Sins of omission

WASHINGTON -- Among the many rules I grew up with, two stand out. The first was never call someone a liar, which was considered the worst possible character indictment one could issue. The accuser had best be prepared to fight or be fleet of foot.

Stress, love, patience and ‘sucking in’

This weekend, I went with my dear friend, Jody, and a few of her family members and one other friend to make a very important purchase for her. Yes, I'm talking about wedding dress shopping.

My 9-year-old twins were "debating" over who would put on their grandfather's United States Marine Corp uniform first and who would it fit best. Gender and age won out on the uniform; however, the loser would be first to hold granddad's Marine KA-BAR knife. Of course, capturing this on a cell phone was quickly requested and answered.
