Newsletter Vol 36 / Issue 07

Greetings Have you ever heard the phrase “And this too shall pass”? Well, that phrase is what I’m thankful for this month. It seems we’ve been going through more than our share of aches, pains, and doctor visits lately. So, we fall back on “This too shall pass.” Like Tennessee weather, if you don’t like

Greetings As you read this you will note that it’s late. I didn’t realize 3rd Tuesday was early this month (as early as it can possibly be – the 15th.) So I’m sitting here on Thursday the 10th composing a newsletter. I don’t know if I included a “What I’m Thankful For” item last month,

Newsletter Vol 36 / Issue 05

Greetings This newsletter creeped up on me. First it was more than two weeks away and now it’s past due. If time flies when you’re having fun, I must be having a hilarious time. My monthly “What I’m Thankful For” item is a no brainer – Friends. Some of my favorite friends are a direct

Newsletter Vol 36 / Issue 04

Greetings If you read the local newspapers, you all probably know I’ve been a little more than occupied. I’m filing city politics under “This too shall pass.” I’m also practicing being silent. I can already be silent in seven different languages! As to my “What I’m Thankful For” resolution, I’m thankful for all I learned

Greetings We’re a little closer to getting back to a “normal” meeting. Remember “Normal”? Anyhow, this month will be a Zoom meeting, but it will originate from H111 at UTSI. As to my “What I’m Thankful For” resolution, I’m thankful for SPRING! Our daffodils are in their “glory” stage. Day lilies and hostas are not

Greetings I think last month’s Zoom meeting was a success. Several of you joined in and it was good to see those that attended. Some commented that they liked the Zoom format. They didn’t have to get out and travel on a cold, dark night. Some were able to show large pieces they had made

Greetings December has been a trying month for the Gulley family. I tested positive for COVID-19 a couple days before Christmas. Later my daughter and grandson also succumbed. Christmas was postponed and everyone was in quarantine. We’re finally having Christmas tonight (Jan 12th.) But the good news is, everyone survived! Even better good new, 2020

Splinters December 2020 Volume 35 / Issue 12 Greetings I trust all you elves and Santa’s helpers have been busy in the workshop. I’ve already received several Show & Tell pics that confirms that you have been. I saw Mickey Knowles the other day and he says he has a table full of projects but

Splinters November 2020 Volume 35 / Issue 11 Greetings In our Sweeping Up section, I’ve used lots of jokes about getting older. Since there are so many seniors in our group, I guess I’m picking low hanging fruit. But really, “old” is relative. I was talking to a lady in our church a couple weeks

Newsletter Vol 35 / Issue 10

Splinters October 2020 Volume 35 / Issue 10 Greetings The “norm” for the monthly Greeting is usually light hearted. However, in keeping with the “norm” for 2020 (there is no norm,) I’d like to go in a different direction. I’d like to ponder on how quickly the abnormal can become normal, and what we can
