  • One of the great pleasures in life is being able to say, “I told you so.”
    I don’t get to say it often, but when I do, especially when I can say it to my husband, I do it with immense glee. I may even dance around and sing.
    Moms get to say I told you so a lot.
    Remember Ralphie’s mom in “A Christmas Story”? Ralphie kept asking for Red Ryder BB gun and his mom kept saying, “You’ll shoot your eye out.”

  • I have resigned myself to the fact that most attempts I make at outdoor chores are certain to be spoiled by rain. The amount of rainfall increases exponentially in comparison to the degree of work required to complete the task at hand. I can summon the rain by gathering the water hose, bucket, sponge, car shampoo and a look of determination. Mentioning how badly the flower beds need to be weeded will cause a torrential downpour. The mere thought of mowing the grass will trigger flash flood warnings.

    Close your eyes and think about when you were in school. Who was the person everyone knew, who did you ask to call your mommy when you were sick at school? As parents, whom do we call when our school calendar disappears or when a family emergency occurs and we need to ensure our child doesn’t ride the bus home?
    The school secretary, that’s who.

  • Now is a great time to start canning. You can preserve some of your own fruits and vegetables or take advantage of the bounty of locally grown fruits and vegetables at your county’s farmers market. Home canning can save money, provide gifts for family and friends and leave you with a great feeling of accomplishment. For the best canned products be sure to follow USDA recommendations.
    l Start with fresh fruits and vegetables. Spoilage and loss of vitamins and nutrients begins right after harvest so you want to can fruits and vegetables at their peak.
