My Great Adventure, Part Two

By G. E. Shuman If you happen to be a faithful follower of my column, then you will understand what the title of this installment means. If you are a more normal person, and never read my stuff, you may not. If you do remember, and provided you care to, I have been looking forward to a trip south, to visit my mom in Florida, and to drive back my ‘b...

My Unbelievable, Incredible, Breakfast Muffins

By G. E. Shuman I am not a ‘sweet’ person, especially at breakfast time. Just ask my wife if you don’t believe me. Bacon and eggs is a very good breakfast, to me, so is a couple of sausage burritos from my friendly neighborhood McSomething restaurant, but anything with any kind of sugar or maple syrup, (sorry native Vermonters) is really more than...

My Great Adventure

By G. E. Shuman I will soon be embarking on a great adventure; at least it is a great one from my perspective. Other people have certainly been on bigger adventures, but this one is going to be fun. I am not heading for the top of Mount Everest, (thankfully), or to the moon, (I wish), but what I am doing is going to be pretty exciting for me. Many...

Standing in Line

By G. E. Shuman I remember that, many years ago, a pastor friend of mine said that he got many of his best sermon ideas from tea bags. He wasn’t reading tea leaves or anything, but reading the tags that a certain brand of tea uses on their tea bags. You know, he was talking about the ones with the little proverbial sayings on them. Anyway, at the t...

Why I Don’t Run

By G. E. Shuman I have never been a runner. In fact, I’m not even a fast walker, and I never have been. When I was a child I probably used to run, I think, or, maybe not. I remember once telling a young friend that I tried running, and didn’t like it. He laughed. Truthfully, I have used that line throughout adulthood, too, and it still gets a laugh...

My Little Gray Friends

By G. E. Shuman Okay, so, if you have read many of my previous columns, you have probably already guessed who my little gray friends are. If not, your wait is over, as I’m going to tell you who they are, right now. For several years, I have been feeding the gray squirrels (See, I told you already.) that live in the trees behind our house. Some peop...

Choices

By G. E. Shuman One evening last week I had a great phone conversation with one of my five favorite adult children. (I have five adult children, and they are all my favorites.) Cathy occasionally calls me on a weekday evening, when her busy day is winding down, and mine is doing the same. I love conversations and meetings with all of my children, a...

A Message from Your Very Recent Past

By G. E. Shuman When you read this in the paper, you will learn that you and I, right now, from both of our perspectives, are actually in two different times. We aren’t in two different time zones, not unless you live further west than do most of my readers. We are, literally, in two different times. You see, you, as you live and breathe in the day...

Stringing Popcorn

By G. E. Shuman When I was a child, a long time ago, in a galaxy far away, many things were different than they are today. That statement seems to go without saying, but I still said it. The world has changed so much since then. Traditions, celebrations, and even seasonal decorations are not the way they once were. I’m not sure if such changes are...

You Will Not Hear It Fall

By G. E. Shuman Something is coming to New England, in a very short time. We receive it every year, and if it has not arrived by the time this issue of the World is published, don’t worry. It will be here soon enough. You probably are already aware that the ‘something’ I’m referring to here, is snow. Snow first appears in the North, each late fall...
