On the Other Hand
On the Other Hand — A long winter's nap PDF Print
Saturday, March 01, 2014 9:00 PM

This column is on a topic near and dear to my heart — naps. I love naps. Not just any ol’ nap. A good nap.

Nothing ruins a nap quite like waking up and feeling more tired than when you laid down. Ugh! What a huge waste of time.

What’s all the ‘flap’ about? PDF Print

You all know of my slow descent into Facebook oblivion. I was resistant and claimed I would never be on Facebook and questioned what did I want or need to do that for. And then I created a Facebook account and hundreds of friends and thousands of hours invested in reading posts, hitting “like” and playing Words With Friends and Bejeweled Blitz later, I don’t know what I ever did without it.

That is one thing I will never be able to say about “Flappy Bird.”

“Flappy Bird” is a simple game in which users fly a small bird through a course of pipes. If the bird touches the pipes or the ground, it dies.

“Flappy Bird” was originally released for the iPhone in May but didn’t become the top free iPhone app until mid-January, following a surge in popularity that seems to have kicked off in early December.

The Spencer family saw the passing of its patriarch this week. We laid Uncle Randy to rest on Friday. He was the eldest of the three Spencer brothers with my father-in-law Max the middle boy and Uncle Norm the baby. Their sister, Vivienne, was gone long before I joined the clan.

This is a letter to Phil and Chuck.

Not the bearded scamp on Duck Dynasty and the martial arts and fitness guru but rather Punxsutawney Phil and Buckeye Chuck.

I met her for the first time on Friday. Her eyes were warm chocolate brown. Her ears were her best feature, long and soft as velvet. Her warm body makes you melt when you give her a snuggle. Her feet looked impossibly big for her small body.

Lady Bird. A beautiful specimen. A full-blooded Basset Hound.

She was the lady of the day. Everyone was talking to her, about her or taking objects away from her curious, sharp-toothed mouth. She ruled and she knew it.
