On August 16, 2018, Detroit and the nation was devastated to learn of the passing of Motown legend Aretha Franklin. She was the “Queen of Soul” to the countless millions who loved her. Immortalized in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame she will remain a part of Detroit’s infamous history. Her music will always reverberate in the hearts of her people.There has to be a special place in heaven for the innumerable show people who have shared their many talents with the world. To coin an old phrase –...

Where has this year gone to? Pretty soon it will be time to change the clocks and start shopping for our thanksgiving bird. Summer has been different with its hot/cool and rainy weather. They say we can expect more of the same in the future. I hope our readers checked out the Google website on global warming. It’s certainly “food for thought”. We cannot change the damage that has already effected the environment but we can do something about the future. Provided that the “powers that be” pa...

Our summer seems rather short this year because of a late start. It is certainly here now: plants, animals and humans all in vivid colors. Bikini clad people baking in the summer sun while kids frolic in the surf.

I can remember flying across the church parking lot just a few minutes before my ceremony. My couture, who was my matron of honor, was late in finishing my wedding gown. The groom was anxiously waiting. That was the start of a long-lasting marriage. These days, marriages seem to be shorter but things are so much different now.

Spring is here finally and the sounds of construction will begin again in earnest. Winter was not too bad this year. It left with some unusual weather like a snow storm followed by a surge of spring like temperatures the same day. Then it snowed for two days. This is past and now we can concentrate on new beginnings. Technically, every one celebrated the New Year in January because it marks the beginning. For those of us who are Catholic the New Year starts on Ash Wednesday, the beginning of t...

We were doing fine weather-wise until the middle of December; then, the bottom dropped out. It’s fine for all the skaters at Campus Martius. They thrive on all these frigid temperatures. A lot of our furry friends seen to enjoy it, as well. As for our seniors, they’re out there, too, scooters and all. I wonder if it has anything to do with Global Warming.

It’s November and Thanksgiving will soon be here. There’s a flurry of shopping and everyone is busy making preparations. Anticipation of the coming festive season fills the air. Airports are filled with holiday travelers. Yet, despite all this hustle and bustle this year things seem different.

It’s no “trick” the “D” has been growing by leaps and bounds, but the “treat” would be if the senior population was growing with it. I live near the new Micro Apartments on Griswold. They look great from the outside, but living in one room 24/7 is not for everyone unless you happen to be a short-term tenant or a traveling salesman.

It has been a lazy summer. Now as September approaches we can feel the whispered chill of autumn and cooler days to come. In the midst of all the construction in downtown a piece of the past came to light. The old Sanders store.

We go through snow, freezing temperatures, wind and rain waiting for summer to arrive and then it’s gone in a blink! It’s August, half the year is over. Providing the weather holds, everyone is going to make summer last for as long as possible. We still have Indian summer, the weather is just a little cooler and there are plenty of fun things to do and places to go. Tiger fans can still cheer their team on until late September.
