Roger Truesdale: Some mo' Joe

Posted 4/23/2011 in Columns

Shannon Bardwell: Life in the '50s lane

Posted 4/23/2011 in Columns

Shannon Bardwell: Thorns, thistles and cormorants

Posted 4/19/2011 in Columns

My morning chores just increased by one. Cormorants have come to the lake, and I don't think fire ant bites could annoy Sam more. As he leaves in the morning I mount the Gator and head yonder.

 

 

Shannon Bardwell: One that got away

Posted 4/19/2011 in Columns

That morning while putting out cat food, I noticed a possum in the critter trap. We had extra family at the house and everyone was scurrying to get to church.

 

 

Shannon Bardwell: Going wireless in the Prairie

Shannon Bardwell: Friends and neighbors

Posted 4/18/2011 in Columns

Posted 4/16/2011 in Columns

It is said that, when we die, our life flashes before our eyes. We experience a sort of review, revealing our good deeds and a few things that might evoke regret. That may be true. But, in some ways, my life is already a constant re-run of events.
