Why Are You Looking Up Here?

By Linda DeMers Hummel

Why Are You Looking Up Here?

It took a few years for Uncle Tom to remodel his kitchen. Maybe it was only months (life moved more slowly when I was a kid), but every time we’d visit, there was a tarp hanging somewhere or an open bucket of paint on the floor. Toward the end of the project, the only part […]

The Monster

The Monster

One of the worst epidemics in the history of the United States occurred in 1952. That year a monster virus stalked the country. It inflicted a disease called poliomyelitis, which often was called simply polio. This particular virus was unique because of its specificity for humans and its highly contagious nature. Nearly 58,000 people fought […]

Making a Living, Making a Difference: David Kaiser JDog Junk Removal & Hauling

“Service has always been important to me,” began David Kaiser. “And I always wanted to fly for the military. My father and uncles fought in WWII, so I grew up hearing all their stories. They all came back safely, and my home was always very patriotic.” After not making the best grades in high school, […]

Wicked

Wicked

She was beautiful. Still is. She had long blonde straight hair flowing down her back. She was only nine years older than me and three months pregnant with my precious baby sister, Cristy. I could not believe that this was my step-mom. Not to mention I had not even met my father yet! But if […]

Soul Deep

“Well good morning, cutie,” the receptionist says to my daughter, Delaney, as we sign in for our appointment.

Showers of Blessings

When Dawn entered my home that Sunday afternoon in January, she was six months pregnant with her first child. “Surprise!” we all shouted. How could I say “no” to my sister-in-law when she asked if the shower could be here? We spent that morning decorating with streamers and balloons of blue and pink. Family and […]

Not as it Appears

Not as it Appears

Today I tripped over a long-haired, red fox – a stuffed toy for our two dachshunds. I picked it up, turned it over in my hands, and a smile spread across my face as I recalled something that happened three years ago. Our female miniature dachshund was dragging that stuffed animal around with her, although […]

A Friend to Remember

By Jeffery Cohen

A Friend to Remember

Brenda and I were always best friends. Don’t ask me where we met. I really don’t recall, but it was probably in a library. A couple of bookworms like us were destined to squirm across each other’s paths eventually. Playing tag or hop scotch didn’t interest us. While other kids hung out at the local pizza parlor […]

Listen to the Stories

By Sue Mayfield Geiger

Listen to the Stories

I never knew her. My mother never knew her. She was an elegant, petite lady of Austrian heritage born in 1889 at St. Joseph’s Orphanage in San Antonio, Texas. She spent her early years under the watchful eyes of Catholic nuns until 1901 when she was adopted by the McCormick family. A student at Our […]
