Use of smart phone not as clean as the dumb one I washed

I killed my cell phone (it was a dumb phone) by washing it in the washing machine. It was in my pants pocket, and I forgot. The bad thing is this is the second time that I have done that.

Children don’t change, and neither do English teachers

I was on the phone with my sister this week. We usually talk at least once a week unless either of us feels very strongly about a Jeopardy question or answer and has to call the other about it. Then we talk more often. We especially like to brag if we knew final Jeopardy and none of the contestants knew it.

The beauty of oak trees

I am sure most of you saw the picture in The Covington News of the large tree limb which fell into Floyd Street recently. The limb is gone and so is the tree and another large tree that was in the same yard. Every time I drive down Floyd Street and pass where those trees were I get a jolt. It just doesn't look right. It's like buying a new piece of furniture. Every time you enter the room that piece of furniture jumps out at you. The empty space where those trees were just jumps out at ...

The baffling, neverending search for missing laundry

I have a picture that sits on a dresser in my bedroom that no one ever sees. It serves as the repository for odd socks. When I am folding laundry and if I find an odd sock, it goes over the picture. Sometimes, I actually find matches in the socks hung over the picture frame.

More exhausting: a soccer player or soccer grandmother?

My younger Macon granddaughter spent the week with me. It was exhausting for both of us. She had to be across the road from Parkview High School at 8 a.m. each morning. My alarm went off at 6 a.m. and I woke my granddaughter 15 minutes later. The 15 minutes gave me time to get the paper, drink a cup of tea and read the headlines.

Soldiering on and staying strong

The last time I wrote a column for this newspaper, it was about how my happy family carried on a tradition of picking strawberries - just me, my husband and my son. Little did I know just weeks later he would ask me for a divorce.

So how does a 14-year relationship, a 7-year marriage, die in such a short period of time? How do you go from a happy family of three to a single mom of a 3-year-old? I can't answer those questions, and honestly, neither can my estranged husband. I believe if you truly love someone, the ...
