    HARMON: Of dogs and extended family

    We call them “extended” families and there are a lot of them around these days, including ones with numerous dogs.


    HARMON: Little one, big dreams

    The grandson arrived screaming into the light at 7 pounds and 21 inches. I don’t think he was excited about leaving the warmth and coziness of his mother’s womb. Thank goodness we don’t remember being birthed; it would remind you -- if you could remember -- of a ride through...


    HARMON: Acting in our behalf?

    These are scary times politically, and I’m not sure if many of our elected officials are up to the task for one simple reason. They don’t know us anymore. Many of them don’t live around “we the people,” preferring to live in places safer and away from us and seldom...


    HARMON: New member freshens old memories

    By the time you read this I will be a grandfather, living in the camper out back, or looking for the Valium bottle. The boy is supposedly “on the way,” and is no longer referred to as “it” but “Harmon.” That’s his name.


    HARMON: Trouble sleeping

    What is it about growing older that keeps you awake when you know you should be sleeping?


    HARMON: Mumbling and stumbling

    Mumbling will get you in trouble. I’m either mumbling or she needs a hearing aid. Maybe we both need hearing aids because the wife is starting to hear things I don’t actually say and I’m hearing things I wish I hadn’t.


    HARMON: A 30-yard walk

    We pulled into the Piggly Wiggly, my soon to be 92-year-old mother and me, parked a few slots down the row and watched a perfectly healthy looking, 40-something man get out of his car in the “handicapped” spot and saunter into the store.


    HARMON: Playing with ‘Team Human’

    Phil Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” fame said some things a little differently than I might have said them, but the First Amendment says he could say them any way he chose to and so it’s done. The comments about gay folks, in particular, were a might graphic, but isn’t that...


    HARMON: Seeking the best of us

    I met a nice lady at a tennis function over at Reynolds Plantation the other day. She said, “Hey, you’re the guy that writes about dogs.” Some folks don’t like dogs, but the older I get, the more I enjoy the company of a dog or watching birds


    Harmon: A high school reunion not for the aged

    Last week, I found myself in a room full of strangers at what I believe was my 50-some-odd high school disunion -- the most dysfunctional function I’ve ever attended. I wandered in about 6:15, the buffet had started at 5:30 but I wasn’t in much of a hurry. I knew that a huge dose of...
