Dear Cousin,

 

Summer's slipping away, slowly but surely, as August moves out and makes way for September. There is an almost imperceptible change in the atmosphere, a subtle softening in the leaves. Growth has come to a standstill in the garden, with drying cornstalks and withered bean vines.

Wild morning glory vines wind through the dying vegetation, velvety trumpets of blue and deep pink decorating the cornstalks and lending bright spots of color to the brown garden. I can still hear my...

YOUNG LOVE

 

Some things never change. Or, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Let's all never get too old to remember what being in love when we were teenagers was like. My gang of friends from high school are now grandmothers. I sure would never have thought, when I was a teen, that my grandmother could have ever experienced any of the things that I was going through! ‑Oh horrors!!!! ‑As teens, we could not even imagine sexual feeling between our parents, let alone our...

Dear Cousin,

 

Ratty Rooter walks disconsolately across the soggy yard, while a slow, persistent rain falls upon him. Mom always said that we were in for an all day rain when the chickens stayed out in it and didn't seek shelter. He is a pitiful creature. Before we took the other five roosters away, they had picked on him until I had to move him to the yard. After they were gone, I figured the pullets would welcome him with open wings. They didn't. Before I realized it, they had pulled the...

Dear Readers,

 

My mom and dad raised seven kids. All seven of us had two to four children. Most had two. My siblings and I have often lamented the fact that we grew up in such a large family, but that none of our kids or grandkids got that chance. Well, how wrong we were. It seems that all the cousins have managed to make their own big family, which takes the place of lots of siblings, only probably better, because they are not only cousins, but friends.
