1. Oklahoma's Roosevelt Bridge

2. Telephones: 50 Years of Change
Telephones: 50 Years of Change
Telephones, and telephone service, have changed dramatically over the past 50 years. For people under age 30, fifty years is a long, long time. People my age, over 65, usually think it went by in a flash.. My first job out of high school, exactly 50 years ago in 1959, was as a telephone operator...

4. Rosh Hashanah: Jewish New Year
Rosh Hashanah: Jewish New Year
Rosh Hashanah is not something for me to write about because I have extensive knowledge of the subject but because I would like to learn much more.

5. Lebanon Oklahoma Is Our Home
Lebanon Oklahoma Is Our Home
Talk about a culture shock, we came from spending 20 years working at a university and moved to Lebanon, Oklahoma. A comparison might be drawn to going back in time 20 years, and if you are thinking this is a bad thing you are wrong. Not that we didn't love the large city and the university, but ...

8. Dogs Bonding, Loss and Sunsets
Dogs Bonding, Loss and Sunsets
My preference is for dog stories to have a happy ending. This is about two dogs, Boots and Shay, who had a special bond - very tightly woven until Boots developed sudden on-set HGE or hemorrhagic gastroenteritis and died within hours. I want to start their story at the beginning. Boots was dumpe...

9. Bonding With A Doberman
Bonding With A Doberman
The young red doberman female was a beautiful dog, if you looked at her with eyes of love - for anyone else, she was just a bag of bones stretched over a dog's body. I saw her as I volunteered at our city's animal shelter. Volunteers didn't stay long, I was no exception. I have always loved dogs...

11. Weight Watchers is The Best

12. Rescue Ranch: Our Dream Realized
Nine feet fit under our kitchen table, two two-legged and 5 four-legged. My husband, who sometimes feels like Noah, says "Why do they think they have to have a bite everytime I do?"

13. Wish We'd Done It Differently
He wasn't a purebred dog, he wasn't even my special dog, but I really miss him. He hated for me to swat flies ... the bang of a flyswatter may have reminded him of past abuse. He would bark until I stopped using the flyswatter. He loved treats. Each of our dogs get one dog treat before lights-o...

My eyes filled with tears and I batted them away quickly and bit my lip.

This happened over and over until I found a job I wanted badly and I had to conquer ...
