School daze…….Although he is (mostly) a Republican and I am (mostly) a Democrat, besides the ambivalence about our  political beliefs, Joe Scarborough and I have one thing in common. Today, Tuesday, April 9 is both of our birthdays. Sadly, I noticed he had to do his “Morning Joe” TV show and I have to write […]

Okay, listen up real careful……I told you a couple of weeks ago that the new publisher of the “Star” was my son Michael Fredrickson because he had been the real publisher for the past 15-20 years anyway. I quit work during the O.J. trial when I went home to watch it and never came back. […]

When your chickens come home to roost…….We had a funny thing happen at the newspaper a couple of weeks ago. Well, it was sort of serious and funny at the same time. The boys at the newspaper on the other side of the river, the Herald Coaster, or whatever they are calling it nowadays, have […]

It’s been fun!!!!! In a couple of weeks (April 9 in fact), I’ll be 72. It’s hard to believe that I’ll reach that rarefied age and if I knew I was gonna live this long, I would have not only taken better care of my teeth, but I would have NEVER smoked! Be that as […]

WARNING! Do not drive thru Missouri City…….Maybe you shouldn’t even go over there to shop. Because if you do and one of its gang-bangers runs over you, you may be charged anywhere from $500 to $2,000 for the police to come. And since every wreck is attended to by a fire truck, there may be […]

Car 54, we know where you are…..I wrote a couple of weeks ago about how the sheriff had taken some cars away from those in his department who didn’t really need them and had given them to some of the constables. What I didn’t explain is the car situation in the constable offices. Several of […]

Who in the heck?……thinks I want or need woodworking plans. I get oodles of e-mail every day. I’ve never counted because I have too much other things to do, but I get some crazy emails. They seem to run in packs. It was Canadian medicine for several months, then it was guaranteed loans. Lately it […]

Take cover, I’m back…..Okay, admit it now. You thought I was dead. Who am I fooling? I thought I was dead. I don’t know what I had, but I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. Oh, wait a minute now. I got a flu shot at Ed’s Pharmacy. They claim it was real. And […]

I’m getting better……. I settled in for a long winter day Monday as I watched almost the entire inauguration event. It was wonderful. Everyone behaved beautifully, even the Republicans. Of course no telling how many were meeting secretly in some 5-star restaurant, plotting ways to keep Obama from another term. Just kidding. Even Republicans know […]

“The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” Mark Twain……Someone asked my son the other day if I were still alive and I thought of the above Mark Twain quip. However, there have been days in the past two weeks when I might have wished the above. I’ve never had back trouble before and I […]
