  • The boyfriend

    “Hey Cindy,” I yelled from the window as I held a tissue up to my lip. “Who’s this guy Brenda’s pulling up with in the drive?”
    “It’s Brandon. He’s a boy she’s going with right now.”
    “Going where with?”
    “Going with as in dating.”

  • The days go by

    It’s a line from the Eagles 1975 classic hit, Tequila Sunrise: “The days go by.”
    And they do. Whether you like it or not, whether you are waiting for (or enduring) a tequila sunrise on a beach in Acapulco, or working in a coal mine in Eastern Kentucky, or trading stocks on Wall Street, or writing songs in Nashville — the days go by. Like wet sand slipping through our fingers, the days go by.

  • Fears about tomorrow

    “Be not afraid.”
                  God

    “Be not afraid” is the most quoted phrase in the Bible. It was used by God more often in speaking to his people than any other words that he had to say.
    He knew us so well.
    Why did he have to tell us to not be afraid so often? Because this world is a scary place. It was yesterday, it is today, and it will be tomorrow.

  • State legislators staying busy in Frankfort

    Legislative committees were hard at work this week approving many bills that then moved to the Senate floor for consideration by the full body.

  • People are work

    “People are work, brother. A lot of work. Too much work.”

  • My van hates my daughter

    It’s my belief that cars and trucks actually have personalities. Some are good natured all the time, some are grumpy in the morning, some love a challenge like running through snow, some don’t like to be rained on, some like it hot, and some like it cold. Then again, some can be just plain ornery when they feel they’ve not been given proper respect.
    Really.

  • A crime against nature

     

  • You wanna bet?

     

    “I’d be willing to bet you, if I was a betting man, that I’ve never bet on baseball.”

  • The Odd Couple

    “Life goes on, even for those of us who are divorced, broke, and sloppy.”
    Oscar Madison

    “The Odd Couple,” is one of Neil Simon’s funniest plays, even after almost 50 years since it first appeared on Broadway.  Now it’s coming to our town, by way of the Central Kentucky Community Theatre to the Opera House in Springfield.  

  • Just one word

    All it took for Doris Troy was, “Just One Look,” in the words of the hit song she wrote and sang to the top of the charts in 1963. “Just one look/ That’s all it took, yeah /Just one look.” Good and right for her.
     But sometimes, in other situations, all it takes is just one word — one word to change a life forever.
