More musings from Jim the Jotter

After hearing my eleven hundredth pitch from an attorney today on the tube, I'm convinced that the first person I should call when I fall, or am in a car crash or have an extreme movement, should be Sam, Morse, Jeffrey or Abe....more >>

Big Jim support shows love for the Oxford library

I've been a publisher of four Oakland County community weekly newspapers for a few decades. As such, I've devoted years of my life to happenings in these communities.

Give me green paint, and I give you the Jolly Green Giant!

Tis the season for re-runs, and I'd like you to follow a hair pulling Jottings runner from 1966. * * * Several weeks ago, Hazel and I were in a group that attended the Orion Council of Knights of Columbus dance....more >>
