Creatures of habit

“Our hope for years to come.” 

A tail thump wakes me, a wet nose brushes my cheek. Somewhere along the way I might have thought I’d go gentle into that good night, but I’ve had some four-legged friends who think otherwise.




The Road to Terezine

By LOTTIE BOGGAN,

We each march to the sound of a different drummer; it may be an age thing, but for unknown reasons, I seem to be drawn more and more to the beat of the past. The rhythm goes on, but it’s slower. On a Danube River cruise my Jackson friends and I had disembarked from our ship, the Viking Jarl, and were now in Prague.







One step ahead

“Your mother would have been dancing on the table,” a man said to me as my friends and I walked out of church.

“I was thinking the same thing,” I answered him, wondering how in the name of Tom Thunder this younger man could have known my mother that well.




Crack the whip

By LOTTIE BOGGAN,

My cruise-mate Edrie Royals and Jackson companions Margaret Vise, Ann Barksdale, Carole Kirkland and I were on a Danube River cruise and our boat had docked near Kalosca, Hungary.

The tour Edrie and I had picked out for this stop was the cowboy rodeo in Kalosca.


The cowboys need some help

By LOTTIE BOGGAN,

I can’t carry a tune in a lard bucket, but on this day I could almost hum, same song, second verse in perfect voice. A group of ladies from Jackson, Ann Barksdale, Margaret Vise, Carole Kirkland, cruisemate Edrie Royals and I were on a Danube River cruise. Our ship, the Viking Jarl had docked in Kalosca,  we would be there until late evening.
