Swift: Praise for the helpers, they give us hope
FARGO — “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find...

End of pet's life marked by memories and grief
“I’m taking Jake to the vet.” Those words, texted by my ex-husband, should have seemed innocuous. But it’s different when your dog is 13½ years old and has been struggling. At that age, he would not be saved by an elaborate surgery or a miracle medicine. “It’s his...

50 brings liberation, confidence
Dear 50, Why did you haunt me? Why was I so afraid of your middle-aged Spanx-choked shadow, your threat of 4 p.m. dinners and raincaps tucked into unwieldy beige purses? When I was much, much younger, I thought of you as old. Anyone who was 50 was surely doomed to a future of “Matlock”...

Sisterly vacation has decidedly over-50 vibe
My parents used to occasionally take bus tours for vacations. We kids used to roll our eyes at this. What did a bunch of senior citizens do on a tour? Extreme postcard viewing? Rascal scooter tours? Oatmeal tastings? We shouldn’t have laughed. Recently, my sisters treated me to...

Saying goodbye to bad rummage sales
Although I’ve never given birth, I have heard of a phenomenon that often accompanies childbirth. Whether it’s the feel-good hormone of oxytocin or a built-in selective amnesia, women supposedly take a look at that tiny, helpless bundle and forget all the pain that preceded his...

Musings of an aging mind
I hail from a long line of absent-minded people. Rumor has it that my Great-Great-Great Uncle Moses Ebenezor Swift had five wives — mainly because he kept forgetting he was already married. The Swift Family Crest includes the hallowed words, “Ubi terrarum car parcum fecimus?”...

Shopping trp leads to a change of 'Kors'
’ve always considered myself fairly immune to the whims of the fashion industry. I still have never worn leggings and boots. I prefer Calvin and Hobbes over Calvin Klein. But at some point, even Old Style Mule stumbled on the trail of trendy temptations. I wanted a Michael Kors...

Swift: Even with today’s helicopter parents, not much has changed
It’s that time. It’s that time of year when teary parents across the nation pack up their newly minted high school grads and bundle them off to school. It is very cool — and a little bizarre — that today’s parents are so deeply involved in this coming-of-age ritual. They...

Swift: Nuclear warhead design has nothing on Christmas tree
"Wouldn’t it be fun to set up the tree?” My mother’s question, posed during Thanksgiving break, seemed so harmless — even inviting.
