This is one of those recipes that I came across while perusing a stack of old magazines that one of my sisters was getting ready to take to the recycling center. Several things caught my eye. The use of a can of mandarin orange; cottage cheese; quick cooking oats; all in the same recipe!

Lucas Hinch did what I’ve wanted to do many, many times over the years. No doubt you’ve wanted to do it, too. But you didn’t, because as much as you wanted to do it you knew, deep down, that it would have made you feel really, really good. And there’s no telling where that would have led. Lucas got mad at his computer, just like I’ve done, just like you’ve done, countless times.

Everyone knows the library loans out books, and most people now know that we loan DVDs. Some people may know about our books on CD, but I’ll bet there are a lot of people who don’t know that we loan magazines in both print and downloadable forms. We also have downloadable audiobooks and eBooks.

The Mason Lions club met Tuesday, June 23rd, for its regular weekly meeting. There were 27 members and two visitors in attendance. Lion Charlie Reichenau was responsible for the program; but, due to so much discussion about nominations for the new slate of officers and directors, there was not enough time left for the program.

It is said, “There is a right way and a wrong way.” However, they left out “Momma’s Way!” Why is there a Momma’s Way? Be cause she said so! One, should not dispute Momma’s Way. She may not know all there is to know, but she knows more than you and I know.

Summer is here. It has been a great summer with regular rain showers and beautiful sunny days between showers. Our community is saddened by the passing of Clara McInnis. When she came to live with her daughter, Virginia Durst, we adopted her as our granny also. She lived a long life and leaves behind many family and friends and lots of great memories. My mother’s family, the Alfred and Ida Kensing family, had a reunion at the Golden Hub in Fredericksburg on Saturday.

INDIGESTION - From gas and bloating to acid reflux - if you have it, you want to get rid of it. But don’t fall for something that just gets rid of the symptoms, look to address the underlying cause. Most indigestion is the result of INSUFFICIENT ENZYMES and/or INSUFFICIENT STOMACH ACID.

This week was a ton of fun….lots of bats, but late emergences. Current emergence time is 8:57 p.m. One group that visited was a three generation family that was WOWED by the emergence. (See photo). Every day is an adventure at the Eckert James River Bat Cave. If it rains we can’t open.

Every week, in this column I like to spotlight one of our seniors, workers, volunteers and more. This week our Director, Mario Arteaga, suggested that I spotlight me. What? Oh, I keep forgetting that I am a senior too. Of course, I forget pretty much everything. Just ask anyone who knows me. Spotlight I was born in Athens, Texas in 1948 while my parents were vacationing.

YouTube preserves much--some of it worthwhile--about what has been said. It proves yet again that when everything is said and done, usually more is said than done. This day, the spotlight is on responses of game show contestants, who simply become “clabber-headed,” casting nervous glances toward microphones, cameras and spotlights.

One of my favorite hobbies is procrastinating, although I don’t get around to doing it as much as I used to. You might think I procrastinated by waiting until this week to write about Father’s Day, since it was Sunday, but I really didn’t. I just forgot about it. There’s a difference. Father’s Day is kind of a junior varsity holiday, anyway.

As usual, and I like the response, I received information about the London Hammer of which I was unaware other than general information. M. R. Cole, who was Nita’s P. T. from recent injuries, etc owns property above the Yates Crossing, has this to offer, for what it may be worth. Mark has a twin brother who lives in Glenrose and is acquainted with the Creation Scientist there named Carl Baugh, who has the Creation Museum, and does interesting experiments and displays the LONDON HAMMER.
