The Rock Wall

I’m back…after a 10 week stay in various medical facilities. I don’t know what Kimball has told you because they didn’t forward me the paper. I do know that she, Davis and Gwen did a fine job of keeping the paper running while I was flat on my back. Kind of like my birthday, I

The ramp builders did put the orange dots on the new construction downtown. Not to insult anybody, but I liked the old ramps better. They just seemed to fit perfectly and were less likely to be run over by a vehicle. Well, I was surprised to learn from the fire report that the last house

I must have scared my crocus last week – or insulted them. They’re popping up all over the south yard. Mostly yellows and oranges and some purple. There are daffodils everywhere – or what are supposed to be daffodils and a bunch of hospital flowers I stuck in the yard seven years ago. I never

March 1st is the beginning of meteorological Spring. That sounds so much better than waiting until March 20. Besides, my faithful little crocus north of my house has bloomed. Just one tiny pale-yellow bloom. I’ve checked my south yard for the jumbo crocus, but they’re all scaredy cats down there. They’ll wait until later in

A big thank you to my neighborly neighbor, Cory Gayman, who dug out a foot path from the street to my door – twice. And thank goodness the sidewalk destruction/construction people are back to work on my little corner of El Dorado Springs. I know they didn’t deliberately dig a hole and walk away to

I was absolutely sure last week that the groundhog would not see his shadow. But he did and now we’re getting all six week’s worth of winter in six days. This Sunday is Valentine’s Day and we have a Love Story on the front page as well as Valentine stats provided by the El Dorado

Gayle Teague called me two times last week. Once to tell me about the rock heart on Hainline and the second time to tell me she couldn’t get hearts out of her mind and suggested that readers look for heart shaped objects in nature. Take a picture and send them to the SUN. I like

Adrian was in town this past weekend. She drove in from St. Francisville on Friday, spent Saturday morning visiting with me and checking out some of El Dorado Springs’ newest establishments and then on to Springfield to be with her Dad. She left early Sunday morning to make the trip back to Louisiana.   As

Kenny seems to be improving. He has great nurses and doctors that I’m sure would really like him to get out of ICU. He hasn’t commented one way or the other. Howard Hamilton’s biscuits are super. The recipe is sort of like – take flour, baking powder, shortening and milk – toss in a bowl,
