  • I’ve been thinking about Ham Days, and there are so many fond memories from days gone by. The first year that my husband, Steve Lowery, worked at The Lebanon Enterprise, 1979, I couldn’t go to the parade or anything else during Ham Days. Our twins, Rachel and Stevie, had only just come home from the hospital after their premature birth, and I was, to put it mildly, busy.

  • Now that fall is officially here it’s time to start planting fall flowers such as pansies, mums, and ornamental cabbage and kale. My favorite fall flower is pansy mainly because it is one of those tough little plants that will actually give you flowers periodically in winter as well as next spring. Pansies are not perennials as they hate hot weather but do reliably overwinter in Kentucky to give us two seasons of bloom, or three if you count the few flowers that pop up in winter.

    You can often see it in their eyes, if you take the time to look: That far away gaze tells you they are somewhere else - maybe in the future or the past but not the present.

    Or sometimes their eyes dart this way and that, like those of a trapped animal searching for an escape route.
