Black-Eyed Friday

by Glenn Starkey (@GStarkeyBooks)

Prior to Halloween I walked through a major store and observed Christmas products already intermingled with Thanksgiving items on the shelves. Goblins, pilgrims, and elves are a confusing menagerie of images when you are supposed to only be buying a bag of candy for “Trick or Treaters.”


I stopped by say hello to all you who are testing the new web site.  It has been a long time since I have done a blog.  I can be dangerous when given a place to run my mouth, er, fingers.

A Quarter's Worth of Fun

My son Nate married a beautiful young woman named Nora. Aside from being warm and loving, she makes me laugh – a lot. 
Here’s an example of why.
I was just checking into the Holiday Inn Express in Elizabeth, NC when Nora text messaged me. “Did you find my coat?”
Me: “What coat?”
Nora: “My coat that Nate left in NC.”
Me: “Where did he leave it?”
Nora: “Dunno. Airport?”
I sat down on the bed and had a good laugh before I picked up my phone to text back.
