Baseball 2020!

What horrible luck – Spectrum finally ends the stalemate so everyone can finally watch the Dodgers and there is no baseball season! The thing about this whole covid-19 thing is that every day is like a whole new ballgame.  And I started thinking right off the bat, the whole baseball lingo really describes this current season of life.Warning […]

Are you bored? Is sheltering at home driving you crazy? Have you binged watched until you want to puke? Have you cleaned and purged every corner of your living space? I have heard that word more in the last few weeks than I have in quite awhile so I felt compelled to share my views. […]

Who am I?

I know I wear a variety of hats in my life.  Most of them give me hat head so that I don’t want to take them off.  Nevertheless, I need to be ready to switch roles and I have put some hats on a shelf (pastor) or thrown them out (wife). Often at work I […]
