Rubbernecking really makes a mess of things

I had originally thought I would write a nice, funny piece making up all kinds of fantastic stories (just to see who would believe them), since today just happens to be April Fool’s Day. With all the political tomfoolery going on, it would have been so easy, too.

Our cat is worse than a toddler now that he's 1

So our rescue cat, Vlad, recently turned a year old and shortly after celebrated his one-year adoption. His doting “mother” ensured he had a special treat of “T-U-N-A” (we can’t say that word out loud in our home), of course, followed by singing him “Happy Birthday” and giving him a new toy.

My real-life Dennis the Menace keeps me hopping

My oldest son is a real-life Dennis the Menace. He is sweet and caring about others with a deep yearning for adventure that tends to be a tad mischievous.

Celebrate your spouse on Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. The store shelves are lined with chocolates and stuffed animals. There’s a wide array of cards to choose from in the card aisle. Year after year, we tend to purchase the same things.

Famous people I’ve met include Bob Hope

You’re going to think this is a quirky column, and I honestly agree, but I thought it would be interesting to share with you some of the famous people I’ve been privileged to meet, shaken hands with and interviewed while I was a radio station news director — or came in fairly close contact with them at an event.
