No doubt I’ve mentioned this before, but one of my favorite movies is Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It’s about a guy named Monte who has this Grail, which is Holy, and he can’t find it, so he gets a bunch of guys to travel around with him and help him look for it.

Growing up, I thought that only the bad guys wore black hats. I knew that there were bad people, but I didn’t know any. I thought WRONG. There is so much greed, vengeance, and hating that I no longer can look through those “Rose colored glasses.” When did everything go to pot?

Spring seems to have settled in with the trees budding out green and the wildflowers putting on a bright show. I have had several people tell me that as they travel around looking at bluebonnets that the best showing is right here in Mason County, and when I have had time to drive out and enjoy them I am impressed with the wonderful patches of color and spring life.

We all know the benefits of regular physical activity – increased energy, better cardiovascular health, reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke and looking more svelte. But about 80 percent of Americans don’t make exercise a regular habit, and, according to a 2012 American Heart Association website survey, 14 percent say they don’t like exercise.

I have reached that place in life that virtually all that I see, hear or do reminds me of something that’s already happened, often decades ago. As an example, when whisked to the top of a skyscraper recently by state-of-the-art elevator, I thought of its association with music we liked to joke about in another century.

Ding-dong. The witch is dead. The wicked witch is dead. And the deadline is here. Taxes are due. By midnight. Or else. Gulp. After that, relax. Sit a spell. Take a break. Take a walk. Take a nap.

On Highway 87 just west of the square. And then there’s the Mason County Library. And it’s a good ...

Now, if you’re like me, you’re probably not happy about the ban on lead shot for hunting waterfowl. Honestly, I don’t believe the lead shot does any damage at all. As far as I can tell, lead shot lying in water does no more harm to waterfowl than it does when it’s coming out of my shotgun at more than 1,000 feet per second.

Recently Z had a part replaced on one of his pieces of equipment and told me,”It has a life time warranty.” Okay, if they can make a part that has a life time warranty on it, then why don’t they put that part on in the beginning. Seems like a rip off to me.
