2 Cents Worth

By Carol Greenway- Holland

Good morning to all my friends who are reading this story, by the time you read it, Joe and I will be back in Aspermont, where the sun shines! I told some of my friends I was going to put sun tan lotion on because my skin had not seen the sun in 30 days while we were at Port Aransas, Texas. Joe got to fish maybe two days, overcast sky, cold, and as he said, “I really didn’t care if I had caught anything to keep I would have had to clean it!” We really had a good time visiting with all the friends, and relatives anyway so even though it was cold, I had left my big coat at home because we were going south. Guess who had to go buy her a heavy wind breaker?

HEAVENS TO MERGATROYD

By Scotty Daniel

Lost words from our childhood: Words gone as fast as the buggy whip!

The other day an elderly (75) grandmother said something to her grandson about driving a Jalopy and he said “what the heck is a Jalopy?” She knew she was old ... But not that old. “I hope you are Hunky Dory!”

“Well, don’t touch that dial, carbon copy, you sound like a broken record and hung out to dry.”

2 Cents Worth

By Carol Greenway- Holland

Wow! Grab you a glass of tea and set with me awhile. We went down to the park, course we were early but the park was full of people. I asked one of them what’s going on, and she said, “Oh! Big Foot is coming down the channel. So Joe and I joined the crowd, what a big old rig, and I mean a huge oil rig, it took up the whole channel They had to stop the ferry long enough to get it by, and after it left the part of the park you could watch it at the south jetty, so we all went to the south jetty to see it slowly go into the gulf. The little paper like ours described it as an off shore tension leg platform rig, It is being towed south of New Orleans, designed to produce 75,000 barrels of oil and so much gas every day.

Governors urge congressional leaders to pass disaster aid funding

By Ed Sterling

AUSTIN — Gov. Greg Abbott and the governors of California, Puerto Rico and Florida on Jan. 24 asked U.S. House and Senate leaders to hurry up and pass supplemental disaster funding, and to send the legislation to President Trump.

“Over the past several months, we have received numerous assurances that adequate disaster funding was imminent,” the governors wrote in a joint letter. “Its continued delay only exacerbates ongoing uncertainty in devastated areas. Simply put, the communities devastated by these storms cannot be completely put back together until the federal government makes good on its promise to our citizens. If ever there was a time and role for the federal government to urgently help its citizens rebuild communities damaged by epochal disasters, now is the time to step up and fill that role.”

2 Cents Worth

By Carol Greenway-Holland

Good morning to all of you from Port Aransas, Texas, the sun is shinning this morning, my attitude is much better!!!! Let me tell you it has been cold here in Port Aransas, 32 degrees is cold down here, the wind blows just about like it does in Aspermont, Texas, and let me tell you it is cold. The Shark Reef Resort was so nice to us, we were going to buy us an electric little heater for our room because I was cold, and she said, “ Let me get you one from the office, and brought me two” Let me tell you Joe and I have used both of them, so since it’s been too cold for Joe to fish we have toured the island, Padre Island, and Corpus Christi.

TIME TO CLEAN HOUSE

There are two potential violators of man’s rights: the criminals and the government. The great achievement of America was to draw a distinction between these two - by forbidding to the second the legalized version of the activities of the first.

Unfortunately, degeneration of human values is accelerating, and it is a huge attraction for politicians. Politicians are nonproducers, so they live only on the production and substance of producers.

The politicians who inhabit the D. C. cesspool under the name of “public servant” covet power above all else and to them the U.S. Constitution - which they swore an oath to defend - is a meaningless and antiquated document.
