  • My wife and I have been married over 38 years, we built a house in 1986 and the best feature, in my mind, is the five toilets. The house is not that big, I just have a “thing” about bathrooms. When I was a child we lived in a house that had three bedrooms and a “path.” A decent distance from the back door and “downwind” was a two-holer outhouse equipped with a library and wasp spray. Thinking about it now, I don’t know why in the South, in the summer, anyone would want to “share” their bathroom experience; I think I can wait.

  • Last year we became quasi-temporary guardians of our youngest daughter’s two cats, Mohawk and Target.
    I say quasi-temporary because the daughter has since moved out after staying with us for a year, but the cats are still with us.
    Once our daughter left, we decided to move the cats’ litter box from the guest bathroom to the now-empty spare bedroom.
    To us humans, that’s a simple change, but not to the cats.

  • There’s a lot to look forward to in the fall, but if you suffer from fall allergies, it can be hard to enjoy the season.
    Hay fever, also called allergic rhinitis, starts with cold-like symptoms. Unlike a cold that goes away within a week, hay fever lingers until the cause of the allergic reaction is identified and treated. One of the most common causes, especially during the fall allergy season, is ragweed. Ragweed begins to pollinate in mid-August and sticks around until a hard freeze.
