I asked my wife where she wanted to go this summer. She said, “Someplace cool.” So we went to Iceland, the western most part of Europe. The capital city of Reykjavik is the most northern capital city in the world. In preparing for the trip we watched several videos but none were as beautiful…

With many thanks to RADIO STATION KCOM, Comanche, they have invited me to come in on Friday at 12:00 am to tape a radio program about Comanche County history. I have tried to keep these stories told in a time line. Right now, I am on the WAR BETWEEN THE STATES. Yes, The Civil War. Many peopl…

Growing up, everyone ate PB&J sandwiches and an apple for lunch. Today’s lunch boxes (or recyclable bags) look a lot different - especially for kids like my own who have no interest in sandwiches. Whether your kids simply don’t like sandwiches or can’t eat them because they’re allergic t…

School bells are ringing across the area, and we wish all the students and personnel the best school year ever! Don’t forget to drive cautiously through the school zones. As we all know, sometimes children are not paying attention when they cross the street!

Usually on an interview trip I’m gone about 3 days. This time I took an entire week and it proved worthwhile. I came home with 30 interviews and they were all stellar. The trip started in Milford near Waxahachie where I interviewed Cliff Yeary, a colorful blacksmith who lost an eye to an arr…

Our nearest star, the Sun, lies roughly 93 million miles from the Earth. Having a diameter of 880,000 miles it is 100 times the size of Earth. Over a million Earth-sized planets could fit inside it. It’s the largest object in our Solar System, but it pales in comparison to many of the stars …

One of my favorite magazines I get is the Texas Coop Power magazine, which is celebrating its 75th Anniversary (1944 – 2019). It has very interesting, informative, well-written articles (some written by Comanche’s Shirley Dukes) and good recipes, as well as always supporting farm and ranch f…

The thing about having a temporary setback (like my broken foot) is when you start telling someone about your situation, many of them will start telling you their experiences with broken bones that make yours seem trivial. I was in a wheel chair for about 4 months. During that time, some peo…

We went to see the movie ROCKETMAN the other day. Matinee. Didn’t know what the crowd would be like, although we didn’t buy tickets before getting to the theater. The movie had been out a couple of weeks. At the box office, there was a seating chart and we chose to sit in the middle about 3 …

The Dog Days of Summer are here, but we surprisingly woke up to some of the lowest temperatures ever on Tuesday morn. Ah . . . it was nice, sitting outside drinking my coffee. But, as we know, August is almost here and the summer temperatures will heat up.
