Gigging for flounders — in blue jeans! by ScottReeseWilley
Jan 05, 2009 | 2 2 comments | 11 11 recommendations | email to a friend
When I was a kid growing up in Port Aransas, I would gig for flounders wearing nothing but blue jeans and tennis shoes. First of all, I couldn't afford waders. Secondly, my older brother would have teased me for "wearing them sissy britches." So I tromped through the cold water until I was in my ...
Black-eyed peas and New Year's by Jason_Collins

For as long as I can remember the New Year’s Day dinner was black-eyed peas and cornbread. My parents tell me that the black-eyed peas are for good luck and the cornbread is for good measure. It is a simple tradition but one that I hope continues. Besides, any cornbread left over makes a great de...

It is New Year’s Eve and time for those dreaded resolutions that we like to make but seldom keep. This year I vow to eat better. No, not necessarily healthier – just better. The world would be a better place if more people would take the time to learn to make pasta or homemade tortillas. Yes, the...

A friend writes that the new year will have its first meteor shower Jan 3 and 4. These are fun to watch but admittedly it is my wife who usually sets the alarm to make sure we don’t miss them. I have always admired the night sky simply because we know so little about what is actually out there. I...

My wife was perusing the Internet this morning and found that our hometown now has Google Street view. Don’t know if they made it to the mission or not. I will have to look into that later. A quick check and Beeville has also been added. Interesting how small the world is becoming. I can’t tell e...
Cats on stage by Jason_Collins

Myself, my wife and another couple for with whom we have become friends, made the trip to San Antonio this past weekend to see Cats. It is an interesting production. The plot is minimal but the lights, sounds and colors easily more than make up for this. Part of what makes these excursions to the...

Why the Big 3 Must Go Bankrupt by TexasOnMyMind

There has never been a company in the history of this nation that needed to go bankrupt more than General Motors does today, unless it is Ford. Or Chrysler. The American automobile industry has been a non-competitive industry since the 1970s, when imported cars from Japan and Germany began making...

*Subject: Our New President, A "Post Turtle"* While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old Texas rancher, whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his election to be our President....
Economy Sour While Home Value Increases? by Saltpork
Nov 12, 2008 | 1 1 comments | 7 7 recommendations | email to a friend
The Chamber of Commerce's lack of support for the recent BISD request for a tax increase had little, if any, influence on my NO vote. Opening the letter from the Appraisal District telling me my home had increased over $7500.00 was a major factor. Of course, I visited the Appraisal District Offic...
