Somehow, as fate would have it, my Uncle Ed ended up in pilot school during the WWII era  in Natchitoches, Louisiana, where he met a knockout blond, Marty Murphy.  His silver tongue and Hollywood looks convinced my dad's only sister to marry him.  That's how we got our Uncle Ed, the war hero.

Wow. Sometimes the truth hurts, doesn't it? A friend of mine, Frankie Mann, owner of Office Equipment and Supply, stopped by the office yesterday.  He's quite the businessman.  He's quite the salesman.  He's quite the honest friend.

The day didn't start very well for Cynthia.  She didn't hear the alarm going off, the kids weren't up getting ready for school, and she had thirty minutes to get them all dressed, fed, and loaded into her Explorer. Rushed is an understatement. She swore that the light was yellow when she stepped ...
