My oldest son graduates from college this week and I am so proud. Every parent has dreams when they hold a newborn that they will grow up and graduate from college. I’ve got another boy who will graduate from Houston High School in two short years. I am so proud of James, too. But his […]
At my house we have a job-jar. It’s a jar filled with jobs Sara feels need tending to on the Ingram Plantation. We’ve had this system for the past 20-years. I wake up most Saturday mornings and pull out a job. When it’s finished I pull out another. The job-jar has never been empty. It’s […]
We moved to Houston five years ago and have attended every Flywheel Festival since – spring and fall. Our first year here we got to pull the lanyard on the Keck-Gonnerman steam tractor and make it whistle. The next year we got to push the button at the Friday morning anvil shoot. We’ve been a […]

Not long after I moved to Houston I pulled up to the stoplight on the Courthouse Square on a summer night in my old truck and there was an elected official in his old truck. We all know what goes through the minds of two boys when they pull up to a stoplight in old […]
A wise old politician once told me all politics is local. After watching campaigns, elections and political shenanigans for 25 years, I’ve come to the conclusion this is true. When you look at the national picture, you have to remember that it all filters down to a particular region or community heading to the polls […]
The snow is gone. I thought the last pile would be that massive snow drift city crews pushed up on the northeast corner of the Fire Station. But those busy guys came back and loaded that heap into a dump truck and carried it off. I was out at the Courthouse office on Sunday and […]
We hear people talk about quality of life all the time. It’s one of those feel-good phrases that are loved by local, state and federal politicians when they want to say something good without really saying something at all. Think about it. What is quality of life? A person’s health is one factor when we […]
