  • I belong to a generation that holds to the philosophy that “a lady never tells her age.” I adhere to that policy despite the obvious physical signs that I, indeed, belong to generation that keeps certain secrets. I completely realize if time is like a river mine has nearly reached the ocean is and somewhat worse for the wear.

  • Years ago, I knew a feisty older woman who loved to say, “There’s nothing like a good smiting.”

    She’d point out how, in the Bible, God was always smiting people – and she had a list of people on her own smite list.

    Don’t we all have people we’d rather smite than forgive?

    Last month at the church in Tampa we frequently visit, the pastor talked about the words Jesus spoke from the cross, beginning with “Father, forgive them – they don’t know what they’re doing.”

  • Christian parents bear a great responsibility in relation to their children.

  • The other day a coworker was telling me about the time he got a huge insurance check after his house flooded and how he learned that if you have lots of money to spend at The Home Depot they treat you as if you were of a superior species.

  • This year, Easter coincided with April Fools’ Day. I have to chuckle because God gets the first laugh. When everyone thought that Jesus was dead and done, God says, “I’m not finished. Surprise! Jesus is alive!” God showed the world on that first Easter that He can fix anything.

  • Editor’s note: This column from 2009 is being rerun in honor of Nancy Kennedy’s husband, Barry, who turned 65 this week.

    When I first met my husband he drove a totally hot car, a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with burnt orange pinstripes and burnt orange interior – and a manual transmission.

    Because we were young and newly in love and Barry had miles of patience, he attempted to teach me to drive it. It helped that we lived in northern Maine where there wasn’t much to crash into except snow banks and caribou.

  • CAMPBELLSBURG – The Kentucky State Police will be conducting traffic safety checkpoints in the counties of Carroll, Gallatin, Henry, Oldham, Owen and Trimble counties during the period of April 1 through April 30.

  • I have an amazing talent to find myself entwined in some preposterous situations. I’ve been entangled in a maelstrom of the absurd for as long as I can remember. I’ve been sucked under a playground merry-go-round. A footrace across a parking lot with my siblings concluded in a spectacular crash. My brakes failed and I plummeted headlong into a landscaped median. In its defense, the median had resided in that spot for years and was in no way responsible for my plunge into bruised humiliation.
