Tip your hats to those who serve locally

  You know, over the years I’ve written well over 1,800 of these Don’t Rush Me columns. I’ve told jokes, I have stood on my soapbox and opined. I’ve tried to stir your emotions, to bend you to my will whether I wanted to make you cry, laugh or get mad at something. The one […]

There is a way to healing – moving forward

There is a way to healing – moving forward

  This week I talked with two people – one for a story, another who visited me to drop off something she had written from her heart which she wanted to share. As always, sometimes there are no coincidences. Life lines up encounters for a reason and the reason these two spoke with me is […]

You know you’re getting old when . . .

You know you’re getting old when . . .

There were a couple of things that happened to your hero recently that really drove home the point that, dang, I’m getting old.

Never (ever) underestimate the ‘power’ of Don

  I’ve said it before and I will go out on yet another limb, never, under any circumstance, discount the awesomeness and the power of your hero, me . . . Dandy Don Rush. By the end of this chapter into the hallowed annals of Don’t Rushmedom, you will take me seriously and if you’re […]

Oh, I wish I was an Oscar Mayer wiener…

Oh, I wish I was an Oscar Mayer wiener…

I really haven’t listened to music on the radio since about 1982. Music started to change back then (or maybe it was me), so I started listening to talk radio versus music stations. I tuned my car’s radio to WWJ, WJR and I think there was a sports talk radio on 1270 AM, too. Yup, […]
