By Del Duduit When I was younger, I loved to watch college basketball almost as much as the National Basketball Association. Back then in the NBA, players let their talents do the talking. I was an admirer of Larry Bird and the Boston Celtics. The Legend was my first big interview when I was a… Continue reading Don’t Throw That Chair

A Bittersweet Month
By Del Duduit February is always bittersweet. Six years ago this month, our family suffered a gigantic loss when my sister-in-law died of cancer at the young age of 46. I am aware that many families deal with tragedy, but to us, this experience was monumental and changed our lives forever. Her story of faith… Continue reading A Bittersweet Month
Forgiveness over Bitterness
By Del Duduit Have you ever thought you deserved more recognition and never got it? It’s happened to me, and I’m sure it’s taken place in your life. I’m not bitter, but there have been times I have wondered why. And that’s okay. Perhaps an incident in your life has become an obsession. You think… Continue reading Forgiveness over Bitterness
The Silence of the Night
(A Christmas post from last season when we could get out and sing Christmas Carols.) By Del Duduit There is nothing more fulfilling than taking time on a cold winter’s night to sing Christmas carols to the elderly and those who are shut in. Angie and I, along with several members of the Rubyville Community… Continue reading The Silence of the Night
What Did Mary Know?
(A repeat from last year -- one of my favorites) By Del Duduit The Christmas season has officially started. And no, I’m not referring to Black Friday. That’s a day set aside by retailers as a real life pay-per-view boxing match. I avoid that day and stay hunkered down and nearly unconscious from my food-induced… Continue reading What Did Mary Know?

Who wants to wait until tomorrow for “old news?” This is just an example. I could give you tons more. I have been in professional sales most of my work life.… Continue reading Waiting for Food

For me, it's more than a hobby. But I want to take a few moments and reflect back on the year I… Continue reading 2020 — Enough Said
The Election Process
By Del Duduit Last week, I had the pleasure – I guess I can call it that – to work in my local Board of Elections office and help prepare the county for the dreaded election day. For the past 25 years plus, I have served as my precinct committee person for the Republican party,… Continue reading The Election Process
10 Years Ago – The Journey Started
By Del Duduit Ten years ago, my professional life was up in the air. I was laid off from a position and had to be like a scavenger to find a job. But that did not change who I was as a person. Even though I felt dejected, I was still me. Ten years ago,… Continue reading 10 Years Ago – The Journey Started
The Words Would Not Come Out
By Del Duduit Over the next few weeks and blogs, I will switch gears and discuss overcoming obstacles. We all have experienced them, some bigger than others. They can range from a lost job, to a relationship gone south to health issues. Challenges can be personal, or at least taken that way. For example, I… Continue reading The Words Would Not Come Out
