I declare, the older I get, the more Democratic I become. I hate to admit this as Fort Bend is such a red county in such a red state, but I just can’t stand all the silliness going on in Washington now with the Republicans leading the pack. I thought when President Obama won his […]

My grandchildren–perfect……. This week my grandson and namesake, Carter, wrote his second column. He wrote his first column week before last. As it were, I thought he was going to be a one column flash in the pan. Perhaps he is going to be a two column flash in the pan if more people don’t […]

Here’s one for the gifter….. My television was out all day Saturday (I hate Comcast), so from boredom I wrapped all my presents. Now you must know that I take great pride in my gift wrapping and wrap them with certain wrapping paper for certain gifts and great bows that I make myself. Of course, […]

The search is on…..Bev’s Burner received a copy of a letter from a fan that had been sent to all board members. I would like to run it here as I totally agree with the letter writer. Dear Sir/Madam, Since 1995 to the present, there have been four superintendents of FBISD with only one, the […]

If it’s Tuesday…….I don’t know how many new names the various public relations agencies can come up with but there is a new one this year that I think is dandy. So far we have Black Friday (signifying where stores are supposed to get into the black for the year and be profitable); Small Business […]

Gobble, gobble…..Many of our well-to-do neighbors will spend today (Wednesday) packing their vehicles to travel out of town for the Thanksgiving holidays. The poor can’t afford to go anywhere and the rich are flying. A lot of those travelling out of town by vehicle are going to their “country place” or “weekend place.” They call […]

Never mind…..I said last week that I was going to “save rubbing your nose in it” (about the presidential election) until this week, but I’ve changed my mind. Nothing would be accomplished by that and when I lose and someone rubs my nose in it, it just ticks me off rather that helps me learn […]

By the time you read this…..The Sturm und Drang are over, at least for another four years. I’ve yet to see a woman president and think at this point I will not live to see that. This column goes to press before the final count for the president although there were some pundits who said […]

Scoundrel and fools…..I know I revealed last week that I was supporting Barack Obama but I want to add a few more observations. Mitt Romney has promised the citizens of America everything under the sun. He sort of lowers his head then looks up at the camera wistfully like he is about to ask you […]

Yes, I really am an independent…..The following are SOME of the people I know right now that I will be voting for. I’ll probably make up my mind about some more next week. President Barack Obama-Democrat First, I’m going to vote for Barack Obama. I voted for him four years ago and I’m willing to […]
