  • Or So it Seems … Saying Goodbye To Books

    I lugged two boxes to my classroom, my arms aching. Once there, I spread out scores of books on the table in the front of the room. “Take one or two,” I said. “There’s some good stuff here.”   My students exchanged puzzled glances, and then a couple darted forward.

    The Stillwater Water Business Park has been in the news looking for it’s first tenant. How about contacting Huy Fong Foods, the manufacturer of  Sriracha ”Rooster” Hot Sauce, to see if they’d like to relocate?

    Once a year, in April, my house tries to kill me. That’s when I go to the rooftop to prance around, attempting to revive my aging swamp cooler. Sure, I’m up there in the fall, too. But it’s no problem to cork it up, and shut it down. Simple. But my spring rendezvous to reawaken [...]

    Or So it Seems … Shipping Out – One Box at a Time

    The phone rings, and it’s my son, Joe, calling from the Naval Training Center. He’s got good news. His hard work and solid test scores have moved him up the food chain a bit and earned him additional privileges. We share a father-son Hooyah, and I put down the cordless phone to do the “happy [...]
