I Remember Dad: The Shy Airman Returns Home

By Richard Mabey Jr.

 In the Spring of 1946, Dad and Uncle Edward came home from the war. I cannot even begin to imagine the joy and splendor that ran through the veins and arteries of Grandma and Grandpa Mabey. The war was over. Both of their sons were now home safe, at the farmhouse at the end of Mabey Lane. The very home that Grandpa had built when he was a younger man.

My father soon got a job as a truck driver for Moon Carrier in Paterson. He also resumed his part-time job as an usher at the grand and glorious Majestic Theater in Paterson. My father was a hard-working man. Dad saved every penny he could, and then soon bought his very own car, a 1940 Hudson. It must have been such an incredibly happy and joyous moment in time for my beloved father.

OPINION: Hunter Biden: Bane of the ‘Mainstream’ Press

From the right


Four summers ago, the network evening news shows obsessed over Donald Trump Jr. attending a brief and ineffective meeting with Russians at Trump Tower in 2016. He hoped to get “dirt” on Hillary Clinton, but nothing came of it. ABC, CBS and NBC offered viewers more than 62 minutes of coverage energetically speculating over collusion with the Russians in just four nights in July.

On Aug. 11, the Daily Mail reported, “Hunter Biden claimed Russians stole another one of his laptops for blackmail while he was close to overdosing in a Las Vegas hotel room.” Coverage on ABC, CBS and NBC? Nothing. Zero. The story underlined this alleged theft “would mean Hunter lost a total of three computers — the first abandoned at a Delaware computer store and the second seized by federal agents.”

OPINION: The Tragic March of 2021: Will It Ever End Well?


Attention readers: Mark Shields is off this week. Please enjoy the following column by Jamie Stiehm.

WASHINGTON — The year 2021 is so far framed by the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot and the Aug. 15 fall of Afghanistan without firing a shot.

In a momentous march of malady, misfortune and strife, we also witnessed a second presidential impeachment trial; the comeback of COVID-19; the collapse of a condominium high-rise in Florida; a New York governor rightfully forced out of office; the climate crisis declared to be here to stay and getting worse; a devastating earthquake in Haiti, with a hurricane closing in; and then desperate chaos in Kabul, Afghanistan’s capital city, as the Taliban moved in and we moved out after 20 years.

The Miracle

By Richard Mabey Jr.

Author’s note: This story is 90 percent true. I took the liberty of changing people’s names.

A boy gets one first crush. One to a customer. And, as time goes by and the boy becomes an old man, he finds himself looking back at those days of his boyhood, and he wonders about his first crush. And, all of the magic, the splendor, the wonder, the infinite joy, haunts the fiber and chambers of his heart. And, he finds himself wondering as now an old man, sitting on his front porch rocking chair, looking out to the oak tree on his front lawn, “what if?”
