Back in the 20th century, kids--as well as adults who sometimes acted like them--seemed destined to “make their own fun.” Not too much in the way of “time-passing” was in play if it cost anything, thus fertile minds were often in “creative more
Cats and birds don’t always work well together but McKenzie Baskin, 2017 graduate of Whitehouse High School, is ready to step out of her Wildcat environment and soar with the Cardinals of Trinity Valley Community College. more
Rock-a-bye roads There are too many of these rock-a-bye roads in our part of NE Texas. Very uneven, roads that roll every 10 feet, in some places, e.g. State Hwy 110 between Troup and New Summerfield. My mother, at 100, hated that road. She’d groan and yelp, as if in torture. more
“Wake the neighbors! Get the word out! Come on, crank up the music, climb a mountain and shout! This is life we’ve been given, made to be lived out … so live out loud.” +++ more

Once upon a time in a land not so far away, I lived a life of order and neatness. I had a pretty decent schedule that I kept to. I watched whatever I wanted on television, whenever I wanted to and I went to bed at about the same time every night.
