  • COLUMN: Circus is for pony lovers

    My husband and I took our daughter to the circus.

    Sounds simple, right? Wrong. From the moment we pulled into the fairgrounds she had her mind made up. She cared nothing about the circus and everything about the pony rides offered outside.

    Screaming at the top of her lungs in excitement she was practically begging to ride the animals.

  • COLUMN: Shopper's confidence takes a hit at gun show

    I am not a great shopper.

    My husband Bud would disagree. But that’s because he is a man and has little concept of what a real shopper is like. He can walk in Wal-Mart, go directly to his favorite jar of peanut butter, pick it up, walk directly to the checkout and be done.

    It’s almost Old Testament in its intensity: “Thou shalt go directly to the Jif. Thou shalt not look to the left, nor to the right, lest thou be tempted.”

    I enjoy looking – and buying when something calls to me. But the looking – that’s key.
