What It Was, Was a Peach Tree

For some reason, this week, I had been thinking of my maternal grandfather. I was named after him, and therefore we had a connection. I was thinking about him because this month I turned the same age as he was when he passed. I hope there’s no connection there. As a young boy, I would spend a month, every summer at my grandparents. They lived up in the mountains of Pennsylvania in a long valley. My grandfather was a farmer, and his primary income was his dairy cows. He taught me how to milk cows, and he did it the old-fashioned, hands-on way. My grandfather and grandmother were rather opposite. My grandfather was rather quiet and didn’t talk very much. On the other hand, my grandmother never had an unexpressed thought. I guess she made up for my grandfather’s silence. But my grandfather was quite different, a very quiet individual. I remember one afternoon sitting on the front porch with his brother, Dan. The three of us sat there, and the conversation went something like this.


Greymouth has a good selection of outlets where one is able to purchase second hand books. It is just a matter of looking in the right places.

Are Homemade Cookies Addictive?

Some people say we are living in the “new normal.” I’m not sure exactly what they mean, and I don’t have the time to ask, nor the desire. If the “new normal” is what I have been experiencing in the parsonage for the last several months, I’m all for it. Let it continue. Everybody should be able to live their own normal. Because of being limited, as far as traveling is concerned and going shopping or whatever, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I have spent a lot of time at home enjoying our time together. I must say that my wife and I don’t always see eye to eye. After all, I’m 6’3″, and she’s only 5’2″. I’m tempted to say at times, but I value my life too much, that I have a “higher perspective” than my wife. But you didn’t hear it for me. We have spent almost half a century together, and we’re coming out of it most amicably. Some people might say we were opposites in many regards. She’s on the vegetable side of the table, and I’m on the fruit side.

I Love a Mystery When It’s a Mystery

Because of the situation we are in these days, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I have spent some significant time watching mysteries. We enjoy a mystery movie. I have always loved mysteries. I have read all of the Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle. I have read the Father Brown stories by G. K. Chesterton. And, don’t forget Agatha Christie with Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. What wonderful mysteries created by these authors, and I have enjoyed reading the books as well as watching the movies based on these books. I especially like those stories where the mystery is a challenge to figure out until the very end. That keeps me on edge as I follow the story. Usually, I figure out wrong. I would never make a great detective; that is for sure. The person I think is guilty is often the most innocent person at the end of the story. However, I keep trying, and I enjoy figuring out who the guilty person is. That is not the case with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage.

It’s My Birthday I’ll Lie If I Want To

I’m not a proponent of lying. I don’t like it when people lie. If they lie once, how do you know they’re not lying again? Lately, I’ve been thinking about what the definition of a lie really is. Is there some time when telling a lie is the best to do? And, is every lie a non-truth? The reason I’ve been having these thoughts is that I just celebrated my birthday. It always sneaks up on me, and I’m not sure why because it happens every year. It was like when I was in school, we always had a test on Friday, and it always surprised me that the teacher had a test. So my birthday this year was somewhat of a surprise because I was so busy doing other things I forgot about it. Having a birthday every year can be a little monotonous. One good thing about my birthday is that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage’s birthday is two days after mine. And so, if she remembers my birthday, then I will automatically remember hers. I love it when a plan comes together.

The Proper Way to Use A Fire Extinguisher

Maybe using a fire extinguisher is intimidating to you, but it doesn’t have to be. A clunky looking red cylinder shaped object behind a tightly closed glass door can be a scary thing when the words “do not touch” come to mind. Or perhaps you already have a fire extinguisher sitting in your garage or kitchen area, and you’re afraid to take the first steps in learning how to use it. You’re fearful that it will explode before your eyes or create some kind of irreversible mess or damage.

If I Had a Nickel for Every Blunder I Made

I am not very agile when it comes to finances. Do not get me wrong, I know how to spend money; it is just that I do not know how to save money. Somewhere I lost my little piggy bank. One of my father’s favorite quotes was, “A penny saved is a penny earned.” It never made sense to me, but my father knew how to save money. On the other side, he was not very agile when it came to spending money especially on me. My whole life has never been focused on making money. For me, the outdoor was busier than the indoor with money. I must confess my wife and I have struggled throughout our life on the financial side. On the relational side, we have done wonderfully; at least that is my impression. I know some marriages seem to be based upon finances, even though they will not admit it. Their finances determine how successful they really are in their mind.

It’s Not Always What It Seems

There are times when my bad hearing is a blessing. I’m not sure if I’m not listening or not hearing. It’s hard for me to tell. For example, the other night, right after midnight, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were pretty much sound asleep. There was more sound on the other side of the bed than on mine, but that’s a different story. There was this tremendous boom, several flashes of lightning, and the rooftop was bombarded with rain. It sounded like some invasion. I didn’t hear it when it happened, but my wife shook me radically and asked, “What’s that noise?” Being the veteran husband that I am, I don’t jump to an answer unless I fully understand the question. In the middle of the night, there is no way I’m going to understand anything. That’s just the way it is.
