I first posted this in December 2015 and it remains one of my favorite DebRuns posts. I hope you enjoy!   The basement was quiet without any noise, No banging or clanging of any gym toys. Just a few empty bottles, and a little spilled water, I nervously wondered if we had a free-loading squatter. Forgetting the season, forgetting […]

A Little Girl in Search of the Perfect Christmas Tree

As a couple, Bill and I have never gone out and cut down a Christmas tree. For several years, we purchased our Christmas tree from a nursery, but eventually started buying them from our local volunteer fire department. I reasoned that the fire department would surely sell the freshest-cut trees in town. Looking back, I’m […]

Dear Running…

  Dear Running, I wasn’t looking for you; it just happened. I had wanted to try out for the basketball team, or to be a cheerleader; however to both, my parents said, “No.” It wasn’t until my older brother got his driver’s license and joined the track team, that Mom and Dad said I could try out for […]

Feeling Grateful on Thanksgiving

As sad as I am that our youngest son and our newest daughter-in-law won’t be with us this year for Thanksgiving, I’m happy that they are enjoying Thanksgiving in Florida with her family. Our oldest son, our daughter-in-law, and our grandson will be arriving this afternoon for Thanksgiving dinner after an earlier dinner with her […]

Living Happily Ever After

Please enjoy this slightly updated Deb Runs favorite as Bill and I celebrate our thirty-ninth wedding anniversary…   There once was a college freshman who threw a snowball at the window of a nearby dorm. Even though she didn’t know it at the time, inside that room was her prince charming. She started dating the cute guy inside […]
