Robbin Bruce: Itís cold and itís raining, this ainít good

Friday, March 7, 2014 8:41 a.m.

I donít know about you but Iíve had enough! As I sit here on Wednesday morning typing this I got on a pair of bedroom shoes. I donít wear bedroom shoes, but I started a couple weeks ago, this is getting ridiculous. I thought I was getting a little crazy the first part of winter when I started wearing a Ďboggin around the house a few months ago, …


Robbin Bruce: It seems like a waste of time, but I still got to do it

Friday, February 28, 2014 9:15 a.m.

About every month or so thereís something I have to do, that to be honest, I really hate to do. I donít know why, Iíve been doing it all my life, and itís not really all that big of a deal, but as I get older, it just seems to be a waste of time. But if I donít Mel starts giving weird looks, and if Iím lucky, I can get Kt to do it for me. With me, …


Robbin Bruce: I donít know about you, but Iíve had enough winter

Friday, February 7, 2014 4:11 p.m.

I donít know about you but Iíve had a gut full of winter. Maybe itís because Iím so used to what we call winter around here, that when ďTrueĒ winter arrived it was such a shocker. Yíall know what Iím talking about, the last week or so. I guess it started about a week or so ago on Friday, I had run to town, and I started to get a bad feeling. They …


Robbin Bruce: First thing in the morning, and the last thing at night

Friday, January 24, 2014 10:03 a.m.

Thereís something I do every morning and every evening. Well to be honest, itís the first thing every morning and the last thing at night. Thatís my glasses, I put them on time I get out of bed, and take them off just as I lay down. Iíve been doing it since I was nine years old, and to be honest, I really donít pay it any attention. I guess I was …


Robbin Bruce: Driving on top of a train, I donít think so

Friday, January 17, 2014 9:12 a.m.

I got to noticing something the other day while I was watching TV. There at the bottom of the commercial was a warning label, ďThis is a fantasy.Ē Well duh! I knew that. There you have a car jumping on the top of a speeding train, then after riding on top of it for a few miles, they drive it off. While it looks like itís running 60 mph. And the …


Robbin Bruce of Andrews Ďfesses up to something heís never done before

Friday, January 10, 2014 9:29 a.m.

I did something Tuesday Iíd really never done before. I stuck my head out the door, and I said to myself, ďthis ainít going to be good.Ē If you need to be reminded it was all of about 20 degrees around nine or so. I already had on my heavy coat and socks, yep, socks. But with my eyeballs freezing I knew I needed a little more, but with a heavy …


Happy New Year, a day or two later

Friday, January 3, 2014 9:25 a.m.

Yesterday morning while running to town it took me a few minutes to notice something. My radio is always on, and like most folks, unless itís some Skynard or maybe some Rolling Stones, most times itís just background noise. But then it finally dawned on me, ďwhereís the Christmas Music?Ē For the last two months itís been either Jingle Bells, Santa …


Robbin Bruce: A Christmas story we kind of forget

Friday, December 20, 2013 9:02 a.m.

A long time ago there was a fellow named of Zacharias and his wife Elizabeth. Now by this time both of them were getting a little old, and seeing how they didnít have any kids, and to be honest they kind of figured they werenít ever going to have any. Well Zacharias worked in the temple and it was his turn to go in the Holy of Holies to light the …


Robbin Bruce: Hereís a idea if you have a few minutes during the holidays

Friday, November 29, 2013 10:33 a.m.

Friday Mel called and asked me to run something to her at the office, I needed to run by Wally World, so I figured it was as good as time as any. Thanksgivingís coming, and even though I plan on frying a couple turkeys every year, I always seem to wait to the last minute to get the stuff together. Last year, at the last minute my fryer died, and I …


Robbin Bruce: Fried turkey and fruit cake cookies

Friday, November 22, 2013 9:00 a.m.

I donít know about yíall but Iím getting hungry. Itís weird because Iím really not; I just had me a couple Eggoís, so food should be the last thing on my mind. Maybe it started last night, Mel asked if I had mentioned to my brothers or anybody else about Thanksgiving. I really didnít think I needed to. In a sense, she has kind of taken Mommaís …


Robbin Bruce: Daytime TV will be the death of me yet UPDATED

Friday, November 1, 2013 11:57 a.m.

The other day while I was going through my chores, chopping wood, feeding the hawgs, I passed by the TV and for some reason something caught my eye. Now I’ve got to admit it wasn’t anything mind shattering, to be honest, most folks might have kept on walking, but it kind of sucked me in. Of all things it was about making coins. Like …
