  • "Man Fear" riles the roost

    I admit it. I can stir up trouble. The particular variety I have been engaging in is “Man Fear.”

    It begins when I say things like:

    “We need a weed trimmer.”

    “We need a riding lawn mower and I want one with a Z-turn.”

    “I need a hedge trimmer so the azalea bushes can be cut by July.”

    “I would like to have one of those small handheld cordless drill/screwdrivers to hang things around the house.”

    The works of Bill Roberts, artist and author, will be on exhibit during February at Brick City Center for the Arts, 25 SW Broadway St., Ocala.
