  • America, I love this place

    Boom, boom, boom!

    The sky was full of fireworks this weekend.
    If I sat in my front yard, I could see them. If I moved to my back deck, I could see them. As I drove along U.S. 25, they were everywhere.

    It was a red, white and boom holiday.

    At church on Sunday, people were wearing their colors. The choir even sang a couple of patriotic tunes.

    OK, I’m not afraid to admit it, I tear up when I hear patriotic music. I’ve been known to get a little choked up when I pledge allegiance to the flag.

  • Lessons from a little black dress

    A few months ago I bought an LBD, a “little black dress.” All good fashionistas know that every woman needs at least one LBD in her closet, because you never know when a museum opening or semi-formal awards banquet will spontaneously break out.

    I bought it at a thrift store for only $35, but that’s not the point, neither is the fact that I will most likely never wear it.
