  • One Sunday last fall, I attended the Laura Isaacs Appreciation Barbecue. Laura is a co-worker. At 24, she lives with her cat, Spock, loves Hello Kitty and ballerina flats.

    The impromptu barbecue, Cristy and Shemir's idea, was at Cristy's apartment. Shemir was the only one of us who had ever lit a barbecue fire before, so she did the honors.

    Cristy made about 10 pounds of potato salad and enough hamburger patties to feed 25 people, even though there were only about eight of us altogether.

  • Last weekend I went home. Home for me is with my husband in Florida but it's also Southern California, "the O.C."

    The occasion was my niece Jennifer's wedding. She's the first one in our family to graduate college. She's beautiful, inside and out, and smart - a high school guidance counselor for at-risk teens. Her new husband, Marc, is a rookie firefighter.

    The outdoor wedding took place in San Juan Capistrano. It had a Baja, Mexico theme. My mom and dad live in Baja.

  • Campbellsville Woman's Club had its annual Lawn & Garden Tour on Saturday. Eleven homes were a part of this year's tour.

  • We're doing the happy dance at my house these days. It started when, one day last week, I went to turn on the TV in the living room and it popped, which is never a good sound coming from a major appliance or electronic device.

    My husband had been pining for a flat-screen, high-definition TV for months and I've balked at the idea. Our TV was good enough.

    But that morning "good enough" became "dead." Later that day Barry called me at work and said, "Before you start screaming, hear me out."

  • I spent four and a half days last week with my middle finger on my left hand either in a stiff brace or taped together with a neighboring finger.

    I'm not sure what happened, but I was at work Monday, typing, and I noticed my middle finger hurt every time it hit a key and then I noticed it had turned purple. The more I typed the more it turned purple and then it turned numb.

    That's not normal, I thought, and then ignored it. I'm a firm believer in la la land. Ignore things and they'll go away. Probably. Maybe, if I hope really, really long and hard enough.

  • Recently, I cleaned out the kitchen junk drawer and came across the coveted Granola Eating Spoon. Technically, it's a sugar spoon: short and round, the perfect size for eating cereal, especially granola, because the raisins don't fall off the sides.

    Years ago, for some reason everyone in my family constantly fought over that spoon, and one person in particular went so far as to deliberately get up earlier than anyone else just to be the one to get it before anyone else could.

    It was utterly childish and sparked even more childish squabbles:
