Rowe: It happened at Walmart (again)

It's been a while since my first 'tell all' column about my experience from working at Walmart and boy have I got a story for you! As everybody knows, you can't just run down to Walmart without running into somebody or seeing something and coming back with a story to tell. You don't even have to go in Walmart to see the action either sometimes. If you happened to be at the Covington Walmart on a recent Friday evening, you'll know what I am talking about.

Rowe: Celebrating Independence Day

I am looking forward to a long holiday weekend doing absolutely nothing. You know you've got a bad case of the summertime blahs when you look forward to doing nothing. Sometimes you stay so busy doing nothing is a welcome relief but it rarely works like that. June has been quite a busy month with birthdays, holidays, baby showers and weddings filling nearly every weekend, but, finally, we get an extra day to kick back and relax a little.

Rowe: The Greatest Daddy Ever

I thought it only fitting to dedicate this column to My Dad in honor of Father's Day. So, let me tell y'all about my Daddy. There's not enough space here to tell the world what an amazing, wonderful, inspiration you are to me, Daddy, and even summing it up with a few short words doesn't begin to give you the love and honor you truly deserve. My Dad is not just the greatest Dad ever, but a whole lot of things to me - most importantly he is my very best friend and buddy and my partner ...

Rowe: Confessions from a couch potato

Summer seems to have arrived a little early this year and I prefer to stay inside as much as possible. I can already feel a bit of the summertime blues creeping in, but when it's this humid and hot it doesn't take long. Opie and Little Bit are content to lounge around being lazy except for the occasional squirrel that gets their dander up for a good chase. Even Sassy the cat has lost his desire to venture outside occasionally for a little catting around. When I find myself with a little extra time on my hands, I ...

Not just ‘another holiday’

Memorial Day is upon us and schools are getting out for summer, so it seems like perfect timing for a little vacation.

Rowe: The war on terrorism

When I took on the assignment of a regular column, I had no intentions of writing about politics and current events, but recent events have gotten my dander up, so here I go again with my two cents worth. I was very hesitant in writing about the death of Osama bin Laden because it's getting enough media attention as is and emotions are high, but there are important issues surrounding this that cannot be ignored.

Rowe: Happy Mother’s Day!

There are some holidays that should last longer than others and I think Mother's Day and Father's Day should be at the top of the list. Another Mother's Day has arrived to honor our Mother and remind her how very special she is. We scurry, scrounge and scramble searching for that perfect gift, perfect card or token of affection to express our love and no matter the gift, your Mom always smiles not expecting or wanting anything more than just your love.

Rowe: Stand against Sunday sales

I'll bet you had no idea I was a preacher (and neither did I even though I've been told I'm not bad at it). It isn't my intention to preach, but be forewarned that I'm going to get on my soapbox and what I'm gonna say is probably gonna offend some folks and ruffle some feathers. Sometimes folks need to have their feathers ruffled up and if I hit a nerve I'm not apologizing because that's exactly what I intended to do. I've given this a lot of thought and spent ...

Rowe: Small towns, special people

I'm dedicating this column to a very special lady, my "Aunt Kat', in honor of her 90th birthday. I promised not to embarrass her too much and spill all the beans, but she's very special to me and I wanted to tell her and the whole world how special she is and how very much I love her.

Rowe: A love story

I get to have a little fun with this column and talk about my family, which is one of my favorite things to do. They're not as excited about it and I'm sure I'm gonna have some kissing up to do to get back in the good graces of my family, but stories like these are worth sharing and this is a very special one.

Rowe: Dreaming of a good night’s sleep

This column should be quite interesting given that it was written on one of those sleepless nights that seem to occur too frequently these days. Ever have one of those? Mine seem to be happening more and more and you can just about set your clock by me.

Rowe: What’s the gender of your car?

There must be something in the air besides the scant traces of pollen I've seen already. Everywhere you go, everybody's got a big smile on their face. I reckon with the last traces of snow gone, the sneak peek of spring weather has everybody doing the happy dance. I keep warning y'all not to get too excited cause we're gonna have more wintry weather, whether you believe me or not.

Rowe: Be careful what you wish for

I'm afraid I did it again: Wished aloud and got what I asked for and then some.

Rowe: Post Christmas blues

Pardon my disposition, but I have the blues and the official diagnosis is the 'post Christmas blues.' I don't know about y'all, but I'm ready for a repeat of Christmas.

Looking back and looking ahead

As youngsters, we rush through life, eagerly and anxiously awaiting each new passage. As we get older, we marvel at how swiftly the days pass. In spite of this, there are things that remain unchanged and timeless. Those are the gifts that we've been given. Today, New Year's, is a perfect opportunity for reflection on such gifts.
