  • Pat Wellington: 'Anatomy of a Miracle'

    Twenty-six-year-old Cameron Harris has been a paraplegic for four years due to a land mine incident suffered in Afghanistan. He lives with his older sister Tanya in their battered Biloxi, Mississippi neighborhood where only half the houses made it through Katrina. Then one day in the parking lot of the Biz-E-Bee grocery store where his sister was shopping, he suddenly rises up from his wheelchair and begins to walk.

  • Pun Alley: Humor all around

    Recently I received an email with actual pictures of newspaper bloopers.

    For a long time I believed that comedy writers wrote all the bloopers. So, I found a number of real bloopers and puns from newspapers, road signs, radio and TV, along with some others I could not resist.

  • A Life Altering Discovery: Mothers Are Not Fathers

    Celebrating another “Mother’s Day,” gave opportunity to reflect on the influence and importance of mothers in our society today. I think for the most part mothers get a bad rap these days, or at least they don’t get the kind of appreciation they truly deserve, and they sure don’t get the pay-package they earn. Of course, if they did nobody could afford a mother.

  • 'Life of the Party' ­just doesn't work

    For those of you who think I spent too much time last week whining about “Overboard” not being funny, just a heads up that “Life of the Party” this week is going to be more of the same. It’s no surprise that neither movie is any good, their studios sent them out to die against “Avengers: Infinity War”.

    Both comedy bombs lucked out because that movie got moved up a week at the last minute, so they got to open on weekends when people had already seen the superior blockbuster.

  • Kentucky Derby Day at Cherrywood

    Derby Day at Cherrywood was nothing less than fantastic with a terrific hat competition, exciting racing, great contests and the biggest turn out ever for this gala event. Over sixty residents showed up for the fun of Derby Day and there were about twenty entries in the hat contest. Mint Juleps flowed, and laughter abounded as everyone socialized, talked about the race or the hats or just chatted with one another.

  • I miss my mother

    It is early Sunday morning; Mother’s Day.

    I do not need a special day to remember momma. I miss her being around. I wish she were here right now to do my laundry, fold my clothes and put them away.

    I think of my momma every morning when I straighten my bed and especially on laundry day when it is time to change the bed clothes. 

    I wish the smell of sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy came from the kitchen every morning, but it does not.

    Title: ALTER EGO

    Author: By Brian Freeman

    During a frigid Duluth winter, a movie crew arrives to film a serial killer case involving three young women starved to death in a cage. Police lieutenant Jonathan Stride recalls rescuing the last living victim: “He remembered dragging Lori Fulkerson from the cage, her muscles atrophied, her hair dirty and brittle, her lips desiccated.
