Free at last
Paul is about to retire after almost 40 years in public service, 20 of those on the federal bench. He has served with intelligence, decency and fairness. Wow are we proud of him. So how does he feel about retiring? He's over the moon. Like a kid on Christma...

Dr. Shady
I love this state ofTexas and its people. So many different cultures and traditions and perspectives surrounding the meaning of life. I was reminded of this at a doctor's visit yesterday. I get sinus infections a couple times a year and use a walk-in clinic...

It's gonna be ok
I heard this morning that bars were opening early tomorrow in D.C. for the spectacle of watching former FBI Director James Comey testify before a Senate committee about what Trump did or did not say. They are calling it a kind of Super Bowl.  I, too, am exc...

I'll have a hamburger, hold the proselytizing
I was standing in line at a popular burger place with my granddaughters ages 5 and 7.  One was ordering the cheeseburger - plain and dry. The other wanted both a hotdog and corndog. As a grandparent, it is my prerogative to say "yes" to all or none of their...

Squirrel lives matter
The critter appeared confused as she stepped into oncoming traffic. Too far away to warn, I held my breath as the little furry cuteness began her trip across the busy residential street.  A few drivers braked, but not all. For sure not everyone could see he...

Samantha is a 3 1/2 year-old border collie. She is loved and well cared for; and she pretty much rules Paul. She is not shy about letting him know it's been 10 minutes since he threw a tennis ball. Sam was adopted on Paul's 60th birthday so she really belon...

Cold Deniers
Texans do not do cold. Mostly, they're in denial. No matter how far in advance the cold is forecast,  practically no one is prepared when the temp dips below freezing. Last night I attended a season opener for girls' high school soccer. Tuesday Night Lights...

End Times? Sure, why not
I am beginning to get why someone might be drawn to extreme prophesy such as end times. After last week's presidential election of someone whose name I can't yet bring myself to say out loud, the idea of an apocalypse at this moment seems quaint. I promised...

I have a lot to live up to
I've thought for some time that my pedigree is pretty good. If that sounds boastful, so be it. By pedigree I mean the quality of folk who came before me. My parents and grandparents and great-grandparents. Except for a great-grandfather, every single one of...
