I often find myself remembering my childhood. It was such a simple time back then. When I was five years old, we lived on what I thought was a huge street. It was just two lanes, but it was black topped and seemed very, very wide.
There's two things I remember happening when I lived on that big, wide street. The first was that World War II ended. Germany had surrendered. Hearing the news, my mother screamed, picked up a big pan and big spoon and ran right outside, beating that pan in celebration.
I understand we taxpayers will receive another economic stimulus check this year. Yes, it's a tiny bit of the money we sent to the government; they're keeping most of it. The purpose of this act of kindness is to help stimulate the economy.
Then, I received a funny email that took a unique look at stimulus checks and whether they actually benefit the US.
I happen to be a food junkie. I love to experiment. Love thinking outside the pot, love cooking for family and friends. I watch most of the cooking shows. My husband once told me I had 21 cooking shows recorded. Somewhere along the way I discovered the very best way to grill a steak to perfection.
Back in the 60s, radio was all about on-air live promotions. Marie Gifford, then-general manager of KEEL Radio, was very supportive of the crazy ideas that her programming staff came up with. Two staffers, Larry Ryan and Gene Kent, decided to race to KLIF Radio in Dallas, Texas on Honda 50's for a contest sponsored by Powercycle Center.
All the smack talk back and forth between the two was promoted on-air until the big day arrived. The pair hit the road in the big "Race to Dallas" competition, but not without incident.
Seldom do I throw down over an issue with my husband. After a long time of living together, we have both figured out what we can and cannot "go to the wall" over. Then, one morning this one issue came about. A dead armadillo! A full grown dead armadillo laying in the street in front of our yard.
Yesterday I was visiting with a good friend of mine and he told me a hilarious story. Louisiana State Representative Henry Burns said that his house was always full of kids. They came and went, and he was just happy to have his children hang out at his house so he could keep up with them.
There was a young man who had been watching TV with his children for a couple of days who he didn't know. When dinner was served Henry turned to his children and said, why doesn't somebody introduce me to that young man in the living room. One by one they answered, "I don't know him."
Ever have one of those days when things just don't quite click? You go to get a cup of coffee and something went wrong with the coffee maker and coffee is leaking everywhere, running down the front of the counter and making a puddle on the kitchen floor.
My husband has a service buddy who lives in Minnesota. He's one of those rough, tough guys who's been shot twice, been in a few bad car wrecks, plane crashes, etc. One day he fell off a ladder and cracked his skull open. He was rushed to the hospital where he remained unconscious.
The doctor and nurses didn't expect him to recover, telling his son that he'd probably be a vegetable. "You don't know my Dad," the son said. "He'll come through this."
