Ah, that famous street in New York. We’ve all heard of it. We know it’s there, but it’s surprising how little we really know about it.

Waking to the smell of percolating coffee, I remember Dearly Demented Mom heading out the door to grab the morning newspaper.

It was a magnificent house. Everyone agreed it was perfect. This home would not only serve its residents well, but also would be a fabulous and proper place for our country’s second in command. You may not know this, but in 1920 our nation’s vice president still had no official place to live.

They were just two little girls in Cherryvale, Kansas. Best friends to be sure, but one of them seemed to be destined for greatness. And indeed one of them was.

You’re about to have a houseful of adults, children and a real strange old maid aunt over for another joyous holiday event - the carving and eating of the bird

On March 22, 2007, I wrote a column entitled, “Almost Home.” It was about the loss of two of my feline friends that were both struck by vehicles on the morning of March 14.

She called him...Mon petit Chien, and if you know a bit of French, then you know that means, “my little dog.” But it is not an insult.

Well, it’s that time of year again when women everywhere are called upon to make gravy. Although most people’s number one fear is public speaking, mine is gravy.

Before I get started on this week’s story, I want to thank the Kerrville Holiday Lighted Parade Committee for all their hard work to make the parade on Friday, Nov. 20, most memorable parade.

The Spanish soldiers climbed the step cliff with vigor. Above them stood the target of their search - El Dorado, the City of Gold.
