It is the Christmas holidays. There I said it. Christmas Holidays!
It wasn’t until Donald Trump became President that the term “Fake News” became popular. Here we are three years later and the term is more popular than ever.
Thanks have been given. The turkey is nothing but an emaciated carcass, literally, skin and bones. All that’s left of the dressing are those little egg bits that eventually turn to Goodrich worthy rubber.
Imagine a treasure box, full of pearls, shiny chunks of emeralds, diamonds, sapphires; surrounded by golden coins. You’ve searched for what seems ages, and you finally found shiny things you were so eager to touch, to see and to have as your own. When in the very beginning, the treasure wa…
Census taking did not start in North America by the federal government but in the days of Moses in the Bible.
God bless this country. I love America, I love democracy, I adore the Constitution. I recognize that I was blessed to be born in a place where my freedoms are inalienable and certain.
I see, and hear, people complaining about the cost of health care going through the roof.
The sweet wife and I have a bird feeder. We also have a bird bath and recently added two hummingbird feeders.
History. It has a prickly way of repeating itself, sometimes in a vicious cycle, and other times in the best way. History is definitley something we should pay attention to and learn what we can from it.
Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end. I loved the sentiment when Semisonic sang it, in my youth, and it feels applicable, even today.
About 30 years ago in Clear Lake, Texas, I said in this column there was a tear in the moral fabric of this great nation of ours; that the current generation was not being as responsible as the previous. There was going to be a price to pay down the road.
The sweet wife and I took a vacation recently. It was her birthday wish to head to the beach, her happy place! So we did, driving way east, driving through Alabama, where I proudly wore my Texas A&M cap, thankfully without incident! We had a great time, but alas, it was time to return to…

My heart broke a little this past weekend and I’m reminded of it everyday.
Step away from the Clorox wipes. Put down that bar of soap. Throw away that hand sanitizer! Why are we all so obsessed with scrubbing every available surface until it gleams in disinfected splendor? Let some things just be gross. Go swim in a pond, let your kids play in the mud. Don’t lose y…
Good morning, Henderson.
I don’t know about you but I am fed up with our federal government.
These past few weeks have been eventful, stressful, chaotic and much more.
As summer begins, although I really think it began last month, I am reminded of many summers of the past.
I must admit that I sure do miss the “good ole days.” I never dreamed that I would ever think that must less say it.

This past week my life has been swept into a whirl wind with a few new challenges.
