    HARMON: Checking the lights on the other side of 67

    Each time I read the obituary announcements in the paper I wonder how long it will be until, sitting somewhere on a cloud, harp in hand, trying to keep tempo with those old hymns written long ago, I see my name in print.


    HARMON: Dangers in ‘Birdland’

    It’s a dangerous world out there with predators and circumstances waiting to take or influence our young people -- and some of us. Like this mother bird I know, certain decisions can make this world fraught with danger even more dangerous.


    HARMON: Different career choices

    Yes, we turned five guys loose whose sole mission in life is to kill us. We’re going to trust Qatar for one year as to where they are and what they are doing. But, not to worry, if they’re doing something John Kerry deems inappropriate he will simply have them eliminated. I’...


    HARMON: In good and bad, family No. 1

    I suppose if you live long enough you’re going to see just about everything life has to offer. You’re going to witness births, deaths, marriages, divorces, graduations, successes and failures. You’re going to experience disappointments with relatives and friends. You’...


    HARMON: To crimp or not to crimp

    I don’t claim to be a consumer affairs expert, but I did buy one of those hoses that curl up like an accordion when you turn off the water. The expert on television told me my old hose would crimp with the water running and crimping, according to the experts, is just about the worst thing...


    HARMON: A not so thoughtful surprise birthday card

    “Happy Birthday to You,” the card read and I couldn’t wait to see who had remembered me on my special day. An event that went pretty much unheralded 67 years ago, probably known only to mom and dad as they welcomed me into the world in 1947, the year Tupperware parties and the...


    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.
