THE WEEKENDER by Clyde Black:

“I Pondered A Lot”  theweekender@live.com  People ponder.  It’s a healthy thing to ponder; at least it’s supposed to be.  I wouldn’t suggest pondering how to rob a bank or get your next hit of meth.  Those are wicked and evil pondering thoughts and will eventually lead to all kinds of negative situations.  It’s a good thing to ponder yourself and your own behavior.  Generally, we are all responsible for our situations.  Although today it’s easy to blame someone else because personal responsibility doesn’t seem be an expected norm of society.  Nevertheless, I do ponder.  Over the New Year’s holiday, I pondered a lot.  I had a couple of days off and found myself pondering my life, my past, my successes and my failures.  I thought a lot about my family and for some reason started thinking about my brothers-in-law.  I have three sisters and I dearly love them all.  I probably wasn’t a very good big brother because at critical times in their lives I was off having my adventure in Vietnam.  They all married which means I had three brothers-in-law.  Well, not so fast.  I actually had 6 of them due to life’s circumstances and stuff.  Right now, as far as the sister’s go, I only have one brother-in-law.  Congratulations, Chuck.  You are like the sole survivor of that group and I love you dearly.  You have been...

HORACE MCQUEEN: Cheaper in the country

Everything is not always “cheaper in the country”.  Oft times it’s a lot higher! Some folks believe that living in rural areas leads to lower living costs—but not so! Groceries, fuel, and other necessities can be bought “in town” for less than at the rural outposts. Just take a few minutes sometime to compare sale ads from the major grocery stores. The ads in the larger city papers offer prices often lots less than the same grocery company small town stores. When asked about the reasons for the difference in prices, one grocery store official said their smaller stores cost more to operate than the larger ones. A couple of examples are significant. Progresso soups were two cans for $3 at the smaller stores—and at the larger stores the soups cost $1 a can. The same grocery chain was selling Hormel black label bacon for $4.49 a pound at their big stores—and at the smaller stores $4.99. Sweet potatoes were 20-cents a pound difference between the large and small stores. But for those of us who are country dwellers, having a grocery store handy for groceries when needed is a time and mile-saver. Folks with stock tanks or farm ponds can have a ready source of fun by taking care of the fish. Over the winter months, fish still must eat—but less feed is required. A rule of thumb...
