  • Although I don’t think it’s terminal, it is chronic: I have a chronic case of CRS -- Can’t Remember Stuff.
    That’s the diagnosis one of my co-workers gave me the other day. He may or may not have been joking.

  • My success rate with horticulture is hit or miss. Last year my garden deteriorated into a state of decaying, exploding chaos. I have no clue what happened. Whatever it was it was ugly. I’m positive my Dad is in Heaven shaking his head in dismay. He taught me better than that! I just managed to forget critical elements.

  • Many of us have fond memories of our grandfathers… the stories, the candy, the fishing lessons and life lessons we learn while visiting them are things we treasure and carry with us throughout our lives.
