Three things on my mind recently


It’s time to think of writing something for this week. I have a couple of ideas. They are about Belly Busters, the pizza place where we go. And also about getting older as these months seem to be passing by faster and faster. And I’ll have to add to those two things that my computer is not working very well.

Books remain DCDL’s bread and butter


Last week in this column we began a series called “Back to the Basics.” I’ve worked at the Delaware County District Library for over a decade now, and many of the things we routinely do are no longer new to me.

Suppers with local weatherman


On Thursday, our evening started off with supper at our church. Our friend Scott was cooking, so you know it was good. And it’s always nice when I don’t have to cook or do dishes. By the time we got home it was getting a little dark, and the weather seemed just a little weird! However, when the TV was turned on, they were showing a map of where a tornado was traveling towards our area.
