Will we soon have smart cars?

posted: 01/29/2014 5 a.m.

Many men, like myself, like to talk cars and trucks; and there seems always to be much to talk about. I m fascinated by the evolving of automotive designs over time. Interestingly, as one thinks in terms of the whole of human history, the history of the automobile is very short. Whereas human beings have driven horses for thousands of years, motor driven vehicles such as cars and trucks have only been around since the 1890s, only about 120 years. But in the space of those few years the changes and advancements have been amazing.

Library use increasing

posted: 01/29/2014 5 a.m.

Last week 111 second grade students visited the library! There were 67 on Monday afternoon and 44 on Tuesday afternoon. There is nothing that can make a librarian s heart sing like seeing the expressions on those children s faces when they see all the books in the library. They were polite, respectful, quiet and full of questions. We loved having them there. Maybe this is the beginning of a tradition. Thank you students, teachers and parents for making this such an enjoyable event.

When I was a boy, we used to enjoy stories about the pioneers who settled the Old West, as we called it. Western movies were really popular, as were Western comic books, radio shows and early TV shows. The Lone Ranger and Tonto were a regular part of my days. I m not fully sure whether the appeal of the Lone Ranger shows were the drama of law enforcement in the wild, wild west, or if the appeal of the great music was the key.

An old-time country winter

posted: 01/15/2014 5 a.m.

A few days ago I was talking to Winona Woods about memories of growing up in the 1940s and 1950s, and especially memories of our country winter times. Like many kids around Pea Ridge, Garfield and Gateway, we were country kids, and by the time we were of school age we were used to having chores to do around the house and on the farm, including in the cold of winter. We were reminiscing about carrying in wood for the fire and carrying buckets of water which we had drawn from the well into the house. We always had our woodpile out back of the house, so it was often covered with snow and ice, and we would freeze our fingers while getting our armload of wood broken free and bundled in our arms, and then would gingerly make our way up the ice-coated back steps. Winona was telling of how as she carried her bucket of water from the well, the water wanted to slosh out and douse her pant legs and run down into her shoes, so she got back to the house with half a bucket of water and frozen feet and legs. Although it was fun to think back and talk about it, we were feeling blessed to be talking about it while we were sitting in our warm houses and speaking over telephones which we didn t have back then.

Beginning the new year

posted: 01/08/2014 5 a.m.

We were sitting at the breakfast table a few days ago and somehow got to talking about how we had just passed the shortest day of the year, and winter was officially here. Of course it means little to complain about the dark and dreary days, but we were lamenting how early the dark comes in the evening these days. Even though two months have passed now since Daylight Savings Time ended, we still aren t accustomed to the early sunset every day. I was reminded of how my mother-in-law, Zula Patterson, used to say, in almost every letter to us, I just wish they d leave this time alone! Of course she was wishing they d just forget Daylight Savings time entirely, whereas we might like the longer evening light all through the year. I was reminded that for farm people, the idea of tinkering with the clocks always seemed kind of foolish; since we went by the sun all year, whatever the clock said at any given time of day.

New beginnings are exciting

posted: 01/08/2014 5 a.m.

The first day of each New Year, I think of all the resolutions I ve made in the past, most of which I never kept. Statistics show only an eight percent success rate in New Year s goals. New beginnings are sort of exciting. In the past I ve resolved to lose weight, eat healthier, exercise more all to improve myself. This year I need to gain weight; who would have ever thought! I lost my appetite a few years ago and each new situation makes me less able to eat. My oncology nurse told me to eat calories, like lots of butter, ice cream, milk shakes all those foods I tried to avoid much of my life.

Extending Christmas giving throughout the year

posted: 01/01/2014 5 a.m.

I ve been noting several ideas floating around for extending Christmas, some old, some new. Some seem to think of extending Christmas as a way to keep getting gifts that you don t have to pay for, like winning the lottery, or winning at the casino. Neither the lottery or casino existed in my early life, and I really wish they didn t exist now.
