  • Just when I think I’m not so bad, something happens to show me that I am so bad – bad to my rotting bones.
    There’s this person.
    For some reason I feel an intense, irrational, utterly petty competitiveness with her, even though we’re not competitors in any area whatsoever. Frankly, I don’t think she even knows who I am, but I sure know who she is.

  • I inherited my creative urge from my grandmother. With her bright blue eyes sparkling, whenever she walked in a room you knew everything was going to be better simply by being in her presence. Always an optimist, she would give home-spun wisdom and encouragement: “Don’t borrow troubles from tomorrow, there is sufficient ones for today,” or “You can’t see over the hill or around the corner,” to quote a few.

  • August 7, 1986 (30 years ago)
    More than 30 Trimble County farmers participated in “Operation Haylift,” an effort to donate hay to farmers in the drought-stricken South. Over 3,000 bales of hay were hauled from Trimble County to a railroad car pickup point at Shelbyville. One local farmer hauled 250 bales to Shelbyville himself.

  • My daughter calls me Fruit Fly.
    She explained this choice because, “You have the attention span of a fruit fly!”
    Fruit flies drift through life in a cloud. I live my life in a perpetual state of distraction.  Fruit flies don’t sting or bite but they do have the exasperating habit of flying into your eyes or up your nose. I’m not particularly mean. I am exasperating, but I will give your eyes and nose a wide berth. I exasperate in many, many other ways!
