Next time you see me on the street, be sure to ask about my attention deficit disorder (ADD), or my spinach recipe or my dogs. I have a bike. Do you like TV? I saw a rock. Hi. Â
This is the way my mind works most of the time and itâ€™s as confusing to me as to my friends and family. My ADD has gotten so bad,Â I should qualify for a handicap parking pass.

Dateline: January. Itâ€™s the time of year for making resolutions. Or not.Â
Iâ€™m again sharing with you another painting and story about Catherine Yeates, my baby nurse. I captured Catherine slowly strolling along Greensboro Street on the very last day of Aug. 31, 1984. Glance quickly at the entire painting, and feel the humid, sweltering and almost unbearable heat in the hottest month of the entire year in Mississippi.
I was born a skeptic. The weather man says it will snow and I scoff because, frankly, it typically only snows when there has been no mention of it in the forecast.

With the winter months still ahead, Mississippi State University graduate student Kent Sparrow is putting a new twist on a classic cold-weather dish: chili.
Growing up with a family dedicated to good food, Sparrow said he discovered this recipe last year.

The Reed Family Holiday Hootenannie was a long one this year. (That may not be how you spell hootenannie, but since we had a Nannie with us, thatâ€™s what Iâ€™m going with.)Â

As I write this column in the increasing light of a still-optimistic January morning, I think of my new favorite quote, by Thoreau of all people:
â€śRise free from care before the dawn and seek adventures.â€ť
Check and check.Â Now to find some adventuresâ€¦
I am very delighted and happy to share with you one of my very favorite portraits. The medium I used was water color on a 14 inch by 20 inch hard water color board. I hope that you will love this painting and story as much as I loved having the honor of presenting it to you today.
