I’ve had plenty of dogs in my life. For as long as I can remember, a four legged friend has been by my side.

There are a number of things that annoy me and if making a list wouldn’t annoy me I might take time to consider it all.

I thought the old guy at my grandmother’s house was my grandfather. He called all of us “Charlie Horse” most likely because he couldn’t remember our names. I would later discover he was actually my grandmother’s dad and lived his final years with her.

Ninja Man and I live in a city in a planned development with a lot of houses and teeny tiny yards. It’s a dream come true for me because I love simple things like picket fences and having a sidewalk to walk along.

Last Monday, I sat on a pew at the Moreland United Methodist Church, honoring the memory of Betty Joe “Nanny” Bohannon, who passed away Jan. 18.

I kept the GrandLittles for a few hours last week while their Mommy Emily ran some errands. There are three stages to keeping GrandLittles. I had no idea until I had my own.

I was reminded recently by a young friend about how special memories of a grandmother could be. My friend housesits for us on the rare occasions that we have to travel and cannot take our dogs. “Your sheets smell like grandma’s,” she said, quickly explaining that that was a good thing.

There’s a table in my house that has a ton of history. It’s an English Pub table that I bought as an antique many years ago at a sweet little store in Newnan. It had lived more than 100 years in England and I found myself eager to own it.

I am not one to make resolutions but the coming year seems to be begging for a list.

We are decorating for Christmas. It’s quite an ordeal.

It’s a handmade Christmas. I’m all about crafting, especially when it includes knitting, sewing and making items out of paper such as cards and scrapbooks. I’m not sure my family is as stoked as I am about making “something out of nothing” but one thing is for certain this Christmas: we’ll find out.

I love this time of year when the Christmas lights begin to twinkle and my favorite Christmas songs play.

We got married way, way back in 1976. I was 17, about to turn 18. We wanted a Thanksgiving Day wedding so we could have a honeymoon during the time Ninja Man was off work for the holiday.

It’s kinda like jumping off the high dive. Sometimes you’ve got that commitment and you just have to jump. Other times you know full well you can back up and climb down that ladder and use the steps to slip into the shallow end.

The time change always gets the best of me for a day or so.

While visiting a friend in the hospital I misplaced something pretty important.

My new cellphone arrived on Monday. New Cellphone Day is always eventful and has never failed to start out with being forced to stay at home all day because a signature is required.

We went camping for the first time in several years last weekend. The fall leaves in the northern part of Alabama weren’t in full color when we arrived on Friday but by Sunday they were pretty impressive.
