I was fascinated by fellow writer, Larry Woody, in last weeks paper. I really enjoyed that bit of important information. I have been thinking about it ever since I read it. The young deer are getting ready to have their little ones. Larry was warning the public to stay away from them. I have very little trouble keeping my distance from most of the wildlife. Rattle snakes and all of their cousins come to mind. I promise I will never bother them or their young. I have been told that if you carry a flash light, snakes won’t bother you. My old uncle told me about that, and said, “You have to carry it real fast.”

With the shooting deaths in Charleston, South Carolina, combined with the previous deaths in Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland, I have grown increasingly concerned with the issues of race relations in this country. For some reason we can have tolerance for almost anything except someone of another skin tone or people group. This must stop. We must recognize that we are all given our skin tones by our Creator God. If we can root for a person with a darker color than ours on our favorite sports team, than we must stop the nonsense of racial prejudice.

Recently we ran across an article that suggested that children live for the smile of their father. We thought there was power in that sentiment. Dad may not have to utter a word. His smile of approval or delight toward his children can lift a child higher than any trophy.

One of the ways I think my bridge improved (somewhat) is by my partner and me dealing out hands and bidding them to see if we were on the same wave length or what we needed to decide on how to bid certain things.

One of the biggest challenges we all face is time management. You probably look at your daily to-do list and say, “how could I possibly fit in another thing?” You’re not alone.

“Much as we may wish to make a new beginning, some part of us resists doing so as though we were making the first step toward disaster.” — William Throsby Bridges, 19th century Australian soldier

The future of health care has been a debate in this country for a long, long time, and it finally came to a resolution this week when the Supreme Court voted 6-3 to allow the poor and middle class to receive subsidies to pay for the cost of health insurance.

The idea of “time travel” isn’t confined to science fiction. It is actually possible. I have done it. Most of us have.

Donald Trump was born in a 300-room log cabin in Trumptown (formerly known as Queens), New York in 1946 and elected president of the U.S. in 2016. From his humble beginnings as the son of an extremely wealthy real estate developer, he lifted himself up by his bootstraps to become an extremely wealthy real estate developer. His struggle to remain rich taught him many life lessons that came in handy on his way to the highest office in the land.

Hi. You don’t know me, and I certainly don’t know you, at least not by name.
