November 6, 2017 – Thought for the Week

Last Saturday I missed the Fall Festival to be part of a memorial service for a lady who was part of the Whitesboro congregation.  Mazona was an extraordinary homemaker.  Angi and I often got to eat with Clyde and Mazona in their home out in the country outside Sherman.  During the service I remembered something […]

October 10, 2017 – Thought for the Week

Public education may be crumbling in many of our cities, but if American schoolchildren are still taught history at all, they probably do know that on this day, five hundred and twenty five years ago, Christopher Columbus (they will not know that this Hispanicized Genoese sailor, born Christoffa Corombo, knew himself as Cristóbal Colón) made […]
