Tom Chaney: Robert B. Parker Yet Again

Of Writers And Their Books: Robert B. Parker Yet Again. Tom says that one delightful part of Night and Day involves Parker's bringing in characters from his other series. This column first appeared 17 May 2009.
The next earlier Tom Chaney column: "A Frisky Little River"

By Tom Chaney

Robert B. Parker Yet Again

May provided a fine sunny Sunday a week or so ago. There was sunshine with a few clouds -- temperature about 70.

My friend's deck back in the knobs sported a new recliner. The feeding place for his neighbor birds was active. I don't know birds except as they differ from snakes or mice, but they had lots of blue and red and grey and black and white and yellow feathers in a variety of combination.

Chuck Hinman : The Old Church Piano

Chuck Hinman: The Old Church Piano: 16 February 2006 Chuck says out there somewhere is a clunker piano which has been rolled once in a pick-up truck but otherwise in great shape for the shape it's in.
Next earlier Chuck Hinman column - Mom's Aprons

By Chuck Hinman

The Old Church Piano

Over the years, our church accumulated several 'clunker' pianos. No one relishes hauling one of these huge babies to the landfill where it belonged years ago. It is always felt that someone, somewhere could use it for their little Sara Lou, who plays "Chopsticks" like you wouldn't believe. A budding protege in the shadows of the church who is always looking for a piano player.

The Next Earlier Peg Schaeffer column: Happy Tail - Happy Mother's Day in the animal world

By Peg Schaeffer

California Chrome won the Preakness on Saturday. He also won the Kentucky Derby two weeks prior. This means in three weeks there is a chance of a Triple Crown Winner. In the past 36 years, since Affirmed won the Triple Crown in 1978, 13 horses have won the first two legs of the Triple Crown but have failed to win the Belmont. I think that this year we might see a winner.
