THE NEWSROOM Several of my friends posted on my Facebook wall Saturday p.m. about how distraught I must have been about Auburn losing to Texas A&M.  I really was not. Truth is, I didn’t even watch the game, and for that matter, haven’t sat beginning to end for an entire collegiate game all season. I’ve […]

A Note To My Grandchildren It’s May 2, 2014 and at this point in my life, I don’t have any grandchildren. Just three wonderful teenage daughters who still are trying to figure out who and what they’re going to be in this world. Many days, even like today at my age of 48, I’m still […]

April 27, 2011 in Alabama – One Of The Worst Tornado Outbreaks Ever I was in Huntsville, AL for April 27, 2011, one of the worst tornado outbreaks ever recorded in the state with 247 killed in 62 storms. I never will forget that day as long as I live, for I thought at one […]

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 […]

W. Cartwright in Mesquite –One of the most dangerous curves in North Texas I’ve been in the Stoneleigh Apartment complex in Mesquite/Balch Springs, Texas for almost four years now. Over that time, there have been multiple single-car accidents at the intersection exiting the complex and into the curve headed toward Belt Line Road. Most of […]

When Do You As A Parent Defend Your Student Worker From A Jackass? My eldest daughter, 16, took the initiative this January and went out and got herself a job. She wanted more freedom to have her own money to spend. She had plans for buying a car. She had high expectations and soon realized […]

Spider Webs Over Mesquite, Texas If you live in North Texas, chances are you peered up into the heavens on this beautiful, blue-sky day and stopped in amazement. It’s not windy today and yet the sky is full, and I mean full, of these massive spider webs that are floating past.  Thing is, some of […]

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 […]

Living in The Shadows of Disasters–From A Texas Coffee Shop The week of April 15, 2013 will long burn in the  psyche of the American fabric as a week of living in the shadows of disasters. It’s Thursday, finally, and so many horrific events have happened in the past week here in North Texas and […]

A week ago this morning I awoke to a beautiful sunny day in North Alabama.  Friday night and most of the day Saturday I’d had a great adventure with a close friend and her family.  Work was going great.  The stress level had dropped immeasurably.  I was in good spirits, though missing my girls back […]
