5 Things We Know On A Sunday
5 Things today brought to you by our great friends at Lifts West in Red River , New Mexico. If they light snow this Saturday got you thinking you need to head to the slopes of Red River, Lifts West is the place to stay!
- When your wife tells you to go to the Doctor, go to the Doctor…. I waited and it nearly cost me. Started the New Year getting treated for pneumonia ( even though I was still a few hours away from really having it, but hey, who is keeping score!). If it wasn’t for my wife I’d have missed even more time with y’all than I did. New Year’s Resolution? I promise to listen to my wife and not tell myself “it’s just a cold/allergies for a full month before going in. So, let’s make 2020 a healthy year and listen to our wives guys!
- If you’ve got young kids, I want you to do this. The next time you’re out and see a police officer or firefighter, introduce your kid and let them know that that person may very well save their life or mom and dad’s life if anything bad happens. Even in West Texas too many kids don’t see officers and first responders as friends. So, make it happen. You never know when your child may desperately need that officer or firefighter’s help and you’re not around to guide them. . . Help your child understand that officers are just normal folks, ready to help them!
- Top 3 Lubbock restaurants that no longer exist: 1. Gardski’s Loft. Iconic. Great for lunch and perfect for first dates. The upstairs bar had dollar drinks back in the day. Yep, you’d drink a screwdriver on Wednesday night if it was just a dollar no matter how manly you were. 2. Western Sizzlin’. If you know, you know. 3. Martinez Mexican food on Slide and 50th St. Back in the 1980’s this was a go-to place. Nothing fancy and that’s what made it great. Free margaritas and the sopapillas that were fantastic. ( My little brother Matt called them “Sophia’s” …. very awkward when he ordered that… )
- Greek yogurt. Honey vanilla with granola. You’re welcome.
- “Tom Sawyer”. It’s the song that convinced me I would never be able to play drums. I wasn’t much better on guitar, but trying to come close to duplicating what Neil Peart was doing on the Moving Pictures album just reinforced to me what my career path would not involve. Drums. I’ve never seen a better drummer in person. I’ve never heard a better drummer on tape. Rest well, Neil and thanks for the heartbeat to a generation of rock.
