Had a nice chat at the front counter Tuesday with Winnie Burrow. Don’t know exactly how many years we’ve been chatting, but it’s been ever since her son, Carl, worked here. He’s now the VP of sales for a big computer company and travels all over the world, most recently to Europe and South Africa.
How’s 2017 going so far for you? Fine, I hope. Kimball and I were in bed by 9:30 New Year’s eve. I woke up about 11:30 and went to the kitchen to eat a snack so I could go back to sleep. I stayed up until midnight so I could wish Kimball a Happy New
Here we are just about to step into 2017. I remember, as most of you likely do, that some would-be prophets thought the world would end when the calendar turned from 19 to 20. And they said the computers couldn’t handle the turn over. I checked that out by lying to my computer – changing
On Monday, Kimball and I had just finished eating lunch when Mary came in with a sheet of paper which she handed me. I saw that it was an obituary and started reading it. I saw that it was for a Mrs. Sheldon who was a co-owner of the funeral home and thought it was

Just received a death notice this morning on an old friend who has known me since I was born, Bernice Elliot Estes Neely Root. Her name was pronounced Burnace, not Berneece.

Hope everybody had a peaceful, satisfying and/or fun Thanksgiving. We did. Kimball did all the planning for ours. All I had to do was drive when told it was my turn. We drove to Shreveport Wednesday afternoon and evening and until about 2:30 a.m. Thursday morning to Kimball’s brother and sister-in-law’s home in Bossier City
You’ve heard no doubt or maybe have seen and even been the proverbial hog so busy rooting for acorns that he or she never took time to look up “to whence my help cometh” or forbid the thought, give a moment of thankful contemplation for all the many blessings that have fallen your way. Well,
The annual El Dorado Springs Christmas Lighting will begin in the Park at 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 21. Kimball has a yes from Lt. Gov. Mike Parson, Rep. Warren Love and Cedar County Sheriff James McCrary.
