Patchwork

The time has come for me to re-organize and throw things away. I wonder how many times I’ve said this in the past 30 years. I am a packrat extraordinaire!! Books, newspapers, clipping, greeting cards, old programs from plays, football, pageants and dance recitals, pictures galore and more.

Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

STATE WIDE LOUISIANA POLITICS

How is this shaping up?  In the governor’s race, candidate for State Rep. John Bel Edwards, D-Amite, made a $200,000 me-dia buy that took a lot of jabs at Scott Angelle.  He pointed out “The bottom line is Scott Angelle is only telling half the story” (de-scribing Edwards as a Christian and a West Point graduate.)  He points out Angelle is driven by Bobby Jindal and has been one of his workhorses for many years.

MAKE IT LOOK GOOD
 
Louisiana’s credit rating has recently been evaluated by several agencies, both Moody’s and S&P. Governor Jindal would have made me a very good used car salesman. He tries to make something that looks bad look good. In this case, it was our credit rating. He has publicly stated that the agencies didn’t lower their rating on the existing outstanding general obligation bonds. That is true, but this is what Jindal did not tell you. This was done because our state constitution gives those bonds first-call, even before the employee’s retirement benefits (all the money in the state treasury). If we go broke in this state, those bonds will be paid. Even at that,we must realize that the statebonds could cost more money in the future.

Remembering When. . .

by Lola Russell

 

If I had decided to make a resolution for 2015, I would have said that I would quit holding on to so much stuff. One of my daily devotions was about that very thing. This lady had an old spinning wheel that had belonged to her great, great grandmother. One of her cousins had admired it for many years and asked her if she could have it. Reluctantly at first, she gave it to her. After all it was her ancestor, also.

Patchwork

by donna smith ammons
 
Darby, our newest grandchild visited in Many for the first time last weekend. Needless to say, her great grandmother, Lois Barnhill, was thrilled. Of course, this Grammie was excited too. Oldest son Davy spent Saturday afternoon with Riley Kate and Braeden, strolling down Memory Lane. For some reason, he decided to crawl up in the attic over the garage. Several hours later, after handing down boxes of “stuff” and bins of toys, books and magazine, we started sorting. It was almost like Christmas!!

WILLIAMS GOT CAUGHT
 
How many times have you heard it said, “I know it’s true because I heard it on the radio this morning”. How many times have you heard it said some news channels are very biased and you must screen what they say. They might leave something out of a news story or add a word or two that affects your thinking. NBC news anchor, Bryan Williams, got caught. It seems that in 2004 he reported on a trip to Iraq and swayed the story to where you thought he was in the actual gunfire, as he described the event. Why he did this, I don’t know, except perhaps it made him seem more “involved” or macho. At times they will twist things in the media and get away with it, but this time it didn’t work. It seems the one who was actually involved, which was the combat soldier, continued to push for the truth to come out.

Patchwork

Our new grandchild, almost eight-week-old Darby Rinn, is dearly loved by her big sister and big brother, Riley Kate and Braeden. Both have become great baby-holders (even though Braeden sometimes falls asleep. No matter, they are safe and sound as they both catch a nap!! Riley is a good little mother, not only to the baby, but also doing chores around the house. After receiving a kid’s cookbook for Christmas, she’s even been helping more in the kitchen.
