Southwest Airlines and Early-Bird Check-in As I said in the previous post, I LUV to fly Southwest Airlines. I have friends who work there, too, and the culture is admirable. But I have an issue with the whole Early-Bird Check-In scheme they’re running. To me it’s below the cultural integrity established long ago by the […]

Who Am I? The Self-Discovery Caused From Writing A Novel Somewhere back in time at 208 Fortress Street in base housing of the former Strategic Air Command’s K.I. Sawyer Air Force Base in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I would sit at a kidney bean family heirloom desk with a children’s red type writer and […]

TDMN Story About Home-Rule District In Dallas ISD Brings Squeals As a Dallas ISD ex-pat, it’s often aggravating and comical to watch current goings on in the district, none more so than today’s story in The Dallas Morning News about an organization attempting to drum up petition signatures for an August vote in Dallas County […]

Domestic Violence is Real, and it’s Serious There have been two murder-suicides in Dallas in as many days. Domestic Violence is a real and serious crime and far too often it goes unreported and when it is reported, many times little or nothing is done about it until it’s too late. As a victim of […]

In Hard Times God Was With Them–Do You Think He’s Forgotten You?  Sunday in the a.m and p.m. services, Prestoncrest Church of Christ’s Gordon Dabbs drew two amazing word pictures that have helped continue to reshape my focus and attitude the past few days, and I feel compelled to share them here. You know I […]

Marquette, Michigan, It’s Snowing! Some of my fondest childhood memories are from looking at the street lights in Northern Michigan at night in the winter to see if it was snowing. If it was really coming down, base housing on KI Sawyer AFB was accompanied by the rumbling sound of diesel-powered snow plows coming through […]

So AT&T is going to drop millions on Jerry World. Good for them. (Maybe in their negotiations they could have leveraged Jerry stepping down and NomoRomo getting traded to AAA ball or something for a player to be named later.) I won’t go into my typical Cowboys issues. No, I just wish that before AT&T […]

Another Weather Forecast Error in Dallas—SNOW It snowed here in the DFW area this morning. Twenty-four hours ago, indeed, even 16 or so hours ago, it wasn’t even in the forecast. Now there were predictions that I noted on FB briefly that were for Saturday and Sunday that evaporated as soon as they were posted.  […]

I’ve made it no secret. I may be one of the oldest fans of Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros and sadly, I am behind the curve of the release of their new album “Here,” but after hearing just a few songs, I’m clearly “A Man On Fire” for more. My daughter, Chandler, and I […]

Not every hospital admission has to be a bad thing.  In what now is Day 3 of this adventure, which was caused by a flare up of diverticulitis, I remain hospitalized and my precious, eldest daughter, Chandler, remains at my side here in the Texas Regional Medical Center in Sunnyvale, Texas. Who would have thought […]
