Nature comes to my emotional rescue

Ahh, Easter morning. If my dad were still around, I would be calling him first thing and instead of saying hello, he would say, “He has risen.” And my response would always be, “He has risen indeed.”

Nature makes me feel better

I know everyone has their ups and downs and, with that said, I am smack dab in the middle of my second cold of the year and, boy, oh boy, does it drag me down. I usually don’t get colds, but if I do it almost always is a real doozy that knocks me flat on my rear end.

Fishing right is hard work

I guess it’s because I write an outdoor column that people are always coming up to me saying, “Wow, you are soooo lucky. You get to fish every day, see all kinds of cool stuff. I would trade places with you in a heartbeat!”

Reader emails jolt my memory

It seems that every time I write about the good ol’ days here in the Lowcountry, I sure do get a lot of emails and phone calls. Many come from old-timers but, oddly enough, newbies to our area love to hear what it used to be like around these parts.

I’m in the mood for longer days

I took a few minutes Googling sayings that centered on the word “mood.” Needless to say, there were thousands of quotes regarding moods. Good moods, bad moods, blah moods, upbeat moods — the list just went on and on.

It’s time to get on my soapbox

If you missed my column last week, I admitted that I had become boring in my writing. That said, I rambled on about conversations I had with a pileated woodpecker and an owl. Since then, I have received e-mails and phone calls all asking me the same question: “What drug were you on when you wrote that?”
