Clifford for Feb. 23, 2015
A long, long time ago when people still traveled sometimes by horse and buggy there was a spot several hundred yards west of the FM 2978 bridge over Spring Creek.  The road was called Hufsmith Conroe Road. A gully known as Bogs Gully intersects with the creek at this spot.  The location where the gully meets the creek is called “The Bog [...]

Media has zero interest in Obama’s past
By Nic Hudson For the Tribune During the presidential campaign of 2008, we were told that Obama was going to stop the seas from rising and the planet finally would begin to heal.  We were treated to a nightly dose of  cheering crowds of tens of thousands of people who thought this man was nothing less than the second coming. He was going to f [...]

Many of you do not know me personally, but needless to say, I am known to pull some good pranks on people over my lifetime.  I have two pranks in process and I am sure that any day now they will come to fruition. I love life and I enjoy being happy. Most of my pranks are cheap pranks. Stuff that cost me little or no money. Generally something [...]

I have to be very careful how I write some of my stories. My wife critiques my stories. I learned a long time ago that I should never carry the women jokes too far. I could fill a book with blonde jokes, hormone jokes, pregnant woman jokes and several others. But alas, if I get too carried away, she pulls me back in line. I also learned a lon [...]

This past year has been a good one for me. Many of my personal dreams and ideas are coming to pass and I must say I look forward to this year with a new fervor and delight. I know that regardless of the everyday occurrences in one’s life, the overall outcome is still gonna be alright. I’m secure in my faith and beliefs in God and [...]

Socialism is fun, until you run out of toilet paper
By Nic Hudson For the Tribune It seems that for the last six years America has been going through an identity crisis. We see marches in New York and other major cities known as “occupy Wall Street” that seem to suggest that capitalism is the most evil form of economic structure on the planet. The fact is that nothing could be furt [...]

Don’t ask me why, cause I don’t know, but men enjoy pulling pranks on each other. It’s a sign of friendship. We do stupid stuff to each other and the further out in left field, the better. I’m sure you have seen or heard of shows like Candid Camera. I loved it! College boys do some really dumb stuff like putting Saran Wrap on the commod [...]

Let’s all get on welfare!

Let’s all get on welfare!
By Nic Hudson For the Tribune Can you imagine an entire nation on welfare?  Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be in a situation where no one would have to crawl out of their warm bed in the morning to go to work?  We could all stay in bed till noon and then do nothing for the rest of the day except wait for the government check to arrive.  I [...]

Over the past years I have told stories about my antics as a young boy growing up here in these parts. I enjoy reminiscing and this week is one of those reminiscing moments. A few years ago I had a hard day up at the ranch. I have been trying to take a little personal time on Thursdays and go handle my ranch work. I’m a weekend cowboy who act [...]

The government doesn’t create jobs, Americas small businesses do….
By Nic Hudson For the Tribune How many times have we all heard politicians say their main goal is to create jobs?  How many times have we heard them tell us that they’ve created 200,000 or 300,000 jobs last month?  The truth is, the government does not create jobs.  It never has, but it’s a great campaign slogan.  If the governmen [...]
