Why I Am Suspicious of All Yard Sales

Facebook

One of the passions that I really do not have is going to yard sales. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is another story.

Excuse the Clutter

Welcome to my heart and please, excuse all the clutter. I’m in the process of renovation. Watch out for that first step, it’s a doozy. Even I trip over it. It’s all of my mistrust. Slowly but surely, I’m getting rid of it.

Facebook

Have you ever had the feeling that any good deed you try is counteracted by a good swift kick in the pants?

Normal Isn’t All It’s Cracked up to Be

“Well,” the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage sighed rather deeply, “now that the hurricane is over I guess we can all get back to normal.” When she said “normal,” she looked at me and gave me one of “those looks.”

Those Annoying Sounds of Silence

Facebook

It was in the 60s when Simon and Garfunkel recorded their famous song, “The Sounds of Silence.”

My Sneeze Is No Gentle Breeze

It has been days (or has it been years) since I have enjoyed a sneeze free day. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage told me it is simply that time of the year and I should learn to deal with it. “After all,” she opined, “you’re not going to die.” Continue reading

For me, the most terrible time of each month is the day our bank statement comes. We commonly call it BSS (Bank Statement Syndrome). I don’t know why it is, but I have trouble getting the parsonage checkbook to balance with the monthly bank statement.

During a recent lottery shindig, everybody was watching to see who was going to win all that money. Even I got all caught up in the excitement and was on the edge of my seat too.

Celebration Has Become a Way of Life for Me

Facebook

I have just celebrated my birthday, my wife’s birthday and our wedding anniversary. I am not sure how old I am or how long we have been married and I won’t even go to my wife’s age. I’m old enough to know better.

I have long past the idea of Continue reading

This past week I had my yearly visit with my doctor. Believe me, it was no vacation but it did vacate the cash in my wallet. It was not the loss I needed at the time.

about many things, but only one thing is needed.”
