Suspicious Email? Gee…Let Me Think About This

So, I'm checking one of my email accounts, and I see one with the subject line: "From Colonel Nick Logan."

"Hmm...," I think to myself. "I don't know anybody named 'Colonel Nick Logan.' I have a brother who retired from the California Army National Guard years ago as a Colonel, but that's not his name. I know a few people named 'Nick,' but none of them are in the military, to my knowledge. And I don't believe I know anybody whose last name is 'Logan.' Ahh...a mystery!" Now, it took much longer to write that than it did to think it, but I digress. So, my curiosity piqued (and my Crap Detector a-tinglin'), I opened the email on my iPhone ('cause it's harder to hack into those than a computer; even I know that). And here, just as it was in my email inbox, is what the mysterious missive said:

The Doctor Is In

One of the many things we've had to deal with since we relocated to Victoria from El Campo has been finding a Primary Care Physician for my wife Sweetie and me. When we lived in Arkansas, we saw the same PCP for eight of the nine years we were there. So, it's very important to us that we find someone who is patient (no pun intended), is up on the latest innovations in medicine, asks the right questions, and listens to our questions and provides clear, easy-to-understand answers.

25 Words That Have A Totally Different Meaning In Texas

I love lists that writers come up with about Texas. Having lived here for just shy of two years myself, I always find them educational and, often, amusing. Texas has its own pace, its own attitude, and--according to this list--its own vocabulary when it comes to the 25 words mentioned.

Video: Skeeter Sings Willie Nelson’s “You Ought To Hear Me Cry”

Here's a video from the Flag City Opry performance on 5/20/14. It's one of my favorite old Willie Nelson songs, "You Ought To Hear Me Cry." Willie wrote and recorded this one back in the 1960's, when he was signed to the RCA Victor label. I wasn't released as a single until 1977. Two years prior, in 1975, Willie had released "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain" from his Columbia Records smash debut album, Red-Headed Stranger.

Don’t Let an Emergency Catch You Off Guard

Here are some very timely and helpful hints from the local chapter of the Better Business Bureau on how to be prepared for an emergency situation:

In Texas, summer doesn’t just mean it’s time for vacations, it also brings hurricanes and the potential for severe storms. Hurricane hazards come in many forms, including storm surge, heavy rainfall, inland flooding, high winds, tornadoes, and rip currents. Better Business Bureau serving Central, Coastal, Southwest Texas and the Permian Basin urges families to prepare for the unexpected and devise their own emergency preparedness plans.  It’s important to assess and prepare for their local disaster risks and unplanned emergencies.

Rent-A-Gent

I can't stay up late enough these days to watch Nightline on ABC. Well, to be honest, I never watched it very often when I could stay up that late. But I saw this story online, and it looked interesting. Not because I fancy myself the type of guy they're looking for (besides, I signed a "non-compete" with my wife, Sweetie), but because I'm always fascinated by stories with a different "twist" on the way things have been done before. So, when I saw this story about a company that hires out "gentlemen" to ladies for two hours at a time (with no hanky-panky involved), I thought it was blog-worthy.

Meet Cuero’s Grumpiest Citizen

A recent letter to the Editor of the Victoria Advocate illustrates the fact that just because someone is a dog-lover, that love doesn't always extend to others, especially children. Mr. Matthew Hough of Cuero felt the need to express his disdain for the local kids who ask if they can pet his dog when Mr. Hough takes the pooch for a walk in the local park. What follows is an example of grumpiness rarely found on public display.
