    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!

A small airplane was delayed at the Dalhart Municipal Airport on Tuesday afternoon.  The delay was due to a concern by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.  Apparently the plane’s identification was questionable, and when the plane made a routine stop in Dalhart to refuel, officers from area law enforcement detained the plane and pilot until the “all clear” was given.

    George Best once said “I have spent a lot of money on booze, birds and classic cars. The rest I just squandered.”  It has also been said that a classic car is the fastest way to a man’s heart, a woman’s eye, and a rich man’s wallet.  While some of this may ring true, it is undeniable that the allure of a fast car, the beauty in a classic, and the passion for motoring is enticing.

Texanisms

    Columns by writers are supposed to be profound; offer some stunning intellect, therefore leaving the reader astonished at some revelation.  This is the reason I have never embarked on a column, as I can often shock but very rarely astonish.

Is there a way to sue someone who served alcohol to someone else that was already clearly intoxicated?

    Question:  Is there a way to sue someone who served alcohol to someone else that was already clearly intoxicated?  Also, I wanted to know whether or not I should have called the police when I saw what I thought was a person being served alcohol even though they were acting like they were drunk already.

The Perfect Friendship

My recent trip to our annual church gathering in Ft Worth caused me to reflect on friendships.  During my few days stay, I reconnected with many people I would include on my friends list.  Chatting with them and catching up on times spent together in the past was refreshing.
