A Look Through Lindy's Window

Since Sunday was such a gorgeous day and there was no threat of severe weather, it seemed a perfect day to put Patches in the car and head toward Ink’s Lake for an afternoon outing. I have to say in all my many years of living this is the only place I have lived where no matter the season, a long drive is a pleasant and beautiful event.

Lady Dillo Track Report

The Lady Dillos competed in the District 27-AA track meet this past week. We were fortunate enough to be able to host the event at our home track and it turned out to be a beautiful day with great competition. I am extremely proud of these young ladies for the way they competed and represented our school.

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. Which is pretty much none. Not that I’ve ever hunted waterfowl with lead shot. I don’t think the law is necessary, but I still comply with it. Until it’s changed, assuming people will one day admit I’m right about everything, I will keep obeying that law. I can’t hit much with a shotgun, anyway, so the type of projectile makes very little difference to me.

The Idle American

By Dr. Don Newbury
 
Concern shouldn’t rise to the level of secession from the union, but adopted Texan Tony Romo— as well as home grown luminaries Willie Nelson and Matt McConaughey—failed us miserably. The trio squandered opportunities to shore up Old West images on Jimmy Kimmel’s TV show aired nationally for an entire week from Austin during its South by Southwest Festival. I mean there were “slam dunk” chances for these guys—and others—to “slather up” all things Texan. In retrospect, it was mostly Kimmel and his crew leading the “up whooping” at the movie/ music/technology SXSW event that brought beaucoup visitors to Austin.
