LIKE A ROCK

Details

This year Bob Seger will celebrate his tenth anniversary as an inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The honor is his because of his hardscrabble, up-by-the-bootstraps life story; the way he can forge lyrics that are a combination of personal autobiography and everyman's experience; and of course, there is the legendary intensity with which he delivers his melodies.

Of equal legend are his songs: "Turn the Page," "Night Moves," "We've Got Tonight," and "Still the Same" – tunes that...

LOVE THREAD - AROUND THE FRAME

Details Dana enjoys the quilt her mother made that connects her to the people important to her by a single red thread.

Happy Valentine's Day! After all of the high winds and record-breaking low temperatures, it's good to focus on something warm and fuzzy like Valentine's Day.

About ten years ago I quilted a special quilt for a young Chinese girl adopted by Vince Maloney and Karen Ericson. While going through the adoption process, Karen starts cross-stitching blocks using black thread on white aida fabric. She sews Chinese symbols for all of the good things she wants her yet unknown child to experience.

WILLIWE IS MISSING - NEWS FROM THE HILLS

Details

Willie is missing. Never was a dog more loved, or more pampered. He was actually a squirrel dog, and one of the best. But he was more than that. He truly was man's best friend, and more.

He was mostly a Norwegian, with a little Feist mixed in. He was out of Criss' squirrel dog, and a Norwegian mother. Criss had promised daughter Patty a puppy, and as soon as he was weaned, she took him. Her husband Bob was not a bit enthused about raising a pup, and short of forbidding her, he discouraged...

MY DUCK DYNASTY NEIGHBORS

Details

With record breaking cold temperatures in the Mid-West it seemed a good time to turn people's thoughts to a warmer part of the country and make a personal admission at the same time. Though my wife grew up in Fort Wayne and it's been a second home of mine for over twenty years, I admit it...it's true...I grew up in West Monroe, Louisiana with the Duck Dynasty guys. It's not like we were hunting buddies or spent time together driving our four-wheel drives in the mud holes down in the swamps, but...

CABBAGE PATCH SUPPER - NEWS FROM THE HILLS

Details

It is amazing how a split second occurrence can alter a person's life. Two days before Christmas, I was looking forward to Christmas Eve and our 59th anniversary. Also, I was running through my mind the menu for Christmas Day and the various relatives that would be there.

You know that satisfied feeling that comes before Christmas when the house is clean and decorated, the gifts all wrapped and ready and the holiday food ready to be prepared? Well, I hadn't quite reached that apex yet, but I...

THE NINE MILE UMC LADIES AID AND THEIR 1906 QUILT - AROUND THE FRAME

Details The crazy quilt made by the Ladies Aid members of the Nine Mile UMC church stands as a testament to the ladies who created it over a century ago.

It was February 7, 1906 when the women members of the Nine Mile United Methodist Church met at the home of Mrs. Levan to organize and adopt the constitution for their aid society.

The original neatly written constitution states:
I.We agree to organize ourselves into a band of Christian workers to be known as the "Ladies Aid of Liberty Class". The object being to aid in the work of the church both temporal and spiritual.

II.The officers shall consist of a President, Secretary, Treasurer and two...
