5 Things We Know On Christmas Night

December 25, 2018

5 Things We Know On Christmas Night Yes Virginia, it is entirely possible to eat too much on your first round of helpings that you miss out on pie. I did not make that rookie mistake this year. I backed off a little on everything but the BBQ. I was ready for the chocolate cream pie. It wasn’t easy, but I did it. The other key was limiting the pre-meal…

5 Things We Know On A Sunday – From Mustard To Sniglets, The Eagles To Washing Machines

December 16, 2018

5 Things We Know On A Sunday I have downsized our condiment selection in our refrigerator at home. We now have just basic mustard and spicy ketchup from Whataburger. That’s all we need. That’s all anyone needs. No more 13 different bottles of artisan mustards. More room for eggnog now!  Every now and again you’ll hear a song you haven’t heard in a while and be reminded of how great…


5 Things We Know On A Sunday – From Guessing The Weather To Getting It Right At City Hall, Christmas Songs To Army/Navy Plus A Reason To Go To The Mall

December 9, 2018

5 Things We Know On A Sunday  Just remember that many, not all, of the highly-trained weather folks who couldn’t tell you how much it was gonna snow within half-a-foot or so the other day are some of the same people who want to tell you with great “scientific” certainty what the temperature is gonna be around here 100 years from now.

5 Things We Know On A Sunday – From Thanksgiving To Sammy Kershaw, Mustard Winning The Cold War & More

November 18, 2018

5 Things We Know On A Sunday     It’s not that I am anti-turkey, It’s that I’m just so pro-ham. I’m as traditional as anyone when it comes to Thanksgiving and other holidays but I freely admit if I never had turkey again for Thanksgiving I’d be just fine. Dressing, yes! My Mom makes the best. Personally I could just eat the dressing and gravy, have some dinner rolls and…

November 12, 2018

5 Things We Know In The Mountains     Breakfast is always better in the mountains. It doesn’t matter how hungry you are, at 8,671 feet, biscuits, gravy, eggs and bacon are just better. Heck, I had a sausage burger this morning at Shotgun Willies in Red River, New Mexico and it nearly lasted throughout the day. Nearly. Because lunch and supper are pretty tasty in the mountains as well. Mountain…

November 4, 2018

5 Things We Know On A Sunday   We can all agree that now that we have these things called “electricity” and “lights” that we can end Daylight Savings Time in The United States Of America, right. Right? Most likely this Tuesday, Lubbock folks are gonna approve of the county giving some folks tax money  upwards of 50 million dollars to build a rodeo arena that no knows who will…


5 Things We Know On A Sunday – From Jerry Jeff Walker To Adrian Beltre, A Lost Lubbock Cafe And A Disappearing Month. . .

July 29, 2018

5 Things We Know On A Sunday    Hard to believe that after 30 years, the quaint 82nd St. Cafe has closed down. Thirty years is a heck of a run for any eatery in any town, particularly Lubbock. Whether breakfast or a hearty lunch, 82nd St. was always there for ya, tucked away a little bit back from the street. It will hold a special place in my heart,…
