Thursday is the beginning of Spring. However, today it’s Winter. Only in Texas is where you never store Winter or Spring Clothing. I wouldn’t make a good Eskimo! Nor, would I make a good hot weather beach bum. Like the middle of the road. The older I become, the less important little things matter to me.

We are going to have our grandson, Aiden, with us this summer and I have planned a three-day outing at the mouth of Little Saline Creek on the Llano River with him, Colby Brown and Jay Ahlschwede, all 11 yr. Olds, in June. I remember 70 years ago when we went to the river, it took about 15 minutes to pack up and get gone.

Sport supplements have been something I have left to the GNC’s and bodybuilders of the world.- that is until recently when Jeff did a lot of research into them. For all of us who are aging, but still like to play tennis, run, or exercise, there are some things that help. My favorite is d-ribose – a sugar that occurs naturally in the body for fueling the muscles.

Spring officially starts this week, and the weather is warming up nicely, but without any rains we may miss out on most of the wild flowers and green landscapes again this year. I keep wondering about some of the pictures that appear in magazines like Texas Highways, and question just how long ago those photos were taken?

Bitter as the pill may taste, it is one each generation has a hard time swallowing: The piper must be paid. It’s a fundamental truth, muddled, of course, when “layaway plans” were trumped by credit purchases. “Buying now, paying later” is bait easily ingested, sliding down as smoothly as boiled okra in a gullet greased with WD-40. Further, ad people tempt with new pitches to dull our financial senses.

Some ladies were decorating the Stribling Room for a shower the other weekend and were wondering about getting a TV and DVD player so that they could show a slideshow of photos during the event. I said, “Well, we have a TV right here, and it has a DVD that you can use, too.” They exclaimed, “We didn’t know that!” The TV has a large screen that rises up out of the beautiful wooden console, and it always sits in the same place against the wall near the fireplace.

There must be a psychological disconnect between reality and fantasy that occurs when people live with the constant risk of their land breaking loose from the continent and falling into the ocean. Or maybe it’s caused by continued mousse abuse. It could even be a malady brought on when too much surfboard wax is absorbed through the skin of the feet.

Nucleotides are a somewhat new product. They are the building blocks for DNA and RNA - the nucleic acids that are found in every cell of the body. Nucleotides can promote an instantaneous boost in both immunity and energy. They are credited with helping our bodies repair themselves, creating new tissue, maintaining a strong immune system and conducting many other important functions.
