I got a very chilly reception this morning. It wasn't that the cat and the dog weren't happy to see me and get fed. It's just that when I put them outside, I was met by a cold blast of air. It was 48 degrees and windy and my blood is thin from the warm Arkansas summer. I wore a long sleeved shirt to work for the first time in a long time.
I have mixed emotions about fall. I love the cooler weather and the beautiful fall colors that we have here, but I don't like winter and cold weather. Fall means that Winter is right around the corner.
The sun is out and it is warming up. Looks like it's going to be a great day!

I was born in 1956 in Madison, Tennessee, while my parents were attending Madison College. I grew up along the Front Range in Colorado, attending schools in Longmont, Brighton, Boulder and Loveland, Colorado. Two years after graduating from Campion Academy, I married my sweetheart, Regina. We lived in Loveland, Colorado for six years before moving to Mena in western Arkansas.
I love the people of Mena and the friendly easy going way of life here. I have owned and operated my own business since moving to Mena. I enjoy the natural beauty of western Arkansas and being out of doors.
My newspaper column in The Mena Star, An Arkie’s Faith, premiered on January 7, 2016. In March 2017, I published my first book, titled The Little Things - Devotionals from a small town, using articles from the column. I published the second book in the Devotionals from a small town series, titled In the Fog, in December 2017.
