The family, or the “Fam,” have successfully made it to the Cruise Ship and are out in the middle of the Ocean.I checked “Life360,” the app we use to keep up with one another, and it shows them all in the middle of the Ocean.Their Cell Service must be lagging because it shows Papa about…

I began Skipping School in the Seventh Grade.Many times, my brother “Tony” would Skip School with me.I’ll cherish those memories ’till my dying day. One thing we did back then was to go through the couch cushions to find Five Dollars in lost change so that we could walk to the Store and buy 2…

I’ve just sat down after a long day.A good day, yes, but long. I streamed “Murder She Wrote” on my TV, and “Mrs. Jessica Fletcher” is still solving murders and writing books. I did my laundry. I still have a load in the dryer.On my bed, crumpled up in one big pile, are my white…

I spent the day out in the country, sitting on the porch with my Aunt and Uncles.I love it out there.The woods have grown up over the years. Their place is shaded.The Great Turkey Creek flows nearby. While sittin’ on their porch, memories of good food from my childhood come flooding back: Turnip Greens, Fried…

I got invited to a Sunday School Class Fish Fry. I’m friends with several people in that Sunday School Class, and they know about my Spina Bifida, so I knew I would feel comfortable being with them. And I love fried fish.Not Baked. Not Broiled. Deep Fried. With Hushpuppies and French Fries that got Deep…

I got another lesson from the “Meat Man” at the local “Pig.” He told me of a cheaper cut of meat that has the same grade as a Ribeye.I believe it’s called “Chuck Eye.”Each cut was pretty thick, and I got three for eighteen dollars. That’s about six bucks each.That’s not the story, though… “Papa,…

“Tommy the Dawg” is so dang smart. I’ve driven all over this mountain with him at my side, and in the beginning, I would say the words, “Hold On” when going into a curve or making a turn, and he learned to “hold on.” He did this by taking his head out of the window,…

“It’s an Atrium. It’s just a Man-Made-Atrium, ‘Lynn,’” I told myself. “This isn’t ‘Gilligan’s Island.’” I had gone to an “After-Show” Party and returned to the “Opryland Hotel” after 1 AM. The hotel has over 2800 rooms.It’s the size of several football fields. I had taken an “Uber” to get back to the hotel, and…

I saw my sleep doctor today.On our “Family” Microsoft Calendar that we share, it simply said, “Pulmonary Appointment.”It didn’t have the doctor’s name or anything.I honestly thought it was for mom or Papa, but it ended up being my appointment.I got a good report about my CPAP use, and I was happy about that, but…
