Aggravating Antics

By Patti Parish-Kaminski, Publisher It happened again. First rattle out of the box on an early morning road trip Mr. Kaminski commenced to poking the bear. We have discussed this, he and I, my penchant for no shenanigans in the early am hours. I can get to where I need to be, but there should be no further...

Apathetic vs. Enthusiastic

By Patti Parish-Kaminski, Publisher I really don’t understand apathy. Now don’t get me wrong. I understand the meaning of the word – I simply don’t subscribe to it. For the life of me, I can’t think of one particular thing that I am apathetic about. I feel a certain kind of way about everything. I...

Counting Baby Years

By Patti Parish-Kaminski, Publisher Somehow in the last 30 minutes or so, baby girl has grown up. Tomorrow, in fact, she turns 26 years-old, and I can’t for the life of me figure out how that happened. I still have her crib. I still have her high chair. I still have all of her American Girl dolls, her...

Free Fallin’

By Patti Parish-Kaminski, Publisher With cooler temps and the holidays just around the corner, fall is top of mind with folks right now. But in our house, the word “fall” has an entirely different meaning. I fall. A lot. I mean that I am walking along, not a care in the world and I am a living example...

Ain’t Nothing Easy About the Big Easy

By Patti Parish-Kaminski, Publisher I haven’t been to New Orleans in a minute – well before Mr. Kaminski and I had babies. So, when the opportunity arose to go to the Crescent City to celebrate someone near and dear to me, I was all in. Now I was given the appropriate advice, or shall we say, warnings,...

A Tone + A Look = ?

By Patti Parish-Kaminski, Publisher I’ve been accused of many things in my life. It’s a lengthy list, and I choose to focus on the ones that appeal to me the most: sharp-witted, quick-tempered, the talent to accessorize in a fashion-forward manner, the gift of turning a phrase with an overt negative...

Fabulous 50’s!

By Patti Parish-Kaminski, Publisher Growing up I often heard my elders use the phrase, “Youth is wasted on the young.” I never quite understood why they would say that, much less lament the sentiment when it was spoken. It always seemed a bit oxymoronic to me. Yes, I read a lot as a child. Now that...

Me Being Me

By Patti Parish-Kaminski, Publisher There are some things in this world I am just not going to be. Thin and pleasant top the list. Sure, I can do one or the other, albeit for brief periods of time, just not simultaneously. The two states are simply not conducive to co-existing with one other. Just look at...

Dancing From One Season to the Next

By Patti Parish-Kaminski, Publisher – In 1989 I saw Steel Magnolias at the movie theatre. It tore me up. Still does even though I know what’s coming. I remember thinking at only 24 years old that this was what life really boiled down to: marking time from holiday to holiday making memories as they...
