Good Morning! What a stormy night.  It looks as if Salem missed most of the bad stuff.  I did awake to wind and hail, heavy rain, but no damage I have noticed.  Around the area however folks did not have the same experience.  There will be lots of picking up and rebuilding to do.  The weather is crazy with 70’s…

Good Morning! The weather has turned again.  It was a windy run with a little mist.  What a weekend!  We were in Columbia for a little time with the kids.  Carol of course stayed to babysit while I returned for Sunday morning. Lets just say she was a bit tired when she arrived last night.  We had a wonderful surprise…

Good Morning! A wonderful sunny day in Salem.  Our day started early and it was cold, but looks to be a nicer day.  We are still wrangling with the loss of KSDK from our cable lineup.  They were the only non Springfield news we had and for us that is a big deal.  We have…

Good Morning! I received a text a little after 4:00 am that Mary Lou Cotner had passed away.  Please keep Jimmy and all of Mary Lou’s family in your prayers.  She died at home in the loving care of her family.  We had a beautiful Ash Wednesday Service, so thankful to enter Lent with such an event.  Lent is…

Good Morning! I was in Springfield Tuesday, the drive back was fine, but the sky was so dark it looked like the sky was closing in. A stormy night around the state.  We need to be in prayer for all the victims of the storms.  This is Ash Wednesday, we will have services tonight at…

Good Morning! A crisp Monday morning as we approach the end of February.  I have a fire in the fireplace, but they are saying 70 by Wednesday.  You have to love Missouri weather.  The new thing must be to make major errors at award shows.  Last night they gave best picture to the wrong show, then had to fix…

Good Morning! A foggy morning again.  The news indicated we are about as foggy as it gets in this area.  I am amazed that we are almost to Ash Wednesday.  The discussion last night was what to do for Lent.  What will you give up or add?  The possibilities are endless, but keep in mind the greater…

Good Morning! A foggy morning, but a nice morning.  Running in this is almost perfect.  I had an interesting drive back from Winona last night, really foggy, but no deer thankfully.  We approach the last weekend in February and I can see spring.  I am hopeful for a good snow before spring settles in, but…

Good Morning! What a wonderful rain!  It was a little noisy and the pups were a bit nervous, actually Mo was a bit nervous, but we needed rain.  The yard guys cleaned up the leaves yesterday in our yard and got the leaves off the fence.  It was so dusty, this really settled the dust. …
