This past week was one of the best weeks I've had in a long time. the alleged warrant for my arrestI got everything completed, as well as some overdue projects. There’s no feeling quite like the feeling of having accomplished your goals for the week.

As far as I was concerned, this called for an Apple fritter celebration. Just keep this between us and don’t let you-know-who hear. Driving home from my office, I was whistling and just enjoying myself while I was nibbling on my Apple fritter. My goal was to get it finished before I got home, and because of the week I was having, I finished that goal as well.

During holiday seasons, I enjoy indulging in special food.it was a shoofly pie moment My favorite during this time of year is the Shoofly Pie. Nothing hits the spot quite like this.

Although the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage restricts this kind of culinary activity during the rest of the year, I tried to get a pass for it during the holidays. I don't care what holiday it is, a holiday is a holiday and deserves special food. I don't remember when I had my first shoofly pie, I only focus on my next piece.

bug bug where is the bugAs far back as I can remember, every time I would leave the house,the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage would say, "Be careful. Drive safely."It’s as though she doesn’t think I could drive carefully without giving me some instructions. I think it has become just a routine for her.

There are reasons behind all of that. I've been involved in quite a few accidents, although not serious. An accident can create a whole lot of trouble, especially with the insurance company. There have also been times I have run out of gas.

being nice does have its rewardsIt was one of those weeks. It seems that every week of mine is "one of those weeks." Just when I think everything was looking fine, I discovered I was looking in the wrong direction. I should know better than thinking.

Several problems developed with my vehicle, and I had to take it to the garage. Fortunately, when I took it in, it wasn't as serious as I thought it would be. Of course, I was happy about that, and as I drove my vehicle home, I sang one of my happy songs.

wine bottlesI have learned in my life, and probably just one thing: things have a way of catching up with me. I can't get away with anything.

It's not that I don't try. There were a few times when I've come pretty close to getting away with something, but it didn't turn out the way I hoped.

One example stands out. Last year someone hacked into the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage’s bank account and purchased a case of wine for around $700. It took her a few days to see this in her bank account. When she saw it, she immediately went to the bank to dispute it.

What the World Needs Today Are Fathers

There is much talk today about what’s wrong with our society. That list is pretty long, but the most important cause of problems in our culture today is the lack of fathers. So many children grow up without a father in the home. How tragic. I was fortunate… Read More

And Then, There They Were

In getting older, I have discovered, I pay a little more attention to my dietary habits. Or, maybe I should say, The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage pays more attention to my dietary habits. As we get older, she is more obsessed with vegetables than… Read More

Maybe We Should Go Back To Smoke Signal Communications

I must admit that communication is an essential part of my life today. The longer I live, the more sophisticated those communications become, and it’s challenging to me. Recently, I was working on my latest book using my latest computer and its programs. As I… Read More

The Good, the Bad, and the Grouchy

Have you ever had a week where everything went just perfect? Neither have I. Every Monday morning, I plan a perfect week, and I try my best to stick to that plan. My problem is simply, I do not know the meaning of the word "perfect." So I asked The Gracious… Read More

Just When I Think I Got Everything Covered

I like to have an organized life. I must confess that my idea of organization is not The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage’s idea. We may share many things, but not planning and organization. When she begins a project, it is well planned and organized down… Read More

I’d Give Her a Piece of My Mind If I Had Any To Spare

I do not know if grouchy comes with old age or if in old age you are too weak to subdue it. I guess it does not really matter because I am having a little bit of trouble along this line. My grouchy seems to be getting out of control. I remember the good old… Read More
