"Oooooohhh I just have to tell you, I got stuck with writing Bertha Wayne's column again. I don't mean to complain but writing her stuff is getting me backed up with my own stuff. I have to do the Scouting Smoke Signals column AND the Kampfire Kookin' recipes. AND the Veterans' Page, AND the Community Calendar, AND the Waynedale Scribes Corner, AND Woods & Waters, AND sometimes the In Faith Column, AND I...

I recently saw How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days an incredibly cute and funny romantic comedy staring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey. It is about a columnist writing a feature entitled "How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days". She victimizes an advertiser who made a bet that he can make a woman fall in love with him in ten days. Hudson is definitely her mother's (Goldie Hawn) daughter in this film which made me laugh so hard I about cried. McConaughey is adorable and very funny as well. (I only wish he...

My heart starts racing, I hold my breath, I sit on the edge of my seat and then comes the inevitable scream, followed by a laugh of relief and hysteria. Scary movies are fun, being scared is fun.

So, I dragged them on (duh duh dah...gasp) The Return of the Super Spooky Double Feature.

On a dark and dreary day in February, I, the...

"Oooooohhh I just have to tell you, this week I'm writing Mrs. Wayne W. Dale's column for her because she packed up her tubby hubby and went to where, as she put it, "The sunshine can flow all over my body like life giving rain to a tomato plant," and referred to her tubby hubby as a luscious little turnip. I'm not sure what all that meant but I think she is going to one of those FREE BEACHES down south where all you have to wear is a smile. She told me to go out to eat and then report on...
