During my lifetime, I’ve reached a lot of milestones on the way to the tombstone. For instance, walking, talking, feeding myself, going from diapers to big girl panties, getting my driver’s license, graduation, marriage, babies and work accomplishments. Some of those milestones were really great and cause for celebration but at a certain point in the journey it’s like someone hits rewind. Your kids take your keys, your underwear comes from a box again and you’re babbling in your geriatric highchair.

Systematic recording of weather data did not begin until about 1895, just in time to collect the data of a Texas “Blue Norther” of the winter of 1899. Some claim the 1899 “Blue Norther” was the bluest the state ever suffered.

As much as I love to shop local, there’s one guilty pleasure outside Navasota that my gentleman friend and I are unapologetic about engaging in and that’s our patronage of the French bistro in College Station, LePetit Cochon.

Annie Laverne Wallingford Etheredge, age 98, went home to be with her Lord Sunday, February 18, 2024. This date happened to be the birthday of her beloved husband, John, and we have no doubt that he was waiting with open arms for her to join him in celebration. “Bern,” as she was known to most of her family had struggled with Parkinson’s and other health issues for many years, but was never one to complain or ask, “why me?” She was continuously searching for God’s “purpose” for her still being on this earth. Of course, we all knew exactly what His reason was for keeping her here: she was a most faithful disciple, always learning from His Word and putting that Truth into practice with all those she touched. She was a remarkable person, and her influence will be felt for generations to come.
