My Life, My Words: Mike Armstrong — Fatherhood from a distance

“Basically, my job is that I work on a bull gang at Twentymile. The production crew comes in the shift before us and they cut the coal and ship it out. Then we come in, and once they get far enough in, we have to move the section and advance the power and the belt, do all the pipes. That’s what we do. I’ve been doing that for about a year and three months. “I met my wife, Dana, three years ago at my buddy’s birthday party, and we hit it off and dated for a couple years. Then she got pregnant with Boston, our son. He’s a year and two months old now. And then, I asked her to move in about a year ago with Boston, and we got married in April. She’s originally from North Dakota, and she was living in Minneapolis and then she moved down here when I met her.

To the editor: We recently had the windows in our home replaced by Black Mountain Glass. We were very impressed with their work. They came with a crew of four, moved what needed to be moved, took down curtains and had the job done in a timely manner. When the job was complete, they brought in their vacuum and cleaned up, put everything back in place and even left clean windows.

H. Neal Glanville: My computer illiteracy

Over the past 20-plus years, I’ve been cajoled, laughed at and whispered about over my lack of computer skills. Skills. Who am I kidding?

Annie's Mailbox: Woman suspicious of husband

Dear Annie: My husband, “Sam,” and I are retired. Two weeks ago, we ran into one of Sam’s former co-workers while out shopping. He seemed quite happy to see her. They kissed hello with a peck on the cheek — no big deal. I told Sam to stay and talk and I’d continue shopping. When I got to the next aisle, I saw a neighbor and we began chatting. From where I stood, I could see Sam and his friend.
