Father Time, Spurgeon, and Life or, Another Way to View Life and the Future

Monday¬†on one of our local sports talk radio stations, The Sports Animal, a guest remarked, "Father Time is undefeated." Pundits often talk about the future of older athletes once a given season ends. Payton Manning served as the illustration for the talk show guest. How an athlete leaves his or her sport depends.

Selma and the History Debate or, Life Is Rarely, If Ever, Univocal

When I told John he should go see Selma he followed his intentions to do so with, "What do you think about the controversy about misrepresenting President Lyndon B. Johnson in the film?" (more…)

More Than Jeremaids or, John On the Edge

Cataloging your list of woes is not the same as doing something about a problem. Sometimes it seems Christians spend more time complaing about things as they are rather than taking an action to influence the world as it should become. (more…)

Common In/Equality In Selma or, A Seat at the Diner But No Burger

All human beings may be created equal. Not all people experience equality. Selma reminds us that our not too distant past is littered with dubious illustrations of this common reality. (more…)

Number . . . Happy Birthday Patty

I did it. I bought a gallon of stuff peddled by a traveling sales person. Miracle cleaner I tell you. At least when the fellow demonstrated it to me it worked. That was some twenty-five years ago. (more…)

Friday Photo . . . Cohen Alan’s Got His Hat and Bumbo

Grammy enjoyed her recent “snow-cation.” While she enjoys her job, the occasion provided her lots of time to think about and make some new things. I am not sure what is next on the “to make” list, but Cohen’s mom will launch her website full of crocheted creations at the end of this month – www.oikoshandmade.com. Could be that some of Grammy’s items show up. Who knows?

In the second photo for this week Cohen is on his Bumbo sporting some shoes grammy made. He has his feet out as if to say, “See my shoes?”

Enjoy. We do!

Friday Photo – “Like My Hat,” Cohen Alan

“Mommy likes to make me has to wear. Grammy does too.” For the past few weeks we have offered Cohen in a variety of “scenes” where, of course, he is the centerpiece.

When the girls got older and were not so keen on Mom making them things to wear, the sewing machine was put away. The serger was laid to rest. Yarn stayed in the closet.

Things have changed. The sewing machine and serger sit out on the table. Thread and yarn are in abundance. Patty has made some of Cohen’s hats. Kimberly has made others. Here is one of the more creative. What a “pose!” (Photo by Tommie Marshell)

Enjoy. We do.
