Are You Dressed Up?

I remember hearing that phrase over and over every Sunday morning when my mom and dad would get us three boys ready for church. Like most good church-goers, my family strongly adhered to the popular adage – “look your Sunday best for God.” And we did. Every Sunday, we wore clothes that we would never […]

The Secret is Caring

Good Day to you! It’s kinda nice to have someone give us a nice warm greeting each day, isn’t it? I once knocked on a door of someone’s home as I was inviting people to a special event at our church, and was quite shocked when the owner of the home opened the door and, […]

Now & Later – Part 3 of 4

So where was I? Oh yes! Now and Later candy. Yummy. Can use, re-use… even re-re-use. Only thing is – it will screw up your dental work! Man I could tell you stories of when our mouths would lock up during a Now & Later chewing episode. I remember I used to get scared as […]

So that…

“Wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world? Aaaaahhhhhnnaaeeeeyyyyyaaank!” That’s a direct quote from the blockbuster comedy film “Dumb and Dumber” starring Jim Carrey as Lloyd Christmas. It was a very funny moment but I recommend the edited version. I must admit I laughed out of my chair during that movie. But I think […]

On The Air

Many of you probably don’t know this but I was a cohost of a weekly talk show for three years on Omaha’s #1 talk station KKAR in the 1990’s called “Straight Talk”. It was a call-in show hosted by Ty Schenzel and his beautiful and über-talented wife Terri (ok Ty , if you are out […]
