Walks are wonderful with warm weather

By Lynn Moncus As the last leaves are blowing off the trees, those of us who are a bit opposed to cold weather are now awaiting the “coming of the green” and return of warm weather. Sunday’s cold north wind really got our attention as Aggie and I took our walk in the country. Neither […]

Finally, some rains to coax out nature’s beauty

By Lynn Moncus Those of us who are of the land just naturally have to pause to admire the beauty whenever we have an opportunity. Last Sunday provided just that chance while Aggie and I were out for our ride. We had gone to the plains for a little while because we could see that […]

A four-legged view of four wheels

By Aggie Moncus The slave is off to have coffee with friends so I am going to do some writing in order to get this column out of the way before she returns to complain that she doesn’t have a subject this week. If she would let me write more frequently, she wouldn’t have to […]

Our thinnest memories of youth arise from snapshots

By Lynn Moncus Recently, one of my former students and close friends, Lucy Nials, handed me copies of some snapshots she had taken of Mother and me in 1957. What a shock! What happened to that young person in those pictures? Few people would recognize her now, and she hardly recognizes herself after all these […]

Your computer has a long memory

It’s up to each of us to make the best of 2008

By Lynn Moncus We seem to change calendars all too frequently as the years pass more rapidly than ever. ‘Tis hard to believe that we have really gone through 12 months since we last hung a new calendar, but according to the one on the wall, we have reached the last page. As we look […]

Behavior of two-footed animals truly peculiar

By Lynn Moncus The slave is still trying to set clocks so I, Aggie, will visit with you for a nice change. Of course, I never quite understand why she feels the need to change the clocks because that just upsets our schedules and causes both of us to be just a bit short tempered. […]

Giving way to herd instinct is long way from easy chair

By Aggie Moncus The slave decided I, Aggie, could do the writing this week because she was otherwise occupied–meaning she was too lazy to do any extra thinking. She and I really have had some good times on our Sunday walks of late because the weather has been cooler and more comfortable. She even decided […]
