“Is there a way for me to see
my wife’s banking records?”

    Question:  My wife and I are going through a divorce.  We are trying to handle it without attorneys, but my wife has not provided me with anything showing how much money she has in her bank accounts, or if she had gotten any new bank accounts.  When I ask her about it, she is evasive, and it has me thinking that she is either spending money in a manner she doesn’t want me to know about or she has accounts that I don’t know about.  Is there a way for me to see my wife’s banking records?

Warm Fuzzy February!

    February is “home” to St. Valentines Day; the day when “hearts” turn toward fiery friendships in our lives that give us a “warm fuzzy” feeling.  There are those who think big, rent billboards, go to “Jared’s,” or buy time on a radio station to surprise that “special someone” in their life.  Companies like Hallmark Cards and Russell Stover love the month of February!  Chocolate in abundance; who can beat that?

    The Wolves traveled to Lubbock Friday for their last game of the season.  A win would keep their playoff hopes alive, but the number four ranked team in the state would have something to say about that.  Estacado got off to a great start as they used their speed and quickness to shut down the passing lanes for the Wolves and force a lot of turnovers, which resulted in fast break points for the Matadors.  Estacado took an early 13-0 lead before Thomas Allen scored with five minutes left in the first quarter.  Coach Walker used a time out with the Wolves trailing 17-2, but the Estacado speed was just too much for Dalhart.  Thomas Allen made a three-foot jump shot to end the first quarter at 4-21.

    Donald Kendall was once quoted as saying, “The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.”  I, as a writer, interviewing many people, have come to the conclusion that everyone has a story, but not all are interesting.  However, once in a great while you hear something profound from someone, something that resonates over and over in your mind.
