When my husband and I first married, we lived upstairs over the funeral home that’s on Main Street in Savannah . . . the one that recently had an apartment for rent . . . only not the apartment we occupied.  We were in the one that was once the abode of my great-grandmother, Loura […]

This past weekend, my nephew married the love of his life.  You can see it in how they care for each other, you can see it in their eyes . . . it’s pretty much a perfect match and I’m pretty sure they’ll live happily ever after. The wedding was a small, private affair with […]

I’d say it’s a pretty safe bet that a great many folks celebrated Memorial Day with their family and/or friends.  And, I’d say it’s a pretty safe bet that food was involved, possibly a great deal of food.  Hopefully, there was some time for reflection on the true meaning of the day, but on the […]

They had just returned from one mission when their Sergeant approached them with another one.  It was risky, but they already had two weeks of leave accrued.  He promised them two more if they took it and a solid month off was too much to resist.

In the halls of the maternity ward of Jackson-Madison County General, there hangs a three part banner, the center of which you see here.  It can be found around the corner from the waiting room, the center section proclaiming its purpose while the two ends are covered in pale lavender circles, each bearing a child’s […]

I really thought I’d be writing this while hanging out on the OBGYN floor at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital awaiting the arrival of one Malcolm Edmund Guinn.  In case you’ve not picked up on it in previous blogs, my daughter Kathryne and her husband Dennis are expecting their first child any day now.  Literally, any […]

In 2013, on August 29th to be exact, my son and my two grandsons were involved in a very serious wreck coming from their house on Hard Rock Road to the pre-school where the boys were enrolled.  After flipping at least twice, the mangled vehicle came to rest on the median that runs between the […]

We are very fortunate in our area.  We live in communities that rally around those in need, whether it’s because of a house fire that destroys everything, a flood that drives them from their home, or even assisting with medical and funeral expenses.  In all of those circumstances, everyone comes together to help and the […]

For 20 years she had hated him.  Well, perhaps hated is too strong a word.  Maybe just intensely disliked . . . but probably closer to hated.  He had married her daughter, and he shouldn’t have done that.  He wasn’t right for her, his background and life experiences were all wrong.  It was a terrible […]

It was a beautiful afternoon.  The sun was finally shining after days of rain and the blue of the sky was clear and cloudless. The five of them gathered around the smaller than usual grave . . . smaller because it was meant to receive the body of a child, just a few months old, […]
