Cheers for the Lake Granbury Medical Center!
My husband and I have retired and are newcomers to Granbury, moving here from Midland in March.
Two weeks ago, I had a huge flare-up of my three-year colitis problem and desperately needed medical help. We arrived at the ER and was immediately taken into a room, meeting with Dr. K. Sistrunk.
After some questioning, she quickly diagnosed my situation starting with a cat scan, IVs … the works.… Read the rest
The agenda for yesterday’s monthly meeting of the Hood County Bar Association included discussion about possibly utilizing a county building and attorney volunteers to offer a free legal clinic to the public.
The clinics, said Bar Association President Daniel Webb, could help pro se litigants be better prepared when they represent themselves in court.
The Bar Association is to be commended for this plan of action.… Read the rest
Ketchup, or catsup or catchup?
Whatever you prefer to call it, we slather it on hamburgers, hotdogs, meatloaf and scrambled eggs and more, oblivious to its importance in our lives.
Historically, it’s been America’s most widely used condiment – now found in 97 percent of all kitchens – a showing matched only by salt, pepper, sugar, and most recently, salsa.
My husband came home the other day with an old ketchup bottle he found in a field buried in the ground.… Read the rest
I had dinner with my girlfriends Monday night, and my friend, Shanna, was wearing some fabulous pants.
One of our first conversations of the dinner was about how much we all loved them. One of the other girls has the same pair, and every time either of them wear them, we can’t help but talk about them.
As we were gushing, Shanna said that her husband has finally started to “almost” like them.… Read the rest
Fall is here, and the holidays are fast approaching. With all that goes on during the holidays, it is easy to forget about some things. One thing that you do want to think about is your septic system.
During the holiday season, it is not uncommon for septic systems to malfunction. This means that a system has more wastewater entering the septic system than it can handle.… Read the rest
When the facts of what happened on the morning of Jan. 21 in the Spanish Trail subdivision began to unfold, I started wondering what kind of a monster would commit such horrible crimes.
Was this some sort of big-time gangster out of the Metroplex, or maybe a hardened prison inmate who escaped and was desperate to avoid a return to prison?… Read the rest
Our citizens, in general, wait – too patiently, too quietly – for a big dose of indignation.
Used to, folks usually spoke of “righteous indignation.” Today, most would consider other kinds – hopeful that a few righteous ones might slip through, jarring us from our lethargy.
We hunker, fearful of both the real and imagined. If we make any noise at all, we whimper instead of exclaim.… Read the rest
We recently received a bill of over $300 to cover the yearly health check-up and maintenance for our cat, Dexter.
I asked the doctor “About this bill – are kitty cats covered by Obamacare?”
The answer was “No.” (Apparently the vet already heard this question from others and was not amused.)
I am grateful for the hearings on Obamacare. It has forced both sides to wade through the misinformation and clarify what this plan hopes to accomplish.… Read the rest
