  • PRIESTS

    I was born a Catholic. Generations of both parents were Catholic — some devout I’d imagine, some not so much. My Grandmother McGauley was devout as were both my mom and dad. Naturally, I went through all the sacraments including marriage (later annulled by the …

    As I get older I appreciate each day more. Being retired when some say ‘every day is a Saturday’ is a trite way to look at life. Every day is a gift. And with the Coronavirus pandemic even more so. Anyhow it’s a Monday and …

  • Somethin’ Good

    Sorry, not a recipe. Or maybe it is. I rarely volunteer for things going on in my community. Good things people are doing for others. I’ve served on a few boards and visited Hospice patients over the years of my retirement but I never feel …

  • THE WRITING LIFE

    Let me be clear. I love to tell a story. For several years the story has become a book. A self-published book. The process is complicated and each year I find myself saying ” . . . I’ve had enough! Or, I’m tired of all …
