  • Today I had one of those moments when I thought I had everything under control. That was my first big mistake. My second was thinking I knew where the one vital piece of paperwork I needed was sitting. As you can probably guess, it was not there.
    Panic ensued. Like most men would do, I called my wife because she always knows where everything is. But then again, the mess in my office could probably qualify for federal disaster relief funding, so I was grasping at straws.
    To my disappointment, but not my surprise, she only thought of the places I had already looked.

  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    Do you know of any golfing gadgets or equipment that can help senior golfers? My 78-year-old dad loves to play golf, but arthritis in his hands makes griping the club difficult. He also has a hard time bending over to tee up or retrieve the ball. Is there anything out there that can help?

    Dear Helpful,

  • Have you ever been in a conversation with someone, whether spouse, friend or family member, and you just knew that the person you were addressing was not listening, yet they were looking at you the whole time you were talking?

  • We have all asked the question “why hasn’t my plant bloomed?” Sometimes the answer is as simple as not enough sunlight, not old enough, not cold enough or hot enough, etc. In fact it could be as simple as a little digging and dividing for some renewed blooming attitude.

  • No question about it, 2012 is proving to be a record breaker where heat and drought are concerned. You’ll want to make some adjustments due to the weather to take care of your horses this summer. It’s very important to also consider what you will need to feed them later on this year. Even though we have had some rain here in Spencer County recently, you still need to be concerned with what the rest of the summer may hold.
