5 Things We Know On A Sunday – From Mac&Cheese To Star Wars, What Should Be Taught In Schools To Profiling To West Texas Truth

5 Things We Know On A Sunday

  1. Macaroni and cheese is the perfect side for any meal. The same can be said for fried okra. If you’re somewhere you can’t get either one as a side… watch out!
  2. Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi are really the only “Star Wars” movie you need to watch.
  3. Every school should offer a course for all seniors called, ” Stupid Things To Do That Will Screw Up Your Life”. A full semester of folks coming in offering real-world stories on the dumb things they’ve done to make life harder than it should be. I could teach the first 4-6 weeks. . .
  4. I’m guilty of profiling. Every day. When I see a man not wearing cowboy boots I kinda wonder what’s wrong.
  5. Every day, Lubbock gets bigger and West Texas gets smaller. . .



  1. 5 More Things;

    1. Something is missing, from music and movies, today. No matter what genre of music you most enjoy, or category of movie you love the most…comedy, adventure, action, western…what’s being shoved in our faces, today, is no match for the quality if music writing and lyricism of music pre-1990, or screenwriting, acting and directing of movies pre-1990. For the last 30 years, music and movies are released as a way to make money, not as a way to entertain or for an artist to share, with the world, what brings him/her great joy. With the onset of the “more special effects = more money” mentality in movies, and the “more shocking and less thinking” mentality, in music…both have no soul, today.

    2. Not enough people understand the difference between a football team that’s exciting to watch, and a successful football team. Those folks are ready to fire Coach Wells, whining that Tech never should have fired Kingsbury. I get it, but I don’t get it.

    3. Speaking of boots… when you find the right pair, like a good dog, they become part of you.

    4. When you’re with family, always take pictures. Lots of pictures. In future years, you’ll be thankful you did.

    5. Surprisingly, a good Eagles tune works great as a lullaby, to sing as you rock a baby to sleep. No bonus points, though, if you can carry a tune. The baby doesn’t know any better. Hotel California works really well. I promise.
