December 2nd

Confession of a pot seller*

Walkin'

I sold the newspapers in 2000 but kept my shoulder to the grindstone for another dozen years. First, I went to college at the age of 48. After graduating, I tried part-time and substitute teaching for five years. Then Orange Hat Mowing was formed and I cut grass part-time as my own boss for a few summers. In between, I also did a little ESL teaching. By 2014, I was completely retired from everything except for my pot growing business. Instead of cutting grass I decided to grow it.

Thoughts about Christmas

Food For Thought

Sometimes, I revisit an opinion or observation in a column to revise or bring it more up to date. This week, however, I am pretty much repeating a column from 10 years ago, because it says something nearly all of us need to be reminded of. I’m not doing this because I’m too lazy to write a new column, but because I truly feel it’s important and I’m doing it far enough ahead of Christmas so, just maybe, you will have time to think about it and, I hope, do something about it.
