to a crowded stadium

I grew up loving Major League Baseball. My wife isn't as big of fan as me, but she still likes to go to a game or two each year. As a treat to ourselves, we bought tickets to the Philadelphia Phillies game in late August against the Cincinnati Reds.  We were excited about the game... Continue Reading →

A walk in the park

The ground is wet. I see that it rained the night before, but the sun is out and will burn-off the two or three puddles that I see along the trail in no time. We’ve taken a small handful of steps, but I can see already that my wife’s pace is brisk and determined and... Continue Reading →

The Mount Rushmore of everything

The Mount Rushmore National Memorial sculpture, carved in the Black Hills section of South Dakota, attracts nearly 3 million visitors each year. Workers used dynamite and jackhammers to remove more than 450,000 tons of rock to create the 60-foot high granite faces of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln.
