  • My luck has got to change sometime

    Bless Pete, the whole house was shaking. No, I’m not referring to the recent earthquake that one of the Buford fellas compared to a washing machine that was acting up.

    It was indeed my granddaughter’s clothes washer acting up.

    Now, it’s safe to say there was some small measure of a family disagreement as to when a new washer would be ordered. 

    I was smart enough to stay out of it. That kind of “ain’t got no dog in this fight” wisdom comes with age.

  • Shoes & Smiles: Shoe ministry unites county churches

  • Don’t forget lessons of 9/11

    Ten years and the images are still as vivid as if it was only 10 minutes ago. The horrific sight of smoke billowing from the World Trade Center after terrorist-piloted suicide planes slammed into the buildings.
    Then there was the damage at the seemingly impregnable Pentagon and the plane crash in the Pennsylvania field, which, if not for some civilian heroes, might have struck the U.S. Capitol and killed key national leaders.

  • Memories of 9/11 fill a cardboard box

    When I was home visiting my family this summer, I opened a cardboard box that had been sealed for nearly 10 years. Inside were items I had carefully and reverently packed away, knowing that someday I would want to see them again – knowing that they were artifacts from a terrible time in our country’s history.

  • Determination helped us survive 9/11

    Memories of 9/11 take me back to the summer of 2001, a couple months prior to that tragic September day in our nation’s history.
    The week of July Fourth our family vacation took us to New York City.
    In the years before, we had opted for the annual family beach trip, but that summer we took a train north.
    Turns out it was a good decision because a tornado hit the Grand Strand that week. We were stunned with the news that most likely we would have been in the storm’s path.
