The place was familiar. I took a deep breath and went inside.  I remembered every bit of it from the last time we’d all gathered to remember my pawpaw. But this time was for someone else. The beautiful flowers smelled of spring, and she lay there so beautiful and angelic. She would have made…

Since 2020 we have been hearing a lot about people, movies, books, and other things being canceled. In the past three months it has become worse. It appears that if the liberals or non-conservatives don’t like something they think they can just cancel it out of everyone’s lives.

Life has been for most of us like the bumpy pot-hole-stricken roads you can find all over the place. We cruise good for a minute and then boom, out of nowhere you hit one of those terrible parts of the road that throw you around the car for a hot second. Scared to death, and a few curse word…

It seems that everything is moving to smart technology these days. First it was smart phones now its smart TVs, audio/video components, automobiles, trucks, appliances, alarm systems and the list goes on.

Every part of my Texan soul loves the fact that on the very day we commemorated 185 years of Texas independence the Guvnah made the decision to rescind the mask mandate and allow Texas to reopen fully. 

Apart from my God, my beloved beautiful Sasquatch of a husband, my ferociously delightful fur-covered children, and a petite and somewhat manageable portion of my blood relatives, I have a very few legitimate loves in my life. 

As the first snowflakes fell, I thought to myself how beautiful the flakes looked but then all heck broke loose. The temperature went below what any of us would consider comfortable, and after a few inches of snow, the ice added to the mayhem. Most Texans probably didn’t know what to think a…

Here we are at the end of the worst snow and ice storm that I have ever experienced in Texas. For four and a half days the roads have been dangerous with most businesses closed. Actually the only other event like this that I have experienced was when I celebrated my sixteenth birthday in Sou…

Time. It’s something we don’t have. We do, but then again we don’t. It ticks away as we work, and ticks away as we sit on the couch on a lazy Sunday afternoon. 

Ever since COVID-19 invaded our country we were told that senior citizens were at high risk, especially those with health issues and those in nursing homes according to the experts and our government.

I use to wait for the storms to pass. I would just sit crouched in the corner and listen to each boom of thunder; quivering at each sight of lighting striking the ground. But most of the time, life is one big storm, and to sit in the corner waiting for the storm to pass, we’d miss out on lif…

The worldwide pandemic wrought by COVID-19 has brought clarity about so many things for folks across the world. Here in Texas, it has become abundantly clear that the Texas Legislature must be able to act more quickly than once every two years.

Thanksgiving Day is this Thursday and I can hardly wait. My wife Ann and I have decided to stay home this year (by choice and not out of fear) and celebrate with a traditional Thanksgiving feast, southern style complete with collard greens.

I remember the day as if it was yesterday even though it has been four weeks. Several of my staff members asked that I get tested for the coronavirus because I had a real deep cough. This was nothing out of the ordinary since I cough when I have a sinus attack.

Happily ever after...humph. It only exists in fairytales. No magic wands. No snapping your fingers to clean anything, and no talking to animals that can talk back. Oh and definitely no fairy godmothers. (I wish!) 

One of the greatest days in recent history took place on Saturday September 26, 2020. There were two Christian events held at the Washington Mall at our nation’s capital to unite people in prayer and repentance for our nation. I was thrilled to see the Church finally get outside their walls …

I’m sure a fair few of you tuned in to the WWE Seniors match incorrectly labeled a Presidential Debate. I’m almost positive most of you were equally sickened by the spectacle. 

The wind blew, dancing through the trees. The leaves gracefully fell to the ground welcoming in a new season. I sat there, wondering, asking why can’t life be as easy as the color change of deep reds and bright oranges. I came home from work one day, and my mom was sitting under the carport …

Every morning I show up to work early to unlock the building and get started on another issue of the newspaper. To my surprise when I arrived this past Monday there was a business card taped to the door that read “COPS, your property was checked by a volunteer with Citizens On Patrol.”

As a child, I will admit that the dark always perturbed me. Any excuse to have a flashlight or some sort of night light made me feel safe...just knowing that there was some sort of light chasing away the darkness as I slept. Now I can’t have it dark enough to sleep. 

Lawlessness in the streets, de-funding the police, destroying our history, professional politicians attempting to unseat a duly elected president, deceiving the public, dividing a nation and I’m just getting started. When will it ever end?

I can never express enough that I am not a Republican, nor am I a Trump supporter. Neither am I a Democrat, and I guarantee ole neck-sniffing Biden won’t be getting my vote. 

Y’all...the new term we have for disgruntled, give me my money back, bad attitude, I have it to have it my way people is KAREN. And I’ve seen so many of them in the last few weeks. These so-called “Karens” have made me stop to think about how we treat others, especially with what is going on…

Coronavirus expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci said last week that for perfect protection against the dreaded COVID-19 virus that has crippled our nation we need to wear eye goggles.

A long-running joke amongst my family members was that our grandfather, or Pa as we called him, didn’t know our names. Without a nip of good old Jack in his holiday soda he hardly ever spoke anyway much less called us out specifically. 

Many on the left and their willing accomplices in the media would tell you otherwise, yet a cursory examination of our nation’s factual history and records proves the riots and chaos that have swept across our country in recent months stand as a devastating reminder of the racist policies an…

Forgetting something important on your daily routine has turned from a portfolio folder to a face covering. They told us it’s for our own good. We locked the doors. Didn’t go anywhere past a certain time. Sent one person from the house to do the shopping. We MUST wear a mask to go inside pla…
