  • Cancer will change one's life forever

    The "c" word is one no one wants to hear.

    It changes your life, and the lives of your friends, family and perhaps everyone who comes into contact with you.

    After interviewing the Payne family (see today's front page story), I began thinking of how cancer has impacted my life.

    It began with what appeared to be a pulled muscle. It ended with a trip to Hawaii. Tyler Payne, 17, has battled a rare form of bone cancer that affects children ages 11-16 for more than two years.

    "They thought he got hurt when we went camping," his mother, Debbie Payne, said.

    Tyler underwent a series of X-rays and other tests, but none seemed to solve his problems, which started with some swelling in his right knee.

  • What a hen!

    It was a strange funeral. Just me, my husband Bud and a one-legged chicken.

    I was blubbering like a baby; Bud was punching at the rock-hard ground with a pair of post hole diggers and the chicken, wrapped in a soft towel and sprayed with ammonia to keep the neighbor's dog away, was going in the hole.

    My sweet little Crippie chicken died. She was the daughter of Russell Crow - who also survived various maladies before being mauled by a passing opossum - layer of many large brown eggs and a good companion.
