The wheezing season is upon us
It’s the wheezing season, and if I’d known I’d need to blow my nose this many times every spring, I’d have sprung for some Kleenex stock and I’d be retired on a beach somewhere with a girl in a bikini bringing me drinks with umbrellas in them instead of writing this column for you.

Twenty years of springer spaniels living at my house
Someone pointed out to me this week that it’s been 20 years since I got my first springer spaniel. Time really has a way of marching on, doesn’t it?

To use a top sheet or not. That is the question.
I like to think my little effort here each week helps you stay on top of the biggest, most pressing issues of the day, and today, I hope to continue that.

Remembering Zell Miller, mountain man, maverick, statesman
I was flying in a Georgia State Patrol helicopter with then-Gov. Zell Miller and Macon Mayor Tommy Olmstead, surveying a city flooded by waters from the Ocmulgee River in 1994. The two men were talking about how the state could help the city and I, a young political reporter for the Macon newspaper, got to go along for the ride.

Getting to the bottom of coffee-gate
When my brother and I were little, we were big fans of Kool-Aid and sweet tea.

Don't look now, but your cat may be trying to kill you
I’m a dog person. You know that. Milly, the liver and white springer spaniel who lives at my house, has been living here for four years this week.

I finally know what I am. I'm a 'wordie'
Do you know what someone who loves words is called? A wordie. Honestly. I know this because “wordie” is one of the 850 new words that Merriam-Webster, the folks that put the dictionary together, have added to the book this year.

No reason to mess with The Real Thing
I’m not sure my grandmother ever forgave the Coca-Cola Co. for New Coke. I know she never forgave them for discontinuing those six-and-a-half-ounce glass bottles.
