Things We Don't See At Home

Things we saw in the Texas Panhandle this weekend that we don't see at home:

A Psalm 8 sunset

Skies that are not cloudy all day


A state highway with no one else on it but us for 30 minutes;

Big Texas hair;

Vietnam Era Veterans recognized and honored with the singing of " God Bless America" (Kate Smith-style);

Low to no humidity;

Old friends who don't seem that old;

A showing of Cat Ballou at the only local movie theatre;

Sitting outside visiting over our morning cups of coffee;

" My daughter turned out very well, but I'm thinking of having my son put to sleep"-- inscription in the class memory book by one classmate (????)

"God bless y'all, Jean"-- written on our bill at a restaurant by our waitress.

God bless you, too, every one.

What!! This is a violation of your First Amendment freedom from religion. Call the ACLU and sue!
