When my friend Donna told me one of the highlights of her year was when she and I went mud bogging on a four-wheeler with no brakes, it made me stop and think: life is all about your adventures.
I will be the first to admit that I really do love the Statesboro Mall. I don't care that the Georgia Southern student body fondly refers to it as the Statesboro Small, it is still the first large retail shopping development built in Statesboro, and for that reason, it remains near and dear to my heart.
I set the alarm for 3:15 a.m. The lunar eclipse, I understood, would be most visible to those of us at approximately 32 degrees 22 minutes 2 seconds north latitude and 081 degrees, 53 minutes 2 seconds west longitude at exactly 3:17 a.m. Two minutes would be just enough time to throw back the covers, throw on a bathrobe, throw open the door and dash into the front yard.

"I hated my work. Because when I die I will leave all I have done to a complete stranger who might be competent or a complete idiot. I will have spent a lifetime on work which will be given away. What a waste!" (My translation of Ecclesiastes 2:18-19).
A few weeks ago, I was genuinely saddened when the Flowers Discount Bakery store on North Zetterower Avenue in Statesboro closed. It was my "go to" place for all kinds of bakery products when I was feeding a large crowd.

Seemingly every shade of green imaginable puts on a show just for the month of April before fading and dulling as summer approaches. New life springs forth: buds and blossoms, chicks and bunnies, an empty tomb and the Resurrection.
