It’s About Time…

By Dr. Don Newbury.
 
Some aspect of time steals quietly into our psyche in all conscious moments, and our use or abuse of it is central to much poetry, lyrics, scripts, conversations—you name it. Time, we’velongclaimed, is—or is not—on our side. It marches on, but sometimes seems to stand still. Though it deserves unending respect, its import is easily kicked to the side, like a soft drink can on life’s highway.

The Idle American

One can determine much about a man by observation, taking note of the way he dresses and carries himself. Overalls—like “duded-up” western wear—can easily deceive, however. Overalls carry no guarantee that the guy farms, nor do boots and chaps necessarily mean the man wearing them has ever mounted a horse.

All Pipers Must be Paid…

By Dr. Don Newbury
 
Bitter as the pill may taste, it is one each generation has a hard time swallowing: The piper must be paid. It’s a fundamental truth, muddled, of course, when “layaway plans” were trumped by credit purchases. “Buying now, paying later” is bait easily ingested, sliding down as smoothly as boiled okra in a gullet greased with WD-40.

A Saturday Night To Dig Digg's

Last Saturday night I decided to have an early birthday celebration. The band R.U. Redy was booked at Digg’s and I have become very good friends with lead singers David Robertson and Keri Thomas so I thought I would spend the evening enjoying their talent. Harold had spent most of the weekend in Richland Springs helping our friend, George Shields, from the coast at his ranch preparing his vineyard for spring, was exhausted and had no desire to do anything but spend some time on the couch with his eyes shut. Furthermore, he said in order for it to be a true birthday celebration I had to be free of worry as far as Patty Wagon was concerned so he stayed home to babysit and it worked out well. We all know the poor dog becomes suicidal, manic and goes completely over the edge when left alone.
