The Richland Springs Report

I had to dig out my warm jacket and snuggly-blanket for the couch. I just don’t do cold anymore. It really is sad that you can live for 21 years in a snowy environment, then start complaining about a cold snap. No fear, 80 degrees is near, and life will be good again.

The Richland Springs Report

We’ve been doing fairly well as far as the sick season is concerned, but it looks as if the flu and strep season is about to hit us here in Richland Springs. We’ve had a few cases, but last week our absentee list grew longer. I hope it all comes to an end quickly.

Tuesday is voting day and I hope and pray everyone went out and voted in their respective primaries. I am ashamed to say I have never really taken the primaries seriously. I am even more ashamed to say I haven’t looked at the propositions closely. One of my students was the person who clued me in to the differences. Did you know that the propositions for the Democratic and Republican parties were totally different? Now that I have studied them, I understand.

The Republican ticket wants you to vote on things they think are important for their party platform. The Democratic propositions do the same for them. I shall pay more attention in the future.

By the time this column comes out, Richland Springs will either be celebrating a monumental record breaking 9th State Championship or we will be grieving and preparing for another run at that title next year. Everyone knows "Coyotes fight; never die."

Sometimes you hear people say the Coyotes' fight never dies. Either way you put it, the fight in Coyotes never dies or the Coyotes fight and never die. We will fight a good fight. It is a little unnerving that we are favored to win handily. We all know things happen. Whatever the outcome, there will be a crowd of Coyote fans cheering their team on to victory. May God keep them and all the travelers from both teams safe. I am excited because I have never been to “Jerry’s World,” and I expect to be stunned by its magnificence. It will be on Fox Sports, if you can’t make it to the game.

Everyone get ready to mark your calendars for June 29th. That’s the city clean-up day. New Mayor, Johnnie Reeves, has called for an all hands on deck to help clean up our little town. Coach Rigdon has said some of the football boys will assist. Others have also volunteered tools and larger equipment. I hope you will all turn out to clean up. Russ is going to go down and see what he can do. I will be in Canada enjoying lake life. So, I hope the rest of you will cover my absence and show up to help. Wouldn’t it be lovely if we could make downtown sparkle and shine?

The Richland Springs Report

I’m snuggled up on the couch watching my favorite player of all time getting ready to lose his match to a young man almost half his age. Although Roger is not playing well, he is still staying close. Everyone must lose; that is part of the game. I just hate to have him lose to someone who is brash and not quite the same genre of gentleman as Roger.

One of the qualities that makes Federer beloved of all tennis fans is his quiet sportsmanship and excellent playing skills. He is not braggadocios or wild. He just plays the game nicely. I really wanted young Tiafoe to win his match, but I disliked his outlandish display of bare chest pounding antics. Those just don’t go with the tennis I know. I expect to see soccer players throw their shirts around and strut their stuff, but not tennis players. I guess I am just a little old school person. I hope all these young athletes coming up take a good solid look at the manners of the men who have held this game for so long.

I am not a fan of cold weather. I realize thatTexas cold is nowhere near Canadian cold, but it is not to my taste. I am comfortable in the 60 to 90 range. Australia was pretty close to that mark, but once you go there the cost of visiting family is horrendous.

It was while I was walking down a dark street in Sydney that I realized that should anything happen to me, my parents would never get closure and certainly couldn’t come and look for me. It also made me grow up just a little and gain an understanding of that annoying parental habit of wanting to know where you are and where you are going. I was so sure I could take care of myself. How little we understand when we are young and arrogant. Times and kids have not changed very much.

Our beautiful break is over, and it’s time to get back to work. The San Saba County Stock Show and Youth Fair is this Thursday through Saturday. The kids are excited, but I am not ready.

Typically, we have multiple projects to bring to the show, but I must be falling down on the job because my classes are looking bleak when it comes to show material. Mr. Dennis has the show animals ready. My wishes are for everyone to show well and enjoy themselves.

The Richland Springs Report

Welcome 2019. We are welcoming the New Year on a frosty note. Now comes the post-holiday let down. As a grandparent and parent a house full of children is absolute heaven. The peace after everyone is gone is bitterly sublime but needed after the hustle and bustle. I know it is a little morbid, but when everyone leaves a sadness descends on my heart. Russ and I are getting up there in years and tomorrow is not promised. I feel as if this will be the last time I see any of my precious family. I know that is silly, and I certainly don’t stay in that state, but for a few minutes I shed my momma’s tears.

Our family has trickled in a few at a time this year.
