The following letter is an opinion letter from me, myself and I. It has nothing to do with this newspaper, my family, my friends, my church or anybody else but me. If you cannot understand that statement, then you may be some of the people that I am writing my letter to who just don’t see what is happening to our country.
Dear Uncle Sam,
To all our Veterans. All I can do is say thanks! I know I am a day late and a week short, but from the bottom of my heart, I honor each and every one of you. You have given of yourselves to this country and for that I salute you! I know that many of you saw a lot of heartache and pain during the times you served and all I can give you is my [...]
Misspoken words are sometimes funny. I want to relate five short stories to you that I still laugh at every time I think about them.
Many years ago my wife and I were on a vacation trip. We were in need of some All-American fast food, so we found the local Burger King. As we approached the counter, after waiting in a long line, my wife prompt [...]
There comes a time in every man’s life when he develops a comfort level in his maturity. Many men think that by the time they are eighteen they are a mature as they will ever be. Physically this may be true, but the kind of maturity I am talking about is the mental kind.
Mental maturity probably begins about the time we turn forty. This is ju [...]
You may have heard this joke before. Two women that know each other meet in the mall. One woman immediately noticed the others new hairdo. “New haircut! I love it!” “Really, do you really like it?” “Oh yes, I love it!.” “Really, are you sure it doesn’t make my face too round?” “Oh no! It really looks good on you!” “Are you sure? Are you sure [...]
I wonder what brings two people together at a certain time and a certain place, I thought to myself as I drove the blue Ford tractor down the wet dirt road. How is it that on the very day that I had decided to write about my cousin Wayne that I needed to borrow a tractor? I almost felt guilty about calling him, knowing that I was going to t [...]
I am a married man of over forty plus years! I am a very wise man! My wisdom has been obtained by the number of mistakes I have made in life! Making mistakes should always be used as a learning opportunity but sometimes… well… sometimes a man has to be a man and become very bold. Our new computer guy named Logan from Tomball Computer Guy has [...]
Last week I told you a story about a vacation I had several years ago. I ended the story with a concert I went to over at The Woodlands Pavilion.
I went stag to this particular concert. When I go to some events, I do not mind at all if I am all by myself. Being alone occasionally is good for people because then it makes us realize more and m [...]
Many years ago, my family and I took a vacation. I haven’t had one since. It was a historical length of time for us. I was “on vacation” for a total of seven days.
Many of you may laugh because you possibly get two, three or more weeks of vacation per year, but I am self-employed. As a self-employed family, our time away fro [...]
Sandwiched between Thanksgiving and Christmas is a very special day for me. It’s December 10th. It’s our wedding anniversary. The holidays are always a hectic time of year and when my then girlfriend and I announced our wedding date, my Mom always said the month of December was a bad time of year to get married. Mama was right! Now don’t get [...]
