It Won't Be Long Now - 11/14/13

  When your children are small people say, you better enjoy them while you can  because they won't be little for long.  I was up early several times this week to talk with my 17-year-old daughter over breakfast before she went to school.  She's a senior in high school, trying to decide where she's going to college.  As we talked, I thought how quickly the time has passed.

  When my daughter was just a few months old we moved to Gallatin.  I used to take her on walks, often carrying her on my shoulders, her hanging on to two handfulls of dad's hair to make her feel more secure up there.  We still live in Sumner County.  When we're out, people come up to me almost monthly and say I used to see you and your daughter walking past our house when she was a baby.  I can't believe how she has grown up.  I can't either.

  I'm looking forward to her having a great college experience and can't wait to see God's plan for her life, but I'm a little sad too.  My little girl isn't so little anymore.  We have a great relationship.  I believe she's comfortable talking to me about most things, but I know it won't be long until we'll be having more of those conversations by phone and text.  I know it's just the nature of things. 

  With that in mind, let me tell you, enjoy those little ones while you can because they grow up quickly.  I speak from experience.

86-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WRITES STEAMY ROMANCE NOVEL

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- It isn't quite 50 Shades of Gray. But a book written by an 86-year-old Utah woman is getting attention because of the steamy content of the book about a bored housewife. Georgia Gorringe tells KUTV it took her five years to write the novel available on Kindle and Amazon. The story is about a woman who listens to talk radio and is mesmerized by a man's voice. The writer's adult daughter says she was taken aback by the amount of steaminess in the book. Gorringe insists the book "No Good-Bye" is all fiction -- but her daughter says much is based on her mom's life.

MUG SHOT T-SHIRT

MADISON, Maine (AP) -- So, what does one wear to be booked into jail? If the "one" is Bobby Burt of Pittsfield, Maine, it's was a T-shirt featuring his mug shot. Burt served a 48-hour sentence for drunken driving back in June. And when showed up for his booking photo, he was sporting a T-shirt with the mug shot from his arrest on an orange shirt. The shirt had the words: "Sponsored by Bud Light and Somerset County Sheriff." The mug shot is getting a lot of added attention, thanks to The Smoking Gun. Jail officials say there is no policy on what inmates can or cannot wear for booking photos.

101-YEAR-OLD MAN KEEPS WORKING

EAST HANOVER, N.J. (AP) -- He just turned 101 years old. And part of the way Herman "Hy" Goldman marked the occasion was to do something he has done for the past 73 years: Go to work. Goldman works four days a week at Capitol Lighting in East Hanover, New Jersey. His co-workers observed his birthday on Monday. Aside from a brief absence to serve in the Army during World War II, Goldman has worked at Capitol Lighting since 1941.
