The hottest weather of the year is scheduled to hit Dalhart on Friday with mercury reaching triple digits.  Friday’s hot spell will only be surpassed by Saturday’s, when 100 degrees will seem cool compared to 104.  The overnight lows will provide much needed relief when temps drop back into the middle sixties.

“I Can See!”

My husband has worn corrective lenses since third grade.  As soon as he was old enough, he got contacts, which he has worn for over fifty years.  Recently, we both needed to update our glasses so we made appointments. The doctor was appalled to learn that Chalmer has been wearing hard contacts all these years and never changed to the soft, friendlier-to-the-eyes, contacts!  Because of this the doctor told him he had to wear glasses until his cornea, which now resembled a road map, settled down.

The story of Memorial Day begins in the summer of 1865, when a prominent local druggist, Henry C. Welles, mentioned to some of his friends at a social gathering that while praising the living veterans of the Civil War it would be well to remember the patriotic dead by placing flowers on their graves.

    School is out for the summer, kids are playing in the parks and temperatures are on the rise.  With summer come thunderstorms and tornado warnings, both of which have already become a part of the weather reports nearly daily.  Summer also brings temps nearing the 90’s and 100’s, so staying cool is important to avoid heat related illnesses.

If you get sued and the person knows that they really have no
cause of action against you, can their lawsuit get thrown out?

    Question:  I have been sued by someone claiming that I caused serious bodily injury to them in a car wreck last year.  I was never even in a car wreck with this person, and I am sure that they know they have sued the wrong person because of the way the paperwork is worded.  Is there some law that says if you get sued and the person knows that they really have no cause of action against you, that their lawsuit can get thrown out?

I am not a soldier, but I know quite a few. I respect them greatly and am glad for what they have done or do.  In honor of Memorial Day I write this poem, from the perspective of a modern day soldier.  Perhaps it will provide new perspective to those who are distant from the reality of the war(s), so rarely spoken about in daily media, or simply be relatable to the men and women who have or currently are serving in the best military in the world. God bless America and the soldiers who protect her.

Here Comes Trouble

Ever had one of those days when you aren’t sure if you want to answer the phone again and risk meeting up with more trouble?  Everyone wants a piece of you and you have given out and given out until you feel like a piece of elastic that has lost its ability to stretch.

“Do I need to probate my mom’s estate in order to receive the monies left in that account?”

    Question:  My mother recently passed away.  She didn’t really have any property.  She didn’t live in a house that she owned and she didn’t have a car.  All she had was a checking account where her Social Security check went each month.  I think I remember that she told me that I was a beneficiary to that checking account.  Do I need to probate my mom’s estate in order to receive the monies left in that account?  She was able to live on less than her monthly income so I believe that the account has a significant amount of money in it.
