Like a Boss

By Karen Gordon Every now and again, I send myself little notes, reminders, messages, etc. If I don’t have my calendar, planner or empty gum wrapper, then I send myself a note (text message). Many times, these things happen in such a rapid-fire fashion, I simply forget about them until I stumble upon them while looking for something else. So in preparation for this piece – coincidentally, I was purging my phone’s memory so that I could record a rehearsal and I discovered a couple of voice memos from last Fall. In one, I’m listening to LeScoot explain one of...

Cabbage Catastrophe

By Paige Tucker Some family friends of ours love to tell the story of me falling fast asleep, face first into a plate of coleslaw when I was eighteen months old. They were keeping me for the weekend and Cindy had worn me out, to say the least. She had taken me swimming, shopping and to feed ducks at the park. After a day of fun, we met her husband for dinner. They put me in a highchair and started feeding me right away. They couldn’t have looked away for more than a quick second and the next thing they...

By Karen Gordon It was 200 degrees outside and the mosquitoes got to their busywork as early as sunrise. Our family was getting moved into our new house, Bossman was at work, LeScoot and his cousin were at day camp and my nephew was helping me with the fun task of packing up boxes of stuff.

Our new lawn guy was scheduled to lay the foundation for a beautiful backyard garden with the option of a water feature (but probably not…you know…mosquitoes). Upon...

I Smell Trouble

By Paige Tucker   One Friday night, Julia Reynolds was lying next to me in our bed to fall asleep as we were heading into the weekend. She drifted off snuggled close to me and I was enjoying every minute of her cuddles, but then I started smelling something less than pleasant coming from around my sweet angel’s face.   I was sniffing all around her head and face to figure out where the smell was coming from. Surely a toddler’s breath cannot be this bad, I thought, but I made a mental note to crack down on our teeth...

“Hey!! Don’t judge me!”

By Karen Gordon   So many things have happened since my last column both locally and globally. The holidays were pretty cool, except that our adult children and a few siblings were unable to come home for Christmas. I guess that’s one of the perks of them growing up – they start their own families and traditions. It still sucks though. Especially because I remember 30 some years ago when I thought I was grown up enough to not come home for the holidays. I was in college. I was an adult. I was living on my own or so...
