    Danny Tyree|Nov 9, 2023

    I had forgotten about it, but my father once reminisced about finding elementary-school-aged me habitually “watching” TV with my back turned to the set. He said I explained that I could imagine more interesting scenes in my mind. The real demonstration of my creativity was that I could conjure a more tactful response than “How about springing for a color TV, Ebenezer?” I still have trouble giving the boob tube my undivided attention. My wife and I dearly enjoy certain programs; they are not just...

    Well it is a beautiful, but cold morning here in our little valley, the sun is shining and the sky is blue.
