Laughter—Good medicine

    I have read many times that a good laugh is better than medicine.  There have been myriads of reports giving laughter top billing in helping people get well.  It has been known to stimulate the heart, reduce stress, lower bad cholesterol and even lower blood pressure. There must be something to it; there is a whole study dedicated to Laughter as medicine called gelotology, the study of humor and its psychological effects on the human body.

The gusting wind that blew through Dallam and Hartley Counties on Monday caused more than the general annoyances.  A grain elevator owned by Hereford Grain in Hartley was ripped from its foundation by the powerful winds.  It remained nearly in place, having been barricaded in by other undamaged elevators.

“The lady didn’t call the police so far as I know, but could I have been arrested for taking something out of the dumpster?”

Question:  I picked up some fencing material that was sitting next to the dumpster in the alley.  The alley isn’t the one behind my house, but a couple of streets over.  A lady who was dumping her trash while I was putting the fencing material in the bed of my pickup truck said she was going to call the police.  She said it was against the law for me to take anything out of the trash.  I recall reading an Ask the Lawyer column a while back about trash and that if a person throws something away they can’t still claim they own it or something like that.  The lady didn’t call the police so far as I know, but could I have been arrested for taking something out of the dumpster?

    As Dalhart area six-year-olds walk across a stage to accept their Kindergarten diploma, their parents are pondering, “What will the next twelve years bring?” until the youngsters again walk across a stage to accept their high school diploma.  Both are monumental occasions worthy of a day of reverence and celebration.

    When I was about three-years-old, my mother and I took a trip to the local super market.  I was so excited that my mother took just me, and left my three older brothers at home.  I was very happy to have my mother all to myself, and it made me feel like a “big” girl, and not the baby of four children.

The Darker the Night, the Brighter the Sparkle

    My cell phone rang.  It was Chalmer telling me to hurry outside and check out the rainbow.  I dropped what I was doing and gazed toward the darkened sky to catch a glimpse of one of my favorite sights.  No go!  The houses and trees around our house blocked the view of one of my favorite things!  A couple of hours later, he called again. “Run out the front door and see if you can see it; another rainbow.”  Nope! That is one view that even my front porch would not allow. I missed it; twice!
