What I did for summer vacation

This summer I took a vacation from writing this column, but here are some observations from that period. My extended time off taught me to look at retirement in a new way. I used to feel sorry for people who reached retirement age because it signaled getting old. But during my vacation from the column, […]

Civilian jobs hold no interest

Dear Annie: I am a 23-year-old man. I served in the army and deployed to Afghanistan. I was medically discharged for PTSD about two years ago. I’m currently going to school to be a firefighter, but I’m afraid I’ve picked this field not because it interests me, but because I cannot go back into the […]

Two years ago Sunday, I married my best friend. And I’m thrilled to report that marriage hasn’t changed that. Known as The Cutest Man In The World (TCMITW) to those of you who’ve followed this thread for the last decade or so, Joe is proof positive that soulmates really do exist. I know I’ve found […]

When nature calls, you can’t put it on hold

DebraDeAngeloW The best part of last week’s story about my adventures in radio commercials is the part I didn’t tell: getting there. But first, some context. I have the bladder of a hamster. And my urgency ratio is directly linked to my stress level. The higher the stress, the greater the urgency. If I’m anxious […]

Trip to Gettysburg not my usual type of vacation

Enterprise columnist Whenever I have pictured myself as a soldier, something IÕve done many times over the years, especially during the Vietnam era, IÕve imagined myself feeling totally out of place in war. I imagine myself going along with whatever IÕm supposed to do, because IÕm basically obedient and a conformist, but keeping my thoughts […]

Dear Annie: I am one of five sisters. We are all adults with children of our own. One lives in New Jersey and the others live in Florida, three of us in the same city. My sister, “Claire,” lives two hours away. Three years ago, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. With good doctors and […]
