The Yellow Limo is a rolling! The excitement of the first week of school is here. It’s also heard in the, now, quiet households, too! I wonder how many mothers said, “YES,” the first day! Too, how many students said, “OH, NO!” It’s not that the mothers don’t love and enjoy having their children around making noise, spilling drinks, chips and other assorted foods on the floors, it’s the QUIET TIME that was lost at the end of the school year.

With school starting up it nice to have something that isn’t too time consuming in the evening. For a quick lunch or casual supper, these are ready to eat in 20 minutes. You might even want to get the kids involved in helping make these. You can also add other toppings, such as pepperoni, Parmesan cheese or other veggies. ½ lb.

The weather continues to be hot and dry, and although there are occasional chances of rain in the forecast I seldom see a cloud capable of dropping any moisture and have not seen any rain in town for the past several weeks. The City continues to struggle to keep the water supply tanks full so that we can meet all of the needs of our residents, but we need your help to manage this.

We had the largest turnout of the year for Wednesday’s Scramble, with 24 eager golfers showing up to play. Playing conditions were excellent, with little wind, and temperatures below 100 by the time we teed off at 5:30. The five teams worked their way around the course, and by 7:30, the groups began to come back to the club house to post their scores.

I think we have told enough of the bad of the London Community so I will bring forth an effort to have some funnies in regard to the activities of those in and around London. About a year ago, I met Don Daniels at Willow Creek Café in Mason and we began discussing some of the events of London.

There is much to be gained--we’re begged to believe--in exercise engagement, even if it’s simply kicking cans on down the road. In so doing, however, we’re guilty of more than “messing with Texas.” Don’t look now--or maybe you should--but the cans are stacking up. So many--from the White House, state house, courthouse and finally to our house--litter our world.

As the super hot and dry dog days of August continue we can only wish for the cooler wetter fall and winter so we can wish for the warmer weather of summer. Good ol’ Texas weather. My little dog wants to go for marathon walks but she has realized that it’s really too hot during the day so she now prefers the hours between 11:00PM and 6:00AM.

What. What would we do without “what”? What’s new, Pussycat? What’s up, Doc? What’s it all about, Alfie? What’s the problem? What’s happening? Que passa? What’s done is done. What’s a mother to do? What would Jesus do? What do you mean? What do you say? Please. And thank you. What difference does it make? What do you know? What do you think? What happened? What was it? What’s the matter? What the world needs now is love, sweet love. What’s love got to ...

One thing I’ve always wondered about is why a fine is called a ‘fine.’ Say you get caught picking tomatoes from your neighbor’s garden in an unauthorized manner, and your neighbor objects, and you get crossways with the law. You’re liable to have to pay a fine, which is not really fine.

It is BACK TO SCHOOL time. Now is a good time to start a vitamin regimen to boost immunity and brain function. I have a basic three that I like for anyone school age (teachers can do this too.) It includes a multi-vitamin, a fish oil (brain food), and an immune booster.

A very nice group of golfers showed up for the weekly Scramble on Wednesday, August 12th. The temperature was hovering in the 100 degree area, and off to the north and east, storm clouds were forming. Everyone would have welcomed a “rain out,” but, alas, the storm moved around us, to the east and south, and finally dissipated.
