   Hot summer days with a feeling of their end soon coming. A different smell in the air, cooler nights and mornings, the fair is near. For my childhood, the fair ranked closely behind Christmas and hunting season at my Grandparents farm. Knowing the excitement of the fair week, Grandma Gallaher always pulled together a couple easy short tasksContinue reading “FAIR WEEK”

Sled Riding

   An old arc light shedding light out over a snow covered hill. The light was at the end of my Grandparents driveway. Their house was directly on top of that hill, within earshot of our house sitting only a couple hundred yards below the hill. When I was a kid, that old light was likeContinue reading “Sled Riding”

Sunrises and Sunsets

   I love a good sunrise, and a good sunset. I see more sunsets, just because I am not a morning person.

The darkened night time sky starts to revive as the soft glowContinue reading “Sunrises and Sunsets”

Rudolph Night

  People look at you, and think you’re fine, they will look at you with a look of doubt when they see you walking with a cane, or question why it is that you do not work anymore, or why you cannot sit still, and their expressions tell you their thoughts. Your outsides look fine, theContinue reading “Neuropathy”


    I can still remember the softness in their hands. You could see the wear that time had given from a lifetime of working.
