Hello, gray

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard Just last year I found the first clusters of gray hair at each of my temples. Somehow I managed to be the only one of my former high school classmates in my group of friends and among my family who made it well into my 40s with […]

Exercise your right to vote

The Way I See It by Don West Well, the time has come to “fish or cut bait.” You can vote early or you can wait until Election Day, but I hope you do take the time to vote.  Yeah, I know, the choices are as nauseating as they have ever been and the fact […]

Alive with hope

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey I absolutely love the series “Grey’s Anatomy”  and I have for years! It is a show about doctors, for those of you not in the know. The characters are lovable, smart and thoroughly interesting. The plot lines are complex and often touching. My life is no plot line for sure, but […]

Protest, but choose your method wisely

The Way I See It by Don West Let me establish my mindset before I launch into this rant.  I firmly believe that Colin Kaepernick has a right as a citizen of this great nation to speak his mind, protest, demonstrate and use his public position to further his cause.  Millions of men and women […]

Life after sugar

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey I have been considered petite or little all of my life, then my body started to betray me! How dare it? After all, I have been nearly an exercise fanatic most of my life! If I am to be honest though, my vice has always been my fondness for sweets. My […]

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey No, my father’s name is not Glen. Yes, I have to pronounce my name nearly every time I speak to someone on the phone, go to any office or give information at a checkout line. I know it is odd, my name, but it is phonetically sound. Glenetta… thanks, Momma! […]

Wrong number, right call

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard Last week I accidentally sent an inappropriate joke to a wrong number. Yikes. But that’s not even the best part of this story, so let me backtrack a bit first. The week prior to the embarrassing incident, my phone crashed for the second time in a year. […]

Pet owners have responsibilities

The Way I See It by Don West When I was a younger man, after my tours in Vietnam, I became quite interested in what was then referred to as “guard dogs.” They were generally of the German shepherd breed (my favorite), Rottweiler or Doberman.  I did a considerable amount of research and some hands-on […]

The bond of ‘brothers’

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey This past year I had waited to be part of a play ironically named “It’s Only a Play.” It is one of my favorite Broadway plays. I also looked forward  to having three of my brother’s comrades from his time in Vietnam visit with my family. It is true for […]
