Question on Oil and Gas development.

I’m writing a sequel to “From The Delta Mud.” The setup for this one is that this guy makes it big in the dotcom industry. Around the turn of the century he sells out and buys back the family farm, lost in the late 80s. What he doesn’t know is that the bank has separated the mineral rights from the ...

Glasses worked OK up until the last few months. It was the cataracts that forced the issue. It was getting to where I couldn't see, even with glasses. I had to do something.

Got a new eye.

I had cataract surgery yesterday (1/26/18) They replaced the lens with a toric lens. (The best I can tell, "Toric" is latin for expensive.) First day after surgery — WOW! Only minor downside I knew about before surgery, I need reading glasses. Up until the last few months I could still read without ...

Re: Take a Knee Updated

I was recording the game. I usually let it go for a while so I can zip past commercials and half-time. The second I saw them locking arms during the National Anthem rather than place their hands over their hearts, I deleted the recording. I'm done with the NFL. Now of only Arkansas could win a game.

Re: How Concealed do You have to be at work?

We’ve got a new breed taking over corporate. The old guard managed to get the employee handbook changed from terminated for carrying a “weapon” to carrying an “illegal weapon,” just before they left. I’m in a building full of “reporters” most of whom would probably pass out if they knew I was carryi...

Re: United Blood Services 30.06 sign need your opinion

I donate platelets at LifeShare in Texarkana. I stopped going for a while after the 30.06 sign went up. Most of the people who work there think the idea is about as smart as a screen door in a submarine, but they don’t make the rules. They begged me to come back because I’m always good for a double ...

Re: One song that "speaks" to you

I was just starting Chapter 3 of my fourth book when I ran across this on FB. Holy Smoke! I couldn't believe how timely it was and I listened to it over and over as I wrote the next three chapters.

Re: Attempted robbery thwarted by armed jogger

Article I read said potential victim did not have a LTC. Police reported to have said they will turn information that over to the D.A. Wonder what will happen to him.

When I get one, I will hug him, and stroke him, and cuddle him, and sing to him, and call him George.
