Holy bat cave Robin, our country has gone nuts

Concerned citizens, looters, rioters, and white supremacists descended on the capitol building Wednesday. To add insult to injury, our president either planned the attack, egged it on, or at the...

President Trump, this one is unforgivable

Over the last four years for good or bad you were the president, and unlike party conscious idiots I tried to give you the respect the office deserves. I defended you when you made stupid statements...

 

Well, I hope you all had a good Christmas

This is the first year in probably the last 40 that there was no Christmas breakfast. The festive mood was lost when I tested positive for the Covid. I thought I had a cold for a couple of days, then...

 

Merry Christmas to all

I hope it is good for you. If you want to give me a present, thank you. Either leave it on your porch or mine, and I will spray it with Lysol and then open it. I use peppermint scent, so the cookies...

 

Watch the politicians

My brother the conspiracy theorist says when you have major events like the Super Bowl everyone is watching them and not the lawmakers. This is when laws and bills are passed that do not benefit the A...

Sure glad we pay the preacher better in Alva than they do west of us

Buffalo had 13+ inches of snow. I liked our storm lots better. The only downside for me is the salvage is a quagmire for the crusher guys. They are doing a great job, but if they don’t hurry I may...

 

Do the right thing, fearless leaders

I hope you had a good Thanksgiving, social distanced, keeping the family safe. Many thanks to all who cooked meals and made this a good Thanksgiving. Many of my figures in my pay increase rant came...

 

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone

We are going to err on the side of caution and not gather the family this year. One possibility that sounds like fun is to have an outside celebration. If the Covid calms down and the weather is good...

 

I wish the Democrats would hurry up and get control

Because of Trump and the Republicans, everyone has made so much money nobody needs to work, creating a help shortage. At least it seems that way if you are looking for help. Part of this shortage of...

Another embarrassment for our country

Happy Birthday, Cleo! Monday is the wife's birthday. I’m not sayin’ she may be getting older, but she can remember when the rainbow was in black and white. Happy birthday to my most favorite...

Don't forget to change your clock

Don't forget to turn back your clock one hour today. What a crock, more unwanted government control. Cleo wanted to vote early, so granddaughter Jennifer, Cleo and I went in Thursday. There was a...

Buckle up girls, it's gonna be a bumpy ride

The weatherman says we are going to have winter temperatures, rain, sleet, snow this week. Stay warm and dry. We watched the presidential debates Thursday evening. It was much tamer than the last...

I'm a 'public nuisance'

The city called me a “public nuisance” in the legal notices in the paper. That would insult some people, but not me. It’s the nature of my business. Some women have been calling me a public...

The lady moderator did a pretty good job of maintaining control

I sat through the vice-presidential debates with Justin and Cleo on Wednesday. It was much quieter than the presidential debates. The lady moderator did a pretty good job of maintaining control. Both...

I'm so embarrassed

I usually limit my watching of presidential debates to channel surfing during commercials, but Cleo wanted to learn what the candidates had to offer the people of the United States. Unfortunately,...

 

Responsibility has gone by the wayside in modern times

I try not to dwell every week about COVID-19, elections and the Boy Scouts' problems because I am sure you are already getting all you can stand on the news. A legislator has proposed legislation to...

 

Visiting a store that sells rocks

A while back we were in Waynoka and Cleo saw a rock shop there, but it was closed. Last Sunday they were going to be open, so Justin took Cleo and me on tour. Granddaughter Jaylyn and her friend went...

 

'You just thought we were gone'

In the Godfather movie one of Michael Corleone's famous lines is, "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in." That's how I feel about the weeds. If it had not rained this past week, I was f...

 

This really is that simple

I support police officers, but not the ones who commit crimes. I support protesters, but not the ones who commit crimes. I forgot one important birthday last week. My great grandson Drake's birthday...

We had two birthdays in the Scribner family this week

My sister-in-law (Jack's wife) Sandy and our granddaughter Jaylyn both celebrated their birthday on Thursday. Jaylyn's was a milestone. She turned 18. It seems like only yesterday she was JUST 17....

TV watching ruined last week

What a bummer! The Democratic Convention was on primetime this last week. It’s bad enough I have to listen to some politician rave on sporadically, but they all ganged up in one place and ruined my...

Stick a fork in me, I'm done

First, protesters, please go home. I've got the message. I know you are unhappy. I know you want changes. I know more progress can be made by giving your message through the media, lobbying Congress,...

Thanks for all the happy birthday wishes last week

Amy Mayes, Sarita Simon and I all share Aug. 2 as our birthday. I am the senior member of the trio by several years. I am so old I can remember when the Dead Sea was just sick! I have been watching...

Free advice is like free kittens

In this week’s Newsgram the first Action Ad was for free kittens. Next to free advice, free kittens are the most offered thing in the world. The place to get the kittens was called Miller’s Cat...

Well Wal-Mart has caused excitement

You now need to wear a mask to go inside. A few people are really excited about this infringement of their freedoms. While I can understand this view, they really need to look at it from another...
