Opinion

Listen To Life
Dr. Joey Faucette
Listen To Life

Have you noticed that there’s a whole lot to life that changes, even blue jeans?

   I’m trying to figure out something today.  Maybe you can help me.  I’m trying to understand what’s changed about blue jeans.

   Growing up in the 60s, of course, I wore blue jeans like everyone else; you know, the kind with patches on them.  Back then, my Mom had to buy me “slims” because of my thin waist and long legs.

   A few months back, my wife bought me some jeans that were called “relaxed fit.”  Now frankly I have no idea what that means, but while the jeans were the correct size, they didn’t fit.  They were too big.  So she went back and got me the same size in a style known as “regular.”  And they fit.

   So does this mean that yesterday’s slim is now today’s regular?  And that today’s “relaxed fit” is yesterday’s regular?  I mean, my body feels “relaxed.”  I go to the gym and run and work out a little so I’m not flabby relaxed, but I didn’t think I was “regular” either.

   There’s a whole lot to life that changes.  How do you deal with it?  Focus on the positive as you work positive and live positive today.

Outdoor Truths
Gary Miller
Outdoor Truths
 I never can remember ever liking school as a child. Most of my memories are of recess and girls. However, I do recall springtime in grade school. It was during that time that I was allowed to ride my bike to school. I can still remember breathing the cool, damp air as we road past the foundry and the ice plant, and across the railroad tracks, to the East End Elementary School. I remember very little about the destination but the journey is still vivid in my mind. The trip was only about two miles long but it seemed like an adventure. My neighborhood friends and I would gather up for the trip each morning. We looked like a future motorcycle gang and we had the nicknames to match. I’m glad my parents gave me such freedom.
