  • Arising to fearlessness: Get up and do not be afraid

    I live in a Southern retirement area where golf courses are as enticingly prevalent as the gray-white heads and arthritic limbs they lured into residence. The sunshine, blue skies, and laid-back lifestyle are hypnotic. Everyone and everything moves at a slighter slower pace.

    Occasionally in Fran’s columns, she refers to “Hubby Dear” as either making a suggestion or crossing over the boarders of her guarded domain. To her faithful readers, I must confess that at the present moment, the end of the pen is in hubby’s hands. She might not rejoice at that.

  • The women of the world pose a serious question: How many loaves have you?

    I can still smell the yeasty, sweet, enticing aroma of baking bread as the bus ride took us past the Wonder Bread Bakery in East Hartford, Conn. Probably a mile or two before we spotted the factory, the odors bathed us, encasing us in a comforting fragrance. It was far more than the scent of an irretrievable past. It was a reminder that simple things are not to be trashed.
