Opinion

Listen To Life
Dr. Joey Faucette
Listen To Life

Is it hot where you live?

It was one of the first hot summer days of the year.  I was working outside on our farm.  I don’t know about you, but it takes me a few times of working outside in the heat for my body to adjust.  Since this was one of the first hot days, my body had not adjusted yet.  So I was feeling pretty hot, sweaty, and tired out there working away.  

I stopped to take my hat off and wipe my brow and in doing so looked up.  And what to my wandering eyes should appear?  Vultures.  That’s right, three or four vultures were circling over me.  And I thought to myself, “I must be feeling worse than I know.”  I stood there and watched them for a few moments as they circled and circled me, eyeing me to see whether I would make it or not.  The good news is they passed on over to somewhere else.

Often times in life, it seems like something ominous is circling you—rising interest rates or rumors of layoffs or a loved one has a terminal disease.  In those times, remind yourself that life or business is better than it seems.  That’ll it pass…as you live positive and work positive today.

Outdoor Truths
Gary Miller
Outdoor Truths
   As a youngster, there was one activity that characterized my summers – swimming. I loved to go to the public swimming pool and stay until my fingers and toes were wrinkled up like prunes. It was the place to be as a teenager in the late 70’s. Since there were no tanning beds, the girls would all show up with towels, tanning lotion, and a radio, and lay in the sun until the local DJ would give the cue to turn. The guys, on the other hand, would line up at the diving boards (which just happened to be by the girls) and take turns doing our best imitation of an Olympic diver. Unlike today, our swimming pool was equipped with both a high dive and a shorter one and there were always a couple of older guys who were willing to teach us younger ones the art of perfecting certain dives. I can remember learning full and half gainers, 1 ½’s, and of course all of the maneuvers that provided the biggest splash (These sort of determined male dominance among the girls and I was never the dominate male)
