The balance of life

When I was about 12 years old, I had some family living on the Louisiana/Texas border. It was about a mile from Toledo Bend Dam. About a half mile from the house was a spillway that had only water in it when the dam was releasing water to generate electricity. When we would visit the folks in Louisiana, I always went to the spillway and played. There was something almost mystical about that place. I loved it.

Spice is nice...

What are little boys made of?

Snips and snails, and puppy dogs’ tails,

That’s what little boys are made of.

What are little girls made of?

Sugar and spice, and everything nice,

I Swear
Eight-year-old ads still funny as ever

Cleaning off a shelf, I came across the 2005 issue of Uncle John’s Fast-Acting, Long-Lasting Bathroom Reader. This series, by the way, has been around for a quarter-century now, and I’m long overdue to order the 2012 issue: the Fully Loaded 25th Anniversary Bathroom Reader.

River City Roundabout
It's all about the cheese

I love cheese. In my estimation, there are few things in life cheese can’t improve, and there’s no such thing as too much of it. I love cheese so much, I’ve told my long distance Facebook friends that if I suddenly stop posting updates, the cheese I’ve eaten has finally caught up with me. “Nachos will be the death of me,” I wrote.

Are We There Yet?

Madame Lily Devalier always asked “Where are you?” in a way that insinuated that there were only two places on Earth one could be: New Orleans and somewhere ridiculous.

Most celebrations end with good food

One of America’s favorite celebrations will be here soon – the 4th of July. This is always one of my favorites, not only because of what it stands for but also for many other reasons: It’s in the summer, so the celebrations are mostly outside; most all the family gets together; there’s a shorter work week; it provides time for a short weekend vacation or road trip; and I love the fireworks! In most towns, there are fireworks at many different places that you can take the family to watch. As I said, it’s one of my favorite celebrations!

No more horsing around for local Realtor, property manager

Some Realtors get into the business because they see an opportunity to control their destiny. Others pursue real estate because they love the work. Bruce Lansford became a Realtor because he’d shoed his last horse.

“I made horseshoes and braces for horses with lameness problems. But old age got to me, and my back was about to give out,” he says. He’s sitting comfortably in a chair at the front desk at Lansford Realty & Property Management, located off of Lee Highway on Vance Road.

Brainbuster – Make your brain tingle!

My husband and I are selling our house. We have two cats, both Ragdolls, who are taken to our new house every time a prospective buyer wants to view the one we are selling. We do this because our cats are extremely personable and would be underfoot. However, our male cat has not adjusted to this moving about, and as a result, the doctor has put him on Prozac. Crazy, yes, but then he has gone, well, crazy! And I’m afraid before all is said and done, I will be too!

The Critic's Corner
The Purge kills

If you could kill someone and get away with it, would you?

Let’s take that question one step farther: If you could kill someone, and it wasn’t illegal, would you? No jail time, no worrying about the death penalty, just getting that elephant off your chest.
