  • By Roger AlfordA old man stomped angrily into a jewelry shop and waved his wristwatch in the face of the owner.
    “You said this watch would last me a lifetime,” he yelled.
    “Yes, I did,” the owner acknowledged. “But you looked pretty sickly the day you bought it.”
    Taking a guess at how long someone might live is risky business. Read the obituary page of any newspaper and you find that people of every age are leaving this side of eternity every day. Some are young. Some are middle-aged. Some are elderly.

  • I am getting a late start this morning. I turned on the TV in the kitchen to see how the storm in Texas was doing and couldn’t tear myself away. It’s like a bad tooth. You know it’s going to hurt, but you keep putting your tongue in it anyway. We are dry as a bone, and the grass is brown. We haven’t had rain in a while and Texas and parts of the Gulf Coast are inundated. The news man said they could get up to 50 inches before this is over. My mind just can’t fathom it, and the rain is not supposed to stop before Wednesday.
