5 Things We Know On A Sunday

  1. No two people will ever agree on how to load a dishwasher, how to put silverware up in a drawer or how pots and pans should be arranged. No matter how long you may be married, a year or forty, it will not matter. Neither person will change and both parties will do it their way. That also means you have to accept that when they rearrange what you’ve done, it’s not a reflection upon you as a person. It’s merely an admission that you’re willing to let the other person be wrong, so they will feel good about themselves and be happy after correcting your ”mistake”. 🙂 This is also one of the truest tests of relationships. Fact.
  2. I love the fact that we’ve got so many viewing options when it comes to ”TV” programs these days via HBO, Netflix, other streaming services, you name it. It’s great. I also miss being able to have conversations with folks across the spectrum of race, age or income when it comes to shows. Now everyone is watching something different. There’s little commonality. Gone are the days of everyone being able to talk about the latest episode of Seinfeld or Friends, Cheers or Frasier…you get the idea. Now the conversation is,”Have you seen ____? Oh, you haven’t. You gotta see it…” Meanwhile we respond, ”I’m binge-watching ___ don’t you love it?” And they respond…”Nope, haven’t had time to watch that one, can’t wait though”. No commonality. No common ground. We keep putting ourselves into our own little boxes and we wonder why the public discourse goes the way it does these days… Mass Media used to bring us together. I miss M*A*S*H.
  3. Top 3 West Texas Smells. No. 3. Cattle. No. 2. Oil. No. 1. Rain.
  4. “Pure Country” is at once, one of the worst movies and one of the greatest movies of all-time. Admit it. When you catch it playing on TV you stop and watch for a bit. You can quote parts of the movie. And above all else, you hated Buddy Jackson and Lula Rogers. Was it a great movie? Nope. Is it one great movie to watch? Yep.
  5. There’s not much better than a rainy, cloudy Sunday morning in West Texas. Enjoy it, y’all.
