There is plenty to do in Monroe on this last weekend of the summer holidays, beginning with Food Truck Friday and Movie at the Mill.
I’ve been married now for 3,129.285 years. So it seems. Things that happened before I got married seem somewhat unreal, almost like they are memories of a movie I once saw rather than things that actually happened to me. So, needless to say, the honeymoon stage is over. Way over. My husband and I have […]
I don’t know why anyone bothers watching the weather this time of year. This is Atlanta. This is mid-July. I can say without any sort of doubt whatsoever, that it is going to be hot outside. Really hot. Convection oven hot. And humid, with air so thick you can cut it into slices and spread […]
My Mom is not that old, considering how old I am and how old her grandchildren are. I won’t tell you how old she is, for fear that she reads this and cuts me out of the will, but suffice it to say that it has not yet been a decade since she threw herself […]
There has been a family of bats residing behind the shutters on the porch of my house on Lake Oconee for more than a year now. They don’t really bother me much. I like that they eat bugs. I like that they don’t bother anyone during the day, and during the night they look awfully […]
My house has a history with armadillos. In fact, the name of my next book, currently in the production stages, is “The Armadillo, The Pickaxe, and the Laundry Basket,” based on the time when an armadillo tunneled its way into my bedroom one night. As it turned out, the armadillo and his army of armadillo […]

Among the many words you wouldn’t think need defining, the word “Person” is one of them.
When the vast majority of us take that step towards the American Dream and purchase a house, we are required along the way to sign seventy-six billion pieces of paper, give or take. Although I have never once advised anyone to sign anything they haven’t read and understood, I am realistic enough to know that virtually no one has actually read all the details of these papers.
There are a lot of questions about speed detection devices (laser and radar) and a lot of misconceptions, so I thought I’d use this week’s column to clear up some confusion.
Georgia’s “move over law,” requiring drivers to change lanes to avoid driving next to a police car or other emergency vehicle stopped on the side of the road, has been expanded as of July 1st of this year.
When people get divorced and there are children involved, even in the most amicable of situations it is nearly impossible to predict how things will shake out in the future. Especially if the children are younger, and the order or settlement agreement is expected to hold for a decade or more. Situations change. Children’s needs change as they get older. The parents’ expectations change as they settle into a divorced state. Mom or Dad might remarry, and there might be step-siblings to work around. Someone might move.
