The wonder of Wonder Woman

Let's get something straight right from the start: I did not go see Wonder Woman because I wanted to ogle Gal Gadot's body. I certainly didn't take my teenage sons and two of their friends to see it so they could be titillated by her Amazon costume.

From T.V. star to preacher

Mama was always proud for people who were able to pull themselves up and do well in life. She rooted for them, bragged on them and delighted in their happiness and happenings.

“We’re just out walking...”

It was early in my relationship with my mother-in-law, Rose Mary, when I concluded the two of us were destined to be more like mother and daughter, or two loving friends who just happened to be smitten with the same guy. I remember telling her the title of "mother-in-law" didn't seem to genuinely describe the admiration I had for her. So from that moment on, I would introduce her, not as my "mother-in-law," but as my husband's mother, Rose Mary or as "Tete", the name used by her 24 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Hillary unbound

WASHINGTON -- Well, Hillary Clinton isn't going gently. That may be understandable, but it's not smart -- not for Clinton, not for her party and not for other female candidates.

Death’s final scene

My husband, many times, had written of death and created numerous dying scenes in the make-believe world of television. Once he had won an Emmy for it. But death in Hollywood is often different than the way it is truly delivered.

Images of the Kershaw/Cornwallis house

If you wanted to photograph a Camden building or scene before the Civil War, what would you photograph? We only know of three photographers chose to photograph: the Kershaw/Cornwallis House about 1858, the construction of the second town clock and King Haiglar tower about 1859 and the cadets in full uniform in front of Peck's Academy in early 1861.

The janitor

The elementary school in which I received my 1st through 6th grade learning was a long, straight brick building with cement steps, an auditorium with heavy, red velvet drapes, a tiny library guarded by a grumpy, gray-headed spinster and a cafeteria that was in the basement down a flight of creaky wooden steps.

Staying in bed

As I see it, because I've studied quite a bit on this, my day goes off the rails pretty much as soon as I get out of bed. Sometimes it is a kind day so I can get through a cup of coffee and morning news before things start a-changin' and my plans disappear like morning dew in the summer's heat.
